Snow Nutties on Saturday


The other day, I was walking along, nice as can be, when all of a sudden, it seemed like a really good idea to face plant in the snow.



Why am I doing this?



Now, alert readers know that I am not prone to silliness, so this irresistible urge was quite confounding to yours truly.





Help! I have been overtaken by snow nutties!

Once upon the ground, embraced by the crystalline particles, well, I found myself quite unaccountably rolling and thrashing about and taking no small amount of pleasure in the sensation of the gritty cold against my labraback.


Can.... not.... stop!



It felt GREAT!


Momma! You need to try this!



Eventually, I came back to my senses and did my best to return to an upright position with what grace and dignity I could muster.


Wow! That was crazy!

I can only attribute this unexpected departure from sanity was brought on by an extraordinarily long and cold winter in our part of the world. One does worry if further madness is in store.

Dexter done!

  1. You have been grass deprived for toooooo long. So you decided to try to scritch your back on the snow. Has happened to me also. Not to worry. Rumor has it spring will arrive. And leave. And arrive. And leave. and then be Replaced by Summer.

  2. Oh dear, Dexter. Such nuttiness is quite uncharacteristic of you. (but isn't it FUN to be nutty?)

  9. We've heard that Spring makes you do crazy things. Must even work when Winter won't let go..... We hope your mom got down and enjoyed a bit of snow rolling, too.

  10. We can see that you're going to miss the snow as much as we are, Dexter! Mom says that your idea is perfect for when she's having one of her hotflashes, whatever that means.

    Love ya lots♥

  11. Dexter. Of course you are prone to nutty spasms. It's just a natural part of being a labradude is it not? For a split second we thought we were seeing photos of Tyler cause you looked to have a slight chocolate tinge to your furs. He is a nutball ALL of the time. Soon you will be rolling in nice green grass and swimming. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  13. Dexter, I can assure you we have had no snow, yet are nutty as loons in our house. The black and whites have truly adapted to California living and now act like all the other nuts around here. Ann TBL

  19. I think maybe you were trying to show enthusiasm for spring, and rolling in the beautiful, sweet, green grass? I'm afraid it won't get here any faster for your enthusiasm, but at least you entertained your Momma, and us in the process!

  22. LOL Maybe you can blame it on the need to shed your very warm winter coat that was needd due to the very long winter? Yeesh, run-on sentence.

  23. Our Labs do that ALL the time! Perhaps you were talking to them about appropriate snow behavior? I'm so glad you now know how good a roll in the snow feels!

  28. Are you making a snow-angel Dexter LOL.

  29. Uh oh, you've gotten a taste of the snow nutties... It'll be impossible for your Momma to stop you! The only thing to cure it is lots of sunshine and no more snow for at least 6 months. We would suggest going cold turkey, but the word "cold" might trigger more nuttiness. So just scratch that whole sentence. Oh no, "scratch." That's kind of what you were doing in the snow...scratching your back a bit. We're just going to stop now! :)
