Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It... Ice?

Well, almost every day now we get rain mixed with snow. And the rain melts the snow. So, of course, the snow doesn't stick to the ground. And with no snow on the ground, life can be dull... But, when it's sunny outside, it gets colder! But of course it can't snow when there are no clouds, but I discovered something almost as much fun as snow.

Pavement?! Guess again. I know it looks like I'm walking on the road, but...

Do you see all those lily pads behind me? I don't think lily pads grow on pavement very well.

Yup, the pond up the hill has frozen over!

Here I am barking at Lizzy to put the stupid camera away and throw the ball.

She didn't put the stupid camera away, but she did throw the ball.

I'm getting in lots of good practice for Butchy and Snickers ice skating party!

When it was time to go back home, I decided to take a rest on the island in the middle of the pond. There's no way I'm going back home yet. The ice isn't thick enough for the humans to walk on yet, so they can't go out to the island and get me. He he.

It's just 10 more days until Christmas! Oh dear, I still have 3 more cards to make. I'd better tell Lizzy to get on them while I go play with my ball.

Have a good weekend everydog!

Hey Sparky, That looks like loads of fun. I would totally chase that ball with you, but I'd probably crack the ice. My mom won't let me run on ice anyway. Too hard on my kneesies and she's scared I'll tear another cruciate ligament. Sigh. No fun. But we have loads of snow!!!!


p.s. You have the cutest little face.

parlance said...

Oh, my goodness, Sparky! That looks so scary to an Aussie who isn't used to snow. Wasn't Lizzie terrified you would fall through??? I guess you Northerners are used to coping with the cold and the weird way the water suddenly goes hard :-)

PS Thanks for dropping by to visit Penny!

I have never tried walking on a pond before. Coooool!


Lorenza said...

Hi, Sparky
Looks like the brakes didn't work!
Glad you were having fun there!
I guess I prefer my sunny and hot days here!
Have a good night

Arabella said...

I'm glad you had fun playing on the ice - you get all the best weather. Mom says back home there are ponds with ice on them but they usually have snow on top.

I'm so glad you posted a video of you ice skating - now I think I know what I need to do at the ice skating party!!


Simba said...

Be careful on the ice, if it breaks you will freeze in the cold water.

That looks like so much fun. It has been rainy here in Texas but we won't get any snow. it is very rare that we do. Usually once during the winter we do have an ice storm but never any of that fluffy stuff..

Cashew said...

Sparky you are so cute!

Looks like alot of fun!

Toby said...

Sparky! Be careful of that pond. We have a tiny pond here that kinda froze over. But then mom tapped it with her foot and it all cracked!!

Are you hoping for snow this x-mas too?



Wow Sparky you are really ice skating!! We had a little chuckle watching you chase the ball on the pond and slide right past it. We have never had a chance to experience such fun. Your photos are gorgeous as usual.

Amber-Mae said...

Wow! The pond froze??? I can't believe it! Luckily it didn't crack under you but do becareful. You don't know what could happen & it could happen in a split second. The ice might not be able to take your weight or the heavy ball bouncing on it. I wonder I the fishes froze under the pond too? Oooo, then we have fresh sushi to eat, heehee...

Love licks,

Butchy & Snickers said...

Oh Sparky,
Be very careful on the pond, that ice doesn't look very thick yet. You were sliding pretty good there. Maybe you can help some of the other pups at the pawty, hehehehehe! See you on the pond here!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Hi Sparky,
Wow.. you had a fun day, haven't you?!! Oh and please be careful!!

serendipity said...

Looks like you had a great time Sparky. But be careful about the pond, ok? Wouldn't do for you to have a freezing dip in it.


That looks like fun! I think we should get Momma to take us to a pond too.

Girl Girl Hamster said...

PerfectTosca said...

Wow a frozen pond! I want one of those! I could sliiiiiiiiide and make the woman crazy! We got TONS of snow here. I personally just love it but it makes the woman swear a lot, especially after the plow goes by.

Ohmygoodness! I watched Lizzie's video of everydoggy in Santa Hats. How kewl is that, huh? It was great. Especially liked the Yorkie reaching for mistletoe. Lizzie is very talented. And lucky to have YOUUUU in her life.

Love and Merry Christmas!
