Hi everyone. It’s Millie here. We’ve seen on some of our friends blogs that spring has sprung in their neck of the woods. Well around here Mother Nature hasn’t gotten the message yet.

Sniffing for something under the snow.

We had a slight break in February with no snow but for the past few weeks our yard has been covered in snow. Of course neither Walter or I are complaining. As a matter of fact we love it and can’t wait to get out to play every day.

There’s nothing like a good roll in the snow

One of my favorite things to do is find a nice spot that hasn’t yet been trampled and take a snow bath. You don’t know what a snow bath is? Let me show you.

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

Please excuse the loud footsteps. The snow is soft and a few inches deep so it makes a loud noise whenever my mom the camera person takes a step.

The snow in the perennial garden was nice and deep

I pushed myself around in a circle leaving a mound in the middle.

After Walter interrupted me in the perennial garden I had to find a new place to finish my bath.

You really have to get your head in the snow for the best results

I feel refreshed now

I also want to apologize for the lighting not being very good. That’s the problem with being a black dog on a bright sunny day with snow on the ground.

The calendar might say spring arrives tomorrow but we are still stuck in below normal temps and tonight’s low will be in the teens! We hope we can get a few more days of snow fun before it’s all gone for the season.

Hi everyone! It’s Walter here. We live in an area where it snows almost every day. If it isn’t from a weather system moving through then it’s from lake effect. When you live on the south (or east) side of one of the Great Lakes you get to enjoy extra snow that most of the country doesn’t.

Millie and I have been enjoying ourselves playing in it almost every day.

I love to play with my Jolly Ball

My Jolly Ball lost its rope a long time ago but I still play with it. I use the hole where the rope was to grab it.

Sometimes I like to lick the snow off it too. Here is a video of some of my ball play and of me trying to catch snow balls that my dad tossed into the big pile of snow.

As you can see Millie was just watching me play and hunting for vermin under the snow.

We have this snow pile on our patio that our pawrents make for us to dig in. It’s snow much fun! Now I have a serious question for one of my special readers.

Miss Tuiren will you go to Paris with me next week for Valentine’s Day?

Miss Tuiren if you remember we were in Paris in 2014 for Date Day and I would love to take you back there next Wednesday for Valentine’s Day. There is going to be a blog hop where we can send a postcard to our friends to tell them all about our trip. We could even double date with Fenris and Millie if he wants to.

I sure hope she says yes! It’s snowing again today so Millie and I will be back outside playing.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here. This is our favorite corner of the family room. We love the way the windows go all the way down to the floor so we can keep our eyes on the backyard.

I think I was here first
It’s so nice to snuggle with you Millie but I think I was here first

We hope you all have a great and snuggly Sunday too.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. It’s so rare this time of year to see the sun out that we both wanted to squeeze into the corner of the family room where the windows go all the way down to the floor. We hope you like our “usie”.

After posing for our picture we decided to do a little snuggling and snoozing. It’s warming up here which means our snow is melting. We hope it doesn’t all disappear.

We are joining, The Cat on My Head, for our first entry in their Sunday Selfies Blog Hop!

Hi everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here. First we have to apologize to Rosy and Lady Shasta for taking so long to do this post. We of course are blaming our mom for dragging her feet.

Look at these pressie packages!

Millie’s pressie package arrived first so we will show you that one first.

I have to help get it out of the box.

Thanks for these great pressies Rosy!

Everything was in that cute burlap bag and there was even a magnet for our mom’s car. She will put it on sometime after she washes it the next time.

Here is a video of us opening the pressie package and our first reactions to the pressies.

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

Thanks Rosy. You sure know how to shop for a gal.

Now it’s time to show you what Walter got from Lady Shasta.

It took some work but I finally got this bag open.

There were four wrapped packages inside.

All of these smell good.
Can I help you open anything?

I’ll open this one for you Walter.

Look at all the great pressies Walter got.

Here is a video of the action to get Walter’s pressie package open and our reaction to what was inside.

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

Thanks Lady Shasta. You sure know how to shop for a guy.

I spent most of my time playing with the gator toy and we put the treats right in our cookie jar. I will wait to use those tennis balls until the winter is over. I wouldn’t want to loose them in the snow. Mom wouldn’t let us eat the two big cookies right away but we did try them a couple of days later and boy were they tasty.

Well that is what we got from the Blogville Christmas Gift Exchange. We want to thank Oreo and his mom for coordinating it and of course a big thanks to Rosy and Lady Shasta for being such great shoppers.

Hi everyone! Today is Millie’s 5th birthday*. It’s hard to believe that the little, floppy eared, bundle of spunk that came to us at 5 months old is 5 already.

Millie on her first day in her forever home

She showed her true nature on her first day here when she decided to pick a fight with one of our garden statues.

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

That looks perfect dad. Can we get it please?

She had her daddy wrapped around her little paw right from the start but seriously who could resist those eyes?

I’m cute huh?

For a while both of her ears were floppy…

…but eventually her right ear started to straighten up.

Her love for snow became apparent during her first winter.


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

In April of 2013 she welcomed Walter with open paws.

What’s daddy eating?
I don’t know but he better give me some first.

Right from the start Millie has been the happiest when she is hanging out in her backyard.

I love laying under my favorite tree

Of course she enjoys sharing her yard with Walter too.

Millie has some quirks that always make us smile.

This is what Millie does every day after breakfast. It took setting up a “hidden” camera to get it on video. If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it

One thing Millie does real well is snuggle.

You call this snuggling? I say she is hogging the bed.

Her favorite place to snuggle is right next to her dad.

Did I mention how much she likes the snow…

…or how much she enjoys hanging out in the yard under her favorite tree?

With all the work going on in the kitchen right now there won’t be much of a celebration but we will make it up to her when the project is finished. We would like to thank Madi and her mom for sending such a sweet birthday card to Millie.

Don’t tell dad that Madi came for a visit

She also received one from Walter’s sweetie Tuiren and her family.

Thanks to our friends for sending such thoughtful cards.

Happy Birthday Millie! We love you!

* We really don’t know when her birthday is but today is a close approximation.

Hi everyone! It’s Cindy here to give you an update on our kitchen renovation. I will also give Walter some room at the end of the post to let you know how he thinks things are going.

As you can see, the wallboard is up and the crew has started putting mud on the walls.

One of the things we are most excited about with our renovation is that we will finally have a vent hood that is exhausted outside.

Vent Hood Exhaust Roughed In

Here is a view of the vent from the outside

Vent hood exhaust just above window

Once the vent is painted it won’t stand out so much.

The replacement cedar siding is up. Now we just have to wait for some warmer and drier weather so Charlie can stain it. We have an appointment next week to have the landscaper come to make plans for moving the steps to the new location of the door.

Now I’ll turn it over to Walter.

Hi everyone! It’s Walter here.

Those men sure do make a lot of noise sometimes

I can’t believe Millie can sleep through this

What was that?

Here is a little action video so you can here how noisy it was. You might want to turn up your speakers a little.

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

As you can see I’m a little more concerned about the work going on in the kitchen than Millie is. To be honest this video was taken on the first day of work. Now that we are about 2 weeks into the project both of us are not as nervous or barky as we were the first day. We do bark at them when they come in first thing in the morning but we settle down much quicker. The crew are very nice and when they have taken their breaks and are hanging out on the patio we sometimes go out and get some pets and have even given a few kisses here and there.

Zzzzzzzzzz…

When the work is done at the end of the day we all crash on the big bed and take a little nap. All this snoopervising work is exhausting!

This weekend our dad gets to paint the walls and ceiling and early next week the cabinets will be installed so stay tuned.
