My Big Snowshoeing Adventure

My Lake Tahoe vacation was great! We stayed in a nice cozy cabin and my parents had lots of time to spend with me sitting on the couch, like this:

This weekend was the first time I had ever seen snow. It was kind of a bummer to walk on. Luckily I didn't have to do it very much because all the roads and sidewalks were plowed. Here's a video of me walking in the snow for the very first time. You can tell that I get about halfway and then try to turn around and go back.

Even though there was a bunch of snow on the ground, it wasn't that cold--only about 50 to 55 degrees. That is a bit chilly for a chihuahua though, so I wore my rainbow sweater while we were outside.

And speaking of outside, guess what I did! Snowshoeing!!! I got to ride like a baby kangaroo in a pouch that my Mommy carried. I had so much fun! Before we went out on our first snowshoe hike, we went to a boutique called Dog Dog Cat where they got me my very own...


They are shiny and RED, which is one of my signature colors (along with orange and yellow, of course). They block UV rays and feature interchangeable lenses. I was happy to wear them while I was riding in my pouch because the sun was so bright on the snow. I had such a good time snowshoeing that I want to do it again next year!

Bye for now,

Hi Poppy, I am glad to see that you are able to stand on your hind legs again. Congratulations.

You look very stylo in that doggles.


Mack said...

You are the most stylish chi ever!!!

I am jealous - I've never been on vacation before with my parents!

Oh holy CRAP, Pop-Drop! I totally love those pictures of you in your Doggles!!! My girl LOVES LOVES LOVES Doggles and wants to get me a pair SO BAD but she's afraid I'll scream like a adolescent girl when she puts them on me. You're so darn CUTE in them, though... I hope she doesn't see these pictures because she'll run out and get me a pair. *sigh* You look like a little baby kangaroo (joey?) hopping around in the snow and then perched up in your little pouch. I wish my girl was cool like your mom - I wouldn't mind riding around with her!

Hi, Poppy!
Every time I see you walking I feel happiness!
You look super cute with your doggles!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend!
Kisses and hugs

Tadpole said...

My girl said to tell you "THANK YOU" for the link to Dog Dog Cat, because she's going to order some stuff for me. *rolling eyes*

I see more clothes for me in the future. I hope not Doggles. Poor me.

You make those Doggles look great!

Petra said...

Poppy, you have so many adventures! I'm happy that you're had fun, even if walking in the snow was part of the weekend.

I LOVE the bright red doggles!

Randi said...

Hi Poppy! I've missed you! Finally my mom/secretary is getting around to visiting all my friends...I"M SO THRILLED TO SEE YOU WALKING GREAT AGAIN! I just knew you could do it!

I wonder if I could get a pouch like that...but I think it might break my mom's back...maybe they could haul me in a little red wagon instead & then I'd really have to get some red doggles!

Love & Licks,

You are such a fashion pooch! I never get goggles to go in the snow! I am so happy you had such a fun adventure!

Poppy, you are walking quite well in da snow. We really like your 'Doggles' they suit you to a 'T'. Your mom and dad are very good to you. We have never been snowshoeing, sounds as though you enjoyed it.

You look great on your hike. In the backpack with those great doggles. Some snow is ok but I'd rather pee on grass.


Clover said...

Poppy - that is the cutie-est picture ever! You look great in your new doggles. And it sounds like you had such a great trip!
I'm so happy about your progress - keep it up!
Love Clover xo
