MEANWHILE...

....back on the metaphorical farm, so to speak, we are in our full winter white. At the risk of stating the obvious, I must say, it is snowing a lot. Yes, still LOVE it. Yes, still gaga at how the world is transformed. Yes, still love the challenge of negotiating a life on ice. So the trick is to get outside EVERYDAY. Of course, with PonyGirl that is a given. My skinny, mexican mutt is really a snow dog. There is no hesitation on her part to get out there and just dive in. Once she figured out what x-country skis were, she became a great companion on outings. . That girl can run and basically swims through deep snow. A great workout for us both. We also usually pick up one or two of her friends to come with us. On this day it was her BFF, Koda. Embracing the winter opens up an enchanting world. Going to Mexico has nothing to do with disliking winter. Au contraire, I just don't want to miss 'the winter' in Mexico.

Hey there! Wanted to thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog today :) I love making blog buddies.

Your PonyGirl is definitely a snow dog! Great pictures to tell the story of her love of snow. What a dog!

That is so beautiful! Snow is amazing no matter what. After the snow stopped here in the city, the wind kept going and blowing more snow around. On my block, only my door steps and sidewalk alone had it's own second layer of snow after all the shoveling and such. It was a real treat.

I love the photo of Pony Girl in the snow. To look at her, knowing she came from Mexico and to see her standing in such snow makes my heart sing! What a great life for her!!!
I can't wait to see how she reacts to the upcoming travels!!!!

I'm thinking all mostly white dogs are actually polar pups, BIG snow lovers. Syd too dives through the snow and absolutely LOVES it and Chica, our Mexican pup is enjoying it too.

I,personally, LOVE the pix you posted....No wonder you cross country ski!!! GORGEOUS!!

Miss you, love you, wish I could go to Mexican winter with you.... One day again soon. xoxoxo

Ho Ho Jo Jo
