What Did You Do On the Last Day Of Summer?

You'll never guess what I did on the last day of summer!!! I went in search of snow with my mom and dad!!! Crazy huh? The craziest part was....WE FOUND IT!!!!!! We got in my truck and drove on a road called Shelf Road all the way to a town called Cripple Creek and then took the regular highway home. The reason Shelf Road is called that is, that's pretty much what it is. It's a 1-lane, 2-way road with some pull offs for people to pull off on if there's another car coming. We didn't get to get out and play in the snow because it was too dangerous on that road and since we were in the truck and riding up in the cab, Mom didn't want mud all over her. I thought about trying to get some and ship it to all my husky friends, but then I realized I have a bunch of husky friends and Mom said by the time the snow got to some of them, it would just be a wet envelope, so Mom took some pictures and said I can show them to everybody and tell my husky friends that the snow is coming!
Here are some pictures that Mom took of the snow:




There wasn't a bunch of snow, but enough the town of Cripple Creek had to plow their roads!

Along the road we saw some cow dogs and I really wanted to get out and chase them or at least hang out the window and bark at them, but Dad said no. Mom said, "OUCH!!!! STOP!!! OWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!" Weird thing to say.....unless you have a little dachshund going crazy on your head, neck, arms, shoulders and lap to try to get at the cow dogs. Sasha REALLY wanted to get them! There were no pictures of all of this because Mom was a little busy trying to protect herself and couldn't juggle the camera, too.

That morning I had run around crazy because it was so nice and cool outside. I had a lot of fun running really fast at Mom and then veering off at the very last second. I love that game! I know Mom loves that game too by the amount of screaming she does in the 3 seconds before I veer off. I was so tired from all that playing and the excitement of the drive, I fell asleep on Mom's lap. Sleeping in the front seat of an old Jeep truck with 2 human adults and 2 dogs isn't exactly comfortable, but I didn't care because I was so tired. Mom was able to get a picture - sort of. Nice picture of the collar Huskee & Hershey sent me, isn't it?

Today it's cool again, but Dad has to work and Mom has to do laundry so I'm spending all day warming up the couch. It's a job I do very well.

Hope you enjoy the pictures and the update from me finally! Mom says she promises to help me update you on what I've been up to while I haven't been posting.

Oh sweet Kaos (and Sasha), you are finally back!! Glad that the collar fits you nicely and it really stands out against your fur.

Hey if you find more snow and intends to send them to your Husky friends, don't forget about your non-Husky friend Huskee ok? I could do with some of those white stuff.. :)

(((hugs to all.. especially your mom)))

Hello Lady Kaos!

So nice to read about your snow adventure!

Yes, we are getting near to the last day of summer here too. We saw the wild geese flying south yesterday, and my Jeannie says the last rose of summer has just bloomed in the pot on the terrace ;0(

Your day sounded great fun and thank you for sharing your snow adventures!

We can see the hills from our house here, and there is no snow on them yet, but once there is, we know it is time to start collecting snow for our Husky Friends!!

Whose Jeannie is very late with all her blogging too, so no worries tell your Mama!

Hi
Love your snow pictures. They like seeing a little snow on the divide even if it all melts soon. My humans have shifted into snow mode too. I don't know why it's so exciting. It happens every year.

Arrow loves those you can't catch me games.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Your new collar looks beautiful on you, Kaos!

Love ya lots

Since your Mom loves flowers and plants to much could you ask her to take some pictures of you, Sasha and Gunnnar so I can feature you guys on one of my doggie or cat posts.
