Wordless Wednesday: Keeping Out the Cold

Catching up on my Reading

Bailey's never been one for reading, but since I discovered Mom's bed, I've always loved exploring her books. There is something about sticking my nose in a book and exploring it. Of course, there was that incident with teeth involved, so Mom insists I have to be supervised around books now, but oh I do love them. Today we were exploring a mystery where, well I won't spoil it for you. I love to nose my way to the end find out who done it and then work my way through the clues. Mom does find it a bit annoying when I lose her place.

Today, sensing I was missing my daily dose of all the wonderful winter games we've been watching she actually read some of the story to me until I fell asleep. Now I am certain I know who did it. Except she won't let me tell her. She hates it when I guess first and ruin the book for her.

Mom and Dad Have Been Under the Weather

Have you ever noticed the odd expressions humans have. Dad says he and Mom have been under the weather and that's why they just don't have the energy for playing and walks like they normally do. Dad have you felt the snow falling on your head? You are under the weather every day.

They seem to be doing better, which has us feeling happier. You have no idea how much work it is to be a bed warmer for sick dog parents. They want you to stay with them and keep them warm. Then they complain you are taking up too much of the bed. They aren't rational when they are sick.

We have been enjoying the games though. Katy has taken to curling, Bailey not so much this time around. Perhaps he's outgrown it. Bailey's been more into hockey and the extreme sports this time around. We both enjoyed watching the skating. Mom and Dad watched all the team and individual competitions so we got caught up with all the skating.

Our snow cookie totals are really adding up. We think perhaps we may have over done our cookie prayers. We had two storms in two days that had significant cookie fall. Today it's raining so the cookies are getting washed away a bit. Tonight when it gets cold they'll likely freeze. Frozen cookies are an interesting taste. Unlike Mom and Dad the snow seems to have energized us. We have had some wild games of snow tag. Even when it isn't snowing we come in looking like snow dogs.

We are looking forward to watching the last of the events this weekend and then the closing ceremonies.

We Had a Delightful Snow Day with Dad

The Snow hit us on Wednesday and we got a whole day home with Dad. He dug out our backyard snow run and then we had some time for fun in the snow.

We played some wild games of ball. Mom doesn't have great aim and we had to dive into the snow banks after one of the balls she tossed.

We are enjoying our new batch of snow cookies. We even dined on some we brough in with us after our ball game. Now we are gearing up for the Olympics. Bailey's favorite event, curling. He will even fight for the remote to keep the channel from changing. Katy is pretty interested in all the events. What events are you looking forward to seeing?

Do you guys play tag? It is one of our wild and crazy indoor games. You've seen this couch. It is normally covered in nice soft fuzzy fleece. Well when we play our crazy game of tag this becomes our safe zone. Katy decided you are fair game anywhere on the floor. However, when you jump up on the couch, you are safe. Upstairs the safe zone is Mom and Dad's bed.

One of us usually starts the game and the zoomies begin. Katy is usually the one that declares a time out by jumping up on the couch. As you can see here, sometimes she is joined by Bailey. Then one will bump the other and the zoomies begin again until exhaustion sets in or Mom and Dad step in and declare the games done.

Cloudy with a chance of Snow Cookies

We take you to our weather reporter in the field to discuss the coming storm.

Snow cookies were light, but tasty yesterday. Without additional supplies, they'd be gone within days. However, our weather computers tell us that heavy snow cookies will be arriving over night and staying though the early morning. Those early morning bathroom runs could be a bit challenging amidst the huge piles of abundant snow. We expect to have our snow run up and running tomorrow morning if our weather tracking system is working and the snow does arrive. With the cold air coming in after this storm, we could be having snow cookies for some time to come.

Super Bowl Sunday Party

As you may now we are big football fans and even though our team wasn't in the game, we couldn't miss the big game. Dad and Mom mad preparations for the game that included getting us new bully sticks and replacing a Valentine's heart we killed during one of our own footbal exhibitions on Saturday.

One of Dad's favorite friends always brings dog cookies for the start of the game and half time. In honor of the special game we also got a cookie at the end of the game. Mom and Dad were cooking up some special treats and man it was hard not to beg. The bully sticks helped to deal with temptation.

We had a rousing game of ball outside before the game and that kept us calm through the first quarter. However, we were looking for more action by the second quarter, especially knowing those half time cookies were coming soon.

We hope all the Seattle fans are enjoying their championship today. We are relaxing and preparing for the Olympics overload. Mom says we also are preparing for a big snow cookie dump tonight. We are in the 5 to 10 inch range as of this morning. While we love our snow cookies, that makes getting out for our bathroom runs a bit challenging. Dad will have to dig out our snow path again.
