We finally got a break in our frigid temperatures last week and we’ve been able to spend more time outside having fun in the snow! When we’re outside, beagle Cricket is all business – it’s all ball play all the time. Luke plays ball some, but he often has other things on his mind. He’s usually keeping an eye around the yard watching for intruders (there’s been a lot of squirrel intruders around since a lot of our snow melted, and he even saw four deer walking up the road yesterday morning).
You might think that would keep him busy, but Luke is an opportunist and never misses a trick. Regular readers know that Luke has a penchant for stealing my gloves or mittens, and he doesn’t make any exceptions just because my hands might be cold. When I fumbled getting my gloves on when coming out the door, he was right there ready to take advantage:
I will let him play with my gloves until he starts chewing on them, then I have to get them back (nice warm gloves are not cheap!). Please excuse the bumbling of the camera person in the video, I’m not yet good at juggling camera, ball, and gloves at the same time….you may have noticed that I had dropped my other glove by the time we were done!
What do your dogs like to do out in the snow?
