Springing towards spring conditions

Home from the weekend. Can't believe how much snow melted in just one week! Where'd my snow go? Still a good time though. A beautiful sunset as we drove home through the Sacramento Valley this eve.
Crashed out for the ride home. Have my new seatbelt on, with lots of wiggle room.
Ah, the beautiful mountains...
The sun was out this weekend, and so were the outdoor chairs and hanging out.
Snowy ground turned back to dirt.
I found things to snaggle...of course!
Delicious branches.
And, then there's the eve bbq's with beautiful backdrop. Still CHILLY with mountain breezes.
Mom always needs a hug.
Sunday morning... some younger camper neighbors, out to give me breakfast greetings!!
Had to stop by the bbq guys on my morning walkie.
Out for a lap around the meadow with mom and dad. A bit on the crunchy snow side, but still a good time. Did a bit of "skijoring" with mom. I'm pretty FAST!
Season's not over yet, but with the warm temps, there are definitely signs of melting...bye bye giant icicles!
Home safe again. Warm and cozy. Have a wonderful new week pals!


  1. Wow, you have some great pictures there! My favorite is Sierra sleeping in the car :) You guys are probably a bit sad that spring is here, but some of us are actually a bit giddy, lol.

  2. Hey there Sierra!
    Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend! BUT it still looks so....
    We are shivering just looking at that ice!
    Keep warm.
    ps...Can't believe how you have grown. You have a true adult Golden look to you!

  3. That big hug photo is the best.

    Watch out for those glaciers coming off the roof! Yikes!


  4. Woof! Woof! It's officially SPRING. Glad you had another FUN SNOW adventures. You sure look so exhausted ... LOVE your car sleeping photo. So what did the bbq guys gave you ... Yummy! Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  5. Sorry Sierra but we're really ready for Spring! All except speedbump, she'd like for it to stay perpetual winter.
    Love the pics,,sleepy dog and huggy dog are my favorites.

  6. Hi Sierra,

    You got to go cross country skiing? Wow! hat fun and camping too!

    We ski too, we just got some new wood floors and now Riley is skiing all over the house!

    Riley and Star.

  7. Mom says Old Man Winter is leaving here (I never really met him I don't think) but he must still be coming to visit you! Enjoy the snows before he leaves!

  8. GREAT pix, Sierra! I think that one of you hugging your mom is the BEST! I love hugs.

  9. Sierra Rose, you are truly a dog for all seasons! Enjoy spring, it's officially coming now!

    I loved the one-ear-flipped-back picture. Such personality you have!

  10. I'm SNOW sighing here!

    Thanks fur sharing those pawesome pikhs!

    It is a pawesome rainy day here but Mom is being mean and not letting me sit out in it!

    She's SO no fun!

    Happy Monday!

  11. Seatbelt? How did you get SR to do that?

  12. Looks like you had another adventurous weekend! You look pretty tired on the ride home. Hope you still have some snow for the next trip - ours is all gone :(


  13. Hi Sierra, wonderful pics although we are glad to see signs of Spring. Those icicles were very impressive.
    Our favourite pic today was you giving your mom a hug - we know these moms can be high maintainence but you are doing a great job!
    The Sacramento Valley is something we have only heard of in movies!!!
    You look very well behaved in the car - we are showing that picture again to Bailey!

  14. WOW great pics! Looks like you had a fun time!

  15. Sorry, we are behind! You went camping? That's awesome! Looks like it was a ton of fun! And that is one huge icicle formation - hope it doesn't fall on any one as it melts!

  16. I love the photo of you sacked out in your seatbelt. So cute!!!!

    I saw the La Fuma chairs out - it truly must have been springlike. We used to backcountry ski in that area into late May... but we'd have to hike high into the mountains to find the snow.

    Glad that you had a fun weekend. Keep giving mom lots of hugs!

  17. Those giant icicles are awesome! Your mom takes great pictures, Sierra Rose!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  18. Great pictures that show what a great time you had!! Our snow in Virginia is gone, but I'm afraid to say that too loud, I might jinx it and cause it to return!! Hope your week is off to a good start!

  19. Sierra, thank you so much for taking us camping and cross country skiing. I loved it. Great photos

  20. Such really fantastic photos you have for today's post - simply gorgeous!!! It sounds like you had another fantastic weekend. We had snow on Saturday and it was so much fun runing and playing in it. But today the warm sun came back and 8 inches of beautiful white fluff is all gone:( But Mom says the pretty flowers and green grass and blossoming trees will be here soon.

    Have a great week, Sierra Rose.

  21. I can't believe all of our fun is melting. I am sure you will miss the snow as much as me. I think we were born to be snow dogs.

    Wags and kisses,

  22. Your car sleeping picture is adorable, and the picture of your bbq with friends looks like a slice 'o heaven to me!

  23. Great views! You are so lucky and you still have some snow! I need to come visit.

    love & wags,

  24. Hi, Sierra Rose!
    I can see you had a pawesome weekend!
    Kisses and hugs

  25. Another great weekend in Sierra's world! Never say never to more snow...our foot from the weekend is already melted, but word has it that another wave is on the way for tomorrow. We can only hope!

  26. Say, did you get any nom noms from the BBQ guy? Looks like he was about to throw you something to eat.
    So nice that you get to go camping all the time. Over here they closed all the campsites from Nov-mid Apr. No fun!

    Sam & June

  27. I suppose it's happy and sad to have the snow season coming to a close. What will you do when there's no snow, Sierra?! Your mom must have a lot of other fun trips up her sleeve!


I love hearing from you!
