Christmas Roadtrip 2009 - Yosemite (Part 2)

I LOVE YOSEMITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Especially in the winter. There's this pawsome thing called SNOW! Gosh, i wish I could teleport some snow to my friends in Singapore to let them have some fun too.

Oh, first up, Happy Barkday to my Grandpa! He is now 8.86 dog years old. =)

Back to the story.

Here I am at the hotel room. There's a sliding door that's supposed to go directly to the yard but that was snowed in! So Daddy struggled to open the sliding door to let me have my first touch of snow. Yah, i suddenly realised it was DEEEEEEP!

The next thing I found out, it tastes better than an icecube!

And whoa....its C-c-c-cold! I had to shake off the snow on my body.

So very quickly I was put into the nice wooly jacket that aunty E (Hammer's mummy) bought for my Xmas present. So useful!

And off we went! Driving through the South Gate towards Yosemite Valley. We stopped for beautiful photos too. (Mummy: Can see Half Dome in the background)

Here I am trying to pawfect my wilderness doggy look...

And then....WE ARRIVED!!! SNOW!!! Yumyum....slurp slurp.

Here's naughty Daddy demo-ing to me how deep the snow is....
(Daddy: Ready.......)

DROP! I was so stuck that Daddy had to help me out of that one. Nice soft landing!

Watch how I run around in the snow. Its hard work!

Mummy says i always look like I'm trying to eat my way out of the snow. =P Slurp slurp!

Chomp Chomp! =D

Its so soft! So fun!

Here's what my tracks in the snow look like (after photo enhancement). U can see why its SO TIRING to run around in the snow...but i love it!

Here Daddy even simulated a "blizzard" for me! =)

Whew, tired. Short break.

We had to go back that day...but the NEXT DAY, we were back in there once again!
First, here's my improved wilderness doggie look. What do you think?

Heh, here's the fouled up one. =P

This is our 2010 family portrait!

Once back in the snow, I went berserk!!!! (Mummy: For a good laugh, click on the photo below and zoom in on Benny's face. Its priceless!)

Gotta eat as much of it as I can!

Gotta smear it all over my body!

More more!

Ah....that's good!

Why is Mummy carrying me????? Put me down!

Hee....well, that's it for my entry about the snow. Did i mention how much I LOVE SNOW!!!!!!!!!

Daddy, please bring me back here again....please please please? I'll be a good good boy all year!

One must consume and roll around in the snow to become one with the snow. He is the snow! Looks like a fun time was had by all!

Love the wild look on Benny's face while running.

Tania wants to know why Benny has ALL the fun and whether she can come visit next Christmas !

'tis the time of year to give thanks for our blessings and angels like you. Don't know where Miss Hippity Hips would be without you.

Hope you'll make your pilgrimage back here to check on her!!
