Winter Take 2

We had a small break from the bitter cold and snowy winter wonderland last week.  We had rain and warm temperatures and all the beautiful snow melted. Do you know what happens when a foot of snow melts with a torrential downpour? MUD! A lot of MUD!  Mud everywhere!  Do you know what doodles love???? You guessed it! MUD!  They love to become one with the mud and have a complete mud soaked spa experience.  I am quite convinced that our apricot doodles secretly wish they were chocolate doodles and just lie in wait for the chance to romp in the mud. I am always prepared for the endless parade of mud in early spring but a mudfest in early January is never appreciated. Mother Nature has been kind enough to blanket us with a beautiful snow-filled landscape once again.  We have had a nice little snow storm here with a bit more expected.  The muddy brown dingy world has all been cleansed with a bright white sparkly happiness.  When I woke up this morning I saw our magnolia tree's branches all dressed in white.  The backyard was so serene and peaceful in the glistening snow.  It was just breathtaking.  It looked especially wonderful considering I didn't have to drive in it today.  All the beauty just waited for me to come home. Tomorrow I plan on taking all new pictures of the puppies out in the white fluffy snow.  I should be able to get some really good shots.  They are getting SO cute. This week's pictures should be a lot easier than last week's where I had to keep them from getting all muddy for their photo shoot. As soon as I snapped a the puppy ran to find the biggest muddy soupy hole and then begged for more friends to come and play. Tomorrow they can tunnel and build a snow fort. Welcome back winter! I could just lie down and kiss the snowy ground!
I love you winter!
