Look what I found!!!

OMD, you guys! Do you see it?
I almost forgot what it looked like...

BARE GROUND!!! Wiff NO SNOW on it!!!

Fur those of you who don't realize the momentousness of dis, try to understand that my yard has been BURIED under deep, cold, nekkid belly freezing SNOW since the beginning of December 2009. THREE MONTHS STRAIGHT!!!

Dis little patch is the promise of Spring!
Of course the rest of my back yard still looks like DIS...

The two and three feet drifts will take a while to melt. Which lets me practice my Wonder Dog skills of Snowwalking.*

and Snowrunning...

See how deep dis snow is here? I didn't even fall through once!!


Ever popular T-Rex impression. (rawr)

Mom says it's warming up and the snow won't last much longer.
No more snow: no more snowwalking!

Yeah, yeah... it really breaks my heart!
Come on mom, lets go inside... my feets are freezing!!!


*(For those who don't know, Snowwalking is the feat of walking on top of ice-crusted snow and not falling through.)

PS. Mom still doesn't have the time to blog regularly, sorry we haven't been around much.

We have dodged the bullet on the snow belt several times this year in New England and trust me, nobody is complaining about that!

Cloud, our snow is pretty a thing of the past, we might find a speck here or there, but it was in the 50s today - time for Spring.

We just love your ears:)

And Mom, no problem, we know exactly what it means to be busy:)

Hi Cloud Snowalker,

Yep, you better enjoy that snow while you can, it ain't gonna last much longer. Spring is almost here!

Only 16 days to go. Yippee!!


Stella said...

For the days ahead, Cloud, you might want to be a little careful with Snowwalking and Snowrunning. As the snow melts, it can leave some funny places where you can sink right in. And I know how much you would dislike that!

Your pal Stella

My Brudder Ranger is Most Excellent at snowwalking, too. It must be a rat terrierist thing. Here in Collie-rado, there has been almost no snows at all. And we are actually very much sad about that. But we are very happy that you are happy that your snows is finally melting.

Last night, our humans pulled in the driveway and noted that we have landscape lights near some bushes. They had forgotten they were there because we have not seen them in months.

Hey there Cloudy-boy, my buddy!
Your mum must be really busy!...I've missed you, buddy! I must say you are doing us canines proud with your snow walking. I am sure I would sink to the bottom!
Have you seen any squirrels lately?
Tell mum that my mom sends her love.
