Spring was... well, springing!


The lilac bushes had the teeniest of buds on them, and the sun was shining over the finally green grass...


The weather was even pleasant enough for a game of tennis ball chase with the puppy, who, though not technically a puppy anymore, still gets herself into all sorts of puppy-like trouble.


For example, I turn my back for one second, and she lodges herself under my car in pursuit of the ball. After checking to make sure she wasn't stuck, and was in fact there because of her own persistence, I thought it was too funny not to capture with the camera.


The chase even brought us over by the pool, an area that always fascinates the puppers, because it's fenced in and full of flora and fauna.


It was a beautiful day, warm and bright. There seemed to finally be a light at the end of the tunnel that is winter in the North East. But then I woke up this morning to a blanket of snow, fluffy, white, and disappointing. And though it's not sticking too well, it has continued to snow all day so far. Cruel weather. Giving me a day of blissful spring and then snatching it away.


However, judging by the skeptical look on her face, the pups saw this coming...

-l.c.

Aww! Looks like you two had a fun game. Sorry the snow wrecked things (even a snow lover like me doesn't much like it this late in the year), but it always melts in a hurry when it snows in April.

Your puppy is the sweetest angel in the world!
So what's up with that snow.
