A Day Of Rest

After so much fun in the snow, the boyz are taking a day of rest to heal/strengthen their bodies and minds, with some qualty sleep time.

Uschi is out,...

Bob-Tail T,...

has a toy mouse at all times.

Usch enjoys the Catcoon.

Both boyz enjoy the ottoman.

T gets in the strangest positions,...

but always

seems to get comfy

and stretched out.

Uschi likes to sleep on chairs,
(probably because T can't "lay" next to him)

but he won't pass-up on the silk blanket,
if given the oppertunity.

Oooo, thats nice,...

Even when sleeping,
T's paws knead,
no doubt there are toys running
around in his head.

Nice T-tail.

What?,... is it time to play?

I can play,...

Well, okay,...

I'll just be here then,...
getting comfy.

Our second day of snow, and once again we raced home to be able to take the boyz out for a romp. This time the snow was a bit deeper (about 1.5 inches) so for the first minute or two they took tentative steps and scratched at the snow a bit. Both quickly got really excited and started meowing and running around. When it was time to go back inside, neither wanted to go back in, and Uschi prowled around by the door letting us know he could play a bit more in the snow.

Uschi's paws are sinking in the snow.
He's not sure about this at first...

but he's quickly chasing his leash.

Tanj also contemplates the deeper snow...

and he's quickly off and running.

Here comes Tanj...

to investigate the "cat litter" pile and

stroll around the bioswale.

Uschi walks along the area
where his clover patch is
submerged under water.

Tanj is back sprinting around
and ends up at the pond...

Both boyz notice the ice slick that is forming
on the pond water and they want to jump
on it. We watch them closely since they
could get really cold and wet if they try!

"I'm just looking"

Tanj settles for a drink, but

Uschi gets his paws wet.

First Snow

We do not normally get snow, and we just blogged about the Fall, but yesterday it was cold enough to crystallize our winter rains into snow. Lesley and I excitedly hurried home from work to get the boys outside before the snow melted away. It was the boyz first snow.

A quick sniff,

they are ready to go,...

at full speed,...

ears flapping in the breeze,


to and fro,

the entire family,

enjoyed the dusting of snow.

Back home,

Uschi checked out the pond water,...

before it started to snow harder,...


I've left my prints in the snow,

and had enough fun,

I'm ready to go,

inside to clean my paws in the sun,

while watching the snow.

Today we woke

only about 1.5inches,... but

We do not normally get snow.
