I really love going into the wash on my trails. It has the best smells and it’s full of quail to chase. Well, I wish I could chase them. They’re always running away through the bushes long before I ever get near them.
The wash isn’t really a trail, but it does have trails leading down into it. One of those trails, my favorite, my person usually won’t let me use. Sometimes when the ground is moist and soft she lets me go down it but otherwise she says it’s got too many loose rocks for how steep it is. Just because I jumped all over her the one time she did slip. I thought she just got on the ground so we could wrestle. How was I to know?
But there’s another trail into the wash a little ways past that one. It’s not so steep so my person lets me use that one most of the time. Sometimes when it’s been raining a lot she doesn’t want to go into the wash at all. And that’s the most fun time, too. I love splashing in all those puddles. My person just doesn’t know how to have fun.
Today I found a new trail into the wash. And it takes me into the wash even earlier than those other trails.
And guess what. That upper part of the wash has some special surprises in it. Things that must get washed out before they get further down the wash.
Today I found something really special.
The only patch of snow left anywhere on my trails. Time for a treat!

FleaByte, I hope we get more snow soon. I think I ate all of it that was left.

Patrecia, a wash is something that is usually dry but has water running through it when we get a lot of rain or snowmelt. It’s a desert kind of thing.

It looks like bumpy fan!!!!!
[how was the snow? Taste good?]

Marina, that snow was wonderful. Especially since it was an unexpected find. I would have eaten it all, but my person made me leave after a few bites.

Yay, snow is the best:-)

Misaki, we’ve only had a tiny bit of snow this year and I think I ate the last of it. I hope we get some more soon.

Benny & Lily, you’ll have to come hang out in my wash with me sometime. We’d have great fun.

Good job tracking down that snow patch, B. And all without even wearing your detective hat! That is about how much snow is left around here, too. Tomorrow, rain will wash it away.
Love and licks,

Cupcake, I think what I didn’t eat of that snow patch has probably melted by now. Today was a really nice day, but we might get some more snow on Wednesday.

Mollie and Alfie, I think we might get more snow tomorrow. I’m really excited because I ate all that little bit of snow I found.

Why else would she get on the grouond if not to wrestle??
February 19, 2013 at 10:58 pm
Dalton, I can’t think of another reason, but my person wouldn’t go for it.

Bongo, grown ups just don’t know how to play anymore… that’s what life is, isn’t it?
February 19, 2013 at 10:59 pm
Little Binky, around here grown ups and cats don’t know how to play. Scratchy won’t wrestle with me either.

We had a little snow today but it was not enough to play with…*sigh* You’re lucky to find some of the snow that you can still taste! You wash seems to have full of adventurous things! 🙂
February 19, 2013 at 11:02 pm
Kevin, we’re supposed to get snow tomorrow so I’m really hoping it will be enough to play in. We’ve only had little bits of snow so far this year. If we get a lot I’ll send you some so you can play in it too.
February 19, 2013 at 10:19 am
Yay Snow!! I so wish it would snow here too!!
I hope you’re having a fun day,
Your pal Snoopy 🙂
February 19, 2013 at 11:03 pm
Snoopy, I think we might get more snow tomorrow. Should I send some your way?
February 19, 2013 at 12:04 pm
Woo-whoo! A snow treat! Hard to decide whether to pounce on it with all paws or give it a nose over.
February 19, 2013 at 11:10 pm
Karen, I would have quietly eaten it all if my person hadn’t made me leave before I could finish.
