Welcome to week 52 of our Professional Pet Photography Blog Circle. I’m loving the topic this week! It’s “Favorite Song”.
I do have quite a few songs that I love! The way the weather has been the last few weeks with winter in March, one specific song comes to mind, and that’s Wintertime by Steve Miller Band written in the late 1970’s. I grew up listening to the Steve Miller Band in the 80’s and 90’s (i was born in 74′) and love so many of their songs ~ Classic Rock!
We’ve been through two big snowstorms this past week. Last week I missed out posting a blog as we were without electricity for a few days. It was starting to get a little chilly in the house, but we were fortunate it didn’t get under 50 degrees – almost!
We lost quite a few trees in our backyard with the first storm. When I let Kota outside when the storm had cleared up, she started to sprint around the yard, jumping over the down trees like it was an agility obstacle course! Having a snow dog makes “winter time” so enjoyable! And suddenly the trees became a non-issue 🙂 Dogs sure know how to make the best of things! I ran indoors to grab the camera just in time….
The lyrics of Wintertime:
In the winter time
when all the leaves are brown
and the wind blows (So Chilled)
and the birds have all flown
for the sum—–mer—-er
I’m callin’, hear me callin’
Hear me cal—l—in’
(Click above on the song title to hear the song and take you back to some Steve Miller Band!!!)
The next storm brought us 25 inches of snow in a short period of time. We were grateful to not lose electricity this round! The snow was beautiful and so much fun! This is what winter should be like!
Here is an image the morning after the snowfall. Where’s Kota?
The next image was taken while i was lying in a path of snow with all the snow in the foreground:
Here is an image of Kota looking for the birds in the bird feeder above. She does a nice job at scaring them away!
And one more of Kota running on her outdoor path through the snow – now that’s a happy dog!
Along with this song that went along with my story best, two other songs that I love are “winter” themed: Life in a Northern Town by Dream Academy and Colder Weather by Zac Brown Band – the song titles fit perfect but the lyrics tell a very different story.
