Wordless Wednesday - Fun in the Snow

I've seen the big deer leap...

Lucy is now 8 months old, and is a constant source of fun with her loving and playful nature. This weekend she enjoyed her first experiences of crisp, deep snow, and her wonderful sense of fun really comes across in these (otherwise rather monotone) photos. I was laughing so much at her antics that it was difficult to hold the camera still enough to take these shots!

... just like this....

... but they made it look easy!

Is my bone down there somewhere?

Oh boy....

.... this is fun!

Quick rest  .....

... then off again!

  1. Love that dog, Erika!!!  We have been doing research--possibly, maybe thinking about, another dog!    Lucy is quite energetic!!! xi

  2. Love your pics Erika. So sad I will never see my present pooches play in the snow. I would love to see their reaction.

  9. She's extremely energetic Cait - completely fearless, tireless, and on the go from dawn till dusk! We love her to bits and she is the happiest dog I've ever had, and so loveable. Good luck with the doggy-reseach - cockers made fantastic pets, but not sure I'd recommend this breed unless you can cope with such an incredible bundle of energy!

  10. Awww bless her!! looks like she had so much fun :)

  11. Aw, they'd love it Mandy - watching Lucy was truly memorable, leaping around like a spring lamb! But then, Lucy probably isn't going to experience the sea - and I'm definitely not letting her anywhere near the swimming pool!!!!!

  18. It's so much fun watching a dog (or kids) play in the snow. Our German Shepherd used to love running around in the snow and eat it. My dogs don't have the pleasure of knowing snow... I wonder what they would do if they ever were put in contact with it!!! :)

  33. Hi Susi - I'll bet they would have as much fun as Lucy! She was so funny to watch - leaping around, trying to catch the snowflakes, burying her nose in it, digging, following deer and pheasant tracks in the garden - it was exhausting to watch!

    ReplyDelete
  34. What a sweet set of pictures! <3 I absolutely LOVE this sequence; dogs are so wonderful to watch when they're enjoying themselves!

  68. I thought Lucy was going to get lost at one point, but thankfully it stopped snowing! Do you ever get snow where you are in Tasmania?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Nothing like trying to remove the lumps of balled snow that were stuck from between her toes, either, LOL!!!! Thanks for dropping by, Julie :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. Oh, she was Lori! She was leaping around like a spring lamb!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Thanks Verena! She really enjoyed herself!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Thanks Angie! We had a LOT of snow, but fortunately it's just starting to thaw!

    ReplyDelete
  73. The best thing was that the snow was clean - if she leaps around like that when it's been raining he gets covered in mud and I have to bath her after every walk!

    ReplyDelete
  74. She was a picture, Chloe - couldn't stop myself laughing at her!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Happy to oblige!!! Thanks for stopping by :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. Last time I was in NY (about 6 years ago) it WAS snowing, and around -7C! What breed of puppy do you have?

    ReplyDelete
  77. The snow kept her entertained for hours, LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I was going to say you are welcome to some of it, but it has at last started to thaw! Thanks for stopping by :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. Yup, she had a real blast! So much so that we've not had to take her for a walk this week, as she's exhausted herself playing in the snow :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. Thank you so much! ANd thanks for stopping by :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Adorable but spoilted, Tammy! And selectively deaf - if she doesn't want to come when we call her, she ignores us completely!

    ReplyDelete
  82. He he he! I used to love skiing, but that was before I developed a spare tyre, LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Wonderful to watch - that joy and innocence creates infectious laughter! It was impossible not to laugh at her! Thanks for dropping by, Sny!

    ReplyDelete
  88. LOL, Judy - I wonder that too as was so funny trying to catch the snowflakes as they fell!!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Hi May, Lucy has fun doing just about anything, and is on the go from dawn until dusk!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Hi Kathryn! Lucy certainly enjoys life, she is a real bundle of fun!

    ReplyDelete
  91. She had tremendous fun - it's a shame the snow is starting to thaw, as she played in it until her little paws got frozen, LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  92. She had a real blast! Have a great week :)

    ReplyDelete
  93. Glad you enjoyed them! Lucy had so much fun I couldn't resist sharing them!

    ReplyDelete
  94. She really enjoyed it Anna, not like me!

  99. Oh, I'd love to see a photo of your Lucy! We used to have a golden retriever called Tess - sadly she died 2 years ago - but she hated the snow, and the rain! Thanks for linking up, am following you too!

    ReplyDelete
  100. Thanks ever so much - sadly I missed the giveaway, as my little granddaughter would have LOVED one of your beautiful owl hats. But I'll keep my eye on your website and perhaps get her one for her birthday later in the year!

    ReplyDelete
  101. She had a great time Patrice - so much so she didn't want to come indoors!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Thank you Tanya! Nice to see you here, and am Linky following you too!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Oh Kelly, I just can't imagine life without a dog - it would probably be a lot cleaner & tidier, and not so much fun! I love your blog by the way!

    ReplyDelete

  109. Hi there Will, and thanks for visiting! Lucy is an English Cocker Spaniel - although she has very long hair a little like an afghan! My husband had a cocker spaniel when he was a child, and it lived to the age of 17, so we're in for a few exhausting years! Have a great week :)

    ReplyDelete
  110. That is cute! I'm not a dog person, but I can see the joy he has romping in the snow, much like my two year old. :) Adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  111. P.S. I am following you on BlogLovin and Linky, and thanks so much for stopping by today!

    ReplyDelete
  112. My previous comment isn't showing for some reason. I've never seen snow here in Launceston but we do get snow in the highlands & the surrounding mountains. When I lived on the West Coast it would often snow.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Oh I just noticed my 1st comment was further down when I clicked the load more comments button. Silly me...

    ReplyDelete
  114. LOL, Tony - I find this commenting technology just as confusing too! I've been to Australia, but not yet reached Tasmania which I'm told has some beautiful parts. I'd love to see the Cradle Mountain area, and the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park! They're still on the list...

    ReplyDelete
  115. Thank you ever so much, Heather! Look forward to chatting again soon!

    ReplyDelete
  116. My wife & I spent part of our Honeymoon at Cradle Mountain. It is a truly beautiful part of Tasmania. My daughter & her husband went there on their honeymoon recently too.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I've been looking through your blog. A few posts ago I saw you doggy looking sad in the snow. Then here, he looks like the happiest dog ever. So cute.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Hi Shanda! Yes, Lucy certainly is a very happy little dog!!!

Someone once said that comments are like chocolates - you can never eat just one. As a chocoholic, I love to dip into your replies, and always respond to as many comments as I can!
