winter 2017

It’s been a bad year for precipitation. Since I got back from Thailand, it’s only rained once–maybe twice.

The first snow of the season (something I’d usually expect in November) comes at the very end of December. It sure is pretty, though.

Sadie has rediscovered snow, after Lucy showed her the joy of bounding through it. All of our dogs are at least some part basset, so even a moderate snow storm like this one has the snow up to their chests.

Fox-like, Sadie likes to shove her face in the snow to check out what’s going on beneath. But she really likes running through it.

Here’s Lucy and Sadie playing:

PS: Penny, the very serious and dignified basset, wanted no part of the snow or the playing.
