Look what Fell from the Sky!


It's true! It's true! The weatherman actually told the truth for once! For the past two months, the weatherman kept on saying that it was going to snow the next weekend, and every time the next weekend came, it rained instead. And now... Finally... The weatherman said it was going to snow the next weekend, and it did! And then it snowed more on Tuesday! And it's supposed to snow tons more this weekend!

Oooh man, you guys have no idea how excited I am about this snow. I even got the zoomies, as you can see in this video that my human made HERE.

I walked my humans up the hill to the pond today, and it was -5 degrees Celsius even with the sun shining. The pond is completely frozen!

I wore my blue jacket. It's the same color as the snow in the shade!

The snow is so soft and dry since the temperature has not reached above 0 degrees for a week now. And that's good, 'cause the snow is too dry to clump up around my legs. I look like a snowman when snowballs get clumped up all over me.

The only snowballs on me this week are on my face!


I'm finally done making cards, though I didn't get near as many done as I had hoped. My human got really busy these last couple weeks so she couldn't help me make more cards... And she also couldn't help me blog, which explains why I have been absent for a while now. But anyway, we sent out as many cards as we had time to do, so I hope those of you who get them will enjoy them!

I have some big news that I am also excited about... My grrrrEAT freind Abby has nominated my post, "The Cards are Costing", for DWB Post of the Month! OMDogness, thank you Abby!
Please, everyone, go vote HERE for your favorite post. There's some great posts this month, so look at them all and choose your favorite!

And more big news... My GRRRReat friends from the Brat Pack have nominated me for DWB Photo of the Month! Wow, two nominations in one month?! Thank you so much Brat Pack! I feel so honored, thank you everyone... Again, there are some wonderful photos this month, so please go HERE to vote for your favorite!

Congratulations on your nominations! We love both the post and the picture! We've already gone and voted, too!

Wroo that you have snow! It makes us smile to see how happy it makes you, and how much fun you (and Lizzy!) had in that video! I want a rope tree, too!

We've missed you, but we totally understand about being busy. And tell Lizzy not to worry about the cards! It's the thought that counts, and we know that you're thinking about all of us!

Brown dog kisses,
Dannan

Pee Ess I wish we could do zoomies in the snow together! The Girl says there's no way in H-E-double hockey sticks that she's driving me down to do zoomies in the snow, though!

Southbay Girl said...

Sparky, I played in snow today-but sunk in it...does that happen to you? It was so deep!! I don't think i"m a big fan of snow..it's kinda cold on my feet, and I didn't like sinking...

But you look like you were having a wonderful time doing zoomies!!!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Wow, Sparky, You have had a great month! Two nominations -- congratulations -- and SNOW! Why you are so thrilled to see snow at minus degrees is beyond us, but if it thrills you, you can have any that might head our way too. Whew. It's sure good to have friends to give gifts too. Remember, you can have ALL our snow!

You are definitely an all season dog! You look great in your blue jacket and love the snow beard. :)

Although you were up against some tough competition on the DWB front, you won our votes (in both places).

Hope you received our DWB Christmas card!! :)
