True to the old saying, March came in like a lion with one (hopefully) last glimpse of winter.

The pups enjoyed the snow, but I think we’re all ready for spring

But Mother Nature’s not the only one with lions in her employ…

The Lion of March has nothing on these guys

But as you know, the natives have been getting restless lately and begun to hunt each other for sport.Rhodesian Ridgeback, lion, lion hound, lion dog, marking our territory

If there is one face that sums up our experience stuck inside with Penny the past two weeks, this is it

But we have good news. Penny’s sumo-thong-diaper wearing days are over! (cue the parade music) To be safe we’re still keeping Penny on-leash for another couple days, but later this week we’ll make our triumphant return to the beach.  Can’t wait to run these lions ragged and have them sleep like lambs again.

Comments for March Comes in Like a Lion(hound)

  1. You made it! Woo-hoo. Stay warm and safe this week and enjoy the beach lion romp. If it’s any consolation, we have a storm forecast for tomorrow. Winter is being very stubborn about going gently into the night!

  2. That’s great news! I’m sure Penny will be as happy as you are to get back to the beach again. 🙂 We got a really good snowfall yesterday, woke up to ice-covered everything today, and are having more flurries now. Winter’s not giving up easily!

  3. yes, that’s a great reason to wear your lion wigs… it keeps your ears warm too :o)

    They make the best lions! Penny will definitely be a wild child when you turn her loose!

  5. coastingnz says:

    oh dear – I think they both looked a little perplexed at accommodating your lion fettish there Will lol – Penny very much has a “what the” look on her face and Eko is an “I’m going to get you back for this Will” look lol

  6. YAY – I’m sure Penny’s glad her days of thong-dom are over too AND all of you will be happy when Spring finally breaks loose and the beach will actually be SAND instead of SNOW!

    It won’t be long until the ivy sprouts on the walls of Wrigley.

    I just picked myself up off the floor after seeing these photographs of Penny and Eko! OMG, these are hilarious! Oh wait, I just fell off my chair again from laughing! But in all seriousness, I am ready for Spring over here too! It snowed all day here on Sunday and I am ready to wave a white flag in surrender. I am officially cancelling my membership to Winter!

  9. Misaki says:

    BOL BOL loving the lion look!
    Am super relieved that the house arrest is soon to be over xx

  10. T&S says:

    Funny! Like Beauty (Eko) and the Beast (Penny) 🙂

  11. Sage says:

    OMD, I love the lion look!! A beach trip sounds like fun, but without those darn ice pellets. ❄️ Hoping for sunny days for you all!!

  12. paws2smile says:

    Haha fantastic shots!

    We enjoyed a dog beach Sunday in the rain yesterday – not many pups on the beach except Rhodesians and Vizslas. Says a lot about those breeds, right 🙂

    Also have you seen pictures by the German photographer, Hannah Meinhardt ∙ Fotografie? She has a couple on her Facebook page that made me think of Eko and Penny, especially the one from February 10th!

  14. I would buy that album. Just sayin’.

  15. Crack me up!!! You lions are the cutest, so glad you ditched the diaper Penny!

  16. And their signature piece is ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight” – right? Glad Penny is out of jail…and I bet Eko will be too!

  17. Whee are sure Penny will be furry excited to get back to the beach!

  18. cdog5 says:

    Oh my gosh those pups are adorable, Will (I know, I keep saying that, but still …)! I think even the dogs are ready for a nip of warm weather … which supposedly is on the way. 🙂
