We got our first real snow of the season over the weekend. This year so far we have lucked out with lots of cold weather, and small snow events of about an inch since mid October. Finally we have some substantial snow to play around in!
After our morning walk, I went flying down the stairs, and leapt right off into the snow! I couldn’t wait to really race around in the white stuff.
Bailie was already outside, and she headed back towards me as soon as she saw I was ready to get the wild pants on! It’s impossible to hide our love of winter and snow!
The chase games started up. As usual, I was the one being chased, but I don’t mind. Sometimes it is more fun than being the chaser.
Bailie seems to be in top form for snow racing. I think, really hope, she never has any hip muscle issues again! The summer without playing was tough. Her furs are still growing back from the shaving.
There was a lot of back and forth, here and there, running around, sometimes just one of us. I may be short, but I can be speedy if I want to be.
Once and a while, I get my sassy pants back on. Someone has to tell Bailie a thing or two. I think she forgets I’m a lot smaller than she is. All the snowballs on my furs create a lot of drag too. Bailie gets snowballs, but not as many.
Within a few moments I was ready to attack the snowy yard once again…full speed ahead.
Occasional wrestling makes for a good break from running in the deep stuff. Somehow, Bailie really had the upper paw that day!
The good thing is, I never have to worry. Bailie would never hurt me, it is all just for fun and playtime.
And…in no time flat, we are back running around in the first real snow of the season!
We’re thankful for winter with lots of cold and snow, so we’re joining our friends at Brian’s Blog for their Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Visit some other blogs to see what they are thankful for.
