Photo Finish Friday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats! It's me - Zim! I'm here with Ammy, ready to get started on Photo Finish Friday. These pictures were taken a couple days ago - before the latest round of snow and sub-zero temps hit. Ready?

So there I was, enjoying the day...

...just watching the traffic not roll by...

Hey, the road's clear... where is everyone!?!

... when Mom said we should take advantage of clear skies and temps in the teens (around 12 below, for those of you who put a "C" after your temperature) and go on a walk! She decided Ammy and I should go first!

We headed up into the undeveloped area, where the snow was still fluffy. Here I am, checking everything out.

And here's Ammy:

She looks like she's just having fun out on a casual walk, doesn't she? Don't let that innocent demeanor fool you! She's ALWAYS on the job!

Alert! Alert!

And then we launched into action!

Can you tell who's who? You can? Did the leashes give it away? Oh well.

Here's Am, heading home. Can you see how high the snow is?

I didn't walk on the sidewalk like Ammy and Mom, I was up in that snow on the right.

Seriously, isn't that where you'd rather be?

Hope you enjoyed Photo Finish Friday!

Play bows,


  1. oh how exciting! Well your snow and low temps are exciting, but I am also excited 'cos I am first to c c c c comment. Yay!

    I would be in the snow Zim - that is the rightful place of any snow lovin' dog.

    oooooh just thought of a tune then with that last sentence. You can hum it to your Mama, see if it gets on her nerves....oooops, sorry no, I meant to bark "mind".

    All day.....

    "Snow Lovin Man" no sorry, I meant "Home Lovin Man" - Andy Williams......"the captain said, thank god we're home we've drank the barrel dry.....da de da de dah"

    I think the snow has addled my brain to be honest!

  2. On the face buried in the snow pictures you should have colored out the leashed in an editing program and let us try figuring it out LOL! That would have been fun and incredibly difficult! I loved the pictures.

  3. Why, of course, we would rather be walking in the snow and not on the cleaned sidewalk. Puh-lease.

  4. Oh Man!!! We just so wish we had snow! Zim, would love to be on top of that pile of fluffy stuff with you!!! And love the pics of both of you with your heads exploring creatures living under snow heheh! Again, super shots!
    Hugs xo

  5. Looks like you guys had a great time on your walk. There SO much ice under the snow we got, that Moms can't stand up outside!!!

    Woofs and Kisses!

  6. Love the pictures and especially the ones of you in the snow head first!!! I bet it is cold there..it's only 16 here with high winds..again. Hollydog went outside briefly and came back inside after 10 minutes!! Lots of love!!! Debbie and Hollydog

  7. I will take the snow anytime, Zim, and we are gonna have maybe two or three more days of this 20 below zero stuff and then its gonna warm up into the 20 aboves!!! Whoooo-weee will I ever be happy for that. We can play outside and go walkies again!


  8. That is a lot of snow! Do you have to high-step to make it through?


  9. Great pics of you guys in the snow!
    Does your mom wear a silly hat in the cold?
    We are enjoying the snow but hate meeting people as our mum looks ridiculous!
    She says she has never felt so cold but you are having such fun too......must be a human thing!
    love and kisses
