Snow Animals

It's very important to have an active imagination. When I get to play in the snow, I pretend to be all kinds of animals:

I run like a bunny!

I "swim" through the snow tunnels and hunt like an alligator!

And I peek my head up from the deep just like a groundhog!

But my best skills are the ones that belong to Corgis just like me. Those include sprints, obstacle courses, fetch, and, of course, extreme cuteness in all possible circumstances.

Happy snow day, part 2!

Snow Day!

Oh my. We had a blizzard! I've never seen so much snow!! Today my house looks like this:

My yard looks like this:

And my car is buried!

I heard that near my new house, where I'll be living at the end of this month, there's a big hill where people are sledding today. If I lived there, I'd be hanging out with those kids today! But I don't live there yet, so I'm just hanging out with Mom and Dad, on the lawn by the big museum across the street.

I love snow, even when it's much deeper than I am tall!!

Nothing can stop me from running and playing with my dad. The only thing about snow is that I have to leap like a bunny to get after him. Luckily, it also means that I'm slowed down enough to have the leash dropped while we play.

I'm having a great time out there today - how about you? Will you go sledding or make a snow angel? Will you make a snowman? Don't forget to make him a snow puppy, too, to keep him company in the cold!

The 5 Most Important Components of a Great Weekend

1.  Belly Rubs

For obvious reasons, it is best to start the day with some morning snoozes and belly rubs. It's healthy, comforting, and good for our family relationships.

2.  Yoga with Momma

It's best for both of us if we get moving with a workout and stretches. I get my chest rubbed while Momma's seated; I get between her and floor as often as possible; and I kiss her face while she does push-ups. 

It's hard work.

3.  Park Time

There are two great things about the park. One is soccer. There's not much to say about it. It is simply my favorite activity, and I will happily chase any possible thing that a person will kick for me.

Cool action shot, huh?

The other great thing about the park is friends. You've already met my friend Murphy in a previous post. Now let me introduce you to my friend Camden. Because he just got a little sister recently and doesn't get as much of his momma's attention as usual, and because it's winter so neither of us gets out as much as we like, we're both much too busy to pose for a photo lately.

4.  Couch Naps

I get a lot of nap time during the week. On weekends, I stay so busy that naps become precious, so I catch them when I can. The great thing about weekend naps is that I can usually take them on the couch. Most preferably, on someone who's on the couch.

In fact, here I am right now, my paws twitching as I dream of chasing soccer balls while Momma types this post for me with one hand. That's how important nap times are to a great weekend.

5. Did I Mention Belly Rubs?

I hope you had a great weekend, too!
