The winter storm Jonas has brought 30 inches of snow to where we live in New York. 30 inches! While yesterday we were snowed in, it was the perfect day to just unwind after the long work week. But Sunday Funday remains a tradition in my home, and I took the opportunity to snap some pictures of Alaska and Oreo on our short (but fun) outings.
Early this morning, it took quite a while to shovel out the car in the driveway buried entirely beneath snow. Then I took Alaska along in the car to the gas station, but it wasn’t all peaceful as she found pleasure in barking at everyone shoveling the entire way there.
Once we came back home, I had the spontaneous idea of digging a small igloo with the snow on the balcony- just enough to fit Alaska and Oreo. I am not sure what Alaska thought of it, but Oreo loved it!
Meanwhile, a couple of neighbors down the block were arguing over shoveling snow on each other’s property. Alaska, being the nosey-body she is, had to pitch in her thoughts on their argument by growling from the balcony.
Back inside the warmth of the house, the afternoon was spent playing with her favorite plush toys. Alaska loves to take them in her mouth and shake them so hard that I wonder if her neck ever hurts from all that shaking. For dinner, Alaska was treated to a hearty, raw meal of ground wild salmon, ground pork with organs, and a chunk of beef cheek, topped with a frozen cube of homemade beef bone broth mixed with her EverPup powdered supplement.
All in all, it was a fun and mellow snow day! The night ended with Alaska in her bed with Oreo standing guard (but really, he wanted her spot in bed!). Good night 🙂
