Thawed Out

Today I was refreshed by spending time with dogs who are taking in this Arctic Blast with open arms, well maybe not arms, you get the point. These dogs couldn't have been happier to dig, roll, sniff, run, walk and head dunk in the snow.

Welcome to the blog Shadow. I know I say this most of the time, so I will say it again. This dog is awesome. Being a lab we headed for the run area. First thing she did was roll in the fresh snow. Just rollin' rollin' rollin'. On our walk, which she walked like an angel, Shadow would just stop, dig her head in the snow and roll. Frickin' Awesome!

Roscoe. Another friend of the snow. We worked on retrieving and he was quite successful on selective throws. Soon enough it will be second nature. Roscoe is a strong pup and walks nicely on the leash when he is away from all the distractions. Roscoe thinks the snow on the nose look is in. I agree.

Jack the Lab. Once Jack got outside, he was one happy dog. Jack is a mover and a shaker. Played some quick fetch. Enjoyed every minute. High spirited.

Prince did it. Puffy did it. Why can't The Dude? The Dude is now referred to as Duke. If that helps him get a home, more power to you Dude. Lets face it - The Dude needs a palace quick style. Yes I will still call him The Dude. More fitting in my mind. Help! I am falling for this dog.

I used to look at (my dog) Smokey and think, 'If you were a little smarter, you could tell me what you were thinking,' and he'd look at me like he was saying, 'If you were a little smarter, I wouldn't have to'

  1. That's a hysterical quote - Also, I think you should adopt the Dude. He would love to live with you and have you as his Momma!!!

  2. Don't you think The Dude and Marley just sounds good together?
