Some of the dogs were getting restless, so we decided to shovel our way to the kennel to let a few out for some fun in the snow. We had to put the Jack russel (Rivet) back in the house after we almost lost him in the snow. He is white and the snow was higher than his shoulders. It was a tough go , but he finally found the trail we had shoveled to the "back 40". The dogs (5 of 12) that we let run had a lot of fun chasing each other and rolling around in the snow. Activities included a playful rumble, a race around the yard...several times, and burying faces in the snow. Whew.. what a tiring hour. For us I mean. They went back to their houses and we retired to the house for some more coffee. Who said it was not gong to snow anyway? 10 inches and still climbing.
