    Well, Howdy Folks, we are basking here in London, Ontario in the brightest sunniest day you can imagine, and because there is a healthy blanket of snow on the ground, the brightness is almost painful. Got to love it. Bailey is CRAZY for snow, so we went out for a walk (might as well call it a roll) on this bright snowy day. I bet she rolled 10 times over the hour, and when she wasn't rolling, she was eating mouthfuls of snow like it was ice cream.

    Days like this are the best for the dog park, though with the sun beating down the field starts getting very icy, so we stick to the woods and the trails. Lately we have taken to playing hide and seek with Bailey, both my husband and I taking turns and then yelling "Find Mommy" or "Find Daddy." Funniest thing you've ever seen, especially when we hide behind trees that aren't thick enough to hide our girths. Bailey runs towards us, and then stops dead in her tracks and just stares, like, "You've Got To Be Kidding Me! I Can See You, Silly Human!"

    Here's hoping you are all getting out and soaking in the sunlight. Ah, Sunny Days! I can hear the old Lighthouse song in my head, still great 40 years later.

    That sounds wonderful! You should share some pictures if you can. We haven't had a decent snow at all this season and I have been wistfully looking back at my snow pictures from last year.

    No sun here. I just finished shoveling for the fifth time in the last 24 hours. Ella thinks its fun to climb the highest snow pile and poop on top of it. Roy thinks the snow is acid and tries to keep his feet out of it at all costs. Otis, my daughter's boy who's been staying with us, thinks it's the best thing ever. He's a joy to watch playing in it. I have to make him come back in before his feet freeze. Silly boy.

    Again.. pics please. :) My poor pups were so disappointed the one day we got snow this season and they saw it coming down and there was a very very light layer on the ground (hardly a thing) and they went running out soooo excited and they did the zoomies but then they realized there weren't big piles they could run through or enough to even feel running through and they stopped and got so sad. The LOVED it so much last year when we got a couple of inches and yes as you said it was such a joy to watch them. Oh and yes Diesel liked to poop on top of the tallest piles too. lol He does the same with piles of leaves or dirt.
