Hi everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here. Like most you the world we’ve been staying close to home.

We had beautiful weather over the weekend.

The yard was finally dry enough for us to get out and do a little sniffing…

…and a little wrestling.

We hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We know some of you don’t really like the snow but for us there’s no place we would rather be.

I like looking for buried treasure.

Here is a little video of some of our snow play fun.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

I love pouncing on Millie while she has her head under the snow.

After I do a fly by I land and relaunch.

Get ready Millie…

…here I come again!

We just love playing in the snow and are happy that today we got a lot more of it. If Mother Nature brings you snow we say to embrace it and have fun playing in it.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We just love playing in the snow.

I love to roll…

…and dig tunnels.

I love to pounce on her…

…while she’s rolling. BOL!

Here’s hoping you all enjoy some good snow fun. We’re expected to get some more in the next couple of days! Woo Hoo!!

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We’ve been enjoying our snowy backyard and being able to get out and play in it. Between playing and zoomies we like to pose for pictures or are we watching out for squirrels?

First I check to my right.

Then I check to my left.

You always have to keep your eyes out for those squirrels. They have lots of nuts stashed all over our yard.

I thought I saw a squirrel over there Millie.
No, I’m sure he went this way Walter.

Either way he went if he is out here we will get him.
(fun fact: if you make the picture bigger you can see Walter in my eye on your left and the photographer in my eye on the right)

We hope you enjoyed seeing us watching out for those pesky squirrels in our yard.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here.

Did you miss me?

We know we’ve been MIA and some of that has to do with our crappy rainy weather. Until a couple of days ago our temps had been above freezing and our backyard was a muddy mess. Needless to say we weren’t spending much time outside but that changed when we finally got some snow to play in and a sunny day.

I love sticking my head into the fluffy snow.

That snow is tasty too!

We had lots of fun playing in the lovely fluffy snow and will show you more of it soon.

I like to clean my nose off…

…while I’m walking.

We hope our snow sticks around for a while so we can enjoy more time playing outside. Our pawrents are still surprised how energetic a couple of 7 year old pups can be. We think it’s because we keep each other young by still enjoying playing with each other. Have a happy Tongue Out Tuesday everyone!

Hi everyone. It’s Millie and Walter here. We’ve been enjoying playing in our snowy yard. One of the things we like doing is hopping up on the stump of the big ash tree that was removed from our yard this summer.

You can really do some regal looking poses on the stump.

It’s also a great place to look out over the yard.

Of course sometimes we both get up there and, well…

It’s Wrestle Mania Time!

Don’t worry. We take turns with each other’s scruff in our mouths. This time Millie happened to have the upper paw.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. Well you might be wondering how Walter’s surgery went yesterday. The truth is it didn’t happen.

This butterfly has quite a lot of snow on her back

On Monday the weather peeps were telling us that we were getting a big storm on Tuesday that would make travel difficult to the vet (remember it is a 1 ½ hour drive from our house). Our mom made the decision to cancel the appointment for safety sake. It has been rescheduled for Wednesday, November 27th.

Instead of having surgery I got to do lots of playing in the snow

Dad made lots of snowballs for us to retrieve

We had about 15+ inches of snow in the past couple of days (this broke records for snow fall amount and low temperatures). It was light and fluffy but packed well for snowballs.

I still have all my teeth.
Don’t you dare chomp them on me.

I love sticking my head in the snow

We sure had a great time playing in the snow

The snow won’t last for long as the temps are supposed to get above freezing during the next week.

We’re sorry we haven’t been around much this past week. Our mom had family visiting and got a little behind in commenting on our friends blogs but she promised to get caught up soon.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie here. As you might remember last Friday we were waiting for Winter Storm Harper to hit our area and boy did it ever!

I wonder what is hiding under the snow.

The snow started around mid day on Saturday and didn’t stop until this afternoon! The first 24 hours were from the storm and the last 24 hours were from lake effect. My mom estimates that we got around 24 to 30 inches (61 to 76 cm).

I like going off trail!

It was quite windy so there are some areas that are up to our mom’s thigh. Of course she is only 5’2″ tall but that is still deep.

I think I hit a dead end.

Walter and I haven’t been able to play in the snow much because the other factor to this storm has been the cold temps we’ve been having. Our high temps haven’t gotten over 15° F (-10° C) with wind chills below zero and late at night or early morning it’s been in the single digits.

That snow is deep and it’s cold out here!

Here is a little action video of us today. Don’t be fooled by the brief amount of sunshine you see. It only lasted for a few seconds and it was snowing right through it (that’s the fun of lake effect snow).

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

On those really cold mornings our mom puts booties on us so we can be out long enough to get all our “business” taken care of without hurting our paws. You should see how many layers of clothes our mom has to wear. BOL!

Patched together panorama of our back yard.

We were getting spoiled with a fairly warm and snow free winter for the past month but Mother Nature is making up for lost time.

No birds are bathing here.

Some of this snow should disappear in a few days as the forecast for Wednesday calls for temperatures in the low 40’s F (5°C) and some rain.

Well I just wanted to let you know that we survived the storm and can’t wait for the temps to warm up a little so we can get out and have fun in the snow. Stay warm friends.
