First Snow of the Year

A couple weeks ago we had our first snow of the season and it stuck. It was on a day off so I didn't have to go anywhere, which was nice. I don't like winter - I'd much rather warm, sunny weather, but it's still magical when it snows and to see everything covered with white.

River is IN LOVE with winter. It is his absolute favorite season. He adores playing in the snow. When it's cold outside, it is impossible to tire him out. He just wants to play forever.

Here is some during and after video of our first snow. And River of course, enjoying himself.

He is chewing on a tennis ball and "wrestling" with the falling snow.

I got him to put the ball down so I could video him snapping at the falling snow - so cute!

Not much accumulation but it was so pretty covering all the bare trees.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! My Christmas was very nice: good giving, good getting, good food, good time with family :)


  1. Haha, he cracks me up snapping at the snowflakes! What a funny doggy :). I love the snow when it covers the trees like that - it makes the bare branches so much more beautiful!

  2. That is so cute! It's so funny how some dogs just love the snow, and some turn really prissy with it! River's just beautiful!

    Merry Christmas!

  3. Sounds like a wonderful Christmas. For you and for River the Winter Dog.

  4. So cute! I love the look of snow before it all blows from the trees!

  5. River is gorgeous! What a stunning boy--don't you just love watching dogs go wild in the snow? Happy 2010 to you and yours~

  6. So pretty! River looks like he belongs in the snow!

  7. Hello! I am seeking participants for my dissertation on the impact of an IF diagnosis / treatment on couples. Would you consider participating? If so, you can check out my blog at, or email me at .

    Thanks in advance!

  8. Man, that is one happy dog! So cute! He is truly at home in the snow!

    And a blogoversary! Congrats!

  9. Hi - I've just stumbled across your blog and I have to say your pup is downright adorable. I can relate to your baby struggle as we have been told we can't have children naturally. Glad you are enjoying the snow, we don't get much were I live (at the moment) and I adore snow. x

  10. Hello!

    My name is Elisabeth, and I am an infertility / repeated pregnancy loss "veteran". You can read a little bit about me and my experiences in my blog: . I am completing a PhD in Counseling Psychology, and my dissertation is focused upon the impact of infertility on marriage. I believe strongly that there is a need for better support services for men and women who are undergoing IF diagnosis and treatment, and my hope is that this study will aid in the development of such services.

    I am contacting you after stumbling across your blog. I am recruiting participants for my study, and wanted to invite you and your husband to take part. All that would be involved would be the completion of an online survey, that would take approximately 20 minutes. All couples who complete the surveys will receive a voucher good for a pair of free movie tickets at a Regal Cinemas.

    Please let me know if you are interested by emailing me at .


  11. He's so adorable!!!!


  12. OMG River has people eyes. =) Lol! He is adorable! I love dogs. My husband and I have two Bassets at home and I can only imagine what they would do in the snow! Unfortnately, we live in Florida so there is little chance of seeing that... heh!

    Happy ICLW!
