Snow Dogs

We had over a foot of snow on Thursday.  This was viewed quite a bit differently by each dog. 

First there was Remi.  He was not overly affected by the snow... but then again, even a foot of snow only came up to his ankles.  Do dogs have ankles?  Nevermind.  Suffice it to say that the snow did not slow him down at all.
Look at me - I'm finally the fastest dog around!

I can leap invisible snow banks in a single bound!

Then there was Noelle, the Princess.  She prefers not to get wet.  Therefore a foot of snow on the ground was not her favorite thing. 
If I just walk in Remi's footsteps, I think I'll be okay.
And finally, there is the Snow Monster.  I mean Ziggy.  Ziggy likes the snow.  In fact, he likes it so much, that he makes really strange faces as he is running around in it.  Someone warned me that if I shared this photo on my blog, it would ruin all chances of Ziggy ever being adopted.  But since it's been a year and no one has adopted him yet, I think I may as well share the photo anyway.  Because really, everyone should see this photo.  I believe it is proof that the Abominable Snow Monster does in fact exist.  And he's living in my house.
Yep, that's Ziggy.  Strange.  Silly.  Cute, in a strange way.  And mostly just strange.  You, too, can have an abominable snowdog living in your house!  

Please adopt me?

Nothing, and I mean nothing, slows down Ziggy. He is hilarious.

That's a lot of snow. And I do love Ziggy's expression, and the way him and Noelle can cameoflague.

Snow is the awesomest!! It's so TASTY and good for drive-by feastings. I sure do wish I could be as beastly in the snow as you, Ziggy!

What a gorgeous picture of Ziggy! He looks so full of joy, like at that moment, it would be impossible for him to get any happier.

I can't imagine having a foot of snow. I do love the picture of Ziggy & Remi is adorable jumping the invisible snow banks! My dogs agree with Noelle :)

I've already got one, his name is Quizz. Snow snorkling is his game. All is right in the world when the white stuff is in town. The cat. Well that's another story.
