Winter cold

It has been a few weeks since I posted..illness hit our household but this time the humans fell.  I had a bad cold one weekend being completely down for the count..and then Jason came down with a mild (but still rough) case of Shingles. 
But luckily, our new couch arrived right before it was needed for rest and recovery.  Well..if I could find a spot for rest and recovery that is...
 There was never a shortage of snugglers however..we had 11 total this weekend
I finally felt like being up and around.  We went outside for a little play.  We are watching Petey and Lulu
 Petey is pretty cute
And then..the 60 degree weather decided to change and after a potty break Shiloh seemed to have come down with a bad case of dandruff?
 What a beautiful morning.
Since the temperatures were supposed to be in the 40s this day..we hurried outside in the morning to play.  This did mean the light was not ideal..so I am not happy with my photos. But now it is a slushy mess outside so this will have do!
 Cali loves the snow..as we have proven in past 'snowier' winters.  She tries to goad Petey in to a race
 I don't think it worked
 Now she tries to goad ME in to a race..this is what I refer to as Crazy Cali

 Petey enjoys playing in the snow.  I threw a snowball which he did actually try to fetch..
 He did master the art of running in the snow when you are little.
 Such a handsome boy..
 And we are watching Smokey.  I don't have many good photos of him, but he tried to pose a bit this morning
 The snow will be gone in a few hours and it is supposed to be in the upper 60s by the end of the week, so hopefully this is the end of winter's cold snaps...outside and in humans.

The couch is awesome! Perfect for the hounds. ;-) Glad you got a little snow for everyone to play in.

Cool couch. Sucks you guys were sick. Hopefully all better for your birthday outing this weekend. That Petey sure is cute.

Agree, the couch is awesome. If it's like it is at my house, we would be sitting on the floor!

A couple of weeks ago we ran out to get pictures during our only measurable snowfall, too! It's been a crazy winter. Your pictures of the dogs are fantastic! I'm glad you're feeling better, too.

Petey is adorable! Our snow was gone before I got ANY pics of the dogs! Glad you are feeling better, I had it pretty bad for a while too!
