Here at Rainbow Bridge it doesn’t snow We do have mountains where we can climb then play in the snow, go sledding, and partake in snowball fights, while Huskies and their ilk have wonderful fun romping and rolling. But we don’t have any of those cold, windy, icy, snowy days that we hate.
This week, on the mortal side of the Bridge, all across the country, many friends got slammed with snow, ice, wind, and downed power lines. When they went to do their business they got snow covered paws, icy and damp fur, and the dreaded toweling off.
Thankfully no one was lost in the big cold fluffy. All our parents survived. As I sit up here on the green banks looking in the River of Life I must admit I don’t miss sticking my who who in the freezing snow to melt a little with my pee, and I was able to muffle a snicker when Pocket went to settle into a squat and ended up spread eagle on the ice.
When I was a youngster Mommy, Daddy, Blake and I would go walking in the early evening at the state mental institution, through the snow, and I would scoot my bottom on the cold. This got both my parents very upset, and they took me to the vet, who found nothing wrong. But there was something wrong: I thought it was a bad idea to be walking at the state mental institution at night and my scooting got them to reconsider their fallacy.
Let’s see how some of our friends soldiered through the storm.
Snow can’t keep our friend Leo from looking regal and proud.
Meika has already formed her opinion and is done with the snow for the year.
Scooby and Odie pose for a picture despite cold paws.
Molly is done with the cold and wants in now!
Toby, Maggie and Pokey make the best of a cold situation.
It looks like this is going to be the start of a long winter with plenty of snowy pictures. So here is to the snow dogs: May they always have a safe and warm place to hide from the cold.
