SNOW DUMP



Snow dump in progress, it is really coming down.  When we wish for snow up here this is what we are wishing for!  Soooo pretty, and lots of shovel attacking for me!  I can bite a shovel faster than you can!




Mama loves taking snowy pictures of me, go figure.



Snow Frisbee is a major workout!



You can really sink your teeth into it!


 Just make sure there is someone around to dig you out should you disappear!




This is some deep S**t



Once I have broken trail the going gets easier.

 Future Christmas card shot...



 Panda Bear?




 The aftermath... nothing like a warm shower to melt your troubles away.





 Expecting four days of sun followed by lots more snow.  I say BRING IT ON!

    1. Keeping a dog mentally stimulated is important. If we don’t pay enough attention to our dogs’ minds, they often become bored or start misbehaving, and their mental health can quickly deteriorate. To avoid these problems, here are 5 quick tips to challenge your dog’s brainpower and turn him into a genius!

      1) Go off the Beaten Path

      Yes, literally, walk your dog on new routes every once in a while. If you take your dog on walks using the same path each and every day, he’s missing opportunities to come across anything new. But don’t limit this philosophy to walks; expand it to all areas of your dog’s life. Teach your dog a new skill, let him sniff new places, or try taking part in a doggy sport. Keep your dog’s environment full of new and exciting things, and offer him plenty of opportunities to use his brain.

      2) Hide Your Dog’s Toys

      Dogs can be quite determined when it comes to getting the things they want, so why not use this to put their brains to work? If your dog wants a toy, try placing it under a laundry basket or hiding it under a blanket (making sure he sees you put it there). Then, sit back and watch him use his problem-solving skills to try and get it. When he solves the puzzle, praise him just as he reaches for the toy.

      If your dog struggles or gets frustrated, make the exercise easier at first, and then gradually make it harder and harder over time.

      3) Increase Your Dog’s Vocabulary

      Dogs are always ready to learn new words, so why not take the time to expand your dog’s vocabulary? For example, you could start saying “let’s go potty” just before opening the door to let your dog out. After doing this often enough, your dog should come running over to be let out whenever you say “let’s go potty.” Dogs are pretty fast to learn to associate a particular action with a word, and are quick to anticipate what will happen next, so you will usually see results very quickly.

      4) Never Stop Training

      Don’t stop training your dog when he reaches his golden years. “If you don’t use it, you lose it” especially applies to senior dogs. Yes, old dogs can learn new tricks, the only thing is, they may take just a little bit longer to learn them, but be patient and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. So don’t let that brain go to rust, a dog’s brain never loses its ability to learn new things so long as you give it the chance.

      5) Brain Training for Dogs

      The brain is like a muscle – if you don’t challenge it, it won’t grow! That’s why the best way to make your dog smarter is by teaching him special “brain games” and “brain exercises.” Brain games are fun little games you can play with your dog to teach him new skills and increase his intelligence. Here’s a great “Brain Training for Dogs” course containing 21 awesome brain games, including treasure hunts, hide and seek, playing the piano, and much more, that will take you step-by-step as you turn your dog into a well-behaved and obedient genius!

  3. We got, and are still getting a real dump of snow, but your's beats ours! I was going to ask if Ryker got snowballs, but that was pretty obvious, haha!. Does he always get them or does it depend on the temperature? Luna gets them really bad, and Tucker is not far behind. Jake not as much and Chy the husky, not at all.
