Helen Lambert

your little dogs are just to die for...we are stuck..I tried to get to work this morning...it took an hour and a half to get five miles and it was a very scary jouney...so snoozing and now knitting...

Oh my goodness, that first photo of dear Douglas has me in stitches! my old dog used to do that in the snow too, she used to snaffle her nose in it and try eat it, too funny for words.
Snowy here too still, although just beginning to drip-drip.

Is there anything more adorable than a dog playing in the snow like that? :)

A childhood friend of mine had a dog that would plant his nose in the snow and then run around the yard like a snowplow. He was quite a source of entertainment!

Oh your dogs are so sweet! what breed are they?

That last pic gave a giggle, perhaps Douglas was making snow dog angels?

No snow here sadly, just rain. Pah!

I have a long-haired miniature Dachshund! (Harley) She loves poking her nose in the snow.

Martha

Too incredibly cute!!! Your dogs are adorable. Long haired daschunds?

Paula

Oh, those faces!! Ellie and Douglas sure look like that had a great time, and I am so happy we got to see them enjoying the snow. What marvelous friends.

It's cold and snowy here in Michigan and will be until late March. I don't mind the cold or the snow, but the endless gray skies make me want to hibernate!
