Snow Creatures

We had a little snow, just a trace, over Christmas. Many parts of the country have gotten heavy snowfalls so far this winter. We've seen pictures of a lot of you playing in the white stuff.
We haven't had enough snow to make a snowman, but I guess some places have.
The more snow you have, the more snowmen you can make.
If you only have a very little snow, you could make some little snow birds.
When we lived in Maryland we had a big snowfall and we got together with our neighbors to make this snow bunny.
That's our neighbor with his little girl and me with Pylon and Bentley.

Portuguese Water Dogs seem to like snow. At least all the ones I've known have liked it. Somewhere I have a picture of Bentley taken the first time he saw snow. He's covered with snowballs. The snow gets stuck in their curls and snowballs form. Of course, I can't find the picture just now, but I did find some other dogs who will demonstrate what I'm talking about.
This one is just starting to form snowballs.

This one has a pretty good collection starting on his legs.

This one may need some help walking to the house.

This one is ready to go inside and melt.

This one is my favorite. This guy had a great time playing in the snow. As soon as all that snow melts, I'll bet he goes out and does it again.

We hope all of you who have snow are having lots of fun with it. We hope we get some soon.

I love your pictures!! What a crack-up some of the snow-dogs are!! With all the snow we had last year we never built a single snowman--We were too busy trying to dig ourselves out. Maybe this year, but it has to snow first! :-)

Those pictures are hysterical. The ears on the one look familiar. Are mine really that big?

We love those pictures!!! Last year we had a really big snowfall and Holly had little snowballs all over her body! It was the first time I'd ever seen that happen and it took forever to melt them off of her!!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Sam said...

That is so funny! Rugby hates the snow balls that get on his legs and tummy. As soon as they get big enough to make him walk funny he begs to come inside and be melted! :-p

I bet you have LOTS of snow balls to melt at your house!

Giggle... I love the attached, self-formed snowballs. We're to have snow today, but the sky sure is BLUE.

They look so cute covered in snowballs. Since my dogs like to put their faces down and "snowplow" I'm glad they don't get covered in snow balls! g

I have never seen dogs covered in snowballs like that! Those are some riotously funny pictures. I sort of hope you get enough snow to show us Snowball Fudge, but at the same time...you won't mind avoiding the worst of it, now will you? We're getting snow today, but only about 3" in the past 12 hours. I can live with that, unless it continues for 120 hours, of course.

Good grief! We had no idea PWD's turned into snowmen under the right conditions. Doesn't all that weight pull on the furs and hurt? We're just guessing here, because snow slips right off of us like water. Which is what one would think it would do to you. Funny, huh? Never see any photos of Bo Obama looking like a snowman.

That was FUN! Loved all the snow-dogs. And your snow bunny is so original. We have no snow here (just rain), but it's not far away!

Hi Porties! Thanks for visiting us! Love the snow dogs, but Mom's sure glad she just has to dry us off with a towel!

Hi! We're here with the Saturday Pet Blog Hop! Wow, we get snow stuck in our fur a lot, but we've never gotten such great snowballs all over us! We wonder how it feels to those dogs... the snow must be pretty heavy!

Winnie said...

Found your blog on the Saturday Blog Hop and I'm looking forward to following your adventures.
Love and licks, Winnie x
