It finally happened! While most of the eastern part of the country was complaining about digging out from a big blizzard, I sat here in the "snow belt" and complained about our lack of snow. The storm stayed too far south to blast us, but we had enough accumulation from light flurries in the last 36 hours to give us a nice fluffy blanket of the white stuff (first time there's been enough to cover the grass this season). NOW it's beginning to look a little more like Christmas!!
Don't know that the boys were as excited as I was to see the snow, but we headed out to play nonetheless. Brutus was still itty-bitty last year when the first flakes flew, and I'm not sure he remembers what it's all about. So today's post it about two firsts - Brutus' first time ever in the snow last year, and his "first time ever" (as far as he is concerned) in the snow this year! As much as he's changed (no more curling earls, now we have pink lips - think they are getting better, though) so much has stayed the same. Some of the pictures look very similar between this year and last - if you get confused, Brutus had on a green collar last year, this year's is more red!!
All right, let's get this over with....
Hmmmm. Don't know if I want to venture off the deck.
You said I did last year? Got pictures to prove it?
Yikes! You made me go out into this stuff as a puppy? How cruel!
Oh, poor little me!!
Do you hafta post this one, mom? That ear curl is so embarrassing...
OK. I'm in the snow. You happy now?
At least I'm not buried up to my elbows like I was last year!!
Much better clearance now!
Hey, at least it's edible!
My photo posing has come a long way - much more distinguished-looking now!!
Look, Mango & Dexter - I can even do blurry face!!
Can't we go inside? I'm freezing my tail off here (and that's hard to do when all you have is a nubbin!!)
Maybe if I stick out my tongue at the camera she'll get it - I'm done!!!
Hope you are cozy, warm & safe after that winter storm! At least we'll have a white Christmas after all!!
