Max is so helpful! He runs outside anytime we go out to plow the snow. He hangs around outside most of the time. There was enough snowfall last night that the first thing Peter had to do was plow. He uses the tractor we purchased from our sister & brother-in-law when they moved down south. This piece of machinery is the biggest blessing to us in the past few years. It makes a lot of the work done around here much easier on us.
But I wanted you to see this video that shows how helpful Max really is while Pete does the plowing during winter. I’m sure Pete appreciates his standing right in front of the blade where he can’t even see him. He even seems as though he is saying,
“Yep, I’m right here waiting on you Dad”.
“What! Do I have to move?”
He jumps out of the way at the last minute and runs alongside. Max is a crazy dog and we love him.
Here is what dogs having too much fun looks like. We were lucky to have family visit for a wedding and spend the day with us outside walking. In the front is Hilti our nephew’s black lab. Then curley Hurley our Retriever/Poodle mix in the middle. And lastly is Max the tricolor Swiss Mountain Dog/Pitt in the rear.
We got about 4″ of snow last night and it looks like a white sparkly fairyland outside this morning. It is gorgeous. It is not heavy snow like we have had in the past, but it is covering everything and will do just fine for sledding.
I put on my Santa hat and grabbed the camera going outside for pictures. Have you ever tried to get two excited dogs to stop and pose for the camera?
Good luck Val, really! Hold still you two. Ha Ha!
You can tell that these two woofers love to go outside and play in the snow. Max runs everywhere in a cloud of white powder smelling all the deer tracks in the snow. He makes the whole perimeter circuit in a flash.
Hurley prefers to roll in the snow and jump up and down in front of me, as he tries to cool off from his heavy sheepdog-type curly coat.
It is nice powdery snow and we look forward to much more so we can start skiing this year.
Dogs Have Fun wrestling and pinning the opponent. These two have fun, looking like warfare! Max and Hilti are in the kitchen.
When my family visits, they usually bring their dogs along. Luckily, as a family, most of us do love dogs! Here are Hilti (Sam and Jess’s) and Max (Pete and Val’s) playing in the kitchen while we visit and play cards. The other voice you hear is my cousin Jeannie (Sam’s Mom) on the speakerphone in Colorado as we watch the 2 “cousin dogs” play.
