Since it was so insanely warm on Friday, a ton of snow melted. You could actually see grass! But when it got cold again, that meant the big puddles from the melted snow froze over. The dog park looked like a skating rink, and the paths were pretty much all ice. It was a little dangerous!
|We spent most of the time at the park trying not to slip.|
|It looks like we're on the shore of a pond!|
Oscar didn't have too much trouble getting around, though he slipped once and a bigger dog knocked him over another time while playing a little too enthusiastically. I had a mishap of my own, when a mid-sized dog knocked me over while running around, even though it was on a leash. The owner didn't even apologize...probably because she was busy talking on her cell phone. Sigh. Not impressed!
All is well though, and Oscar had a good (though cold) day of exercise and socialization at the dog park. When we got home, I threw one of his favourite squeaky toys for him to fetch and he just stood there looking at it from across the room. Now he's snuggled up in his crate and can't be bothered to move from there. Smart dog.
|Notice the open door...|
but Oscar's only interested in sleeping!
