Halloween Fun

Trick or treat was allowed in our city but not all over the state. It was strongly encouraged that we find non-contact ways to distribute the candy. Chutes seemed to catch on across the area. There were several in our neighborhood.

Normally we stay inside the house and bark at the little ones from the door but due to COVID the candy distribution was happening outside and Mom knew we needed to be part of the security so she bundled up and came out with us for a while and then decided we had to go back inside to warm up while she and Dog Dad finished up with the last of the little ones.

For once we actually got to observe what goes on during this candy collecting night. We've walked around with little ones collecting candy but we've never just sat outside and watched it from our own yard. Mom is thinking this might be worth continuing next year.

Our neighborhood has long been a popular spot for Halloween candy seekers so while our numbers were down with COVID we still had more than most of Mom's friends and family got, especially considering by the time Mom and Dad closed down the temps were in the low 30's.

What else should one do but snuggle with a holiday bone when one's responsibilites are done for the evening.

Halloween Surprise

We knew Halloween was going to be different this year with the COVID restrictions. Mom tells us despite the restricitions the City has decided to allow trick or treating with some new rules. So this first picture kind of demonstrates the fall feeling Mom was gong for as she's been keeping us from eating her colorful fall pumpkins.

However we woke this morning to this...

With low temps predicted it has Mom concerned with how many kids will be out. We hope to have some cool Halloween pics to post but we will see what the weather brings.

We must say since we don't get candy on Halloween we did prefer the snow cookies.

Just a note we have allowed comments again. While we were away we were getting some disgusting spam filling up Mom's email notifications of comments to be modified daily and she shut off comments hoping the disgusting warts would leave us alone.

Thankful Thursday: Snow Dogs

If you haven't been following our Blog you might have missed that we love snow. Those of you who visit frequently often see our true enjoyment of the white stuff. Mom caught pictures of us enjoying Monday's storm.

A Delayed April Fool's Joke

Saturday I was sitting here on the last snow desperately trying to hold on to the last of our precious snow cookies. Mom thought it was cute and had to shoot pictures of my attempts to hold on to the last bit of cooling tasty snow. We had a beautiful warm day on Easter and Mom had visions of tulips, irises, and lilies coming up and blooming. Well little did she know Annie and I had other plans. Monday morning beautiful tasty snow began to fall and we have a yard of snow cookies again. Dog Dad says Spring snow doesn't last long, but he didn't expect we'd get more snow today, so we have hopes for long term Spring snow cookies.

The Melt Before the Storm

We are due for a big storm today. As of Monday the weatherman says we could get another foot of snow cookies. Mom decided it would be interesting to get some pre-storm pictures to see how much melting has occurred since the last storm. We had 16 inches of snow last week, but it's March and despite Mother Natures best efforts Spring is coming. Spring snow keeps falling, but it doesn't have the staying power of winter snow.

We lost power in the last storm so we hope all of you stay safe and dry in this storm. That being said we are enjoying the last snow cookies of the season.

The Snow Begins

Mom has become a little bit obsessed with getting snow pictures, so as long as we continue to have snow storms you can expect lots of pictures. This storm happened last Wednesday and Mom was having fun capturing our joy at the new snow.

You might have heard we had a bit of a snow storm a week ago Thursday. A foot of snow cookies was dumped into our back yard. We would have been delighted but then the temperatures dropped into single digits so it became too cold to enjoy our regular snow activities. It also kept Mom inside and refusing to go outside for pictures until it got above single digits. However, she did eventually get outside and take some pictures.

We do enjoy the snow track that Dog Dad makes for us. When the weather is bad it is nice not to have to make our own. However we do like exploring the rest of the yard as the weather allows it.

Have you ever noticed door service is slower on cold day?

Warm and comfy inside. Hey what are you doing in my bed? More on that on Monday.

Our First Snow Track of the Year

Our first Christmas wish was granted. Snow cookies were delivered last night. Mom and Dad weren't as happy as their Saturday plans were disrupted. We however enjoyed the first delicious snow cookies of the season.

Sunday Dog Dad got out the noisy snow blower and created a nice wide snow track for us. Of course that doesn't stop us from going off into the deeper snow, but it gives us a starting point if we are feeling less than enthusiastic about going out into the cold.

Monday Mischief: The storm before the Blizzard of 2015

As we mentioned in a previous post Mom got behind with her Blogging. The weekend before the big blizzard we had another storm with wet heavier snow, just not so much of it. There was enough that our Jr. Sheep's Mom's weekend class was canceled, so we didn't get to play with our Jr. Sheep as promised. We were quite disappointed.

However, we did try to make the best of it by playing in the snow. Mom captured some pictures, but never got to post them. She decided they'd make a good Mischief Monday post.

We know not every dog loves snow, but we love playing in it, eating it, and yes, napping in it.

Welcome to Monday Mischief – The pet blog hop that wraps up the weekend! This Blog Hop is brought to you by Alfie’s Blog, Snoopy’s Dog Blog, and My Brown Newfies.

It Snowed!

You know we love our snow cookies. We even get ice cubes in the summer we love the icy stuff so much. However, we were just starting to enjoy the joys of spring. The white stuff on the ground was unexpected. We had not placed an order. Our annual charity walks are just around the corner. We don't want Mom and Dad backing out because of weird weather. We'll admit we were perhaps a bit aggressive in our snow cookie prayers. However, we'd really like this white stuff to stop before it interferes with our Spring plans.

The First Snow Cookies of the Year

It snowed yesterday and we were treated to the first fresh snow cookies of the year. The best thing about snow cookies is Mom doesn't care how many we eat. We can run around the yard and scoop up as much as we want and she doesn't seem to worry about it ruining our dinner. That's what she says when we want to many of our other snacks.

We are still having wet weather, but it is more sleet than snow at this point.

This is our friend Mrs. Pumpkin. She has been on our porch for a while now. She had a brief trip indoors during the hurricane, but moved outside afterwards as we missed having her out there. Mom and Dad seem to think she will be traveling some time before Thanksgiving. We will miss her as we have spent hours sunning ourselves next to her.

Got Snow?

We were very surprised to find we were getting snow cookies specially delivered from the skies this morning.

What we could not understand is why Mama made us wait at the door after we had our fill.

After Mom dried us off, she was trying to get the screen slider shut. Katy thought she might need a few more cookies and darted out the door.

After all snow cookies have been a rare occurrence this year.
