It’s winter. So it gets dark early. And, it’s cold. We have snow on the ground and temps in the 20s. But the Doodles can’t spend all day inside. And, certainly our back yard is interesting for only so long.
So … we have figured out how to walk in the dark and the snow. First off, me. I got myself a bright color jacket and a head lamp. Yes! I can see and I be seen!
But Lilly? Oh my dear little Lilly … if I slip a smidge … she jumps on me. If I slow down to walk on ice slowly, she stops and watches me. She generally walks directly to my left. Right next to me, constantly looking up at me to see how I am doing. It’s her worry wart side, like she is saying to me, “We really shouldn’t be out here. It’s dark. It’s icy. You might slip again. How are you doing? Are you okay?” I admit, I appreciate her attention.
Dash would walk for miles, he is so happy on a walk–any time of day, any conditions. He bounces like Tigger. The picture is bad quality — phone, darkness and the guy won’t slow down to pose!
And in the end, we all three love bounding up the steps to the house. The lights shine bright and welcoming. And we walk in to the warm house and snuggle up until the next time!
