It was a Funny Old Day...

I was a bit grumpy this morning when I awoke to be faced with a garden full of snow. It's the thickest snow we've had in the South East of the UK for YEARS! As you know, I like my home comforts and I certainly didn't appreciate getting snow clumps stuck to my legs. The only good thing about today was that everything ground to a halt and people were all cheerful and stuff. There were no buses or trains in our neck of the woods and the schools and universities were shut. J1 had an impromptu day off work, hurrah! When we went to the park it was full of students and school kids throwing snowballs. At least they knew better than to throw them at me, although J1 got one on the back of the head.

Here's a brief video of me barking at the people enjoying themselves:



Yes, I know. It doesn't look like that much snow, but the path I'm walking on had all been trampled. In my garden it was so high it was up to my undercarriage so J2 made a snow dog. Later this afternoon I ate his nose.



Not sure how long this snow is planning on sticking around. Hope it's not too long...

hey jax, i hope you thaw out soon. i kind of like the snow. i like to shovel it up in my mouth. but after a while i got icicles hanging from my hairy feet, and when i tried to eat them off, my amourous friend cooper the whippet decided to take advantage of me! hrmph! now i am tired, and warming sarah up nicely.

hey you look Jackson Cool in your lovely warm coat!

Snow, dear lord - we have had loads of it here in bonnie Scotland today and my J has been so mad, because although we are up to our necks in the white stuff, there is no mention of our torture on the national news.

I posted some pics on my blog so you could see how snowy it has been!

G'day Jax,

That's a bootiful snowdog. I hope J1 is over getting a snowball. Crikey, I've never even seen snow! Mum says it's the white stuff you see on the mountains when you're dwiving your convertible down the fweeway in California and that it's like ice cweam. It must be wondewful!. xxx Asta (oz)

Hi, Jackson...

Yeah...I'm not a fan of the snow, either...

Looks like you had a nice walk in the park, though...That's always nice...

That snow dog is really nice...Your Mom is very talented...

It kind of looks like you...

Abby xxxooo

Jackson!

Looks to me like a fun day, and it looks like you had a good time greeting everyone at the park! (We LOVED hearing your voice on the vid.)

Glad you got to spend the day with PL1! That snowdog is something else... especially if you ate his nose!

Goober love,
Stanley

Glad you had a fun snowday, even if J1 got gobsmacked.

Molly and Taffy said...

Jackson we have to say you look in fine fettle and oh so smart in your winter coat.

We have negotiated a few slippery paths over the past week and have come to the conclusion we are so much better off than the hoomans. A leg in each corner is a definite asset in these current weather conditions.
