“You stay out there, I stay in here. We’ll get along better that way.”- Matilda, 2013

I shot this last May when we were in our temporary home in the hills after moving from the ranch. May 1st we had a gazillion inches of snow on the ground. Well, it felt like a gazillion. It was up to my waist in some spots. Anyway, this is Bella, the Pyrenees watch dog. She watches over the chickens, ducks, and goats of this homestead and she could not figure out why there was a cat inside and why couldn’t she get to it through that glass. It took a couple weeks for Bella to stop throwing herself against the glass barking trying to get Matilda.
And before you get all “awe poor Bella, she should be let inside from the cold.” This girl has a coat on her thicker than anything you can buy in a sporting goods store and she would be so miserable if she had to be indoors. She frolics through the snow like it’s not even there. She’s happiest in cold temps. Plus, she has to a job to do.

Feels like we are getting a zillion inches of snow today. It’s been snowing since early morning, before the sun came up, and it’s still coming down.

Happy Tilda Tuesday everyone. She is under the covers and will most likely not come out until June. 🙂

    Bella you are a sweetie and we are happy you are happy outside, but we are with Tilda on this one. Our Baby Boy loves outside but all the rest of us prefer inside with our blankets. Hugs and nose kisses
