Snowpocalypse 2013

You probably heard that New England had a little snowstorm last weekend.   Poor hubby had quite a job snowblowing the driveway.

The next day dawned with a beautiful blue sky, and the sun came out, so we took advantage of the weather and took Toby out for a rousing game of "Fetch". This is our fourth winter with Toby, but it is the first time we have seen so much snow accumulation.  I wondered how a 15 inch dog would manage in a 24 inch snow pile, and he showed us that he was up to the task.

It all starts with a leap into the snowy abyss:

Then he bobs up and down as he approaches the orange "flying squirrel", creating his own tunnel through the snow.

On the way back, he wisely follows the path he created on the way out.

Eventually, he returns with his prized toy,

and is all ready to do it again.

Off he goes!

If you are a new visitor to my blog from Marlene at Stitchin by the Lake, welcome, and thanks for stopping by my little corner of the neighborhood.    Normally you would find quilt content here at Quilt Crossing, but Toby sometimes sneaks in and steals the show.   I also dabble in knitting, crochet and genealogy and have a love for British dramas.  Thanks for visiting!

  1. what wonderful fun! I just love to see dogs playing in the snow.
    Did I ever tell you, Toby looks just like my first dog, also called Toby? I must find an old photo soon.

  2. It looks like Toby had more fun than your poor husband snow blowing! So glad it's on the warm side this year and some of the snow is melting. We just had too much!

  3. Oh my, your husband looks like a snowman! We only got about 10 inches here. Hope you are all dug out by now.

    Visiting from Marlene's Stitchin' by the Lake Blog.

  4. Hey there! I'm visiting from Stitchin By the Lake. I'm amazed at all the snow. I'm a bit of a genealogy nut myself. Love your blog!

  5. LOVE these pictures! The one snow we had this winter was so gorgeous I'm wanting one more. :). Blessings, Marlene

  6. Hello, neighbor! We don't get much snow in Central Texas, so I had fun looking at your pictures. I suspect my two dogs would not handle the situation nearly as well as your's did. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I remember when you first got Toby! I'm glad he still shows up in your blog now and then.
