We got sacked with snow today. In a matters of hours we received 4-6 inches of snow.

Sometimes snow can be a good thing. Example: You get told the office is closing and you get to leave 1 1/2 hours early. School is canceled and you don't have to worry about finding the extra half-hour in your day to finish the reading. You get to let the dogs off their leashes and let them run free.

Not sure what it is about snow. But it makes my dogs so excited. They literally run around in circles. The faces get covered in snowflakes. It's so fun to watch them have so much fun. But not for too long, because, hey, it gets cold quick!

Today, Cooper's girlfriend, Lily, came outside and the two get to play a little game of tag.

Here's some photos I took of the boys. They haven't changed much since I last posted pics. They're dogs. They're not supposed to change. But something did happen to Otis' lip. It almost looks like he got my cold sore. Can dogs get cold sores?

Mua! Catching Cooper kissing his girlfriend.

He's so pretty!

A close-up of Cooper.

Otis looks like he doesn't want his picture taken. I know he's saying, "Mom, don't take a photo of me with a cold sore. It's so embarrassing."


  1. That video is so cute!! And way to stay positive :)

  2. I know - dogs are so funny with snow! And you have the prettiest dogs, I love their long, soft fur!

  3. I am from MN! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. :) Sarah (the dog in the window) is maybe an Aussie/Gordon Setter mix. We're not sure. And Sydney (you can see her in other posts) is a BC/Aussie least that's what we were told. ha!

    Your dogs are SO cute!! Isn't it awesome how much they love the snow? :)

  4. The video was cute, we use to have a Springer Spaniel,and she liked to run and play in the snow.Pets are a lot of fun.

  5. Wow, thats alot of snow, glad the dogs and hopefully parents had a good time with it!

  6. lol. Even though I don't like the snow, you have to find some things positive about it. Otherwise, you'd go crazy living in MN!! The best part of the snow is watching the dogs have fun.

    I do agree that my dogs have the softest fur. Especially Cooper! He's the brown one.


What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear.
