… It Snew and Snew …
I don’t know what Pup was so interested in on this tree stump but I love the picture. As you can see we got up to snow – piles of the stuff in fact because it had drifted everywhere. Unfortunately underneath the snow in the yard the ground is saturated and so I ended up with snow mud pies!
We managed a whole dog walk today without someone chasing individual snowflakes! and here are some of the pictures:
We had mini blizzards while we were out but it was nice to be out in the fresh air with my boys and Pup was well behaved. He sat and waited for a tractor to pass, and again for a car. Then he went off lead down the lane and today he remembered to turn off into the woods. On the way down the lane he got himself stuck in a snow drift on the edge of the dyke – he had to reverse out and on the way back he was across the dyke through the drifts so when we got home he needed a thorough towelling underneath as well as on top.
He settled in his crate though happily enough and I popped back to see Evelyn, who was feeling weary and sore legged. Walking back was a little unpleasant – the snow was being whipped into my face and it stung! Still while I was out I did see the driver that sorted out my ticket yesterday and got a cheery wave.
… and then early this evening it started again …
I am now settled for the evening with two sleepy boys who hopefully will only want to go out once more at bedtime because it is still snowing out there. While we sleep I am trying to make some dried sweet potato chews for the boys – so I will let you know how those turn out.
