Bipolar Winter

We’ve been MIA for a long time!

Everything is good and we’ve been having a very strange “winter”. The best way to describe it is a bipolar winter! One day it snows, the next day it’s 12C, the next day it snows again…

Here’s some pictures from the times we do have snow, although it always seems to melt within a week!


New year, same antics

With Chase 2016 is the same!



Even the papillons are enjoying short bursts of snow time in 2016

And Sabrina hibernates like she always does in winter ๐Ÿ™‚


Another snowfall!!

It was the fluffy stuff this time around, the best kind!!!

It left a beautiful coating of snow on all the tree too.

Chase is such a gorgeous picture taker!!

Got to love the last picture, it looks like Chase is smiling ๐Ÿ™‚

We hope everyone is enjoying December!

Snowfall #2 :)

Yep, we got another snow, this time it was enough to be called a snowstorm!

It started with freezing rain, then 15 cm of snow, then more freezing rain. Made for quite a mess this morning!

As per usual, Chase was excited!!!


Such a cute little goof he is ๐Ÿ™‚

Chase and I hope everyone is having a great December thus far!

First snow: Winter 2015

It snowed last night!!

Most people are upset it snowed and/or worried due to lack of snow tires… but it’ll likely melt by the end of today anyway

Regardless, Chase and I are excited!!!!


Flashback Friday!

Say hello to Sammy! I was only 3 or 4 years old when he passed away. But my mom tells me we were very close. He was always by my side and I refused to go to bed at night if he wasn’t in my room ๐Ÿ™‚


We always had snow… and the neighbors had way more trees lol


Sammy was an escape artist, hence the chain! My parents gave up on rope when he kept breaking free… but he would break chains too! He was not a bad dog, he never left the neighborhood, but he would tear apart people’s garbage bags!


Christmasย in the early 90’s! What a disaster zone! But there is me with my buddy Sammy! Another pictures shows my parents watching my brother open presents, but I am too busy hugging Sammy to care ๐Ÿ˜‰


What a cute puppy! He was a German-Shepard & Husky mix!

Throwback Thursday #11

Here are memories from December 2012 AKA Chase’ first Christmas and first snowfall!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Then I got an amazing camera Christmas and the pictures increased in both quality and quantity ๐Ÿ˜‰

And that about wraps up my 2 month TBT post series of picture from 2012 with Chase! There are oh so many more, these are a mere sample! I love taking pictures of animals!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Snow Post #20… Yes that’s right

Well we got more snow today. Only a few cm, but considering it’s April 28… any amount is too much!

I can’t even bring myself to post pictures.

I will say my drive home was scary this afternoon! My usual 35 minute drive turned into an hourย drive!

The roads were this slushy icy mess! The front of my car had a few cm thick of icy slush coated on it when I got home.


I guess we will skip from winter to summer then?

Chase as per usual doesn’t mind at all, he’s happy like always! Gotta love himย for always being so positive about the weather ๐Ÿ˜‰

Snow, rain, sun, clouds, freezing rain, wind, hail… it’s all good to Chase!!

The snow is melting + Sabrina’s birthday

Slowly though… We are speeding up the process in the fenced area by shoveling it everyday! We either throw it over the fence or spread it out in the yard so it’ll melt faster.


Sabrina turned 11! She doesn’t like toys or food so her present was being allowed outside. We were shoveling so she went inside and watched from the safety of inside ๐Ÿ˜‰

This side of the yard is looking real good!


Can we just ignore the other side of the fence?


This side of the yard is much snowier but I am working on it! Jasmine loved burying her ball in the freshly shoveled snow!


When the side tongue happens, you know Chase has been hard to work chasing snow and barking like a crazy dog!


Calm and cool Joey!


Took this while Dad was shoveling LOL what a goof!

Sunny days ahead!

We’ve had some nice sunny days this week! Of course the snow is still here, that much snow will take awhile to melt!

Chase is loving the warm up combined with the snow, snowball fights without the freezing cold? YES PLEASE!


Don’t mind me, just chewing on the snowbank… but hey look a small line of grass! Good thing we shovel our snow down, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to see this patch of grass yet!

We also have another woodland creature who has awoken from his slumber


I use to think it was a muskrat, now looking at this picture it looks like a groundhog!
