So Molly and I canceled all our plans for the day and stayed home for a snow day (even though I didn't have to work today anyways it gave me a good excuse to cancel house work plans too:D)
I sent Molly out on her own to "test the waters" i.e. see what the snow was like - she just stood at the door and looked at me like this

Love her white mask. Never seen that before on a Golden.

Love the snow, too. We haven't had that much here. Snow is so peaceful and calming, imo. :cloud9:

Hi Dracko... the white "mask" comes with age. Molly is quite a dark red golden so it is a bit more pronounced but lots of goldens seem to get white in the face as they age.

Yes, snow is very serene... just not when the wind is also howling like it's been here today. I love it when it is just big lofty flakes gently falling, or the lovely "lull after the storm" like when you wake up to fresh fallen snow and it muffles and makes everything look soft.... like a big :2huggers: for the earth:D

Hee, Hee, I think Molly and Chloe should meet some day.... it would be heart melting Golden love-fest!!:cloud9::cloud9:

:offtopic:I never knew my Chloe :rip: when she was a puppy (I adopted her at 6yrs old) so it's kinda like getting to live her puppyhood through your Chloe :cloud9::lovestruck:

We had some minor difficulties in the first snow we had the other day... baby cuz got lost a few times:eek:. You'll notice that we've gone back to BIG cuz... less snow sticks to him and he's a bit easier to see:D

Hi Dracko... the white "mask" comes with age.

That's why I love older goldens , specially the darker ones , their white maks shows more than the blond ones.

I love that kind of snow (ONLY on week ends though!) Molly seemed to have so much fun jumping to get the snowflakes , you go Molly ! :lovestruck:
