Snow Day

Alfie sitting in front of a patch of snow in our backyard; green grass shows through the snow in the foreground

What's that white stuff?!  The rest of the country may be getting a lot of it, but in Austin, snow is still relatively unheard-of.  I remember we had a teeny bit of sleet last year (our puppy Dakota nearly made himself sick trying to eat it all!), but the last time we had enough snow to make a snowball was somewhere around six years ago.

Alfie loves it!  It's invigorating, edible, and best of all the snow got us all outdoors to play with him.  Hooray!

Alfie racing around in the swirling snowflakes, a light dusting of snow is on the ground
...faster than a speeding snowball...

Alfie has picked up a chunk of snow & ice mixed with leaves & is holding it in his mouth; it's almost as big as his head
Let's play fetch with this...um...chunk of snow and ice!

closeup of Alfie's nose and snowy face; a big snowflake is falling on his eye, making him blink
That snowflake's gonna land right in my eye!

Haha... glad he's enjoying the snow. If you ever want some more, I'd be happy to send our ours. My dogs love it, but I'm SOOO ready for Spring.
