Snow for a Snow Dog

21 Feb

Snow Covered YuccaIt snowed today. Almost all day. It finally stuck on the trees and bushes, but we never got much on the ground.

My person checked on her friends on Facebook and you know what she discovered? Her friends that live south of Tucson built a snowman today. And her my friends that live a few miles from us and at a much lower elevation – what’s that word mean again, person? – they live down the hill from us, built a snowman today.

I’m not asking for a snowman, but a snow dog would be nice. But we don’t even have enough snow on the ground to do that.

I had to get my snow treats off the trees today.

I guess I shouldn’t complain about that. Those treats were at the perfect level. I didn’t have to bend over.

Bongo on a red trail in snow

Not enough snow for a snow dog here either. Maybe I could mix some mud into the snow. A red and white snow dog might look pretty cool.

Bongo on a rock with snow and puddles in the distance

Even my wash is looking pretty sad. I think there’s more puddles than snow down here.

And now it’s not even snowing any more. How am I ever going to build a snow dog if the snow stops coming down?

Thunder Mountain in snow

Hey! I think I just figured out what happened to all the snow. It got stuck on top of those big rocks.

I wonder how I could get those rocks to shake around a bit and send some of that snow flying this way.

      I’m a pointer mix. I’m not sure what all that mix is.

    I think that the mix of mud and snow is a great idea, Bongo!!! Why not! You can make the blushing snow dog!!!!

      Marina, I like that. Blushing snow dog. I’m heading out to work on that dog right now.

    That snow has a long way to go, before you can build anything. Look on the bright side – at least it can’t reach up to your belly. Snow on the belly scares me!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, that would be a lot of snow for me. I think it came close with one storm we had last April, but it’s pretty rare here. This winter we haven’t even had enough snow to cover me feet.

      Thanks Dogmatized. Snow is great fun. I just wish it would stay on the ground a little more. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    It sure is beautiful out there with all that snow! Thanks for sharing your pics!

      Thanks Jackie. I’m hoping we get enough to play in today, but so far it’s still not sticking on the ground.

      Benny & Lily, my person thinks it’s really beautiful when it snows here. I’m still waiting for enough to play in.

    I saw a movie on TV at Christmas called The Snowman and the Snowdog. Perhaps you should ask your person to get it for you.

    • Bongo

      February 21, 2013 at 2:46 pm

      Stazjia, thanks for the recommendation. I’ll get on my person right now. I stopped by your site and read some of your dog poems. Sometimes I write dog poems too. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Well look at that Bongo – not a bad start, not bad at all. I think you have enough to make some snowballs though. Those could be fun to throw at your person…just sayin’

    • Bongo

      February 21, 2013 at 2:48 pm

      Diana and Lola, it’s snowing some more – but still not sticking on the ground. I think I’ll go out and get loaded with snow and then shake it off on my person. Do you still have lots of snow to play in?

      • dianeskitchentable

        February 21, 2013 at 3:04 pm

        Oh we still have plenty of snow to have all kinds of fun in AND we could get another foot of it this Sat/Sun! More fun, yes?

      • Bongo

        February 21, 2013 at 4:35 pm

        Lola, I’m so jealous. My snow is still only sticking to the trees and bushes. It’s good to eat, but not much to play in. My person says she’s praying for all the people though that forgot how to play in snow but still have to get around in it.

    Very cute, that last image is amazing, it almost looks like it was taken on another planet.

      Thanks Leanne. Some people think that here in Sedona we are on another planet – complete with aliens. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Wow! I love the way the snow looks speckled over the red rock. Very cool photos!

    • Bongo

      February 21, 2013 at 4:36 pm

      Thanks Donna. My person says its very beautiful here when it snows.

    It’s very pretty anyway Bongo, even if it’s not a lot. We enjoyed looking at it.

    • Bongo

      February 21, 2013 at 6:48 pm

      Bosun Dawg, that’s what my person says too. It’s pretty. I’d sure like something I can play in, but I am getting a lot of snow treats off the bushes.

    February 22, 2013 at 4:37 am

    Wow, snow treats , yeah !!
    But a snow dog looks complicated, doesn’t it ?

    Enjoy your snow, pal.

    Woos of love.

      Echo & Link, I gave up trying on the snow dog. My person wasn’t willing to get muddy with me – and for some reason she didn’t even want me to get muddy. But those snow treats were really good.

    It seems unfair that if its going to snow all day that you couldn’t get enough even for a snow dog!! Beautiful pictures 🙂

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2013 at 1:51 pm

      Thanks Lexie and Mica. I still can’t figure it out. How can my friends get enough snow to build a snowman and not me.

    Awwww, what a preternatural scenery! Beautiful!
    It would be wonderful if you had enough snow to make a snow-Irish setter!

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2013 at 1:52 pm

      Thanks Kolytyi. A snow Irish setter would have been cool. I’ve never even seen a real Irish setter around here. Seems strange because they’d fit right in to the colors here.

    I think that those amounts of snow makes the best artistic pictures! The contrast between the white snow and the red ground is breathtakingly beautiful!!! 🙂

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2013 at 1:53 pm

      Thanks Kevin. And at least I did get enough snow for treats.

    Bongo, wait for a few days and then you get more snow to make your snowdog 🙂

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2013 at 3:31 pm

      Angels Whisper, we have sunshine again. I don’t know when we’re going to get enough snow for a snow dog. But sunshine is good too.

    If the rocks start shaking that would be an earthquake. Definitely wouldn’t want that snow or no snow!

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2013 at 5:27 pm

      Patricia, I guess I can do without an earthquake. At least I still have snow treats.
