Snowy Sunday

Hi friends, so we're still playing catch up around here. Mom says this time of year there just isn't enough time to get everything done. I feel that doesn't mean my blog should get the shaft though. Mom says she's busy finishing up Christmas things. I won't get too angry as I saw several rawhide's make their way into the house, so I guess I should play nice!
Big news for all my fellow dogs in the US, your holiday cards are on their way! Mom has had them finished for over a week, but she's been waiting on the special return address labels she ordered just for me. Well, they never showed up, so Mom got mad and just made her own and the cards were then mailed off. Sorry for the delay, you all should be getting them real soon!

So, the most wonderful thing began yesterday, it started to SNOW! I'm in my full on furry coat stage, so the cold and snow do not bother me at all! When I woke up this morning, I looked out the window and I saw a world of fresh powder snow!! Since the snow is oh so lovely, I had to have several walks in it. The best one was this afternoon, I played for well over an hour!
We headed over to a nearby school with a big open lot so I could do some romping. I did a lot of roaching (yes, Stanley, snow roaching is the BEST) digging and just had lots of fun.
Mom and Dad were laughing at my beard, it was coated with snow. Dad said I looked like a lion. He he he! I kept snapping at the loose pieces of snow that dangled from my beard.
Next to the school, I spied a family making a snowman and doing some sledding, since I'm a fan of kids, I headed over to check them out. When I got there, guess what??? Their own Airedale, Lucy ran over to greet me. Imagine that another Airedale in the neighborhood, WOW!
This is Lucy. She is 12 years old, but acts so much younger than that. Mom and Dad said they couldn't believe she was 12 as she was a silly fool just like me! Isn't she a cutie. As Bogie would say, Hubba Hubba!

Lucy and I had a great time playing together. She still loves to play bitey face and chase, so I was sooo in my element!
I had so much fun playing with Lucy, her Mom and Dad, baby brother and little sister. We even helped them finish off their snowman.
I originally stole the carrot nose from the snowman, but Dad made me put it back, but once Lucy's little siblings were done with the snowman her Mom said we could have at it, you don't need to tell me twice. I went for the brussel sprout eyes immediately, while Lucy followed up with the carrot nose.
Since I'm food obsessive, I was after Lucy's carrot as soon as I finished off my brussel sprout. Lucy put up a good fight, but you can bet the minute she put the carrot down, I swooped in and took it for myself.

What a great snowy Sunday. I'm off to nap, all that playing really tired me out!

'Till next time,

It looks like you and Lucy had a great time playing in the snow - the REAL snow and not fake snow that our girl gave us. Do snowman eyes taste good?

Kirby Boy!

Sounds like one of the best days possible! Snow, a new (and cute) buddy, and veggies! That Lucy reminds my girl of her Rosie. Rosie was the best Airegirl and was spunky, even when she was almost 13 years old! We dales sure stay puppy-like.

Maybe someday we'll get to roach and romp together in the snow!

Goober love,

Amber-Mae said...

Wow, snow! You sure had a great time playing in the snow. Lucy doesn't look like she's 12 to me. She looks just as young as you are Kirby!

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Maggie & Mitch said...

You would never guess that I'm 9 when I'm in the snow, Kirby! I turn into a youngster again! We Dales just LOVE the snow! Your new friend, Lucy is sure cute! Excellent job on snagging Mr. Snowman's nose! hehehehe

Love ya lots,

PerfectTosca said...

We got tons of snow too! I mean I deliberately get lost in it and poke my nose out just to freak the woman out. How fun is that huh? I knocked her on her butt the other day out there too. I mean snow is the bomb even if the woman swears a lot out there.

Harry said...

Lucy looks like she's great fun. I am pretty puppy like when I'm out and about too.

Hopefully you'll meet her again for more playing.

Toodle pip,

What fun you were having in all that snow! You looked as happy as happy can be!!

Thank you for cute card, Kirby, with your adorable face on it.

We consider foxies kissing cousins of 'dales -- but bitey face is more our style from guy to guy, right?
