Fun in the Snow

Yippee! A couple of days ago I woke up to find our garden covered with snow.


Homer’s ‘White House’.



Man, I couldn’t wait to get out there!



Finally, Missus let me out into my winter wonderland.



Of course, I’m no stranger to snow now having spent last winter in Holland. Still, I always get a buzz from sniffing around in the white stuff.



I noticed Dad beavering away trying to clear the snow...



...so, I thought I’d try to help out by eating some.



Soon, Dad decided to make a fun game out of his snow-shovelling.



Here it comes...



...Woo hoo!



Unfortunately, the game wasn’t so much fun when the snow landed.



'Bah’!


Next it was time for some ball games.

Here I am playing ‘snow tennis’.



Dad was hot on my heels, but I soon gave him the slip.



"Run Homer, RUN!”



Then, we had a go at snow football. Of course, as you know, I’m a bit of a footballing legend .



I was the goalie. I already have some experience in this position .



Here I am, waiting to catch the ball...



...where the heck is it???



D'oh!



What shall we do next Missus?


I know. We’ll make a snowman...

A couple of ‘frosty faces’.



All too soon, it was getting late and time to say good bye to the snow.



Good night ‘Frosty’! Buona notte.

oh boy! We never get snow here...at least not right where we live. Mom wanted to take me to some last weekend, about an hours drive, but we had a bit of a heat wave and by the time the weekend rolled around it was all melted.

Ooh - Homer, I'm even more jealous now!! Not only do you live in a wonderful house but you also have all that beautiful snow and a huge garden to play in! (Seriously, your garden is probably bigger than some of the stupid so-called "dog parks" here in Australia!)

Slobbers,
