A Prescott Arizona Snow Day

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.

Usually it is never nice to get lost - but that looked like a perfect spot! What a lot of snow - we have rain and more rain here - we would rather have snow!

I see you two also had a snowy weekend. What a beautiful place, adorned by such a splendidly outfitted pair!
You are so lucky that you get to be driven around in a 4WD. You can't imagine the places Gail tries to take me in the Mini!
Cheers! H.

I can not believe you go looking for snow,I must admit though it does look lovely and you have sun to. It looks very dry snow, I might like that, but I think I will just lie by the fire and look at you photos.

Great photos, Baby R, but I can't believe you guys get asked to sit in the snow. Frozen bum!

BRUTUS said...

Sorry you got lost on the way to your meetup, but what a great place to find yourself lost!! You are quite brave to sit so long with your patootie in the snow!! I'm afraid I might have frozen to that spot, and will never sit on snow just in case!!

Happy Birthday Baby Rocket Dog! Hope you have lots of pressies and treats.
That walk in the snow looks wonderful (and I LOVE yours and Hooties coats). You do a great SHAKE. Finni can do that but I can't - I'm too busy Mummy says, hehe.
Have a lovely Day!

You and your brother have such lovely coats! I so admire a girl with a sense of fashion!

I wanted to drop in and thank you for donating the prize from Mango Minster! This is the first year I've participated and it has been great fun!

Wow! What a great detour ... intentional or not! The air was crystal clear and the light was beautiful! So were the shadows!!! It all sure made the two of you shine like best dressed, most talented stars. We loved visiting this place with you and are happy you took advantage of the opportunity created by the missed turn. Way to go Moma!

Ciao miei amici!

Buon compleanno, Baby! You look so beautiful in your outfit, and I, Lucia, am so very impressed with your paw-shaking talents!

It looks like you, Hootie and your mama and papa had a good time on the way to the meetup; I can't wait to see the photos of the meetup, itself!

Tanti baci!

That lost in the snow place looks terrific. It looks like crisp fresh AIRE. We'd kill for a bit of that this week. It is STINKIN' hot!
Love your entry - you are one clever black and tanian. If its's still open we will vote for you!

You guys are so lucky to have romped about in the snow. Looks like fun! Do you ever drive out to San Diego? We could go to the beach together!

Wags and kisses,
