A Little Humor, Dog Agility Style...

Hi all,

It's boring staying in the house all day with only snow to play in outside. It's cold out there! We found a funny video to keep us entertained ..

First the Bernese Mountain Dog shows what it's like to run a BIG dog (ouch!) and then the white Bull Terrier tries to convince her mom she Just-Can't-Do-It today! I recognize her from other trials around here. She's a riot!

This was taken where we trial up in MD a lot. I love to run there.

It's the Big One!

You've all heard of the blizzard that's hitting the VA-DC-MD area? We are right in the target zone, and I think it's the biggest snow storm that I can remember!

Hoo boy have we ever been "SnowPocalypse"'d up one side and down the other! It all started yesterday morning and just now looks like it might be winding down. Mom won't let us in the back yard at all. She says she can't find it! Huh??

You can see it from the upstairs bathroom:

And here's the other part of it:

But you can't see it from the back door:

Those trees in the yard aren't supposed to be touching the ground -- that's at least 2 feet of snow, maybe more. There are garden stakes 2 and 4 feet tall and the tall ones are almost gone in the second picture.

Mom let me go out on the deck and stand in a spot they cleared out to show you what 24 inches is to little ol' me...

The table on the deck in the previous pic measured 23 inches, but Mom just went out with the stick again and now it's officially 26 inches! Who knows what it's like in the yard....

Hey someone get me out of here! (the new measurement is 25 inches on the deck)

We are quite snowbound... the Jeep can get out but not everyone can!

Last night I stood on a snowbank and directed the snow shoveling: (9 inches on the ground then)

And checked around the corner for rabbits, there were none..

Mom's truck was covered,and overnight collected about 14-15 more inches around it ..

We had to be taken out front to do our business all day, and at one point Ollie made a break for it! Don't know where he was going but he said something about running to somewhere warmer...

He didn't get far! Maybe tomorrow Mom will let us find us just how DEEP our back yard really is --

Stay warm guys!

Snow Day Fun Video

Hi all you snowy doggies!

Since we in northern VA are going to get up to 20 to 28 inches of snow this weekend, we found a great video to watch to keep us occupied. After watching this, Mom is getting ideas! Oh noooo...

She WISHES she were as good as this trainer!

Punxsutawney Phil Take That!

Today is Groundhog Day, and that little fuzz-ball just said we're having 6 more weeks of winter! Oh Nooooo.... our area has had more snow so far than the previous 3 winters, and 15 inches over our average! What is that little guy smoking???? This week we're having not one, but two snowstorms and it might keep us from going to agility. OK little buddy, I have an answer for you --

Someone in our town put this video up on You Tube and this is what we have to say to "Phil".... (don't watch if you like groundhogs)

We want spring!

(and why did they name the groundhog??)
