Saturday's Spring Surprise - SNOW

Yes, Mother Nature is playing games with us. We woke up to about four inches of snow. Here is what Thunder and Ciara decided to do this morning, early this morning. Sorry this first video is so dark, but check the time on the title and you will understand why. Miss Puppypants doesn't know the days of the week yet.

A few photos with daylight.

I know you are watching and waiting to pounce on me, Ciara.
But I am SO ready for you.

Thinking about this white stuff.

Thinking some more.

Getting ready to stop thinking and start zooming.

And now check out our daytime fun video.

Woos from snowy OP - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Hi guys,

Unlike you doggies, we are not happy about this Spring snow. Mom promised us a road trip but now we aren't going. I've got my paws crossed the sun comes out soon.

Huffle Mawson said...

Mum says if Ciara is going to wake her up that early, maybe she doesn't want to pupnap her after all :)

BeadedTail said...

So that's what 5am looks like? It does look like a lot of fun to do zoomies in the snow! Phantom looked like he wanted to play but then maybe not. Have fun in your snow!

Sagira said...

Wow, 4 inches of snow on the first day of spring? That isn't right... Was 66 and beautiful here today.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

"This white stuff. I like it. I think I will call it 'snow'."

Stella said...

Phantom is the smart one, he just stays in the sack for the snow activity. Brother TD seems to be having a wonderful time with his little sister though.


Cyber-sibes said...

SGR said...

Woof! Woof! Yes indeed ... WINTER came back. Hoping it will not last long. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Twinkietinydog said...

Your siberian bunny wabbit, Ciara, just made me fall in love with snow. I want to come play and I can't believe I'm saying that. Brrr
How fun, both videos. I laughed at the camera panning on Phantom inside.
I hope you guys all got some rest during the day.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

WOOS to you!
Beautious photos you shared of the pack in the snow!!!
We had a sunny warm day
And then the wind came
And then the clouda came
Now we will wait to see what happens next


Aaah Ciara,

You look so pretty in the snow! You little beauty you! Butt, you are starting to get bigger now. Wow!

Riley and Star.

Alex93andme said...

I love the videos!!! Fun time zoomies in the snow. It's precious!!! Ciara looks like she is growing by the hour! Hot here today for some reason! Lots of love to all...I bet they wore themselves out running around for now and I hope they have a good night sleeping to start again tomorrow!! Debbie and Holly

Sam said...

Too cute!


River said...

That's a lot of snow for the first day of spring!

Lorenza said...

I knew Ciara would love the snow!
5 am?? Hmmm... Your mom is pawesome!
I am sure my mom would not be happy to be outside at that time... and in the snow!
Kisses and hugs

Suuuuurrre.... BLAME "Miss Puppy Pants" for the 5 a.m. play call. It takes TWO to Tango, TD! And you are tango-ing woo-fully well!

and i swee you watch her make snow angels and you're all like "that AIN'T NO ANGEL! She's the devil in disguise!"

LOL! Ohhhh I'm watching phantom in the window, why is P inside? oh, he just goes out for a quick break, eh? not much of a player?

Noah the Airedale said...

Oh wow, you're still getting snow. Looks like fun.

Pippa said...

Good thing there wasnt too much snow or Ciara might have got lost. 5am is cool, I like it myself.

Pippa xx

achieve1dream said...

5am! Yuck! But so cute! I love the puppy snow angels. :)


I bet thunder is worn out from all that bitey face. Oh nice paw work td.. I like your bite C's leg than put your paw on the shoulder move. I'd love to have snow but mom is very pleased with our 70 degrees.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh you guys got a lot more snow than we did. Little Ciara sure is enjoying it.. Ours is just in the grassy areas and then we have mud but it is cold. We went from 70 degrees on Friday to snow last night...

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

KB said...

It looks to me like snow has the same effect on your doggies as on mine - they just wanna have fun! And, Ciara wanted to have fun at 5AM on a Saturday? Get that girl a calendar so she knows which days are for sleeping late!!!!

What cuties.

Sue said...

You guys are lucky, you got snow to play in. We got ice with a layer of snow over it and another layer of ice on top of that. It isn't much fun except that we like to chew on the ice.

Samantha said...

Puppy and bitey-facing in Spring wonderland! Love that 5am movie with pups running over virgin snow - classic! And love all the pix and later vids - sibes are definitely created fur
SNOW!!! Wonderful post - love seeing Ciara with her bros!
Big Hugs xo

Kari in WeHo said...

Ginger Jasper said...

I dont like the white stuff but I do like watching you playing in it.. That is so lovely to watch.. We looked at it a couple times.. Loved how much fun that sweet baby had.. HUgs GJ xx

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

We are utterly speechless!

JD and Max said...

Oh Ciara, you are getting a big girl! You've grown so much since we last saw you - and that was just a few days ago! We simply loved watching you play in the snow - can't beat watching a doggie having fun for making you feel good! We're glad you're enjoying the white stuff. Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Mack said...

Wow - Ciara is very energetic at 5AM!
But boy does she love that snow like her brothers!!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, what fun! We just love to watch the experts play in the snow.

Thanks for the comment on our blog changes. Jan is still making changes and has a long way to go. Ciara will probably be an old lady by the time Jan finishes.

Maggie and Mitch said...

We sure wish it would have snowed at our house! Mom is glad that it didn't! You guys are sure having fun!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Clive said...

We loved all the snow pics but we're glad (well Murray's Mom is) that there is no chance of snow here! She just spent the weekend planting lots of spring bedding!

Looks like you are having great fun though! Ciara is gorgerous!

take care
Clive and the NSLM

ps-about speaking French - well the family lived Brussels for five years and Sorcha went to a local school and was fluent when we moved back to Dublin (she was 5 then). Unfortunately she's lost most of it now but her Mom and herself still try to speak a little and love getting the chance to use 'their bad French' in Paris! The NSLM's dad worked with Flemish and French speakers for those five years but never picked up a word - lanugages are not his strong point and everyone always wanted to speak English to him anyway!

The Thundering Herd said...

Ciara - As a pup, your obligation is to get your humans up early no matter what day of the week it is. It is in the contract.

Mango said...

It appears Ciara knows how to PULL! Great sled dog in training. Well, good for you that you have snow. I know you are loving it (although maybe not so much for your photographer at 5AM).


Benny and Lily said...

snow! yikes...

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Your Saturday looks great! Ours was miserable. Sunny and almost 70 degrees!

Mom has been working this weekend on making DVDs with all of our home movies. She had a good laugh at the times on the puppy videos. 4 AM, 3:30 AM, etc. Looks like Ciara is keeping up the trend!


Life With Dogs said...

It's been that kind of spring. Even the flowers are confused. But the dogs never complain. :)

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

The 5am zoomies was very familiar to us! We like to do similar romps. Now that last video at the beginning looked like little Ciara was trainging for the Iditarod! She is quite tenacious in her playing! Looks like the way Hootie and I play.
Smooches, BabyRD & Hootie

Alasandra said...

We wants Khyra's 72 degrees and sunny you can keep the snow. We are tired of cold. But it sure did look like you pups had FUN playing in it. ~AFSS

Ruby and Penny said...

You guys look so happy playing in all that snow.
Love Ruby & Penny

Anna the GSD said...

The weather peoples here said it was officially "spring" but it's cold here today. Boo. Cold with no snow. If it's going to be cold it could at least snow!

But mom said Old Man Winter is almost gone. I never actually met him, but mom said it will be warm here this week. Maybe he's coming to stay with you?

Melissa and Emmitt said...

oh our first day of spring looked very similar here in CO.

i know the flowers will be even brighter now tih all of the pretty moisture!

Happy Happy Spring!

bbes tribe said...

Great videos! Mom really enjoyed them. It brought back memories of the Sibes they had. & they lived for 15 years. Someday Mom says she is going to take over our blog and write about all their other dogs. Guess I'll have a day off. Thanks for sharing!!

Toby- The dog with a blog said...

Snow is sure a lot of fun, you look soo cute!

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

My Jeannie says she can hardly bear to look at all your snow (though you are all so cute! Esp Ciara!

We have had so much snow we cannot take any more.

Luckily the past few weeks it has gone, hopefully for a long while now.

The sun has been out and we are enjoying warm springlike weather. Wishing some for you too.

love and licks, Marvin xxxx

YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

This is Ciara's first snow right? Woohoo! Snow zoomies are so much fun!

Sam & June

BRUTUS said...

Oh no!! Hope that white stuff doesn't show up again here! We are really liking seeing green again! At least you guys know how to have a good time in the snow - you can keep it all!!

Dory and the Mama said...

Lacy said...

Ruby's Raiser said...

You are a wonderful puppy mommy, not only getting up at 5am to let baby Ciara play in the snow, but having the coordination, pre-coffee, to tape it! :)

Tanuki Maxx said...

Sibes in snow!! Kool!


Siku Marie, White Dog said...

I am glad you all got one last? hurrah of the fluffy white stuff! Ciara is bigger on every old until she doesn't act like the energizer bunny?

TwoSpecialWires said...

Well. This is an example to show just how far behind we are. That snow has come and gone. We got over a foot of snow on Friday. Now 90% of it is melted and we walked (sort of) in the park in 70° weather today. Now another storm is around the corner. Shall we send it your way, as well? It sure looks like Ciara would vote for us to!

Keep having fun. And know we haven't furgotten you, even when we are banned from the computer.
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Cheyenne -Millie said...

You look so happy there in that snow! I think My Monty would love snow.

Great Zoomies!! Cool night time video! Give it such an interesting look!

Mochi and Mommy said...

Ciara looks so happy in the snow! Looks like you pups had tons of fun! :)

My internet is sick right now and only works for an hour or so. They are supposed to come fix it on Thursday. For now I am reading your posts on mom's phone, but the keyboard is too small for my paws. :)


Rambo said...

Ms. Puppypants got up pretty early. Didn't that drive your Mom bananas???
Looks like she had fun in the snow.
I have been sunbathing...yes it's been close to 80 degrees here.
