Wow! Did we ever get hammered with snow on April 1st! It was no joke, no April Fools prank, it was real. My poor bird feeder was covered.
I must say it was beautiful, although it would have been more so in January then in April! The trees were covered with heavy wet snow, just the right kind to make snowmen.
A lot of branches came down from the weight of it but we were lucky and only lost a few plus some of the gutters off the back of the house.
I love how the red of the barn looks against the white of the snow.
The grands were here this weekend as the kids were in Arizona. Miss T wanted to go see the boys so up we went with a big bag of cut up carrots. See how high the snow bank is?!
Nick is always glad to see her and comes running right over. He rules the roost and the others have to wait for their carrots.
I’ll be glad to get him out of that dirty winter blanket and take the pressure washer to it!
Big hugs for all of them.
Kipper has done well on his exercise routine and has lost some weight this winter although it’s hard to tell with all the fuzzies!
Lil’ Bud is looking good for 23 years old even if he does have a pretty good sway back going on!
After our visit at the stable we headed over to the Humane Society to pick up my cooler and to check out some of the cute animals. This is Goldie, the Chairman of the Board and resident BHS cat.
We loved this guy! How pretty!
Then to see some of the puppies. OH. MY. Word. Were they ever cute!!
Look at those faces!
This was a fat little guy! My personal favorite but T liked the brindle one.
I think he would have fit right in my pocket! :o)
Here is Mom who is taking such good care of all six of her babies. Notice one has climbed into the food dish! She is such a sweetie, letting us see and hold her puppies. Her name is Daisy and when I took my boots off and sat in the pen with all of them she climbed right into my lap. She will gain weight after she weans all those kids. (I took my boots off and washed my hands so that I didn’t bring any germs into the pen that might not be good for them.) For safety purposes I didn’t let T come into the pen.
These little guys won’t be ready to go for another six weeks so they are not on display yet. It would be too stressful for Mom to have a lot of people looking, talking, and of course oowing and ahhing!
Snowbird and Snowbird Jr. arrive from the sunny south tomorrow morning. This will be quite a shock to them to land in Tundra country as my good friend Mrs. Mom calls it! heehee! They arrive here at 10:30 A.M. and my brother and SIL are picking them up at the airport. They are so fortunate to have a nonstop flight from Florida, it makes it so much easier for them and Buffy the Princess Cat. :o)
