Bring On The Snow

snowdog.jpg

Well, all the snow we’ve gotten just recently certainly has

added a degree of difficulty to snowshoeing.  That’s fine by

me though, cuz that’s what it’s all about.  The deeper the

snow, the better.   I just wish it would last longer, like

maybe till about May.   I could do without the bitter cold,

but I’ll take all the snow I can get.  Besides, we need it very

badly here, because our lakes and rivers were very low this

past year.   We had a very dry summer and a pitifully small

amount of snow last winter, so needless to say, we’ve got

some catching up to do.

My dog goes “cuckoo for coco-puffs” in the snow, in fact he

seems to think it snows just for him, but he’s having a harder

time too, with the deeper snow.   He starts out running around

like crazy, jumping around in the snow, then pretty soon he’s

trying to catch a break, walking behind me in my trail, which

if fine except that he walks too close and ends up walking on the

tails of my snowshoes.   Yeah, things are never boring with

Axl around.  He’s one of the best friends I’ve ever had, and if

there’s one thing I’ve learned in this life it’s that you simply

cannot put a price on the companionship of a good dog.

    Your dog truly enjoys the snow!
    My dogs think that I personally put the snow outside just for them to play
    in. It’s always so much fun when they see they first snowfall. The joy in their
    eyes makes my day.
