The Adventures of Snow Monkey

January 20, 2011 · 8 comments

We’ve finally figured out the practical advantage of Winnie’s soft curly hair.

Aside from the fact that it doesn’t shed, is wonderful to the touch, and is relatively easy to comb burrs out of, he was going to need a shearling parka.

Winne LOVES the snow and spends as much time as he can cultivating that “sugar-frosted puppy” look.

Apparently, one of the most fun parts of wearing confectioners sugar is how easily it can be removed when the time comes. It appears that the trick is to start the shimmy from the front…

… and let the ripple effect work its magic towards the rear of the enterprise.

The technique is almost 100% effective.


Excuse me. I must go hose down the camera lens now.

I think the McNugget is now my favorite snowmobile!

Love the photos of Winnie. Wow, are these photos from your place in Idaho? Lots of snow! Seeing these photos brings back a lotta memories (brrrr) to this former Ohio girl!

I always have to almost giggle when the stern of dogs ends up in a but wiggle and helicopter effect of the tail. 😀

He’s getting big! Gosh he looks a lot like our snow monkey, who also enjoys snow play, I think it’s a s’poodle thing! Wonderful photos of the shimmy-shake!
