White, wet cold stuff. Could it be......SNOW?

I've heard my mom and dad talking at times about the "Blizzard of '83." Now, I'm not sure if they are talking about 1983 or 1883. They're not all that old, so I'm assuming it's 1983. They said we got 7 inches of snow one day.

Snow. I've never seen it. Well, there was that icy stuff up in Louisville, but that wasn't snow. My mom has showed me photos and videos of dogs playing in snow....running, frolicking, playing happily. It looks like so much fun.

Well, we finally got our chance. Sunday, it started snowing, and it snowed....and it snowed....and it snowed....and then it snowed some more. By Monday morning, we had S-I-X WHOLE INCHES!

When my dad took us out Monday morning, I couldn't believe my eyes. Everything was white...not just a few blades of grass and some leaves like our usual snow. Our whole yard, the neighbors' yards, the streets, the driveway, all the trees, all the branches, our mailbox, our shrubs....everything was a bright white. It was actual, real, northern-type snow!

At first Spud, Hoppy and I just sniffed. All of our leaves, dirt, blades of grass...everything smelled so different with snow on it. But then my mom got out the Jolly Ball and the wubba, and the race was on. We had a blast!

Here's a video my mom made. Enjoy!

See you on the dock (or snow pile),

Hi Sally
You guys looked really cool in the snow - we love snow too!
The music was great. You were very
energetic chasing your wubba and jolly ball!
Bet you were tired after all that and not a dock in sight to jump off!!
love and kisses

Even though I like to play in snow, I'm so glad I decided to give it up this time and have it sent to you. It really warmed my heart to see you guys enjoying your first bigtime snow. Your mom sure does know how to operate those toys in her office. GREAT job! I bet you slept good last night!
Hugs and snowy slobbers!

A different kind of fun. Kind of feels like water when you can find enough to jump in :)

GOOD GRIEF! You really got a lot of snow up there in Georgia. My dog Casey would freeze to death. So would I! But it sure looks like fun. Tell your mom thanks for the great video.

I am laughing at your comment to me, and the fact that I double commented on this post.

May as well make it a trifecta ;)
