Winter Ice Capades
Here it is December 10, and already we've had several storms that left icy patches on roads, sidewalks, and driveways. When I take Indy to the door he pauses as though to say, "Are you kidding me?" It takes some urging to get him outside. Then I watch as his feet slip and slide across the glaze on the back patio.
He takes care of his morning toilet, and looks at me. He's in a major hurry to get back inside. So he moves much faster. He reaches the patio and looks just like a cartoon dog, legs scrambling fast, but body going nowhere. I try not to laugh because I don't want to offend his pride any further.
Finally he makes it back inside, shakes himself, and runs circles around the couch, sure footed as a gazelle. He's a happy boy now!
Once again Indy has survived the Winter Ice Capade games.
