I'm going to share a few more fun photos from the past year. As a unrepentant procrastinator, I am still working on some gifts that involve photos so I've been going over my library again.
We had a very big snow storm in February, and I might have forgotten about it without the photos. Shyla kept getting stuck in various places where she needed to rest before she tried to get to me through unpacked snow. She actually appeared to snooze during this break!
Then she'd get back to work, trying to wend her way through the snow to get to me.
After getting stuck, she'd sometimes find a burst of energy to barrel over the snow. Even at the time, I was reveling in her pure athleticism. What a strong dog she is! And what an amazing spirit she has!
She was like a snowdog all day long.
Overnight, a crust formed on the snow, and Shyla adopted new strategy for crossing unpacked snow - flight!
In retrospect, it was a very fun storm, with lots of snow play. The only downside was that it was too much snow for R's elbow so he didn't get to play very much in it. I think he'll be having surgery before too long, and I hope it makes him as good as new!
