First real snow for the pups...do they like fluffy white water...
Taking the ruminants out to the front pasture to clean up the grass, especially in the new tater patch (which then allowed Rick to rototill and make twice as big...man believes you give the grower double the dirt to plant in, man gets TWICE as much taters...shall see next year if'n his theory if fruitful ... uh, VEGful).
Now recall at the beg of September...we did get some snow, and the pups soon discovered the snow that fell of the roofs and accumulated on the ground under them...well that was like a snow cone...so here they are tasting the accumulation in the puppy playground...this round of white never stayed more than the day...but it was substantial in places where it was not melting on warm ground.
"Well girls...WELL?? What is the verdict on snow?"
Slurpies, chomp and horking...This is SO very delish!
"Well?, I say "Do pups from DOWN UNDER like the GREAT WHITE NORTH??"
What is cold and wet? Canuck dog noses...more so than most canines' snoots.
First snow nose...1st of many, many SNOW snoot NOSES to follow
So like if the snow sits well on the end of the dog nose...does that mean the noses of the ACD are well insulated from body heat...does it explain why humans jump three feet in the air when cold noses are pressed into the back of yer knees...or are humans jumping because instinctively, we know teeth nips are not that far removed behind cold, wet noses pressed against tender fleshy parts of our bods? Well, which is it then??
Lacy (a good balancer now too!) finds this white coating a bit slip sliddy (lookit the tail propped opposite for balancing)
Well I expect the pups approve of the snow...not like they gotta roust forage out from under it like the ruminants do. There is that mega benefit of just reaching down for a nice pupper drink whenever you wanna. Pups have yet to investigate snow pile rollings...rolly polllies in the snow are yet to be enjoyed! I still laugh as Makins arrived here in the month of January...and come July, she still figured that if she ran over hill and dale to where winter time winds snow drifted piles of snow...there shoulda bin a pile of snow left for a cool mouthful...shoulda bin...even in JULY. Ha ha ha...boy was she glad when September came rolling in, snows and dogs...hydration at its finest!
There...snow day posted...ah, eh...now off to work with moi...
