“… to be soggy… fa, la, la, la, la… ” After all the drought we’ve had through most of the year, I had forgotten what it was like to be really wet and soggy! We ended up with around 8 inches of snow, and it’s mostly melted everywhere. But today we get rain! So everywhere you walk it’s wintery, mushy, soggy, muddy and downright messy. I really love the Yellow Lab’s coat color, at times almost as white as the snow… but I never thought what it would look like after he really gets dirty! He loves to get messy of course… and after playing outside for a while, he is covered in muddy streaks everywhere. I think I need to incorporate that same sense of abandon in my life. I forgot to get a muddy picture of him though. Otherwise, it’s time for last-minute shopping, cleaning and getting ready for Christmas. We probably won’t have snow on Christmas day this year, but maybe sunny and a little warmer. That sounds just fine.
The Yellow Lab just loves the snow… we brought him home as an 8-week old puppy last year just before winter, so he “grew up” playing in the snow. He’ll run and run, burying his nose in it, and chasing snowballs forever. Sometimes he even finds one!
