Snow balls!

We got some snow last night. I took the dogs out for a walk and the wet snow caused the worst snow balls I've ever seen! The only way Gemma could walk was a fast "rabbit hop". I had to carry Gemma home in the end because she was too tired and couldn't walk with all the snow balls! Here is some video and photos of the dogs!

Poor Gemma. That sure doesn't look very comfortable, but she figured it out - the running, that is. Glad I haven't been through that this year, but I remember it well. Have fun guys!

The videos are "unavailable." Sniff.

Sheri, I can see the videos. That is the kind of snowballs my guys get when it snows here because the snow is usually wet when it happens - with temps hovering around 30 degrees. It just bogs them down finally, to the point where they plop down and can't move. Only way I have found to get them off is to put them in their tub and melt them off with lukewarm water. So glad we only get that around once a year - would hate to have to deal with that on a daily basis. But they do have fun in it for awhile.

Cute videos.

That is so funny! Looks like that kind of snow is good "packing"

Gemma has turned into a snowman for sure..all she needs is a carrot for her nose!

not sure why you can't see them. The dogs have been out in the snow all day. They come in when they are snowballed so bad they can't walk, they rest by the fire until it's melted, then they beg to go back outside again. They can't get enough of it! My big girl likes to roll and even has snowballs on her face and ears! It's that heavy wet snow that's perfect for snowmen.

Oh my, those are so wonderful. Gemma looks EXACTLY like Coach so it's even more fun for us to watch the hopping through the snow. I love your big girl too, so lovely...
