It snowed soooo much and soooo hard that it was difficult to take photos because the camera couldn’t find my subjects through the blizzard.
Addy is so over it before it even began. She wouldn’t come out of the barn.
This is the face of a be-sweatered and be-snooded skinny little dog who hates me for taking her out of sunny Southern California, I’m pretty sure.
I’m not sure the WooTWoo were all that much happier, because they have all the hair and they get all the snowballs. So they don’t appreciate being made to pose in the snowfall.
And then there’s Silly.
That right there is an “OMGOMGYAY!” face if ever I saw one.
In rather sharp contrast to the “I will kill you in your sleep” face that Spring is currently sporting.
Maybe it’s the sweater. Which she managed to take off, and which I promptly put back on her again right before I took this photo.
And since I was pissing off dogs, I decided I may as well piss all of them off by making them sit in the doorway of the barn so I could get this photo. In for a penny, etc.
Addy is conspicuously missing, because she was inside the barn with me and never leaving unless tucked inside my coat. Silly was off somewhere else being ALL LEGS.
Actually, he was probably across the pasture barking at horses. He’s a real ass about barking at and fence running with the horses (as well as the neighbour’s super irritating german shepherd on the other side of the pasture). I’m working on getting him to call off, and that’s coming along, but now he thinks the game is to run at the horses and bark and then get called off and recall for a cookie. I tried a long line for a while, but he can still outrun me even dragging 20 feet of leash. He definitely needs some work in the recall department, as he quite an independent streak!
And Mini Mama was off having the zoomies (and losing her coat) because for a little kinda naked dog, she LOVES the snow. She can get FaeBitch to play with her when it’s snowing outside. She had a meet and greet with a potential family but they decided she was not the doggo for them. She has another one coming up, assuming I can ever get out of my driveway again with all this snow. I wish I could just keep her, I love her very much, in spite of all the goat poop she consumes.
I even managed to get a photo of Piper that I really like a lot. I may clean it up a little more and have it printed. This is how I will always remember her best – bulldog legged and wearing a slightly judgmental / slightly confused expression on her face. She’s still chuggin’ along and of course she loves the snow, so this is her happy place, even if she doesn’t really look like it is.
Anyhoo. No stories this time, just snowy photos. But if you want to, you can all think “I hope you get diarrhea” thoughts about WebJoe, because as I type this snuggled up beside my portable heater and shivering under a blanket, he’s in Hawaii posting photos on facebook about how he’s trapped on a sunny beach somewhere. Snowy Fae thinks he deserves the diarrhea.
