More snow squees, and a new painting of me!

Mom's been super busy this week, so not much time fur blogging. But I had to share these two snow squee pictures wiff you. We still have lots of snow here - it melts a little, then we get a little more. Sometimes it has the consistency of a giant sno-cone. Sometimes it's light and fluffy. Sometimes it's frozen hard and good fur snowwalking.

Here I am being cute some more. Go ahead and stare. You know you want to.

And here is new painting mom painted of me. She wanted to do a bold and unusual "urban style" dog portrait, something that she hasn't tried before. What do you guys think?

The painting is really nice - sophisticated is a good word for it AND you, Cloud.

Excellent pictures - and painting. We love Red Cloud.

Red Cloud is wonderful although I do miss much of those loverly ears!

I would love to tell you what condition our snow is in but that would involve actually going out in it in Sub-zero windy weather, and I just don't care that much, Cloud!

Snow squees are mighty cute!

Thank you for your photos, Cloud. I'm one of the furiends asking for them. I was impressed by your mom's painting, you know why? Dang, she's got your expression down. That's tough! wow

Hi Cloud,

We were wondering if you got more snow. Ours is just about all gone. YAY! But is has turned really cold again so we are stuck in the house.

Love the new painting. What were ya looking at?

Mom says the bully sticks and moo tubes keep my toofers pearly white but Banjo must not chew them as much or as aggressively as me cause his back teeth are turning yellow. (And is breath smells yucky!) Mom is worried he'll soon start losing his teeth and then his tongue will fall out of his head. BOL

Morning Cloud...we've missed you but we've been checking by every day.
Your mom is so talented and her subject is so handsome. Mom's answer to our puzzle is very good.
NC is expecting a sleet and snow event this weekend. Our last significant snow was in 2005 so this is a big deal for us. HA!!
Happy weekend
Madi and Mom

Hi Cloud, I happened upon you through SQ via Yodi. and boy am I happy I found you. First, you are so fun to look at. You are really cute and I love your expressions and looks and ears. Your moms paintings of you are BEAUTIFUL!! She is an awesome painter. My mommy is an artist too, but doesn't find much time to paint, so she really appreciates your mom's paintings. And your posts are nothing short of hilarious. I also love getting to the squeaky in the toys too. What kind of camera does your mom use? Her pictures are awesome. I will be stopping by often. Woof! Much LOVE!

Thank you for your kind comments. Mom, Dad and I are going to Steve's viewing tonight. But all the kind comments all my new Blog friends have left are really helping my mom. Thanks for that from the bottom of my heart!

BTW, my mom has a Nikon D50. Similar to your mom's camera. Maybe your mom can share some tips because her photos ROCK!!

I know you and mom have been busy, but we'll be checking your blog for your latest update. Thanks again for the uplifting comments. Always glad to meet a nice dog like you. Glad you like my ears! I like yours too. ;-) Much LOVE!

Sorry I'm so behind...I saw this last week but haven't had much time to comment, you know, with Mango Minster and all. Anyway, tell your mom that that picture is amazing! I know, I know, how could it not be with Mr. Wonderdog as the subject!
PS: Mom wants to know if she can put Twix's painting on our blog and give you credit?
