Dogs and Snow Horses







This is about as artistic as we get around here
"Jackson" (my son's dog)










"Maggie"  Finding a spot to poop when your regular stomping grounds are not accessible can be challenging!
"Success"

"Murphy"  " I hate winter!"




 Until next time

  1. Looks like we got the same amount of snow...now the sun is out and it's melting. That horse sculpture is AMAZING!

    1. Hi Lori,

      They say we got about 26 inches give or take with the drifts. Today we are having a combination platter of fog and rain and temps around 40. Go figure.

  2. Those sculptures are amazing. Looks like you have the same amount of snow we do. Love that photo sequence of Murphy. My dogs are finding it a challenge to find "the right spot", too. :-)

    1. Hi Wolfie,

      I was really impressed with those sculptures too. Don't know exactly when in life you realize you have a talent for that or when you find the time to cultivate it but they're pretty amazing.

      Murphy is not a ball of fire these days but he's 10 now. Maggie on the other hand is constantly hopping around and exploring. Hope this melts soon so they can get back to their old "habits".

  3. Wow! Outstanding sculptures, I am humbled. It's funny, on the very rare days that it has ever snowed here in Fred's life, he has always managed to do his big business on the deck, I have no idea why, but he's done it every time. The grass area is actually easier to get to. Weird dog.
    I love your snow pictures, it makes me think of hot chocolate.

    1. Hi Mary,

      Dogs have their weird little habits don't they? I think hot chocolate sounds like a good idea.

  4. I love that horse sculpture too.
    You have a lot more snow than us! Sounds like yours will clear up soon if you have fog and rain? Ours is supposed to freeze now... roads will be interesting tomorrow.

    1. Hi Martine,

      The fog and rain is deceiving. Our driveway is treacherous with some fancy steering on thw way down and up!

  5. More than two feet of snow!! Yikes! I am glad that you have heavy-duty machinery for moving snow around.

    The horse sculpture is outstanding. Thanks for sharing. Stay warm and dry up there.

    1. Hi Val,

      Yes, it's been a lot of fun around here lately.

  6. Wow, what beautiful blue skies and all that perfectly white snow!! Such a winter wonderland!! Looks like you've survived the "blizzard of 13" and will live to tell the tale. Your pictures are so very pretty, and everything looks so pristine. We're just same old, same old around here. Still less rain than normal, mild temps, plants thinking we're just about ready for spring, and grass is growing. Oh, add in muddy horses. :) Your world is so much more picturesque than ours is. Glad all is well, and thank you for sharing your beautiful shots with us!

    1. Hi Lorie,

      I agree it looks pretty. Then you have to deal with it and drive in it and it stops being so picturesque and more of a pain in the butt.

  7. So lovely! But I think Jackson as a snow sculpture is divine too! Very funny!

  8. Hi Juliette,

    Jackson is a cutie. My son sent me that picture of him having fun in the snow.

  9. Whewee!! That's alot of snow!
    Yes, by the looks of it, hope the hot cocoa is stocked up. But your driveway...it's cleared. Did you do that?

    Adorable doggies in snow.Bet they love it and hate it, like we do.
    I'm so awe struck by that sculpture, my man loved it too. Thanks!!

  10. I'm lucky enough to have a plow guy who does all the plowing for us. He had lots of work this time. The dogs do love the snow but it's a little hard for them to get around in it right now. Hopefully, it will start melting soon.

  11. Wow - beautiful but yes, I am sure it makes everything difficult when it's time to get on with daily life. It's been awhile since we had a really big snow down here, but it's terrible trying to get back to normal since most of us don't have the equipment (or people who do it for hire) to manage it since it's a fairly rare event. Stay warm, hoping it melts soon so things can begin to dry out.

    1. Thanks Billie,

      We're used to snow around here but it's still a pain. The temps should be in the 40's this week so some of it will melt.

  12. Now that's what I call SNOW!! Yet still I wheedle on about the pathetic offerings we get here *lol* Your dogs are so adorable, especially love the one of Murphy, his expression speaks volumes.
    That snow sculpture is ... amazing! I can't even draw a horse, never mind sculpt one from snow ... best not mention my snowman-attempts ...

    1. Hi Joy,

      Murphy is not enjoying this snowfall at all. He's very expressive about his feelings too!

  13. That sculpture is beautiful. Truly amazing.

    Love the pups's expressions. You'd think the furrier ones would like the snow better, but Jackson seems to be reveling in it. Love his enthusiasm.

    1. Hi Jean,

      They used to like it when they were younger. Murphy is ten and has bad hips and Maggie is nine and she's got some leg issues now too. Jackson is always up for an adventure though.

      Hope you're doing okay after yesterday.

    1. Hi Merri,

      If I could I'd send it to you!

  15. And just when we thought it was melting! At least last night's dusting makes everything look clean again. Hope those doggies are staying inside, cozy and warm by the fire. I feel the same as Murphy about all this white stuff.

    1. Hi Victoria,

      Yes,it was melting yesterday but the dusting last night freshened it up some. Ugh! I think it will melt, in the driveway at least, today with the warmer temps.
