A Snow Day With Benny

Bundle up folks, we're going to take Benny for a walk through the snow-covered paths. This walkway near Frank's place never sees a plow through winter so snow, ice, slush and puddles are all over the place depending on the season and the weather. As of today, most of the white stuff is in the process of doing some serious melting but on this day, we had a fresh snowfall and in some places, it was about as deep as Benny is tall. Come join us and see for yourself.

Benny waits patiently on a well-worn part of the path. Sometimes, his black spot is the only thing visible when he's far ahead in the snow.




benny snow huh
Are we not moving along quickly enough for you, bud?




ben snowy bridge and stairs3
Even though he knows we're not crossing the bridge, he tries to convince us that we're heading in that direction. At least he comes running back when I tell him we're not going that way.




puppy has to poop
Benny was rather restless for the last few minutes. He was having trouble finding a suitable place to do his thang. It looks like he knows where he wants to be...




puppy has to poop2
Yup, here's the spot.

Can you give a guy a little privacy, please?




puppy in snow
This was one time that I was not going to follow him out there to pick up after him. It was far enough off path that it wouldn't be a problem come the melt.




doggie in the snow
Back home again - Benny just doesn't get enough of snow play.




doggie in the snow5
Well, aren't you going to throw snowballs for me?

At the end of the day, the sun came out and our beautiful Benny finally settled in for a relaxing afternoon and evening. But the next day...

I hope you enjoyed our walk with Benny. Thanks for joining us.

OMG.....I was laughing sooooo hard when you got to the picture of poor Benny's head being all that was sticking out of the snow!!!! HILARIOUS!!! It looks like he is swimming!!! And the picture where he is asking if you aren't going to throw a snow ball!!! His little face is so frosty with snow!!! He is an adorable little guy, isn't he. I understand why you would love him!! I do, and I never met him! Thanks for taking us on the walk with you. I really did enjoy this post!

TSannie said...

Just love that doggy! Too funny him nearly buried to do his bidness.

DJan said...

I am always pleased to visit you and Benny. He's such an adorable dog, and he's such a character, it just shines through his funny face. Thanks for the Benny hit; it's made my day. :-)

TexWisGirl said...

benny is a STAR! i just love that little face! and when all that was visible was his little head... omg! :)

Anvilcloud said...

Great final photo. It seems like a lot of snow for down your way.

Sandi McBride said...

I loved this walk no end! We did not get the snow we normally do, so it was nice sharing yours by proxy...I have missed the walks in the snowy woods with the chappies...lovely job as usual...
hugs

Rosemary Aubut said...

Looks like someone had a really fun day!

~JarieLyn~ said...

I thoroughly enjoyed my walk with you and Benny. He looks like he had a great day in the snow. So adorable.

Linda said...

Benny is just the most active little dog. He never seems to get enough of any kind of play...especially if it deals with water in any form. The last photo is perfect. Of course, the "hurry-up" photo seems more true to life.

sage said...

Great photos--I always love watching my dog run in the snow... when he was younger he'd dig his nose in the snow and kick it up and snap at the snow as it falls. The dog also loves to catch popcorn!

She Who Carries Camera said...

that photo of him sticking his head up out of the snow is too frikkin funny!! he's gotta be a canadian dog to be able to do his thang in that much snow!

ellen abbott said...

Crazy little dog.

joeh said...

That was a fun pictoral story.

Linda said...

What a happy dog! Always a thrill to see Benny's adventures. I'd like to play in the snow like that, too. Unfortunately no real snow here this year, just a dusting one night. Maybe next year...

Betty Manousos said...

omg, omg hilary!
what a cutie!!
i just want to reach through the screen and give him a big hug!

adorable photos, too. thanks for sharing yet another walk with such beautiful scenery (and your pup) that makes me feel as if i'm there!

big hugs~

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

Ok seriously, his expressions are killing me! I absolutely adore the way he cocks his head and looks so quizzical. Love that cute boy!

Maggie May said...

What a sweet little chap that Benny is. Such an expressive face and I loved the one where he was relieving himself with just the head showing. How clever to get such privacy!

Daryl said...

he should be part of that group cold play

Red said...

Walks with you are always pleasant as you put a good story with your walk. Some how or other dogs really like snow. They love to plow through snow and you showed Benny right up to his neck.

Bob Bushell said...

I had a gorgeous day with Benny, thanks Hilary.

Linda said...

He looks so cute! The last two photos are just perfect, and I love the little bridge too.

Hilary said...

Roy would have NONE of that getting wet stuff.
Benny is adorable.

Frank Baron said...

He's a special lad. :)

Karen (formerly kcinnova) said...

Oh, Benny in all that snow! ♥

Indrani said...

Benny seems to have enjoyed thoroughly. What a great company you have.

ladyfi said...

That's a lot of snow!

Marianne said...

You know how to do snow in Ontario! Here we seize up when the white stuff strikes. Dog walking is such a great pleasure and Benny had lots of fun

Dianne said...

I love how he created his own privacy spot

he is so sweet and funny
thanks for all the photo, they make my day

Bimbimbie said...

I think there's an arctic fox beating in the heart of Benny he's fearless in the depths of that magical white stuff - definitely no snow bunny is he*!*

Loved seeing your captures in the previous post - the hunter and his starling and that scoop of ice cream roof - amazing.

Gayle said...

Love the snow pix. Brrrr. Benny, Benny, Benny, you are such a little charmer and always so darned kissable!

Mage said...

I really like that new picture of you. Nice portrait. :)

And I must confess that Bennie is the best of the best when it comes to being photogenic. Thanks so much for this chance to run in the snow with him.

Hena Tayeb said...

Benny is so cute..

Lisa Gordon said...

Awwww, Hilary, he is just precious, and he looks like he is having such a wonderful time out in the snow.

Wishing you a happy day!

June said...

What a tough, single-minded little guy! Oh. Right. JRT. :-)

Zuzana said...

Dear Hilary, I am sitting here chuckling, my oh my, Benny always puts me in the best of moods. Just look at that face, it has its own expression, so funny.
I bet he enjoyes those walks.;)
Love the light in your images. We are expecting tons of snow next week, not sure how I feel about it. To be honest I am so ready for spring now;)
Have a great weekend dear friend,
xoxo

Nina Bille said...

Daniel LaFrance said...

I believe Benny and our Molly have a lot in common. lol

Beautiful series! I can feel the love you have for dear Benny.

louciao said...

Normally I would not be too thrilled to see more snow...but with Benny in the mix, delight ensues.

missing moments said...

Hilary, loved this walk with you two. Benny so loves the snow! Awesome photos of the little guy.

photowannabe said...

Benny just has personality oozing out of every pore.
Love the shot of him finding his "spot".

Birdie said...

Your Benny posts are always a favourite of mine. He makes me laugh. :-)

Loved it all! Benny is sooooo adorable. Just don't tell Mr. Cheddar I said that. LOL

Happy Week Hilary.

Russell said...

Lots of fun photos of a GREAT dog!

The snow is certainly deep and fresh in these images. I liked the photo of the bridge and also the last one of Benny in the sunlight.

All are very good and certainly look very much like Canada! Today (Monday) we are getting snow again.

SandyCarlson said...

Benny is beautiful, to be sure! Great es.imag

Laura said...

could he possibly be cuter??? I don't think so!

Randall Cogburn said...

Wow, Benny looks like he has a SUPER blast in the snow. I don't think I've ever seen a dog like that, what breed is he? Your photo's are really great!! Keep it up!! :)

Kerry said...

Gosh Hilary. It really is winter there isn't it? My daughter, whose boyfriend is from Guelph, just spent 5 days with him on a frozen lake in Ontario. brrrrr.
