A few inches of snowfall over the past weekend, left Sherman outstanding in the cold.
However, being a Saint Bernard, he delighted in it.
The elder Saint Bernard is a real poser, and I took advantage of his prowess to snap several photos against the snowy backdrop.
In one photo it looked like he was watching over our homestead.
More than likely, he was watching my parents' house waiting for someone to come out and pet him.
His curiosity over an old pitcher pump that has been in the yard since he was born, prompted several pictures.
He of course nailed the modeling thing down pat and struck a pose beside the pump.
I posted several photos of Sherman on a Saint Bernard forum on Facebook.
He of course was lavished with praise for his handsomeness.
Instead of the internet fame, Sherman would rather have had the in-person attention and pets.
Perhaps, Sherman could teach him a thing or two about being a model.
To me this was the perfect snow. It fell softly and slowly outlining bare tree branches as it piled up. It was unlike the blowing vortex of flakes over Christmas that were driven by winds up to 50 mph. As I walked our daily trek, I couldn't help but exclaim to myself, "How beautiful." Despite the panting of a curious canine or two, the woods were silent.
Snowflakes clustered atop some common burdock burrs created a slight spectacle. Whether or not the snow will stick aroundt is up for Mother Nature to decide. Short-term forecasts show a warming trend with rain instead of snow. However, these forecasts like the weather are up in the air.
