IN THE FIELD: Nap time


Another winter storm passed through the region yesterday and last night. With it came fluffy powdery snow, very cold temperatures and bitter wind chills of -17.

“Ya know…it’s hard to play and very tiring with ten inches of snow on the ground. We sure are glad our humans shoveled the snow in the back yard. Bet they are ready for a nap too!”

    Yea winter pretty much has defeated me this year we just went under a wind chill warning tonight..yippie !! Love the warm feel in the image !!

      It’s been a tough winter…so far. There’s more to come I’m thinking. This is their favorite spot in the winter…they stay there as long as the sunlight does.

    Wow! They have it sooooooooooo rough 😉

    • January 22, 2014 at 3:41 pm

      Yeah…I’d like to come back to this world as one of my pups LOL.

      • January 22, 2014 at 3:45 pm

        But only if you two were taking care of you. Wait? Doesn’t that cross timelines and cause time to blow up or something? lol

      • January 22, 2014 at 3:53 pm

        I think it does…one can not go back to the future or the past, and see oneself…it warps the time continuum and then there is big trouble.

      • January 22, 2014 at 3:54 pm

        There must be away around all that stuff…

  3. January 22, 2014 at 3:24 pm

    Cute…I am dog-sitting two presently. Nothing like a sunbeam.

    • January 22, 2014 at 3:43 pm

      It’s a dog’s life…hey new peoples to hang with! Neato! They know where every sunbeam comes into the house and at what time of day!

      • January 22, 2014 at 3:58 pm

        Oh yes, and when it is supper time, although they try to push that forward a bit. (chuckling)

      • January 22, 2014 at 4:07 pm

        Yes they are good time keepers…at 4:45pm is when the staring begins here.

    Too cute! They might have to fight you humans for that spot. Are those sliding doors in the corner that can cover the patio doors?

    • January 23, 2014 at 8:47 am

      Yeah, they are our “best buds” …it is the coziest spot in the house. Those are sliding panels I built and are hung from pocket door hardware to cover the sliding glass door at night. Good eye John!

        Thanks for your e-mailed “Tool Time” explanation!

    That looks so comfortable! My dog had the luxury of her dog bed in a sunbeam this afternoon while I worked at my desk. They are so lucky!

    • January 23, 2014 at 8:49 am

      It’s a dog’s life for sure. It’s fun to watch them move from sunbeam to sunbeam throughout the course of the day. Their dog beds…we call the woolies since they were made by Woolrich…are their favorite spots…unless it’s hot out , then the tile floor is the best.

    Now, those guys really know how to spend a frigid winter day! I love this photo!

    • January 23, 2014 at 8:50 am

      They sure do have the right idea…napping in the sun after playtime in the snow!

  7. January 23, 2014 at 4:30 am

    It is a tough life for a dog…..but spare a thought for ‘walkies’ in the snow with such short legs.

    • January 23, 2014 at 8:52 am

      We Cairns think we are bigger than we actually are…deep snow is hard to walk in. It’s been too cold for walkies the last couple of days…it made it to 12 yesterday…it’s 2 now!

      • January 23, 2014 at 9:11 am

        So far we have missed out on the snow this winter, in fact we had our coldest day earlier this week -2c and that is about the only frost we have had…..not that Buster our Jack Russell cross is complaining, after the first mad dash around in the snow he usually heads back indoors!

  8. January 23, 2014 at 4:44 am

    Ten inches of snow, and -17 degrees – I hope spring comes soon! Those two little pups have got the right idea!

    • January 23, 2014 at 8:54 am

      Spring is looking mighty fine right about now. I can’t wait to build the gardens! It’s funny how they look for the sunbeams coming in the house…they change position as the sun moves.

  9. January 23, 2014 at 5:13 am

    Lovely, they are so lovely… Winter seems going hard this year. Thank you dear David, have a nice day, love, nia

    • January 23, 2014 at 8:55 am

      They sure are cuties and they are best friends…uncle and niece actually. It has been a cold winter so far, but we have been due for a real winter for a few years now.

  10. January 24, 2014 at 3:20 am

    awww they are soooo cute, laying in the sunshine 🙂 Great picture, love the light coming through the window, looks warm and cosy 🙂

    • January 24, 2014 at 8:51 am

      Yeah…our little family. They are cute little buggers and they make us laugh with their antics. They love to chase each other around the house. It’s too funny! They do love to be in the sun!

  11. January 24, 2014 at 3:13 pm

    So cute! They have chosen the perfect place 🙂

    • January 25, 2014 at 11:07 am

      “We’re snow puppies and we are thawing out in our chosen sunny spot!”

  12. January 25, 2014 at 7:36 am

    Such a warm capture in this bitter cold, I can feel their soft warm fur! 🙂

    • January 25, 2014 at 11:09 am

      They sure are cozy…I love to snuggle up to them, but they only tolerate that for a few minutes. Unless of course they want to be snuggled. Then you have to pet them and scratch their backs for what seems like hours LOL.

  13. January 26, 2014 at 4:33 pm

    Oh wow that is a very cute photograph!

    • January 27, 2014 at 2:59 pm

      Thanks MD, they have the right idea for sure!

    Life is good!

    • January 29, 2014 at 8:29 am

      Ahh yes…it’s hard to get anything done around here when I see those pups snoozing. I just want to curl up alongside them LOL.
