How about some dog tales?
I got snow, you got snow, we all got snow!
Although, we only got a nice dusting that melted by 7 a.m.
Some of you are still feet deep I imagine?
Keep safe and warm, k?
I woke up at 4 a.m. thinking, something strange is up.
So, I put on my flip flops, and went outside.
Only to find myself walking in snow, whilst silent snow fell from the sky.
What bliss, that early silence of snow.
I couldn't go back to sleep, so I made breakfast.
Squeezed some oranges.
And then got all geared up to go out with the boys...
I have the best video of Miles playing in the snow at about 3 months old.
I need to dig it up (new video at the end of this post).
I took my camera, my video camera, gloves + scarf, 3 layers, boots...
And off we went.
The snow was almost all melted, with just enough to play in a little.
Mister frog bird feeder looks so dapper with snow on his head.
I made him so long ago, and he is still out there, birds crawling in his mouth every day.
Someone was particularly fond of the snow.
Seemingly madly in love really.
I think Miles smooshed his body into every patch of snow around.
He was so delighted.
Running with his mouth to the ground, filling it with gobs of snow.
His coat gets so dark when he is wet.
Gosh, he looks like such a man dog now, doesn't he?
Luckily he still acts like a big baby.
I made a snow heart for Baby.
I always do when it snows.
She loved the snow like Miles does.
We dropped it off for her...
Seems like so long ago she was here.
Love her always.
We made our rounds, checking on things.
Tiny gazebo smashed down to the ground in the storm.
Green tufts growing under chair.
Matty, just standing here and there like a statue.
Long periods of time, just looking around.
Listening in snowy silence.
Snow melting quickly.
I grilled portabella mushrooms.
Drizzled in a mixture of balsamic, olive oil, garlic powder and salt.
Grilled over flames, on med-low, 5 minutes on each side.
They were outrageously good.
I made sandwiches with them - with avocados, spinach, tomatoes.
In the evening I ran around the yard with the most beautiful sunsets painted in the skies.
That sort of sunset always takes me breath away.
It was glowing in neon.
The next day, when everyone was clean and silky, I asked for a photo op in return for a treat.
Miles was game until I started taking too many pictures.
Then he gave me one of his faces.
He is so hilarious.
He has these faces he makes.
I shared the one where he tucks both sides of his upper lip up a while back.
Then he tucks one of the sides of his lip up when annoyed or perplexed.
And sometimes, he tucks his whole upper lip up in a way where you see his teeth.
It's sooo funny!
So, there you go, an overbearing pup love post.
Snow gone, boys clean.
Could I get anymore obnoxious?
Yes yes lady, we know, you love your dogs.
I took lots of videos too.
Here's one with me being EXTRA annoying.
With my mama dog voice in full action.
What can I say?
If you are a pet lover, you understand.
Miles could not get enough of looking at this video.
He kept standing up on my chair and staring in awe.
I love furs.
See you soooon!
ps: A word about comments...
For endless months, I have been responding to comments, in the comments section.
I have a feature where I get an e-mail showing me a comment, and when I respond to it, the person who left the comment gets an e-mail showing my reply.
However, I just found out that, this feature has not in fact been working at all for a very long time.
Which means that if you have left a comment, and I have responded, you probably never got an email notifying you that I replied.
I am trying to remedy the issue.
But, I am sad you never knew I was replying.
Hopefully it will be fixed soon♥
