Unseasonal Weather!

Hello Everyone!
Sorry if we fell of the face of the planet, we have been busy busy busy as usual. Mum just hasn't been able to update this blog. Has anyone seen Cumbria in the news lately? We have had an unseasonal amount of snow, which piled into huge snow drifts, which caused loads of problems on the roads and up the fells. It was very windy and oh so cold. So very very cold. Well for Mum anyway, us doggies we just love the snow. It is great to play in, or in our case made-to-pose-for-photos-in.

We had never seen snow as deep as this, for England it is a lot. So naturally we enjoyed every second of it! Funnily enough, when the snows around we go all deaf on Mum, not matter how loud she shouts us, we always just have to have one more run or roll in the snow before we go back to her, weird huh?
Baird is now 18 weeks old and 35kg/77lbs, as you can see from some of the photos, he still intermittently has the 10ft training leash on still. Mum says it could be called an unorthodox method of training Baird,but it lets him run free, with the lead giving Mum peace on mind. His recall is almost there, but not 100%, he doesn't run away but follows us around. he stays with 'the pack' but he hasn't learnt that not every doggy is as friendly as us. He will get there though-I hope, hehe. Baird is now much bigger than Daisy Boo and slightly taller than Dante, Mum says that it is easy to forget that he is still a puppy-just a really big one!

Dante was enouraged not to run like a loon in the snow drifts, Mum didn't want to add the extra stress to his legs- but that doesn't mean he didn't try. He felt the cold from the walks when he got back home, so he got some extra TLC and pick of the best spot on Mums memory foam mattress, hehe. 

Last year in March we had a heat wave of epic proportions, so hot everyone was in their summer gear-now there is snow everywhere, we sure hope Spring decides to show up soon. Oh and a big Happy Easter to everyone!


  1. Yay, you guys are so cool. We're glad that there's another family that has four furry kids. We like snow but the shelties are not too crazy about it. We now have a few days of nice weather with temps in the highr 60's.

  2. You guys make us wish WE had snow! It looks like so much fun! We bet Baird will be heavier than Mommy before his first birthday. Hahaha!

  3. Just popping in to say HELLO!! We have had bits of snow lately too!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  4. Happy Easter guys!looks like you had lots of fun in the snow,the snow missed us but it cold here to with lots of cold wind brrr,I'm not keen on the cold either,xx Speedy

  5. Haha, you all look as if you are not minding the snow too much! Bet your mum doesn't agree though :) We have not got any on the coast, it is bitter cold though.

  6. Wow look at all your snow. It has been miserable and cold and grey down south. However today although cold it is sunny. Hooray. Stay warm. Have a fabulous Furday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Woah! You have heaps of snow! Up here in Scotland, we're getting wee bitties of snow every now and then, but it doesn't really lie on the ground because next minute there's beautiful sunshine! Oh, it's raining just now, typical.
    Have fun, you lucky doggies!
    Pippa :)

  8. What a lot of snow you had and we thought ours was bad. We are longing for the summer to come - or even Spring to come back :-) Great action shots and how big is Baird now - wow! Have a fun Easter - woofs and licks from Magic xx

  9. What gorgeous pictures! :-) The group shots, especially, are just ADORABLE! My human, Hsin-Yi, always wanted to visit Cumbria when she was living in the UK but she never got the chance. Ooh - I'm so jealous of your snow. I've never seen snow - and am not likely ever to in sunny Australia!

    Anyhu, I love all the action shots! They are just great! It really is the cutest postie!
