Poor Abby.....

Look at what happens to my poor little Abby when she goes out in the snow.

She ends up wearing it!
She's a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and has very soft feathery fur.
Leaves, branches, dirt, and yes
get tangled and stuck to the feathery fur on her legs and it is
nearly impossible to get out.

See, here I just told her "Staaaaaay, I have to get my little cup of warm water to dip your paws into, to melt the snow" then I dry her off and she lays by the fire to get nice and warm again.

It's a snow day and probably a snow WEEK for the kids since we are supposed to be hit with a snowstorm tonight and into tomorrow in western Washington.

The kids have been out sledding all day. Here, my daughter was so kind as to help relieve the weight of the snow off the branches of my Japanese Maple.
Oops, good thing she had on her hood!

A little snow fort just for Abby!

I think she'd rather be by the fire:)

Hope everyone stays warm and dry!

what a little sweetheart Abby is! I have two dogs...my girl Sunny is a long haired golden so I feel Abby's pain when it comes to clumps of snow ;)

Ruby Jean said...

So very SWEET Michelle... I only wish we had some of that snow.... But alas we are still in the mid to high 80s... So Sad... I want to experience a REAL winter.. :)

Abby is so precious. I miss Whidbey Island, WA so much. Western Washington is so pretty! Have fun in the snow.

Faded Charm said...

I can relate. Our golden retriever gets snow matted all over on his belly as well...he can't stand it.

Looks like our snow is slowly melting and just rain now. We've lost power twice now and still really windy....wishing for Spring:-)

Oh my gosh....I'm in love with your sweet little Abby! I think a King Charles will have to find a home with me in the near future, Michelle. What can you tell me about the breed? Smart? Trainable? Loving? Lots of eye contact? How big do they get? Thanks - and I enjoyed your photos! :)

We have a bichon who has the same trouble at times. They need some little doggy boots, don't they?

Your Abby is so cute. I just love those puppy eyes.

Unknown said...

Oh my goodness, that face is to die for !!! Poor baby, must admit it's quite funny how the snow accumulates like that...looks like a little sweet snow monster!

We haven't had much of any snow so far this year and the weather has been quite warm. I know I shouldn't complain but I love snow! I want just one good one to make everything pretty here!

Stay warm by that fire!
