Snow Fetch!

Another gorgeous day enticed us out onto the Eau Claire River Trail today. The warmer weather is causing the fluffy snow to melt and compact, getting heavy and dense. Where Charlie would normally leap through snow drifts, she is now finding herself stuck.

It took her a minute to realize she wasn't going to be able to run top-speed through the woods, but rather than getting grumpy about it, she made a game!

After she found the perfect stick and bribed me with her cute brown eyes to throw it, she would dive into the wet snow, find the stick, and promptly re-bury it to dig up all over again; basically a two-for-one throw!

Here are some VIDEOS of Charlie playing Snow Fetch!

While the past two days have been fun and games, we're expecting a huge winter storm to dump another 8-12" of snow on Thursday. I'm not looking forward to shoveling or driving to work in the mess, but at least I have these funny videos to help me make it through another one of Mother Nature's jokes.

Keep smiling.
