This is last night during an evening of thunder, lightning, and heavy snow and high winds.
It snowed and blew all night.
And then Mo, the young goldendoodle arrived and everything became a three ring circus. Such fun! If my goal is happy dogs then this morning I have achieved that goal. See what you think in these action shots. Ha!
And this is Millie’s reaction to all the raucous fun – I think she’s praying!
Oh My!!!! I surely don’t want to see all that white here!! Here in NJ it’s 73 and sunny, windows are open and a beautiful breeze is blowing through the house! Kitties are sitting in windows happily soaking up the rays while I press and cut fabric for a charity project. I do have to say, if I were looking out my window and seeing all that snow I’d be reacting exactly like Millie!! Wishing you a lovely weekend and may your days turn warm and sunny soon!!
You have so much fun at your house! Those dogs are smiling!
No doubt the dogs are HAPPY! Glad that Tucker has a new playmate in Mo. And Telly is even having a blast. I’m working from home today, instead of trying to get to the office, so I love the break from reading your post.
P.S. That photo of Millie is award worthy–as is the quilt behind her. Good photos Mary!!!
I’m in Buffalo NY and it’s 67 and sunny!! Go figure for February
We had 73 on Wed. in Iowa, so beware of what may be coming your way!
Well…we broke a record here in Maynard for the 2nd day in a row…70 degrees both days……Spring Fever!!! I just love your Gyspy Wife quilt. I’m working on my second one all done in Batiks.
Diane – don’t know how you are managing a second one! Every time I see a pug, I think of you and yours!
Oh to have that much energy! What larks they are having. My little Westie’s would love to be out there with them. Millie is either praying or acting like she’s invisible :-).
What fun! Thank you for sharing your day with us!-Jean
I really like that quilt on the wall.It is a keeper.
You make me feel normal. I have five dogs and they run around our yard playing and getting muddy.
Hi Mary…just a little snow shower this morning here in Idaho..living off the grid with our own solar power and propane, with lots of firewood to burn in our new residence is a new experience. We are thinking of adopting a female two year old border collie from a veterinarian who participates with a no-kill group. Dog has four three weeks old pups so they are going to be adopted out when weaned in a few weeks. Not much quilting ongoing yet. Love to check your blog when exfinity is working.
Launa – remember the picture of the little dog bed? I ordered the pink one and it had arrived the same day and was in a box in the mailbox with your card! What a coincidence, huh?
Happy dogs are the best !
HaHaHa….More like a 4 ring circus. Aren’t they having fun??
Well…..it’s crazy, but we woke to a skiff of snow here on the Ore. coast. Before we had our breakfast, it was coming down thick and hard. Now, at 10:30 it has reversed and is beginning to melt. Good. I have to go to town soon. But, snow is unusual for us here and this is the second time this winter.
I love your scrap quilt in the background. I have way too many scraps and need to bust them.
Happy dogs. Poor Millie.
Yes, those are happy dogs indeed! One benefit, at least snow is clean, not like them getting covered in mud!
Love the photo of Millie: I’d be prating too if I was a cat and I knew that boisterous posse would be coming back inside!
Love seeing dogs playing in the snow, same as I do kids!
Hahaha! LOVE the praying cat and love seeing your gorgeous quilt in the background!
My 2 cats probably do a lot of praying, too, thanks to our 3 doggies.
Mary, thank you for your entertaining posts. I look forward to them every day!
In Columbus, OH it is 74 and supposed to be very windy and rain tonight. Feels like spring.
I love the shot of Millie hiding her eyes in front of the quilt.
Wow you rec a lot of snow. I live in sunny Buffalo NY and it’s coming this way it’s 72 here today. Enjoy the snow. I love all your post😊
This day is unreal for February, it’s 79 on my window sill and the forecast for tomorrow is rain. We live right next to a ski resort and the snow is almost gone now and after the rain and warm temps this will be the end of the ski season unless it gets really cold and they can make more snow. Some of the little spring flowers are blooming and I’m afraid what it will do to the fruit trees here in the Pennsylvania orchards. Love Millie, she is so cute. It’s great to see the dogs getting along and having such a good time.
Yes, Millie appears to be praying or is hiding because she did something wrong. 😉 I like your Gypsy Wife quilt behind Millie. I still plan to do one. Enjoy the snow…..St Paul didn’t get even a dusting as they predicted.
Don’t you wish you had all that energy??!!
Those are some very happy dogs! And Millie–she cracks me up! Yep, I think that’s definitely some heavy-duty praying going on there!
The cat’s picture is a hoot!
Here in Rapid City we were on the north edge of your storm. I think we got about 4″ of very heavy wet snow. The roads were slippery and there were some accidents. Wyoming and Nebraska really got hit with 2′ of snow and strong wind making drifting. It snowed more last night and covered the sidewalks again, but the sun came out and is melting the walks. I’ll have to get out and shovel where the sun doesn’t shine. That won’t be that bad as the sun is shining, the wind isn’t blowing and it isn’t very cold.
Now doesn’t the wonder of snow and the dogs just make your day? If God makes snow, WE PLAY! I really feel sorry for the people who never know the wonderful fun of snow. I know it can make hard work, but everything else can, too.
Mary you made my day! I love seeing all your animal pictures and can hardly wait for the next post! Pretty quilt behind a beautiful kitty.
Oh what fun to play in all that snow and I’m so happy you and the pups have it!! It is beautiful:) We do usually get your weather, but I think it’s going down to 32 with no snow–I hope. It’s 77 on my back porch where I was just reading. I love Millie’s pose in front of your gorgeous quilt!! I laughed out loud at her “praying”—for sanity? for less snow? for Spring? Enjoy your day inside.
Debbie Zimmerman is your mom Becky from Newark, OH?
The dogs love snow and are playing hard. When they come in, they will nap. Mine do and I can get things done. Just like kids. Your poor cat. She deserves a treat for putting up. Our warm/hot weather is gone. Gone east. It is cold, damp and raining.
I LOVE ❤️Millie’s reaction to the dogs and their FUN! Stay Warm and Safe!!
hello from Hudson WI, not much snow fell here today, about an 1″ if that…I am really jealous of the pups, I would love to be out there with them running thru the snow..I am one of those who loves winter and the snow, I don’t want to grow old, but I am.. thank you Mary for all your quilts, pets and sharing of your life in the country…
Mary, so much fun watching dogs in snow.
I rescued a kitten about a month ago. Her name is Buttons and naturally she is cute as a button.
In North Carolina our weather is all “jacked up”. We have lots of trees blooming….girls with tank tops and flip flops on. Crazy. Even for here, I know its going to get colder sooner or later.
Just waiting for the other shoe to drop! Blessings, Lee
Lee – so happy you gave Buttons a loving home!
Gotta love a cat that prays.
Reading your posts is a highlight of my day! Your quilts and animals are all charming! I was wondering if you’ve ever had any problems with boarding dogs. They always look so well behaved and fun-loving.
Pam – dogs that might have gotten aggressive have had to stay in the kennel and large yard but I’ve had only 4 in all these years. I take no chances!
The dogs seem to be enjoying the snow more than I did when I was shoveling!! 🙂
Miss Millie is absolutely darling! Gorgeous day here today in Dayton, Ohio. Upper 70’s. Just sat through a torrential thunderstorm with hail. Suppose to wake up to a 29 degree morning. Can go through all 4 seasons in one day in Ohio!
Golden whatever’s love nothing more than snow. We had several in Vermont over the years that loved snow so much–happy memories. The dogs at your house look SO happy. We
Hey that is winter forsureThe dogslovedbeing out frolicking! Love the wall quilt! What is that one’s name?
Cynthia – Gypsy Wife
I have a black goldendoodle… and he’s just a clown in a curly coat!! Full of antics… so enjoy your posts! I think Millie is just keeping the sun out of her eyes so she can nap 😊 Perhaps you could see her up a little eye mask for naps!! Lol
Mary, I think you are right about Millie praying. I see your beautiful Gipsy Wife quilt, such pretty colors to brighten the winter. My little Zena doesn’t care for snow, she is so little gets her belly wet every time she goes out. Have a good weekend.
Oh my goodness, what fun everyone is having. It always cheers me up to see your pictures. Thank you so much for sharing them! Julie
Keep them coming. Your pet pics make me smile and feel so happy!!!!
i laughed when i saw the picture of millie after the dogs. i think she’s trying to say ‘i don’t have a clue who all these dogs belong to.’ your weather is truly strange this year. i see snow everywhere and a couple days later, the yard is clear and you’re thinking about putting out plants. then it snows again. down here in florida our winters are lasting for a weekend and then we have spring until the next weekend – sometimes every other weekend. just strange. patti in florida
I so enjoy all the posts of the dogs! Well I love it all! Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to do this!
