While Wild Dingo's personal photographer, TravelMarx, are excellent at taking photos, they have fallen below average in downloading the most recent to Wild Dingo's computer. So while they're doing some boring, fascinating tour of some Nuclear & Partical Physics Lab in Geneva, (yawn), I'm posting the rest of the photos from our weeked of funballs time in the snow.
Downtown Morges at Independent Park next to Lake Leman (Lake Geneva).
We were all tempted to put some snowballs in these sculputed dancers hands.
Back at the house, Loki challenges everyone to a game of tug. First Popppy.
"Pop. You cannot defeat me! I am the Tug-Master!
Then me. I'm obviously so shaken by two scary looking dogs with big toofers that I shut my eyes and hope they don't eat me.
I know I'm not supposed to do this, but whenever I do, it doesn't seem like she actually gets this much air. In the photo it looks much higher than it seems in life. Sometimes you'd never know she has hip dysplasia. But trust me, we can see it. She's not nearly as active as she used to be.
Next up, Marc of the TravelMarx challenges the Tug Master. Tug Master wins as usual. Yawn.
I tease the Cracker. Nothing he loves more than sinking his teeth into something he can fight. Ya, doesn't that just sound delightful?
I set him up in a sit and walked away then released him for a running jump and bite.
He looks like he means it as he runs full speed toward the tug.
Doh! The snow throws him off and he doesn't get a full grip bite.
I tease him and tell him he's a wussy boy and before I know it, he's got the full grip.
"Who you callin' a wussy boy Mom?"
"That's right woman. I'm the tug stud. So don't even think of taking it."
And this is what we came to Switzerland for. Nothing more gorgeous than seeing my Siberian in the snow.
"Nobody can outsprint me in the snow!"
YAY for snow zoomies!!! (And a physics lab? Even if they smash atoms and stuff, I can't imagine that they've got interactive displays.... *double yawn*)
-Fiona and Abby the Hippobottomus (who are waiting for it to get above 3 degrees (F) before they go chase Frisbees...)
Sigh. We are feeling so snow deprived.
Oooooooo! I love those pictures of Juno in the snow!
I learned my lesson. No more playing tug with cracker dogs for me! Damned dog nearly broke my thumb last night, and she came up and put the ball in my hand! Gah!
snow zoomies are the best zoomies! Juno looks so happy!
AHA!!! Now the real reason you went to Switzerland come out:) The Marx guys sure do get some great photos - nice to see all those beautiful smiles on your face.
Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara
Sure looks like you guys are having a great time! Enjoy that snow. 🙂
Wonderful wonderful pics! The one in the park looks like something in a travelog. We agree, nothing more beawootiful than a Siberian in the snow!
jack & moo,
snowless in RhodeIsland
Juno looks SO happy in the last 2 shots 🙂
OMD, look at all that snow! Please send some to us! It's raining and muddy here!
They look so happy! 🙂
Mochi & Bali
LOVE all the pictures but the new one for the December header is the best.
From a very muddy and snowless TO, while you and the Rhone-Alpes region are being clobbered. WTF?!?
Just been enjoying catching up on your last 5 posts! AMAZING the sudden snow! I know it probably isn't as romantic living in it but gosh, from the photos, it looks like a real "winter wonderland" - like something out of storybooks! LOVE, love, LOVE the photo of Juno in the snow with her front paw raised - just gorgeous!!
ps. so what do the new boots look like?? 😉
Snow is THE happiest thing of all!
Well, maybe next to food.
It is great to see princess Juno having funballs in the snow. I bet she is glad you moved now for sure. Nothing like that in CA! Don't worry, the snow is soft and good for jumping even with sore legs.
Hehe I LOVE that last pic of Juno. They do look so awesome in the snow. They are just meant to be in it. 🙂 Watching Storm enjoy it makes having snow worth it when normally it's just a pain.
