Cubbie's Surprise Snow!

Cubbie asked to go outside late tonight, so I opened the door. Cubbie looked kind of funny, and then he ran out. It was snowing for the second time this winter. Cubbie had a ball! He ran like a madman all over the yard for 5-10 minutes, having the time of his life! He enjoyed it last time (a couple weeks ago), but that was icier and it didn't cover as much. This seems lighter and fluffier, and it is deeper, and he liked it much better.

The cats are always looking outside (plus they like to bat at Cubbie's tail when he goes out), so I set them on the top step, one at a time. They each stood there for a few seconds, then ran back inside!

Yay! Snow!!!

Barbara

James just had a surprise too. When I told him it was snowing he figured there were a few flakes. He just let Cubbie out again, and he was surprised to see there is already about 6 inches and is still snowing. Not a big deal for you northerners, I know, but we hardly ever get any snow. We have already had twice as much this winter than last winter. I hope it snows all night!

I just took some! He was in the neighbors' yard in one of them (They put food out for all the animals, including dogs and cats). The one without Cubbie in it is the tracks he made running through the yard.

That's cool Barb,
When my old friend was still with me, he would stick his snout down into the snow and run like crazy. He looked like a hairy snowplow!!

If you look closely in the last picture, Cubbie had been eating dog or cat food next door and had snow around his mouth!

I tried to be nice and let my one semi-ferrel cat in last night because of the snow. My reward was he peed on me at 5 in the morning. He's out and never getting back in this house. Don't worry, he's got a shed he can go to but I thought I'd be nice to him. It wasn't worth it.

I couldn't believe we actually got snow last night up here, looks like you got more than we did.

Oh I miss the snow... I got Aspen when I was in Co so she got to play in the snow as a puppy. She loved it. I would throw handfuls of snow at her and she would jump up and try to get it. I would love for her to get to play in it one more time.

I just love watching dogs play in the snow. I have 4 chihuahua's and if the snow touches their bellies, they hop like bunnies, it's hilarious!
