April 1st Snowfall by Dexter

I noticed that nobody has been using the computer for a few days, so I figured, what the heck, might as well sneak on and do a labrapost.

Today is April 1st and we got SNOW! Unbelievable! Made me feel like a young pup again all full of zoomies and vigor. Even the RH actually ran. Well, kind of.

ARG! Brain freeze! Why do I ALWAYS fall for the old snowball in the face trick?

Note to self, snow ball, tennis ball, two different things.

Look at this idiot. Hey Mango! You could drown that way.

Another attempt at an art photo. Ever notice how I sit a discrete distance from the Relentlessly Biting me in the head? Yup, I know just how far those jaws of doom can reach and no amount of encouragement from the DOH is going to make me get any closer.

Nothing left to do but dream of summer time activities.

Of course the word "activity" has a very loose interpretation by you know who.

Dexter done!

P.S. Wanna see a little snow in April funballs movie? Here you go!

No snow here. There's a chance of something tonight, but it's still in the 40s, so I think we're good... as in no snow.

Snow in April is just WRONG! Must be nature's April Fools! I looked and a significant number of my posts lately have been about weather. Hmmm.

Woo Hoo - so good to see woo two!!! But that was a dirty trick Mother Nature played on you - wish she had come here instead. We had to laugh at you not wanting to get closer to Mango - we have the same problem here with Phantom - he always wants to sit apart from TD and Ciara. We had a similar photoshoot in the yard tonight, but we didn't have any snow.

Have a good weekend, maybe it will melt quickly.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

I'm glad that you're happy that you got snow, because I'd be one unhappy pooch!

How did my tail get on Dexter's face???

PeeEssWoo: See, I told woo I sent mine to New England! Since my DOH had to go to work, I figured since I khan't play in it why not send it to The RH and The Pea!

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

You are so lucky. We were supposed to get a little of that snow, but we just got rain. The peeps are very happy about the no snow thing, but we would have loved just one more snowfall. I'm glad you enjoyed it, though. Really.

I was hoping this was an April Fool's prank! I'm dreaming of summer, too, Dex!


Zona said...

WOW! That's a lot of snow! We had a teeny tiny on our deck this morning but it was gone before I even had time to play in it!

The pictures in this post made me BOL! Loved it!!!


Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Man, is it good to have you back! Hope the Momma's mentals are rested. We want a doggie bed like the Pea has: a nice plush sofa plus added thick sofa cushions for that important lofty, cushy feel. There's a princess and The Pea joke in there somewhere, but we can't come up with it.

Good to see the RH galloping - well, cantering - around the yard, destroying snowmen [does the DOH hide treats inside, to trigger the interest in knocking down the snow mound?]. Jed likes to catch snowflakes on his tongue, too.

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

I would have thought you april fooled us, but Kylie posted about it too. Unless you in on it toghether. BOL!
I like your artsy piccure, the gas really brings it to life.
Glad you and Mango had fun Dexter. I like to push the top cushions down on the sofa too.

Snow in April?
I would rather think this is an April Fool.
I'm waiting for spring. This weekend we will have it.
Lots of love

Pepsi the Lazy Bum said...

Surprise snow, yay! I'm glad the 2 of you had fun in the snows and did zoomies.

So....It's Spring! Neener neener April Fools ;P

Good to see y'all :) Great dreams you both had :)

Wishin I was waggin at ya,

Cowspotdog said...

I guess that was an April fools day on you - thinking the snow was over. Isn't that just crazy - but such fun to play in when it first falls

D.K. Wall said...

Our snow fall was most disappointing as we could still see ground through it. Hard to call it snow when our paw pads could not even sink into it.

Anonymous said...

um, not to brag, but it's so warm we're in short sleeves... i'd cry if i had snow now...

Randi said...


THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH FOR THE LOVELY CARD! It made my day - no wait, my week - maybe even my month cuz my mom has been so occupied with my little bro Quincy - (aka TIMESUCK BABY) that knowing you thought of me just makes my heart go pitterpatter...

I love that piccy of you laying on the couch - even without your special blankie & all smooshed in the cushions on top - soooo cute!

Thank you again my dear little cublet!


Kari in Alaska said...

Mother Nature sure pulled an April's Fools joke on you! It was 95 here this weekend :(


CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

LOL! Love the snowball in the face and cold nards! BOL!

Moose said...

Holy cow! It is full on summer here at the mooselodge so this just does not seem possible!
I like your sofa mod pee wee!

Molly the Airedale said...

Wow! Look how much snow you got! All we got was a few flakes mixed with lots of rain. You guys are having all the fun!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Oh Dexter good to hear from you. Snow in April? In Spring? Weird. At least you had some serious fun. You must be one spoilt boy to have a fabulous couch like yours to sleep on, or did you sneak up there? Take care and hugs to you and the big fella. No worries, love Carol.

Asta said...

Don't wowwy

KB said...

Snow is on the way here again too! But, for today, I'm sitting on the deck!

I love it - RH dreaming of sleeping while he's sleeping. You are too funny, Dexter.

Thanks for making me laugh Dexter, you are the best!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Felt like you guys were gone a how was the snow??? We got some but not that much!

Captain Farts Alot???

He's gonna bite your head off, dear boy...I'm just sayin'....

Hey Stan has gone to two obedience classes this week...Mumsie asked the teacher guy about me...he um well ah suggested she put me in the GROWL class with other agressive dogs. AS IF.

He said if I got in a REGULAR class what happens is I would be the only dog to show up the second week...

He can just kiss my cute little Lacie bum....

And I'm gonna go to the regular class just to irritate him.

Growls, Beastie

Cinnamon and Mint said...

Hi Dexter,
nice to see you were glad to have some snow... You guys cannot say you missed some this year, can you?
I am so happy I can see the first spring flowers here...
I really had enough of the cold...
Nice to see you so soon ;)
Ciao Lucille

Snow is April is awful!! I'd cry lol. And this isn't an April Fools??

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Hey! We just got 18 inches last night! Dad was a little grumbly about having to clear the driveway, and it meant no car race (it snowed down in Salt Lake, too...) but we had fun! Mango's zoomies are Most Impressive (is he like an oil tanker - does it take him 1/2 mile to slow down once he gets moving? Heehee) Happy snow times!
