sledding in central park

ed's been out of town for a bit so me and the furry man held down the fort in his absence. despite the cold, i'm happiest when i can move around outside and the 12" of snow accumulated in central park over the weekend made it much more pleasant.

musher's dog wax

i opted for the poodle cut at the groomer's (the snow slop situation is getting out of hand) and came back to find that my dog has fingers. DISTURBING. and oh hey.... musher's wax is excellent for long snow walks. also, don't make fun of the fingers because i've done it enough already for the both of us. seƱor ladyfinger's self-confidence cannot be broken.

took myself to bloomingdale's if only for the frozen yogurt at 40 carrots...

and met up with my dear friend sabrina for minestrone and leek tarts at salumeria rosi.

sam's excitement for the snow brings me pure joy and i watched as parent's face's expressed the same joy for their first time sledders. of course i woke up and did it again on sunday, muffins and coffee awaiting my return.

ps: snow in central park last year.

I wonder if I do my three dogs fingers they will show like those (I have 3 bichon malteses) :) That fur coat is wonderfully treated, Sam is a lucky boy. Thank you for the tip on the wax, I'll follow it for sure in the Netherlands there is more ice then snow, so its a match made in heaven. I find it funny when they are in the snow for hours, like little kids, shivering all the time but thrilling to be there. Greetings from Amsterdam

Hi miss Becca. I have a questio regarding Paw wax. Is Sam leaving any paw prints around the house or couch?

Thank you for your aswer!

rebecca said...

nuz-
good question! i rub his paws down in the hallway of our building on our way out the door. the wax is clear but a bit greasy and would likely stain the furniture.

Jen said...

Whoa, dog fingers! My dog is the same with snow, he loves it but absolutely hates rain.

i lol'd at Sam Wiggen's fingers to the point that my bf wondered what was going on. Dogs in the snow is just about the greatest entertainment ever.
