Snow day!

We ended up with around 12 or so inches here in Gurnee which is in Northern Illinois. I'm about four miles from Lake Michigan so we got a lot of lake effect snow. The pugs actually love to play in it. Here they are from the left, Georige, Aoife, Clancy and Molly. :-)

Today is the calm after the storm - it's so bright and blue outside it hurts the eyes.

The pugs look so cute in the snow! So did you get a snow day from work?? From what I hear you all are pretty tough about snow out there. As opposed to here -- we're wimps. lol! No school here because of the snow! And I just heard from my daughter -- her college is closed for the snow too!

Oh, those little pug faces melt my heart! I'd love to scoop them all up and hug them silly. How wonderful that they like the snow. My girl doesn't go out except for necessities, though she still expects a walk and is quite unhappy to find the snow is still there when she has her leash on. No walk for us today though, we have about 25 inches on the ground and high winds. Stay warm and have fun stitching!

So sweet!! I was thinking of you and your furbabies the other day when dh and I were watching the Eukanuba dog show. :)

The kids are adorable. George needs a little more camera training so he is looking in the same direction as the other three. I am having a work at home day today. I will be posting in a bit. Hopefully, I will get some stitching done today.

Just LOVE those furbabies. Neither my pug Loocie nor my foster Eema likes the snow!
Pug hugs :)

What a charming gaggle of pugs, they are so happy in the photo. I live in Russia and to the snow we are used to:) But my pugs do not love the snow with them so difficult to walk in the winter. Now I have another Belgian Griffon too, that's who likes to have fun in the snow:)

Margie, the kids are adorable, as usual! Now tell me, which 3 are the cool ones?

The pups are adorable! Looks like they're having fun in the snow. We got the same storm as you, but only ended up with about six inches - just enough to keep the kids home from school.

This comment is from Leah: "Awww! Wook at de coot widdle puppies {accompanied by a high pitched squeal at the end}!!!" They do look so cute! I love pugs... the way their foreheads crinkle up makes their faces so expressive. Great pic!
