Fun in the Snow and 8 Things We Love

Hello all our furry friends, Eva here. Well, yesterday we got another 4 or 5 inches of snow. We haven't had this much snow this early in the year in my life! OK, I'm only almost 4 years old, but according to dad, this is the most snow we've had this early in quite a few years. I know that we have only posted about the snow the last few days, but we love it so!! Since I'm reporting today, here's a picture of me being cute in the snow.
OK, I guess I can include one of Tasha, too. Here she is telling dad she wants to play with her basketball. She always seems to get her way!
Sometimes I have to tell Tasha that I want to wrestle. Here I am trying to convince her that it would be fun! We didn't feel like staying out very long today because it was only about 7 degrees F (-14 degrees C.). Our paws got cold really fast. Dad knows that when I start holding my paws up and Tasha lays down, its time to go back into the house.
Here is what comes out from between the pads of our paws when we come in. Sometimes its more and sometimes its less. Those snow balls can make our feets really cold!

We were tagged by MayaMarie to tell 8 thing that we love about ourselves. We are going to do 4 things for me and 4 things for Tasha. I'll go first.

1. I love that I am the greatest snuggle puppy in the world. They say that Belgian Tervurens are Velcro dogs, which means they love to stick to their humans. I prove that!!
2. I love that I can get dad to play ball with me just by dropping my ball at his feet. He's sooo easy!
3. I love my long, luxurious fur. I get complements on it all the time.
4. I love to be dad's sleep aid. As soon as he goes to bed (which is usually a few hours before momma) I have to be there to make sure that he gets to sleep. Plus I get lots of petting. At least for a little while.
Hi all, Tasha here . These are the things I love about myself. I could list more but this is a good start.
1. I love that I love to eat! I just love food. I am called the Great Consumer around here as well as the Scavenger. I'm always looking for anything edible that may have fallen on the floor.
2. Like Eva, I love my furry coat. It always gets me lots of pets and scratches. Anything that gets me more attention is a very good thing.
3. I love that I like to go for rides. Whenever we go to the truck, it always means fun! Except when I end up at the V-E-T. That's never good.
4. I love that I can tell time. I always know when it is 8:00 p.m. because that means its time to go outside. Daylight saving time goofs me up for a little while, but I think it does the same to some humans around here. I also know when its time to get dad up for work. Even if its on the weekends when he doesn't have to go to work. He thanks me every time I wake him up!
Eva back here again. We heard on the news that we might get another 2 to 4 inches of snow tomorrow. We're just loving this, but dad said he's getting tired of shoveling snow already. Poor dad. Momma said that she got most of our Holiday cards in the mail today! About time that got done. She also said that she's going to get the e-mail cards out soon, too. We'll believe it when we see it. Yap at you soon! Belly Rubs, Eva.

So much snow! You should share some. Ha, ha.

I am so jealous of your snow! We got a dusting, but it was mostly ice. We might get some more by the weekend, but once again, might be ice.

Thanks for your well wishes for our community tragedy. I know you know how it feels to have terrible things happen to innocent people.

Woo grrrls are SO lucky! We also love everything about you, and we love that you get to play in the fun fluffy snow.
We finally got all our envelopes ready, they're going in the mail tomorrow, yippee! Then like your mom, the humom still has to send the email ones. She's having problems with that too, the program she designed our cards on requires that its viewer goes with the card, and it's an exe program, lots of pups em servers are blocking them. But she thinks she figured out how to get round it cause Holly got one yesterday. That was an accident cause she's on the snail mail list, so she's gonna get a physical one too, howrooroo.
Christmas kisses,
Bama & the RHP

Hey you mentioned your gorgeous fur. Good one.

Me and Tasha can play time-telling together and go driving cos I so love those things too.

Mistress says -14 is freezing and very cold. She used to get balls of snow from some of her other dogs feet but it was never that cold. Brrr.

I hope you get some nice warm sunshine soon or I am not coming to see you. Even if I get a cruise ticket from Santa.

Love Pippa xx

Hi Tasha and Eva-
We are glad that you have snow and that you like it. You can KEEP it!!! Please.
We are skinny and practically nekked, so the young 'uns like to do zoomies in the Evil White Stuff for a while, but it makes our feet and our bones hurt.
But we don't have your built in coats.
nice to meet you-

Hi Tasha and Eva! More snow, eh? Oh boy, you have no idea how jealous I am! You're all are so lucky! (Except for your poor dad, shoveling all that snow. It's no wonder he's tired of it already.)

Is it really -14 Celsius? Brrrr! Now that's cold! But at least it means the snow will stick around longer, so that will be fun! I wish our snow didn't all melt the day after we got it. Hopefully we'll get more soon.

I enjoyed reading the things you both love about yourselves. Lizzy says she wishes she could pet your soft, beautiful fur.

I think you're on my Christmas card list. I haven't sent any cards to you yet, but Lizzy is gonna work on it today. We're looking forward to receiving a card from you!

Oh I wish we could have that much snow! We got a dusting yesterday and had some fun with that but we're waiting for the serious stuff! Can you mail some to us?
