What a Way To Start the Week!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim!  We knew it was coming!  Dave and I knew!  We could smell it in the air yesterday - SNOW!  We could hardly wait - but Mom said we'd have to.  It was coming over night, and it would be there waiting for us in the morning.  Oh, pup!  Isn't that great?!?  Just like toys on Christmas morning!  Without further ado ... here I am at 0400 this morning:

"C'mon, Mom!  It's four o'clock and I'm ready to rock!"

Once we got past where the lights on the front of the house helped the camera, we had to rely strictly on the power of the iPhone:

Looks like night vision goggles (NVGs), doesn't it? Mom lightened it in PhotoShop. She forgot to turn the flash on. She remembered for this one:

"Snow!  Lovely, fluffy snow!"

Oddly, Mom didn't seem as excited as I was, and wanted to go right back in after I did my business. Something about snow in her slippers ... 4 a.m. ... blah, blah, and blah.  Whatever.

"Be back soon, snow!  Don't go anywhere!"

It was still coming down really well, as you might be able to see, so I knew I'd have even more fun later!

I gave Mom a chance to get her feet warm, then at 0500 hours, Davy got up and wanted out. Here's what he woke to:

Hmm. The snow really wasn't purple (though K-State fans here probably would think that's a great idea!) - Mom tried lightening the photo up and "fixing" it in PhotoShop and ... let's just say the color's a bit off. (Note to Dave, Guide Dog for the the Color Blind: the Studio isn't the only place where Mom needs your help!)

So ... that's how our Monday started!  What fun!  It's gotten real slippery out there, though, due to a freezing drizzle that's now falling, so we don't have pix of us on our walks or playing out there.  Safety first! and all that!  Mom needed to concentrate on staying upright, not trying to shoot photos!  We'll try for some later on!

We hope your Monday has been as fun as ours so far!

Play bows,
Zim
