The snow has not only not stopped – it’s dumping more and more onto my backyard!  And making it difficult to go for my walkies – which cheeses me off.  Mama said that now even the local buses aren’t running, so we’re kind of stranded here.  Tell me that doesn’t mean that you’re just going to sit there mama…

As we just moved here not too long ago from Los Angeles, as you can imagine we weren’t really prepared for the “Arctic Blast” (as it’s being referred to on the TV news).  Even tho we just heard that there hasn’t been this much snow in Portland in over 40 years, that doesn’t make it better.  I’m definitely helping mama keep warm, but there isn’t much I can do about the snow at this point – it’s almost too deep for my legs now, and that is freaking me out.  But we are missing a very important piece of equipment – the SNOW SHOVEL.

No money to go buy one, car not prepared for snow and no buses running.  What’s a boy to do?

That’s right, dad and I decided to make one ourselves.

I know it looks like I’m just sitting there but in reality I’m helping – someone has to come up with the design and supervise the workers.

I’ve gotta be sure that dad is doing this right.  It’s totally makeshift – an old rake that he is attaching to a piece of an old sign.  Prehistoric, eh?

Come on dad, get crackin’!

I need to go out for a little bit to at least do my business, and I’m not walking through that snow again…

Did you hear me?  I’m not walking through belly deep snow again just to poop!

Good.  Just checking.

Almost done…

Allrighty dad, nice work… I will sing your praises…

Stand up, proud snow warrior, and brandish your weapon!

The snow is really INSANE… this is my backyard…

There has to be over a foot of snow – in only a few days…


I’m working on my Snow Stache… hey, I smell a fun contest in there somewhere!

Look how pronounced my beard and stache are when fully covered in snow!

And how do I get such excellent snow stache satisfaction you ask?  Never forget where the word TERRIER comes from…

    We’re the lamb tails pack. Believe us, we know what you’re going through. We’re on the other side of the country in maine, and we’ve got a foot or so of snow. Us pups can’t go on long walkies.. it’s too cold for our paws.

    But.. our baby Suki Loves snow. she will run and play in the snow all day. we’ve seen her do that same face in the snow.. oh dear.

    we haven’t posted pictures on our bloggie yet. Sis is being stingy with the camera. but we think you look airedorable in the snow!

  2. Wow! This must be quite the change from the sunny beaches of LA! Little sisters, Amber & Krissy, can’t wait to get up to Flagstaff to visit the snow!

  3. Hey Bogart,
    You look like Snickers when she buries her whole head in the snow, hehehehe! Our snow is way deeper than we are tall now. It’s tough to get around to go potty. Have you done the bunny hop yet in the snow?? When it’s so deep you can’t walk at all, you’ll be doing it, tee hee. Poor Scuby tries to crawl up on Mama’s legs cause the snow is way too deep for her. Enjoy your snow & have a very Merry Christmas!!
    Luv & Wirey Hugs,
    Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby
