Happy St. Patrick's Day
Shyla wore her St. Patty's Day bandana for our morning snowbike ride. It's been warm and sunny over the past week so there was even some green on the ground today!
Green moss and lichens also emerged from under the melting snow.
The weather was wildly unpredictable while we were on the trails this morning. After a sunny start, the snow started to fall. Shyla barked because she is Irish!
The snow stopped when we were on Hug Hill, and Shyla barked again because she is Irish!
Since "finding her voice", I've taught her to bark on command (she learned it in about 10 minutes - her doggy IQ is sky-high). She loves it! A great advantage to having her know the word "bark" is that it makes it easier to teach the word "quiet". Because I can ask her to bark whenever I want to, I can teach her that "quiet" means to stop barking. Very convenient!
R celebrated St. Patty's Day by taking his post-run snooze with his head on a green pillow. He looks angelic when he sleeps.
