Snow Dogs and Yeti's
As predicted today started with loads and loads of snow; in same ways we were quite lucky here because there was about 5-6 inches which was not too bad as it turned out because on the news there was talk of snow drifts up to 14 feet deep on the high ground up in the north of
Anyway I ventured out into it to hunt for the yeti, which is a big critter but
is also white making it tricky to find in a white environment. I set some traps
which were baited with ice cream, which the dog insisted was the one food a
yeti cant resist, I have to say I am very sceptical because yeti’s come from
the Himalayas and I really cant believe it is possible for an ice cream van to
get up into the snow to sell yeti’s ice cream. But the dog insists they have
very good 4X4’s out in that part of the world. England
Interestingly a couple of hours later when I checked the yeti traps there was no ice cream left, the dog said yeti’s are very clever which is why they are seldom seen and never caught, but I also noticed chocolate sauce on the dogs nose. The dog insisted that all the ice cream was covered in chocolate sauce as this was a yeti favourite (and the dogs), very suspicious indeed.
Anyway as the day progressed we sort of got bored waiting for the Yeti and made a huge snow dog to deter zombies and other things like man eating snowmen or ice fish. Unfortunately I sort of ran out of time to finish the snow dog so it is unable to chase zombies but it does have glowing eyes so that should help a bit. And I unfortunately had to dig loads of paths for the cats who are not keen on snow, well not snow that is the same depth as they are high and they are rubbish at using a snow shovel. Other things night have happened but I cant really remember, although I do recollect chasing a shrew this morning, it is not great weather for a shrew.
