Frozen digits at 11pm


Yup, I think mom was trying to freeze off her fingers and toes.  It was 11pm and she was outside with no shoes or gloves and her camera is blazing away.  She wouldn't let me come out and join in the fun.  Do I look happy?

                        Well, here are the results of her near frostbitten foray at 6 degrees.

                          ( Looks like the rose bush is getting a pruning...it needed it anyhow.)

                             ( A young moose, probably one of last years babies. Curious but shy.)

                                                  (Really cute, check out those ears!)

        ( And of course it is blissfully munching away on my Clematis. Could of bet money on that one)

( I really love that we have moose wander in and out of our yard on a regular basis.  Puts me in touch with nature and the bigger picture.  It's not all about us, we share this world with so many amazing creatures! )

( OK, I can no longer feel my fingers or toes.  Time to get back in the warm house and comfort my dog.
He really wanted to be out here to protect me, but it probably would have worked out the other way.)            

                              I hope you all enjoy the pictures of the little Christmas Moose.

                   MERRY CHRISTMOOSE   TO ALL,
                 AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!



  1. It's so amazing that you have moose visitors on and off, that little moose with big ears is so cute!

  2. Oh the Christmas Moose is just darling :)

    I hope your fingers and toes are okay! Crazy Mom! 6 degrees?! But thanks for doin it ;)

    Waggin at ya,

    PeeS: If we can send you an ornament from Florida, we would love have another special one from beautiful Alaska :) Let us know 1roodog(at)gmail(dot)com The Roo Family :)

  3. That is so cool! He is adorable, big snout and all. I guess he's old enough to be on his own? I was a little worried you might get charged by an angry Mom!


  4. Awesome! He is sooooo cute. It is amazing to think you have a Moose in your front yard. :)

  5. Oh, how awesome is that?! Thanks for sharing!

  6. That's amazing that you could get that close (even with a zoom). He's pretty awesome!!

  7. Ryker I love your moose-es (?) All I have is a bunny geeze!

  8. I knew those guys were Rose Bush eaters!! He is just beautiful!!
    You better get some hay, or you won't have any plants by spring!! haha!


  9. Such a special blessing to see these creatures on a regular basis, they are so beautiful, as is Ryker with snowflakes on his coat. He's such a beautiful boy!!!

  10. That's so cool, just like your hands and feet after taking those photos!
    I wouldn't mind the moose nibbling on my dead plants, but come Spring and Summer, well I might not be so happy with the pruning if it got to be too much.
    Do the moose get to habituated to humans with that wandering through civilization? And if so, doesn't that make them a bit more dangerous?
    Just thinking of what goes on with the bears in the suburban Vancouver area, and how they are always encouraging people to scare them off and not leave anything out that they would eat.
    A fed bear quite often ends up being a dead bear.

  11. ok, that is just the COOLEST thing since sliced bread! I love it! How lucky you are (and I hope the fingers/toes/feet are ok!)

    I love that last shot of the moose.

  12. Just catching up on posts for the week. Sorry about your eye, but the dog park looked like a blast. And you ended the week with the moose. Wow - what a week!

  13. Just stopping by from the Pet Blogger Hop, I had a mini aussi for years and she was the love of my life.


Ryker is wiggling to hear your comments!
