It’s been pretty cold here by our standards. No snow, but plenty of ice. Wally and LuLu still need their fun and exercise, though, so on Sunday we took them to their familiar and favorite stompin’ grounds for a good run. Imagine their surprise when they charged out into the water expecting a good dunk and instead. . .
No worries. This is just rain water that fills depressions in the landscape. It’s only about knee deep on a Golden Retriever. In the photo below Wally is puzzling over why he can’t seem to pick up the stick. It was frozen into the ice. He did eventually get it out with a lot of determination.
The ice really took them by surprise, slip sliding and breaking through it in spots, and they didn’t quite know what to think of it. Typical of their happy-go-lucky natures, they came to see it as a great new adventure. LuLu made off with this big chunk and chewed it into bits.
A little ice can’t get in the way of Wally and LuLu’s good time.
I hope you’re staying warm, wherever you are. Enjoy your week!
