Finally Some Snow

February 8, 2013 in Kumo's Korner by Joe

We have had the strangest winter (I accidentally typed summer first). We’ve had 60′s in December, severe thunderstorms, lots of rain, and zero snow. We had a dusting here and there but the next day it would be 5o and raining again. Strange.


Finally last week we got some measurable snow and Kumo our dog who loves snow couldn’t have been happier. It would have been nice to have a white Christmas but better late than never I guess.

I didn’t get a good video of her enjoying the white stuff because I’m usually laughing my butt off at her. She has this thing with running, or rather bouncing through the snow and grabbing mouthfuls of snow at the same time.

I can only imagine what fun she would have in a foot or more of snow. Of course my luck she’d disappear in it and I’d have to notify the avalanche crew to find her.

Barry’s son and fiancé, mainly the fiancé fell in love with Kumo and has been after Barry’s son to let her get a “Kumo” dog.


I found one at a shelter last week that was absolutely adorable. Of course what “I need a home” puppy isn’t cute?! Well there are some pretty ugly dogs out there but this one had one of these faces that when you see it your heart instantly melts.  Kumo is a Westie mix of some kind and the one I found at a local shelter was a Maltese but looked just like Kumo minus the standing ears.  If the future daughter-in-law didn’t end up adopting him I have a strong feeling I wouldn’t have been able to resist snatching him up. Thankfully they adopted him  because our house isn’t even close to being ready for another pet yet. Even though I’d really love to get Kumo a brother or sister, maybe next year. Barry’s son and fiance brought him home yesturday, they named him Jax.
