B&W Morning Snow

bwpetalfebsnow bwpetalfebsnow2

What are you guys up to this Sunday? Are you watching the Super Bowl? We’re not. We’re not into sports. A Super Bowl of dog treats would be a different story. Or a Super Bowl of cheese, Petal would like that too.

Whatever you do today, we hope you enjoy your day!

Today we are participating the Black and White Sunday blog hop hosted by Dachshund Nola and Sugar the Golden Retriever. Thanks you two!

We chose snow over breakfast


Last night and this morning we finally got the snow Petal and I wanted. We woke up to a beautiful winter wonderland (pictured above is our early morning view of our front yard (up to the two trees, then it’s the road and then our neighbor’s yard starts at the fence)). Normally when we first wake up we get breakfast and then we wait a few hours before we do anything active, to avoid upset tummies or bloat. But this morning was different. This morning we were excited about the snow. Too excited for breakfast. So we bundled up and ran outside. The only logical thing to do.


See the flakes in front of Petal’s face? Yup, it was snowing pretty heavily when we ran out there at 7:30 this morning.


Snow on her nose, whiskers, face and body.


“And in my eyes too!”


“Seriously. IN my eye!”

We played out there, just the two of us, for a little while before we trekked back inside for breakfast.

A few hours later, around 11 AM, we went back outside with my sister’s dog Penny and the two of them let loose.

You see how Petal’s paw is raised and Penny appears to have no head?

Yeah, don’t mess with Petal, she’ll knock your head off. 😉

They played nonstop for 30+ minutes, racing around the yard, wrestling each other, sneaking up on each other, barking at the neighbors and just having a blast.


Which made for one very happy Petal dog!

FitDog Friday

Today we’re joining the FitDog Friday blog hop for the first time. Thanks to the hosts Slimdoggy, Peggy’s Pet Palace and To Dog With Love.

Here! Catch!

On Instagram there is this hashtag series called #catchseries = pictures of dogs preparing to catch a tasty treat. There are some seriously hilarious and incredible pictures that have come out of this hashtag. I highly recommend checking it out if you’re an Instagram user! While you’re at it check out the user @bordernerd, the clever mind behind #catchseries.

Now this series had me wanting to try this with Petal. But, well, I kept forgetting to.
Until last month when we were outside playing in the snow. Normally a treat is tossed for your dog to catch, but some fresh powdery snow would work just as well, right?

I gave it a try, but didn’t expect to succeed on our first try. I was thrilled when I found that we had! I looked like a lunatic sitting outside in the snow laughing hysterically at my camera.

The cause of my manic laughter:


Part of what made it so funny is that she didn’t even catch it! Her mouth is so wide, so I got this! Yet it was a complete and total miss.

We tried again and Petal had her fight face on:

WMpetsnowcatch2Okay, so it was more like an incredibly sweet little smile. But whatever.
She gave it her all,

WMpetsnowcatch3Looks like it’s going straight for her mouth, right? No WAY she could miss that one!

She did.

My dog can’t catch, guys.

We’ll blame her overbite.


In other news, we’re expecting to get some rain and snow today. We’re hoping for more snow than rain! We think snow is more fun than mud. 😉

Also, I’m (hopefully, if I can give at least half-decent answers to the questions, lol) participating in the Pet Blogger Challenge tomorrow! It’ll be my first time participating in it. Is it silly that I almost feel a little nervous about it?
Are you participating? Are you new to it or have you done it before?

Pet Blogger Challenge Jan. 10


I think that’s all I wanted to say for This ‘N That Thursday.

Thank you to the hosts, 2 Brown Dawgs and Ruckus the Eskie!

Black & White Sunday: Stormy day

Yesterday was a very stormy looking day.


I was hoping we were in for more snow.


But nothing ever came from those dark, gloomy looking skies. Nothing but freezing cold air.

Today we are joining the Black & Sunday blog hop hosted by lovelies Dachshund Nola and Sugar.
