We went out for one last romp in the deep stuff last week before the melting began. It was the middle of a weekday, rather cold and windy, so we went to Alimagnet Dog Park hoping it would be pretty empty. Our guess was right, as there were a couple dogs there, but they left shortly after we arrived. It was our own private dog park for a good half hour, and we had lots of fun.
Mom takes off our leashes and lets us go, but we always go off the same direction and together to discover what is going on at the park. We enjoy walking together, there is safety in numbers in case we encounter any unfriendly dogs. The trails around the perimeter were nicely packed down, but stray off the path, and you were in the deep stuff!
Bailie, the family air scenting hound, stopped to take in the pleasant breeze. Her nose was searching for the smell of squirrels, but she was not able to get any.
We were walking around the park perimeter, enjoying ourselves when Mom decided to do a reversal in direction. She called us, but only I came running. Can you see my determination? Sometimes she plays these tricks on us to make sure we are keeping an eye on her at all times.
A romp in the deep stuff wouldn’t be complete with out some silliness in the form of wrestling.
For some reason, Bailie was off on her own a lot, but I stuck pretty close to my mom. I don’t want to lose her, unless, of course, a critter came by that I needed to chase. Walking along, enjoying the day makes me real happy, can you tell?
After a while, we got off the main trail and decided to cross the frozen pond. Guess what? That snow was super deep. Look! Even Miss Bailie was up to her belly in the snow! Someone, please call us a tow truck!
Oh, never mind. I’m small, but I am a powerhouse! I’ll just propel myself out of the deep stuff. Bailie can follow in my paw tracks.
Boy, we sure had a good time going for a romp in the deep stuff. It is a good thing we took the time to do that, because this week we have disgusting, cold, pouring rain! We could still get more snow, you never know, but the really good snow is now destroyed. A quick fun fact to end our snow post: The only month that has never had snow in Minnesota is July. The latest snow was June 4, 1038, and the earliest was August 31, 1949.
Because we are super thankful for all the fun snow this winter, we are joining Brian’s Home Blog in the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop! Visit some other blogs to see what they are thankful for.
