Snow Aftermath!!!


I kept looking out of the living room window,
thinking I could make some really great trails in that snow!


So, Jim took me outside.
After he quickly took some shots of the driveway 
and


he followed me down to the backyard


through the tall spruces, pines and snow covered boulders.


Jim is quick to capture my antics


especially when I found a stick to chew and toss.


Both of us were satisfied as we worked our way around the grove
heading back into the house.
We didn't even notice the cold temperatures.


I really didn't think it was time to retire inside


because we had just come outside


so I sped around making new trails


and discovered Ron staring at me from the back door.


With the skeletal remains of our Japanese maple looking quite striking,
I stood behind it and wouldn't budge.


So with Jim's coaxing as he trudged through the snow,
I came in the house
then I realized....


Hey I'm so glad I came inside.
I have snow clumps all over my paws.
This winter has been a major "snow clump" season
because I haven't had my haircut yet.
Next year I will schedule my haircut at a better time
considering the amount of snow we are having this season.

One should be always prepared ~~~ right!

    Enjoy that gorgeous snow, Girl! Days like this are awesome.
    Perhaps Daddy Ron shouldn't drive today!

      I thought you might like the skeleton version of my Japanese 'Waterfall' Maple....can't wait for it to pop open again in the late spring!

    1. Your Rosenmontag sounds like New Orleans' Mardi Gras ~~~~ party time ~~~~~~ you know how to have a good time in February! We would love to experience that some time ~~~~ high 5!

      Thanks for the bath "zum abtauen" suggestion ~~~~ Sophie loves baths and it would be so much quicker.

    1. I'm a middle-aged Doodle now and finally started understanding most commands and body language ~~~~ I just needed some snow to dive into so I could feel clean and fresh ~~~~ a huge plus for SNOW!!

  9. Love these photos! They are so playful, and they depict winter in such a beautiful way. The area around our home looks the same, and I was out yesterday morning helping hubby shovel us out of the snow. Well, I wasn't really helping, to be honest, since I spent most of the time taking photos and enjoying the crisp, cool air on what turned out to be an amazingly gorgeous after-the-storm day. But still, I did manage to push the shovel around in between all that :)

    1. Shoveling is an unnecessary pass time for sure ~~~ over the passed 3 years we've pulled way back with the shoveling because of fear of doing too much. So Ron does it in fits and starts ~~~~ a little bit today and a little bit tomorrow!
      Sophie is so joyful in really any type of weather ~~~~ but SNOW seems to make her ZOOM so much faster ~~~ she should try out for the Doodle Amazing Race!!

  10. You have a great looking yard! We like all those trees! Unfortunately those snowballs are the penalty we must pay for being wonderful Doodles!

  11. The snow is gorgeous...but we've been watching it on the News....does cause problems.

    We were laughin' at daddy Ron staying INSIDE while he captured you and daddy Jim in the snow!

    Again, wonderful pictures. Nearly cools us down. Our temps have gone up again...hovering around the 37 C mark.

    1. 37 Celsius ~~~ PHEW ~~~~ I can feel that heat as I read your post! That's almost unhuman or in my case UNDOoDlE-like!!! Seriously, give me the SNOW any day....!

      I hope you have A/C and that you are safe and cool!

      Daddy Ron wanted to be out there but the poor whimp has a cold ~~~ so I conned Jim! It worked!

    1. I am really not that used to this much SNOW because the last 3 years were almost snowless, at least minimal ~~~~ and I'm only 6, so by deduction then ~~~~ my first 3 years might have been super snowy but I don't remember ~~~ convenient, eh!!?

  14. Hi Y'all!

    What a winter wonderland! It is so beautiful!

  16. It looks like you got quite a bit of snow! The more to doodle in, I imagine.
    Very pretty! Must have been windy as well.
    Makes me cold, just looking at it.

    1. Me too, Sharon....shivers.....the wind was unrelenting and I think that's why the drifts aren't as bad as expected ~~~ happy about that, but I thought the power might go out for a longer period! Another February Snow Storm ~~~ really nothing new for us but we have been pampered the last few years.

  18. Sophie, what beautiful snow in the back yard! You made some pawesome trails through it! Hmm, I don't know much about snow but that clumping in your paw doesn't look like it feels all that good. You better remember to get your haircut earlier next year...at least on those paws!

  19. Oh my goodness Sophie- those snow pictures are so beautiful. Such tranquil pictures-- I can imagine that you had a wonderful time blazing new trails in all of that fresh snow! This is perfect weather for you!! You look awfully pretty out there in the snow!!

    1. I am so HAPPY that it SNOWED ~~~~ Yes new trails were on my agenda ~~~ Jim took me out because Ron has the cold you have so wasn't "with it" ~~~ I came back in after my explorations and snuggled ~~~ I have responsibilities right!!!!

  20. I'll bet racing through that snow was fun, fun, fun (and a lot of exercise). Snow clumps between the toes isn't fun, though. I think a mani-pedi is in order!
