By the time we went on our morning walk, we already had about an inch on the ground. It started out pretty much like every other walk -
- except for the lovely snow falling all around!!!
Maggie is sporting a Conservative blue leash and I am wearing pink, by the way. Anyway ... the snow made things way more fun, and THEN, when we got down to the entrance to the Hudson Trail, Dad said we should go left instead of right!
|"We haven't gone this way in a long time!"|
"I know! Isn't this great, Mags?!?"
It was so wonderful! We love going that way!
|"Just when I thought this walk couldn't get any better!"|
"You said it, Mags!"
There were squirrels running everywhere - it was so great! Here we are, spotting one at Mom's favorite part of the trail:
We had all kinds of options when we got to the end of that part of the Hudson Trail - and I was thrilled with the way Mom and Dad chose to go! Not only was it the longer route, but we got to go down my favorite hill!!!
|That's Dad and Mags out front;|
Mom and I brought up the rear
It's hard to see Maggie up there, isn't it? Anyway, I LOVE that hill (check the second to last photo at this link - hey! almost the same route we took today!) - and walking it in snow makes it even more fun!
We walked up another trail by the water tower:
|Mom likes our colors with the snow and the prairie grasses|
As you can see, I have quite a bit of snow gathered on my fur. We stopped to shake it off every now and then, but I had let some build up. Because our coats are so thick, it doesn't melt - it just sits there until we clear it off -- and underneath our coats, we're totally dry! No toweling off needed or anything when we get home! Anyway ... Mom wanted another photo of us against the grasses and we stopped to oblige.
|"Hey, Cammie? Do you know what?"|
"What is it, little one?"
Oh, I know what you think she was going to do, but if you're thinking what I think you're thinking, you're thinking the wrong thing!
|"I love you, Cammie!"|
"Oh, my Maggie. I love you, too."
Hey. We all have our schmoopy moments!
|"OK, let's roll."|
"Yep. Let's do this!"
It was such a great walk - I wish all of you could have joined us! And the really great news is that it still hasn't stopped!
I hope all of you are having a wonderful weekend!
