Polar Bear Swimmin'!!!!!!!!!

Now every year on January 1st some crazy Pittsburghers jump into the Mon River and half freeze themselves in the interest of TRADITION. Nutso, huh?
OK dokie...So...the Terriers are startin' our own version of a Polar Bear Swim....as an experienced Lifeguard, I got the pool into position....(Nobody needs to bring up those rumors from last summer that I can't swim....SO NOT TRUE!....)

OHHHHHHHHH...that first plunge in is a bit chilly!!!!!!


Scruffy jumped right in...Stan seems a bit hesitant, the big Dale.




That might be cuz I snarled at him when he had the AUDICITY to grab my lifeguard dress in his stinky Dale teeth and drag me backwards 'cross the driveway. Big Oaf...(Mumsie threated to dump a shovel full of snow on his head like she did this mornin' to Scruffy for poop huntin'...actually that shovel full of snow applied to Scruffy's head was the first time he's EVER dropped one of his coveted stinky prizes...hahahahaha...but I digress...)


This polar bear swim stuff gives a whole new look to makeup and booty care...I sorta have that frozen look, huh????

I think your version of a polar bear swim makes more sense.
I was quite impressed with your snow swimming abilities.
My mum is giggling, but it is because she thinks you are so cute in your lifeguard vest.

Hee heee. What fun.

We tried to crack the ice on our ponds this week and hooman was freaking in case we fell through.

We will definitely show her this post and assure her Polar Bear swimming is much safer.

Darn, our pool got thrown away cause it had a hole in it. We would have loved to join you Lacie. We even have more fresh snow coming tonight! (Mama not happy about it though) Of course you could come here & we could jump into the koi pond, hehehehehe! Do you think Mumsie would let you?? We could have our own Terrier Polar Bear Pawty!

I like it. The frozen look is appropriate and perfect for this time of year. In the summer when you look back at these photos you will find them cool and refreshing.

You guys have a lot of snow yet. We only have ice or something new that I heard today on the news, "snowice".

Your polar bear swim looked like so much fun. I didn't think that Scurry would go in though. He is a lot braver than I thought. Wish I was there. With my thick fur, I wouldn't mind it at all. Water rolls right off it.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

pee ess Loved the photos.

Stanley said...

Pups, you look as crazy as ever, but I am intrigued by all of this polar bear talk.

I myself am very partial to the cold weather and all things water-related, so I might have to explore this further.

Of course, Lacie, the only thing that could detract from you beauty would be to pull that lifeguard outfit over your face! You're all cute & snow-kissed!

Goob love,
Stanley

Abby said...

Hi, Lacie...

That looks like fun...

It's a good look for you...

Abby xxxooo

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

What a great activity for a cold, snowy day! A few years ago, our mom's mom won a Harley Davidson and a trailer to pull it in at the Polar Bear Plunge in Lake Erie. Those peeps are totally insane! Lacie, you look very cute with your snow 'stache!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Maggie and Mitch said...

You are the most adventurous girl we know, Lacie! We bet that snow makes your face tingle!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

with love, Madison said...

They have those POLAR BEAR freaks in Chicago too ... can you imagine? We think it must kill your skin and crack your hair to jump into frozen water. We'll take a muddy kiddy pool in Florida anyday!

Mango said...

Lacie gal, watch out, too much face freezing and you will look like Joan Rivers.

Too bad I missed Stan dragging you around like a stuffie.

Tell Scruffman I said to back off on the poopcicles already.

Slobbers,
Mango
