Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Well, it’s here!

The first snow of the season has arrived and it showed up in full force. Our neighborhood is a winter wonderland of white….and fallen down trees. For those not familiar with fall in Colorado, we have a gorgeous fall with red, yellow and orange trees full of leaves but we always, always, always get a huge snowfall before the leaves have dropped. The result – tree limbs snapping under the weight of our white, powdery, Colorado precipitation.

This morning, as I dragged broken aspen and twisted willow branches around my backyard into a pile, I let the dogs out to explore the new chilly terrain. I couldn’t resist sharing some photos with you because these two pups had me cracking up. Simcoe, the English Mastiff, (about 10 months old) LOVED the snow. Barley, the Pug, (almost 6 years) was not as impressed.

Not sure at first if this is okay.

Could he BE any cuter?
Crazy Snow Dog.
Hiding out under the deck (and our now-frozen tomato plants) where it’s dry. Silly pug.

Just a side note – I may or may not be listening to Christmas music while I type this. The holidays are just around the corner! Bah!

Hope wherever you are, you’re staying warm! Happy Snow Day from Colorado!

  1. Lucy is loving the snow!! She’s sad because she has to stay inside now – dog door shut since the snow knocked down her fence in two places and it’s still unsafe from falling limbs. When I take her out though it takes LOTS of cookies to coax her back in. We should get them together again soon!
