We got quite a lot of snow. I’d say it was about a foot. That may not be so much for the mountain dwellers, but in these parts that makes for a pretty good storm. Jeff cleaned off my car, but left a pillar of snow to see just how much we got. We put Rachel next to it to give some sense of proportion. Rachel was feeling quite creative in the snow, and made a snow baby. Here she is displaying her artwork. Scout got into the action a little bit too. He briefly escaped the confines of the yard, and when he was running back through the deep snow we got a bit of a chuckle. We recreated the moment in the back yard by playing a little fetch with him. He really likes the snow a lot!
Today Scout got a haircut. I was going to try to wait until the weather was consistently warmer, but he had so many mats in his hair at his collar that I just couldn’t wait any longer. I was trying to brush them out, but it was not happening.
This is Scout “before”: I think he is so cute with his curls and shaggy look. Some people even (mistakenly) thought he was getting fat. But with warm weather coming, not to mention the matted hair at his collar, a new look was necessary.
Unfortunately, for about a month, Scout looks like a scrawny, geeky little nerd with his haircut. Fortunately his personality stays as sweet as ever. Here is his “after” picture: It’s hard to believe it is the same dog. But it is! You can’t really tell from that picture, but he sure looks scrawny after a haircut!
