Yesterday, I was bit by a mosquito, the no-see-ums were out in full force and flowers were blooming.
Today I walked out and saw this.
Well Helloooo Winter..
While I was admiring the snow and wondering how that tree in the back manages to stay at a 45 degree angle I heard a loud roar.
Oh no! it’s the Abominable Snow Dog…
Grrrrrr..Look at those teeth, those claws!!!
I”ll distract him with my boot..
Run Away! Run Away!!
Wait a minute, come back.
Apparently he only wants to Conga.
Bum bum bum bum bum chhh, bum bum bum bum bum chhh….
Meanwhile back at the ranch, Zeus pondered life’s oddities and wondered why his brain was cold.
And here’s to warmer days on the South Dakota Plains or wherever I was.
This is an acrylic, 4×6 inches.

Your dogs are funny. No school today up here, the first one of the school year. A whole 2 inches fell in the night and people just didn’t know what to do. I love your painting (as always).
What! Canadians didn’t go to school for two inches of snow! You people are slacking up there.
I had a dog name brutus that looks a lot like your dog, he loved the snow. Your photos are great.
He’s so cute!

Great playful doggie and nice little painting!
I like your painting. Your little dog is hilarious. Zeus looks very serious. Maybe he wants to have some fun in the snow too?
Thank you! Zeus was having a thinking day. He’s usually the goofy one. He couldn’t seem to figure out how his ears turned inside out.
Simply lovely and charming!
Thank you so much!
