At last, it feels a little more like a Canadian winter! We had a significant snow fall just recently and watching Ray out in the back garden was like watching a child exploring snow for the first time.
He, true to form, only wanted to play for a short while and satisfied that need with a few Frisbee fetches. After that, he found a really interesting scent under the snow and tracked it all over the garden (with no obvious conclusion!).
Hi Guys – This is Ray. This Post was my idea as Noodle, and a number of other canine “blog buddies”, have no idea what snow is about. Now’s the time to listen-up and focus (yes I know that can be difficult depending on what else is going on in your home … but at least try).
First of all, snow is really fun stuff ‘cos you can jump in it; bite it; run through it; sit in it, and it doesn’t hurt! If you get a chance to run back into your home without getting your paws wiped, then you leave footprints all over the place. So cool!
What’s really good though, is all the stuff that is hidden beneath it! As you know, our noses can track down anything remotely edible and, as human noses are kind of close to useless, my Mom and Dad have no idea and therefore do not keep giving me that “leave it!” speech. Playing around in our garden, the scents are usually of creatures that have passed through but, when out on my walks, it gets really exciting because you just never know what is awaiting my inquisitive tongue (probably quickly followed by my teeth!).
Imagine being outside, and knowing that so many “presents” are just waiting for you under the snow! I love my snowy walks, although it seems to be a little more stressful for Mom and Dad. Humans… go figure! Woof! Ray.
