More Snow

Hello Friends.

It happened again.  When MOM got home from church yesterday (she takes an hour and a half break before she has to go back for what I call round two).  Anyway, she had not been home more than a 15 minutes when I called her over to the window.

Hey MOM you better come take a look at this.

It's snowing like crazy.

So we went out back and sure enough.

It was snowing.  And the snowflakes were as big as half dollars, even bigger.

One of those BIG snowflakes landed right in my eye.  MOM laughed.  haha, yea that's funny.  By the time MOM left to go back to church, about a hour and a half later, it had snowed 6 inches.  By the time she got back home, 3 and 1/2 hours later, we had almost another 5 inches.  I know that some don't like snow and others complain about it, even where we live and we are expected to have snow here.  But you know what I say?  Even if you don't like the wet, cold, fluffy stuff, take a look at what it brings.

Beautiful Spring flowers.

Kicking back pool side at my gal pal Belle's house.

Lush blue fields to romp and play in.

High mountain lakes filled with water for swimming and fishing.

Grand backpacking and hiking trips along cool refreshing streams.

So while the snow may be a pain, where would we be without it's beautiful life giving moisture?


  1. It is definitely worth it! Stay warm, Goose. (it is 70 degrees here in Oklahoma) XOXO

  2. Woof! Woof! The beauty of seasons. I did lots of Woof Woof on the beach today just for you and Bert. Be safe and stay warm. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  3. I am never complaining about snow! I love playing, running and digging in it! I say bring it on.


  4. What a positive outlook Goose. Enjoy the snow.
    Wally & Sammy

  5. Snow, snow, snow. I am going to have to try that one day. We are getting rain and it is making me droopy, so I am going to try to apply your snow perspective to my rain, Goose. Thank you, thank you!

  6. I love your snow pictures, Goose. Those were definitely some big flakes and lovely spring pictures too.

  7. You sure haz some snow Goose, wez can't wait for spring now, so we can do our planting.. I helps Daddy :) xx00xx

  8. Yes Goose Spring is on the way. Have a marvelous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. You are a wise fellow mate! Deccy x

  10. Snow is a pain but it is pretty and fun to play in. We are getting snow today and rain tomorrow. We guess for us this is good because it means it has warmed up a little.

    Happy snowball fighting! Lee and Phd

  11. That was a lot of snow falling there Goose! We absolutely love the picture of you with the snowflakes on your back. You look like a polka-dot dog.

    You're right about the need for snow (and rain and every other kind of weather too.) Tho we are enjoying being in FL and missing all the snow, we love to see in on the blogs.

    Three cheers for May Flowers.....

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  12. Morning Goose.
    THANK goodness you have long legs and good muscles to leap over the deep snow.
    That was a lot of snow for one afternoon. If that happened here our city would shut down. MOL
    We had a prediction of freezing rain overnight so the schools were delayed for 3 hours...

    I love your fall, winter, spring and summer pictures always.
    Hugs madi your BFFF

  13. Oh Goose! You make snow seem so beautiful!!! I guess after all of that, I can be a little thankful for snow!! Tell you mom to drive safe in all that white stuff!!


  14. Oh that is so true about what the snow brings. Sure hope we get some, just not a lot. It was nice to see pretty flowers and green grass. Can't wait for Spring. Have a great week Goose an Mom.

  15. You sure have had your fair share this year. :) We could use a little more since we were so dry last summer. We are getting ice right now. Yuck!

  16. That is a lot of snow! Wowzers! For a minute I thought you grew white spots overnight. We've actually been wishing we'd get a little of the pretty snow, but so far this winter, no luck! Just a few ice storms, which are not fun.

  17. haha now you are a snow leopard ;o) Be careful and stay warm ;o) Thanks for sharing your spring and summer pictures with me. I'm waiting eager for the spring and the summer ...

  18. Even though My Vickie and I LOVE the snow, we are getting a bit antsy to get up into the mountains and photograph the moose, play in the lake and hike in the hills, so your spring and summer pictures were pretty nice to see.

    However, wasn't that storm a great one. I mean, those snowflakes really were big. We took little black Cosmo outside to go potty and four snowflakes fell on his back and head and just those four were so big that his whole boddy was white.



  19. you look like you love the snow....and it is life giving. we are praying for rain here....

  20. That snow sure does have some good qualities. Have a fun day
    Benny & Lily

  21. Snow is beautiful and it does indeed eventually quench the thirst of the land and make it bloom again - I guess we just get a bit impatient waiting for the bloom part again :)

  22. OH MY... Goose those are HOOOOGE flakes.... and a LOT of PILE UP.
    We HOPE that it covered the ICE so that it is easier to walk.
    You certainly do have a PAWSitive Attitude. THAt is good fur YOU and it helps US too!!!
    Stay SAFE.

  23. I say if it's going to snow, those big fat fluffy flakes are the BEST kind!

  24. We got rain....which means that dangerous ICE! Enjoy your snow, my friend!

  25. You're most definitely looking on the bright side of snow. I don't know what snow's supposed to hit 80 here this afternoon!

  26. Very true! I am welcoming the snow to cover the hard ground!

  27. Thanks Goose for putting it into perspective ... will try to quit grumbling about all this white stuff :)!

  28. We love snow, but Mama stops walking us when it gets too cold.

  29. Amen, Goose! We are suffering from a severe lack of snow (or rain) here and it's scary to think about what that's doing! Actually, we got 9/100" of rain the other night and oh, how wonderful that was! Every single birdie came out first thing in the morning to celebrate!
    Mom and I love the pix of you and your MOM! Especially the one by the stream! Sigh. Mom time! I love that!

  30. These are really nice pictures! I really want snow, but I live in California.

  31. It's a great way to think. We just got snow & freezing rain,ugh!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  32. We got more snows too!

    Stop on by for a visit

  33. I wish for snow every day can have our rain if ya want!! I know, I know, same thing in the end, butts at least YOU get to play in yours! Rain is no fun to play in!
    Butts, it does keep Ma plants all green, so there's that!

  34. Hi Goose, I love your thankful heart Goose. You've had a lot of snow there but I can smell it and as I look at the clouds I knew it's coming. I love being inside when it is snowing and I love how pristine it looks. Hope you are staying warm!
    Wags, Noreen & Hunter

  35. Wow we got more snow too but not that much! We don't mind the snow as much now that the temps are not sub zero anymore! Love your spring pictures.
    Bailey, Hazel & Greta

  36. Snow bring SO much beautiful! I like the way you're able to think of all that beauty when snow flakes the size of silver dollars blur your eye sight. That's the kind of beauty that can transform a day - and a life. Makes us :) real BIG!

  37. Now that is some BIG flakes Goose, wonder if there have ever been doggy sized flakes? Anyway, we love all the seasons, but we like spring the best!


  38. Now you know mom is gonna argue in favor of rain instead of snow. We really liked that last photo!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

    Murphy & Stanley

  41. Hey Goose!
    Wow, those are some seriously whopper-sized flakes! It must have really piled up high. Mine actually started to melt a little today. Great reminder about those pretty flowers. Meanwhile, it's SNOWZOOMIES!! Woohooo!

    Sarge, COP

  42. That's what we say about all the rain we get here in Portland! Well said, Goose.

  43. I have never met snow yet, Goose, but now I love it if it brings all of those beautiful things!

  44. Oooooh, you are so lucky! You are so right about what it brings - all good things. And, it reduces the fire danger! Could you please send us some? Pretty please? We got our biggest snow in a month last night - about 3". Pffft...
