We made it!

Yup, we made it into the New Year.  I know we haven't posted in a while, but are doing fine.  It has been snowing like crazy here and it's coming down as mama does this blog entry (finally!) for me.

I got a new 'glow in the dark' Frisbee and a basketball for Christmas, turns out I am a great soccer player and goalie.  Who knew?  I can even herd this thing, although it took a few days to get the hang of it.

Mama had to use her little camera because her good one was in her car that was stuck up in the mountains.  Dad took it out at four in the morning to fix something up there and got it stuck.  So her camera sat up there in the ten below zero weather over night since dad didn't know it was in there.  Anyhow, that kinda explains the picture quality...

As we spent more time outside playing in the driveway mama said the camera had more and more trouble focusing due to the cold. She finally had to give up taking pictures and just join in the game.

Then my footsies started to ice up and freeze...man!  I rarely complain about the cold but it is really bitter cold out today!

Hey, Mama!  Lets go back inside and warm up, I think I've had enough for now.

Mama did get her camera and car back after two days.  Dad, after several failed attempts to dig it out and a near moose attack relented and called a tow truck.   Now I just have to bite her in the butt to get back outside and shoot some more pictures of me!

Many Thanks to the Five Sibes (http://fivesibes.blogspot.com/) Kreative Blogger Award!




  1. Ryker, your photos are beautiful! We can't believe how much snow you have. It's been in the 80's here in Southern California all week, though it's cooler today. Keep your toes warm!

    You and Luna could probably have a good soccer game together:)
    Keep warm!

  3. Woooo! We are so jealous, no snow here yet, paws crossed bol!!


  4. We missed your posts and kept looking in to see if you had written something, First we were sad, but then we just looked at your Christmas lights pictures again and it cheered us up.

    Now we must hear more about the moose attack.

    You know we love moose, but we would never wnat to be around one that was mad at us.

    You got some cool toys for Christmas.

    Way to go.

  5. OMD! you have so much snow there! To someone like me who live next to the equator, I don't feel the coldness at all but the beauty of it made me so want to join you.

    Moose attack? That sounds horrible.

  6. Happy New Year Ryker! :) Luved your card pal! Thanks for sendin it! :) That's dang cold if your paws are freezin! Maybe some booties would help? I'm envisioning you and your Mom playin soccer in the snow..... :D What fun! :D

    Waggin at ya,

  7. You have so much snow! Hope you got to warm up with a nice cup of hot doggie co co :)

  8. I think of you and my other Alaska friends each time I see that there is snow there! I also thought of you when the winter solstice was on the 21st. There's a part of me that misses my life there because I do miss the snow. But then another part that reminds me that I'm where I'm supposed to be.

  9. Happy New Year!

    My brother has one of those glow in the dark frisbees as well.

    That is a lot of snow, it is taller than you!

  10. Happy New Year. I can only imagine what "really bitter cold" means up there. It would leave the rest of us huddled by the fire!

    Ryker is so handsome, and you take fabulous photos of him. I hope that your "good" camera survived its sub-zero experience.

  11. Brrrrr...I can feel it whipping around my legs...glad you got some new toys for Xmas...now git yer Mommy out there and chase them.

  12. Is that a new header? Or am I just behind....

    Glad your Mom got her camera (and car) back! That's a little bit of snow, but it must make herding that ball a bit easier.

  13. PS..just heard that Alaska has 15 metres(yds) of snow...as if you didn't know...sorry!

  14. Your winter life is so exciting! We still have 50 degrees...actually it's kinda nice, we are all going to work out in the yard tomorrow :D

    We WOULD like a couple of days of snow....


  15. Happy New Year, Ryker!! I hope all is well in Alaska and you're not submerged in snow. Thinking of you.

  16. Basketball....we've never tried that in the snow. If it ever snows here again, we'll have to give it a try! New to your blog, and were so excited to follow along!!


Ryker is wiggling to hear your comments!
