Snow Fun!

Shyla loves all the snow we're getting. Yesterday, she lay on a snow embankment outside our back door, waiting for me to come out and have fun.
Her happiness has been helping me to accept the piles of snow that we have and the ongoing small accumulations each day. I know that we "need it" but I was enjoying spring before this winter surge.

But, even Shyla's funny faces make me stop and smile as I slog through the cement-like snow.
Today was the first day that I even tried to take my fat bike on the trails. I was able to ride a little and walk the parts that weren't packed well enough.

We stopped to play some games. It's amazing how happy retrieving makes a Labrador Retriever! One thing that I hate the most about R's elbow dysplasia is that he's never been allowed to play retrieving games.
Through the magic of a fast shutter, I discovered that Shyla loves to pounce on her Wubba after I throw it for her.
Another pounce!
The funny part was that pouncing made her head dive deep into the snow so her face had snow all over it as she ran back to me.
It looks as if a big warm-up is coming our way so perhaps spring will revisit our region before too long!

    Do you need snow because it is dry??

  5. I'm trying not to complain about the snow (but I don't always succeed). The ski area is closed and our snow has so much moisture content now that it's difficult to navigate. We're heading a short distance west tomorrow and takeing the bikes. Surely it's spring somewhere in CO! Love your action shots.

  6. Such joyful pictures of you sweet Shyla. I'm glad we are only getting rain right now and hopefully no more snow.

  7. Yes, we "need" the snow because we get the majority of our yearly moisture via snow. And, we were pretty far behind "normal" before these storms.

  9. I'm glad Shyla is having a great time --- I just wish R could do it too. I can understand your mixed feelings about the snow --- the moisture is great, but so is spring!

  13. You certainly do look happy in your snow, Shyla! Molly loves to pounce on her tennis ball before she brings it back to mom☺

  14. Still talking snow this time of year. Glad it finally left Cincinnati. We have magnolia trees blooming and the air is so crisp. Shyla I am glad you love those albino brain chiggers. Thanks for stopping by Mile 16 of the Mayorz Marathon.

  16. She is so funny, and what a joy for life she has. I hope all that snow doesn't melt too fast, that would be bad.

  19. Us doggies just know how to have fun with the moment instead of waiting for warmer days!
