Well, I have to admit, I didn't realize what a WORKOUT it is to play in the snow with your dog! I think he felt it too because he fast asleep as I type this. Those of you who follow my posts know how much I love going to the park when no one else is there. So, we seized the opportunity and headed out this morning hoping to have a quiet day at the park. There were a few kids out on sleds, but you can see, much of the snow was unbroken when we got there. We had a great chance to practice fetch and a few recalls.
The snow was deep! Even Max didn't have his normal speed. I was also surprised at how hard it was for him to find his ball, especially at the beginning. He is normally terrific at scenting it out, but the snow definitely fooled him a couple of times! It took him awhile to figure out that it might get buried if I threw it, and he would have to dig it out!
We had a lot of fun though, and I am looking forward to going out again this evening!
