Billie’s snow day!

A snow day for Billie!

A snow day for Billie!

We’ve had nothing but snow and more snow here for the last few days, which is SO unusual for Portland, Oregon and SO fun!  It’s not so much fun for our dogs, however, who’ve been stuck inside most of the time feeling housebound.

So I decided to invent a game. Snow soccer! Take one exercise ball, add two Shetland sheepdogs (Billie and Bonnie), toss everyone outside, and away we go. It was a HUGE hit, as you can see! Billie is convinced that the blue ball is a sheep, and happily herded it all over the yard for ages. I’m going to try and figure out how to upload a video in a few days so that you all can see the three of us at play…

      I agree — totally cute! But actually, Billie is a “she” — named after the famous jazz singer Billie Holiday. (Bonnie is officially “My Bonnie Valentine,” a great old song!)

    This may have been the cutest thing ever! My dog is a teacup poodle so she hates going outside when we even get snow. Texas Weather 😛
