Hello friends! Today the folks took Hootie and me up to *Prescott to play in the snow. We went to meet up with the Dales & Friends group that I belong to but Mommy was driving and somehow missed the turn off. Well, we went about 10 miles further than we needed to go, but ended up at a much higher elevation where there was a ton of snow. In fact, we went as far as our 4wheel drive Subaru would take us. We just stopped the car on the road (there was no one else for miles around) and got out and walked around. The snow was deep, but had a crust over the top so we were like wonder dogs---walking on top of the snow! Occasionally Mommy or Daddy would break through then be up to their knees in snow. Funny! So, the photos on this post are from our misguided adventure before we found our Dales & Friends group.
These first photos are Dad telling me to #1 - SIT, then #2 - SHAKE, but he forgot to tell me which paw he wanted me to shake with!! So he asked me again and I switched paws (I am ambidextrous) and that is photo #3. I entered that in the Mango Minster sanctioned Training Competition. (Click here to get to Niamh's blog to learn more.) I actually do a mean "bang bang" but Mommy has never taken a photo of me doing it. Maybe next year. Speaking of Mango Minster, don't forget to vote. The Cat-Dog category has already been voted on, but there are several others still to come. Today is the hound competition. You can get there by clicking on the Mango Minster Logo on our sidebar. Hootie and I are entered in the Terriers competition if you would like to vote for (ME) either one of us (ME).
It turned out that Dales & Friends were at a place much easier to access but we did get with them and played for about an hour. We'll post some meetup pictures later on.
Hope your weekend has been as fun as ours.

*Prescott, Arizona is about 100 miles north of Phoenix and as you can see, has a much different climate than Phx.
