Babies? Snow. Snow? Babies.

1 Feb

This is how I introduced the dogs to snow on their own turf. In plate form. Of course they naturally thought it was food. Dogs think everything is food.

(They’d eat US if they could. But they can’t. So they just keep licking us to get the taste.)

Looked so good I made myself a snowball, guava flavoured.

Holy crap! I just spelled flavored with a “u.” I’M BECOMING CANADIAN!!!

    How cute! I would have loved to see them walking in it, lol.

    We love those babies! They are so darn cute! And we like your exotic Canadian snow cone!

    LOL re: your spelling. That actually looks good. You know, years back my Grandma told me they would bring clean snow in and pour molasses or honey over it and it was a great treat for them. How was yours?

    Your babies are cuties. Our dogs love to jump in snow. We don’t have any here in Southern Cali, as you know. Enjoy that true northern winter you and Beth are having.

      I knew it!

      A true northern winter is Winnipeg in February 😉 The west coast gets snow rarely, and it’s quickly washed away by the rains. -40 C with a windchill is a true northern winter 🙂

    Welcome to the Great Dark North side. We’re happy to have you, eh?

    How did you flavour your snow?

    Love your Canadian spelling! Now if my iPhone would figure it out already…

    • jeannie cave February 2, 2012 at 2:00 am #

      That is correct English.
      Have your babies got little Ugg Boots and Anoraks?

  10. Betty February 2, 2012 at 12:47 am #


    I’m so proud 🙂

  11. MM February 2, 2012 at 2:07 am #

    I’m guessing the advice for yellow snow doesn’t apply to the orange stuff, looks good:)

  12. Claudia February 2, 2012 at 2:42 am #

    Oh no!!! Don’t go all Canadian on us!!!!
    The girls got so big. I can’t get over it. And that was a great idea with bringing the snow in on a dish!
    Your creation was a tad big scary to me but it is early in NJ right now!!!!
    Love your new show (had to throw that in here). So GOOD to see you back on TV.

    hahahaha Jorge y a los perros no se les ha congelado la lengua?? lol In spain we have a polar cold wave, the weather is like Siberia.

  14. Jeff February 2, 2012 at 4:27 am #

    My dogs have always loved their snow tunnels. Make one for your pups if you have a pile of snow big enough in your back yard.

  15. Jessica February 2, 2012 at 6:52 am #

    Have they been out in it yet???…..our chihuahua would just leap leap leap…..and then she’d come in and bury herself in our “fresh out of the dryer” laundry

    Next thing you know, you will be writing cheques, eating poutine, watching Hockey Night in Canada, and saying ‘eh’ at the end of all your sentences. 🙂

  17. Caitlin February 2, 2012 at 7:50 am #

    cute dogs? check. delicious-looking canadian-flavo(u)red guava snow? check.
    but i need to know where you got that bowl! it’s so…modern.

  18. jennY February 2, 2012 at 8:48 am #

    wait did you make ice cream from snow?? 😉

  19. Tena February 2, 2012 at 9:07 am #

    Are you gonna be speaking French next? lol Was the snow ball good?

  20. snowspirit February 2, 2012 at 9:14 am #

    We would be EVER so proud to have you join the ranks of us Canadians/Canadiens!

    Our Bernese Mountain dog, Sawyer, lives for snow…eats, inhales & rolls in it…get’s it from me! I’m sure your babies will adjust to the white stuff in no time.

    Bienvenue et bonne journée!

  21. Alicia B February 2, 2012 at 10:57 am #

    Didn’t your Mamma teach you not to eat yellow snow? LOL. The pups are so cute, thanks for sharing all their adventures with us. It’s aboot time. (ha, the best Canadian accent I can do, LOL!)

  22. Gem February 2, 2012 at 11:05 am #

    Soooo…I guessing you live in that rare part of Canada that has no pollution. Snow’s dirty.

  23. Donna Siano February 2, 2012 at 11:36 am #

    Your so funny!! I really look forward to seeing what your up to. I hope that was clean snow you were eating. Oh I like your picture in the background. Thanks for being so down to earth.

  24. Jen February 2, 2012 at 1:37 pm #

    Personally I hope Vancouver doesn’t see any more snow this year, but if it does, here is a tres Canadien treat to try: heat maple syrup on the stove to soft ball on a candy thermometer. Pour/drizzle over a cookie sheet full of fresh, clean snow. Wait 30 seconds or so, then use Popsicle sticks (or spoon handles, or whatever) to twirl the syrup onto. Voila – maple taffy!

  25. llisa February 2, 2012 at 2:31 pm #

    Snowscream! …or so we called it (yelled it) growing up in Ohio. Good stuff… EH?
    We love YOU in any flavour Jorge 🙂
    I’m loving Alcatraz. We make it a Friday night double feature w/Fringe at my house.
    …and next week …WALKING DEAD RETURNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I’m a wee bit excited)

  26. KJ February 2, 2012 at 5:06 pm #

    You’ll really be Canadian when you call the letter “z” “zed”. That freaks me out every time I hear it!

  27. Jenn February 2, 2012 at 7:22 pm #

    Of course you spelled it “flavoured”, because that is how it is spelled, silly. Welcome to the Commonwealth of Nations, my friend.(What, you think our “Canadian” spelling is only taught in this country??)

    I have to say I think giving a plate of snow to your dogs was inspired. That would be a great introductory tool for any young pup, and I will remember it for our next dog.

  28. The Better Half February 3, 2012 at 8:47 am #

    As a Canadian, I would say the transformation looks very good on you. But please.. don’t eat the yellow snow.. especially the dark yellow snow.

    The transformation will be complete after you’ve had poutine in Quebec, a donair in Nova Scotia and Screech and kissed the cod in Newfoundland. Please continue.

  29. Jeff February 3, 2012 at 9:51 am #

    Don’t forget that “center” is now “centre”.

  30. Marilyn February 3, 2012 at 1:31 pm #

    Those babies are ADORABLE! How cool.

    Loving you in “Alcatraz”. SO glad you are back on TV – you were sorely missed.

    And – thanks again for sharing so much of your life – beyond cool.

    • TikiKrissy February 3, 2012 at 8:03 pm #

      I really love your blue plate and white dish. You and/or Beth have good taste in housewares!

  31. triplep220 February 4, 2012 at 1:37 am #

    They thought it was food? To be fair to the dogs, you did put the snow in a dish.

  32. Carl Meserve February 4, 2012 at 4:24 am #

    One of us…One of us…One of us…One of us…

    Jorge (a.k.a. Dude),

    It’s about time! Now you can enjoy a true Canadian treat. Go to where they make fresh maple syrup and if they have fresh snow you can pour some of the thick maple syrup on the snow and enjoy a truly Canadian frozen treat.

    P.S. avoid yellow snow as your babies have beaten you to it!!

  34. Maureen B. Keane February 4, 2012 at 9:47 pm #

    Snow is not pure water. Water vapor in the air condenses around particulate matter (bacteria, pollutants, dirt) and when ice crystals form from the water that matter is trapped in the snow flakes. While it didn’t kill you (obviously) it is not a good habit to get into either. To find out what else is in the snow where you are, place a meal sized amount on a white paper towel and see what is left after it melts.

    Love the babies meeting snow that way.

    Was not really sure that I ought to link you to the Urban Dictionary on this one, but yeah….;-)

  36. Jennifer B February 5, 2012 at 9:08 am #

    I love your babies!! I’ve always felt my chis are just tasting me too! 🙂

  37. Jackie Denney February 5, 2012 at 11:35 am #

    some of my favorite people are Canaderians..

  38. Karie Russell February 6, 2012 at 8:52 pm #

    I moved back to the US after spending a year in Australia as an exchange student, and the teachers jumped all over me for that ‘u’.
