Dashing Through the Snow

It's not a lot of dashing, and it's just a little snow, but Zoe still had fun!  Poor Xander is recovering from a paw injury, so he wasn't interested in running about with her.  He started limping last Saturday, and visited the vet on Monday.  Xrays showed that he broke a toe at some point in the past, and it healed back crooked.  Fortunately, no breaks were found now, so we're hoping it's just a sprain, and he'll be playing with Zoe again very soon.

This weekend is holiday crunch time.  There are presents to wrap, cookies to bake, and house guests for which to prepare.  My planned strategy is to keep it low-stress and enjoy the season.  Repeat after me, "Everything does NOT have to be PERFECT!"  We'll see how I do with that.  

Happy Holidays!!

Please join Dogs Rock on The Saturday Pet Blogger Hop, graciously hosted by Life With DogsTwo Little Cavaliers, and Confessions of the Plume.  Happy weekend!!


  1. Sure looks like fun! Happy Holidays. Scritches to the hounds!!!

  2. Wow beautiful photos! This is the first year I am managing *touch wood* low stress!

  3. Oh Zoe, I don't think it's possible that you could be any cuter! You still run like a puppy and that snow on your nose is just adorable!

  4. Hope poor Xander has a speedy recovery and can play tag with Zoe when it snows again!
    That's a lovely video of Zoe playing in the snow!
    Happy holidays!!!

  5. Just stop by from the blog hop!!

    haha, well look at them go. Greyhounds and whippets sure are very graceful looking dogs, even when leaping and running through snow!

  6. Can Zoe Zoom or what?! Great photos of the pack :)

    Crossin paws for Xander's toe to heal up fast!

    Happy Holidays!

  14. Hi Y'all!

    Just stopped to see what y'all are barkin' and waggin' about. Seems like all the Humans are goin' to be busy the next couple of weeks. Take time to relax and enjoy and be Merry.

    Merry Christmas,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  15. Everybody is playing in the snow but me! It's raining in L.A. and I dont' like the rain. I want to play in the snow with you guys! You look like you are having a lot of fun!

    Your pal,


  16. Oh no...poor Xander! Hope he feels better soon! That is a GREAT snuggle photo :)

  17. I love the photo with the snow on the tip of the dogs nose!!

  18. Wishing a quick recovery for Xander and for a stress-free enjoyable holiday season for everyone.
    Love from bella and Ollie.

  19. That is a good philosophy, because it seldom is perfect anyhow.
    Hope Xander is back to running around soon.

  20. Dogs love the snow, Looks like yours had great fun.

  21. Everything does NOT have to be perfect!

    That is totally enough snow to count. Yay! I hope Xander heals up with little trouble!

  22. K sends Xander her very best wishes. We know all about paw and toe injuries here. I understand from my vet that they're most common in greyhounds and whippets... I hope that Xander heals VERY fast.

    I love your photos. I can just stare at each one for a long time, soaking it up. Thanks for sharing.

  23. Those darn foot injuries. I guess with active dogs, it's always a problem. We're having fun this week, I'll be baking and I know I'll have lots of helpers and taster volunteers.

    Merry Christmas to you and your whole pack.
