Snow Treat

07 Dec

Bongo Eating SnowWe still have a little snow left in our yard – I hope it never goes completely away, because it’s a real treat. Every time I go outside I eat some of it. Sometimes I even bug my person to let me outside just so I can eat it.

My person thinks I’ve got to go out for other reasons but I don’t. It’s fun to go out and eat more of that crunchy, cold, white stuff. It’s even better now than when it first showed up because it’s frozen. Harder than snow, but not as hard as ice. Perfect.

I can never get enough of it though. I eat a little bit and my person tells me I’ve had enough cold stuff and it will make my insides turn all shivery. I don’t know why that matters. I can always go in the house and warm up again, but she grabs me by the collar and pulls me away from my special treat.

At least I can grab a little more snow on the stairs on the way in. I’m sure glad my person doesn’t have a shovel.

    Bongo, you are too cute. I’m glad you are getting lots of time in the leftover snow! Harley likes to pretend he needs to go outside for one purpose only: to hunt lizards. Of course, when we get to Colorado, I have a feeling he’s going to be acting just like you– crazy for snow 🙂

      DeannaMelanie, I hope Harley has great fun in the snow. We have lizards here too, but they don’t often come into my yard. They’re on my trails though.

    Sweet Bongo, I like it that you enjoy the snow so much! But don’t you think that there is better stuff to eat than snow??? You really should come to Brussels and we will transform you into a gastronomical dog 🙂

      Sweet Kitten, I think I would get fat if I went to Brussels. Your food looks so good.

    I have never tried eating snow, although I do love to leap in it. I’ll have to taste it next time I go to the mountains.

      Lola, eating snow is kind of like eating ice cubes – but softer.

    I fully understand your compulsion Bongo. I love to eat it too! 🙂

      Bassa, I’m glad somebody understands me, although my person says when she was a girl her mom would mix sugar and flavoring into snow to make snow ice cream. I’ve tried to get my person to do that for me but she won’t.

    Hello Bongo sweet boy,You seem to be having a good day eating the cold white stuff. Tis true that it will not do your little tummy much good even though it tastes lovely. and crunchy.
    When it snows in our garden my Guido dog, he is the old deaf fella, he likes to stick his nose in it and then he has a lovely roll. As he has a thick coat , like yours, i expect it feels great…

    love from Me

      Patreciau, I haven’t tried rolling in the snow like Guido. Next time it snows I think I’m going to have to do that.

    I understand this so well!!! I want some …. soon, please.

    • Bongo

      B0ng0, I would send some snow your way, but mine’s almost gone now.

      Dianda, snow’s pretty good. You ought to try it. Just don’t eat the yellow stuff.

    Mica and Lexie love to eat snow too, they run out and eat and eat. Mica likes to stick her nose in and throw snow up in the air. they are still waiting for their first snow.

    • Bongo

      December 7, 2011 at 12:35 pm

      Mica and Lexie, I think we’d have a great time in the snow together.

    In Alaska that and the water used to cook our food is all there is. Even when working pulling the sled you grab a mouthfull of snow on the run.

    • Bongo

      December 7, 2011 at 2:33 pm

      Pablo, that must be pretty cool pulling a sled in Alaska – too much work for me though.

    I’m happy for you, Bongo, this love of snow. I like it, too, until it gets up to my knee and is heavier to shovel. Then? Not so much.

    • Bongo

      December 7, 2011 at 2:35 pm

      Leslie, our snow never gets that deep here and most of the time it’s gone the next day – so it’s fun to have around while it’s here.

    Snow-cones! (minus the cups and the flavoring). I’m glad you’re enjoying the snow, Bongo. I wish it snowed where I am instead of endless rains.

    • Bongo

      December 7, 2011 at 4:04 pm

      Nel, my person says it’s probably good I don’t get the cups and the flavoring too. I’d probably eat the cups – or at least chew them up into little bits.

    Madam Lasagna is impressed that you worked out the false alarm scenario for getting a chance to eat more snow. Should you get more snow, that technique works well for getting outside to cool off a hot belly or make snow angels too. The humans never completely catch on.

    • Bongo

      December 7, 2011 at 5:45 pm

      I gotta thank Madam Lasagna for the tips. I think we’re going to be good buddies.

    I think you would like Slushies. They are harder than snow but not as hard as ice and they have great flavors.

    • Bongo

      December 7, 2011 at 9:31 pm

      Patricia, slushies sound wonderful. I wonder if I could get my person to bring me one.

    Wonderbutt is perfectly happy chewing on his pillows and carpeting, thank you very much. Bongo, you need a little more spice in your life!

    • Bongo

      December 7, 2011 at 9:34 pm

      Wonderbutt’s person, I think the snow goes down better. I’ll have to talk to Wonderbutt about that. A couple of my friends have suggested snow cones or slushies though. I’m working on my person to get me some.

    Bongo, you should come out here and teach a class on Snow Eatin 101 to my Great Pyrenees…he just likes to sleep around in the snow. 🙂

    • Bongo

      December 8, 2011 at 12:03 am

      Sunshine, that would be fun to do – but I bet I could teach that class online.

    Haha, that snow is a tasty treat. Too bad we don’t have any around here right now!

    • Bongo

      December 8, 2011 at 9:25 am

      Brown Dawgs, my snow is almost gone – but I’m still managing to find a little when I go outside.

    OMD! I never taste snow but the pic of you eating snow makes me want it!!! Oh crunchy one is much tastier? Then we should wait till next day probably? Wow I’ll try if we have snow this year! 🙂

    • Bongo

      December 8, 2011 at 9:27 am

      Kevin, I hope you get some snow this year so you can try it. Most of the time our snow melts right away, but this time it stayed cold so the snow stuck around and got crunchy. Mmmm good.

    LOL… it is fun to watch dogs in the snow! I can see you running around eating the snow!! Just dont eat the yellow stuff.. LOL

    God Bless You!

      Chuck and the Collies, my person tells me I shouldn’t eat the yellow stuff too. What is it with that?

      • colliesofthemeadow

        December 11, 2011 at 3:41 pm

        LOL! It is the color snow turns when a dog does his duty on the snow instead of a fire hydrant or tree! LOL

        December 11, 2011 at 4:40 pm

        Oh, now I get it.

    i wonder if i will like snow?

    • Bongo

      December 8, 2011 at 6:15 pm

      Jimmie Chew, my person says she used to have some cats that liked snow. I hope you like it because it’s a lot of fun to play in.

    Your story makes me think of snow ice cream. I want some!

    • Bongo

      December 8, 2011 at 6:22 pm

      Sandra, I’ve been trying to talk my person into making me some snow ice cream ever since she told me about it, but she won’t do it.

    Well, sweet Bongo we think we have you all figured out…since you love the snow so much we figure you are eating a lot of it so you have to go out and do business more often. That way you get to play and enjoy the snow all the more. Keep having fun and enjoying that snow. Hugs and nose kisses

    • Bongo

      December 9, 2011 at 8:41 am

      Chancy and Mumsy, it’s kind of fun to trick my person into letting me out more often so I can eat snow. Hugs and nose kisses back

    Hey, I eat snow too!

      December 9, 2011 at 7:13 pm

      MovieBlogger, we could have a snow crunching party!
