Whoever said, "Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow" should be made to come shovel our yard. 
And then we will bite their ankles.

Just in case you don't know, we live in southeastern Virginia. Average snowfall for a year? 7.8 inches. Average snowfall for December? 0.9 inches

As of 3:30 this afternoon, we had 14.5 inches. And it KEEPS COMING DOWN!
This morning, the snow was up to our pugbellies or about 5 inches. Mom had to carry all four of us out of the house. We're no dummies. We weren't going out in that icky cold wet stuff.
But she put us under the deck where the snow wasn't as bad. Tallulah was a big baby and wouldn't come out from under the deck so mom could pick her up to take her in. 

Can you see the path that mom cleared at 11:30? 
At the bottom of the deck steps, the snow is higher than the first step.

Our patio furniture looks like cupcakes with a ton of frosting.

But it does make for a pretty picture of our house.
Needless to say, we aren't going out in that mess. That snow is deeper than we are tall! We're only 12 inches at the shoulders! Thank Dog for potty pads and newspapers. 

We know this storm is headed up north, along the East Coast. So all our friends up that way, be careful and stay warm. Hope your parents have enough food and treats (and potty pads) to last you guys. 

UPDATE! Mom has Monday off of work! WHOO HOO!


  1. Wow!! That is alot of snow for your area!! Hope it quits snowing and doesn't take too long to dig out of it!!

  2. Holy CRAP! That's some SERIOUS snow!

    Snuggle up with your hoomans for a few days and just forget about the mess outside! It might start to melt around the Fourth of July!


  3. Oh my goodness! That is a lot of snow!! We came back to St. Louis to 4 inches of snow today - I wasn't prepared at all. 4 inches touches my belly and it makes me mad! We only got a little skiff of snow at Grandma & Grandpa's in Southern Missouri so it totally sucked coming back here! I feel bad for you guys. At least you have those awesome bones to chew on. And I go potty under the deck in these conditions too. :)


    PS your house sure does look BEAUTIFUL though!!

  4. Isnt the snow nuts?!!?!?! I cant believe all the snow we have had!! Mommy le me play in it for a while and it was soo much fun (I guess that is the plus of being a tall doggie!!! But almost my whole legs where covered from just standing in the snow!?!!? burrr!

  5. WOW that is a lot of snow!!!!! Thank pugness we didn't gets any, just lots of rain. We had snow like that 2 years ago and it really inconvenience my walkies.


  6. Love all that beautiful snow

  7. That sure is a lot of snow ... more than we got here in Illinois! My pugs had a lot of fun playing in it over the weekend but they don't like to go out and potty. Like you said "thank dog for potty pads and newspapers"!

  8. Holy pug butts!!! That is more snow than last year huh. I thought last year was bad for Tuni, but all four puggies can't go outside sad. We hope it will melts soon.
