Minnow Muses About This Thing Called Snow...
Posted by Pia
Martha's mini pal Minnow may be a mere 4 pounds, but she has plenty to say about the wonders of winter...
1 "Hey, who said this Señorita couldn't handle an east coast winter?"
2 "It's all about wearing layers... Olive, are you listening? This is important information..."
3 "And choosing the right boots. Oooh, which to wear... so many shoes, so little time..."
4 "My scarf goes best with the yellow ones... kind of a lemon-lime theme, and neons are in...but, then again...."
5 "Mum can I wear the pretty hat that that nice Glue Squad lady sent you?"
6 "Oooh Mummy...I must not forget my handbag... it has my lipstick and pennies..."
7 "Pops, perhaps I should have a little snack before we venture out?...Just thinking ahead..."
8 "Hey guys, wait up...count me in to build a snow dog!"
9 Above: Devoted sister Luna clears a path for Minnow in the tall snow!
11 Luna, "Perhaps I should taste a bit...I'm awfully parched from all this hard work."
12 "Look at this guys! Apparently our buddy Missy Chow loves the snow too! Perhaps we should invite her over to build a snow dog..."
13 "Mummy, check out what my friends Jo Jo and Mugsy got in the mail! A holiday card from the White House! It features Bo galavanting in the snow!"
14 "Hmmm... ours must have gotten lost in the mail... Pops, are you sure you gave Bo the right mailing address?"
15 "How mysterious...this is like those crop circles that emerge in the fields..."
16 Minnow ponders, "I wonder if the squirrels and chipmunks wear snow boots in the winter...to protect their cute little feet when they scurry across the branches..."
Be sure to check in next week as Minnow continues her musings on that fancy white fairy dust we humans call snow!
