Snow Day Fun


By now everyone has heard the news reports, seen the pictures of the huge snow storm that hammered Colorado for about the last 24 hours. Larkspur Funny Farm has received around 25 inches not counting drifts. However, it may mean TONS more work for this gal but for others here at the farm it is nothing short of True Bliss...


If you are wondering what that lump in the snow bank is - IT IS SILLY SOPHIA ...


Yep, Great Pry's LOVE SNOW - I think I have mentioned that a few times... Well, what they love to do is run with their face down in the snow, like a snow plow and run full out, roll and wiggle their butts - hour after hour.. While taking this picture she did not even notice I was there so until I called her name and then she looked up at me like "What? - I wasn't doing anything - Honest, I was watching for bad guys".. As soon as my back was turned she went right back to her snow day fun. We should all find such joy in such simple things.


I must admit as I walked through thigh high snow I did not plant my face into it (at least never on purpose) and run with all my might in circles wiggling my butt. I was thrilled that not a single animal suffered with this latest storm and that I had the strength to do what is required without the aid of eight tiny reindeer.


Tonight the temps are dipping to sub zero's and that means nightly checks but at least it has stopped snowing and I will count that as a great thing - still I am not going to wiggle my butt at least not on purpose..
