The Duo Romps on Saturday

I had both halves of the Duo for a short snowshoe hike on our cement-like snow this morning. It was still snowing when we started our hike.
The Duo is incredibly happy whenever they have off-leash time together outdoors.  It's hard to contain their enthusiasm.
 My best hope of keeping things calm is to do frequent recalls and some boring stuff like stays.
But most of all, they want to play with each other. This morning, I couldn't bear to try very hard to stop them. The reason for stopping them is the possibility of tweaking R's bad elbow. But, I made the same choice for him as I make for myself all the time, and I let him have some fun despite the worry of injury.
It's amazing the ferocious faces that the Duo makes while they play. They were having SO much fun!
They make me smile with their joyful and good-natured romping. A takedown....
And, in an instant, R was up again...
As the photos show, we had a wonderful time outdoors together this morning, despite the lousy snow conditions. I gave R a dose of anti-inflammatory when we arrived home, and he seems like he feels no worse than usual.
I'm so glad that I let him run and play with his sister. I'd want the same thing, if I were him!


  1. What fun. MOM has made the same decision for me. I love being out there so much. She just can't take it away from me completely. It is clear that R and Shyla have a very special bond. One that makes MOM and me smile real big.

  2. Such good companions! That's how me and Stanley are and we really go nuts in the snow!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  3. They are so cute!! They look like they're having a blast!

  4. What great photos, and even more importantly, what a great mom you are!

  5. We're glad you let him play, too. We just love making those vicious faces when we play and racing around is so much fun! We hope he doesn't have any after affects. We could just tell how much fun they were having!

  6. so darn cute! such great rompers!

  8. I love to watch these two pups carrying on together. Those killer faces give me a huge laugh.

  11. What a wonderful series! I met a therapy dog last week who is a CHOCOLATE LAB!! She's pretty young and totally reminded me of Shyla!! What a good girl!

  12. I can't believe you still have so much snow - yikes! Looks like it didn't stop the duo from having a ton of fun!
