playing in the snow

the sun was shining as we pulled up. as I opened the car door she ran out. excited can't even describe her reaction. it had been nearly a year since she'd been here to play.

this time her cousins were here to play annoy her. but she's a good sport she doesn't mind a little cousin time as long as she gets to play in the snow.

she seemed a little sad when she was left to puppysit while the people enjoyed our own snow play. but she understands that sliding down a snow covered hill can be fun. even if she doesn't understand the need for boards.

it had been years since we had all skied together. it was a fantastic day. beautiful blue skies. spring skiing. family. and laughter. capped off by dinner with the nieces. but sadly, just the human ones.

although the puppies got back at us for leaving them for too long. they decided my ski sock torn to shreds would show us. but even a little sock casualty couldn't make a dent in the fantastic day of skiing with brothers and sisters, both real and in-law.

now, they've all gone home. and it's just TheDog and I for tomorrow. a nice break from reality. hopefullly, she'll enjoy the rest from the puppies while I make a few turns.

Beautiful.

Enjoy those turns... I made my last on Friday and I miss it already.

But good news - next year the kids get to start! Woohoo!

Sigh.

It's posts like this that really make me miss my dog. Perhaps it's time to find a new one....

Thanks for taking Ramblin' Dog up to the snow. What a great picture. Any pictures of the puppies?
I might go up skiing next weekend for the first time in years.

Sounds like so much fun, I wonder if my dog would enjoy the snow? Probably not, he’s a big pussy and doesn’t even like getting his paws wet Lol! Elizabeth go get a new dog, check out www.petfinder.com.

She's such a beauty. What a marvelous photo. Can you even imagine life without dogs? I can't.

My Lab loves the snow. She bounds around like a rabbit in it.

I had Bella up in the local backcountry a little while ago. I accidentally skied over her paw (or perhaps she brushed my ski - hard to say). A little bit of blood but it was impossible to keep her from galloping all over the place. When we got home I think she slept for 5 hours straight.

Dogs are the best...
