|Sights locked, jaws open!|
|Abby with some nice ear flappage!|
|Snow! Glorious snow!|
Those pictures were taken Monday, and we actually got quite a bit more snow on Tuesday, but Mom had some meeting at work that kept her at the office until 5:30pm, and by the time she got home at 6:30pm, it was "Too Dark for Frisbee". Mom, if you got us glow-in-the-dark frisbees and a camera that took good low-light action shots, it would NEVER be "too dark for frisbee"! Just saying....
By Wednesday, it had started to warm up, and our snow had started to melt.
|"Outta my way, Abs! This frisbee is MINE!"|
|Yep, I've got some spring in my leggies!|
|And Abby has A LOT of spring in her leggies!|
|Yep, life is awesome!|
As the week went on, the weather got nicer and nicer, and while it meant our snow was receding, we still had plenty of frisbee funballs times. Although with the short days, by the time Mom gets home (even on days without meetings), our afternoon frisbee time is in 'low light' according to Mom's camera, so forgive the blurry shots.
|Jaws of Doom!|
|She really is a long dog!|
|"Frisbee hoarding? Who? Me? Naw. I'm just 'protecting' them! Heehee!"|
|I think Abby is working on some of the basic routines for the ballet Doodle Lake.|
|Me? I'm working on my Kung-Fu.|
|And some basic frisbee catches.|
|Piece o' cake!|
|The breeze was kicking up a bit at times, so Abby often found herself tied in knots as she twisted around to catch the frisbees.|
|And I got in long stretches for the catch!|
The weather was also so perfect that we went on some long walkies! (Although our Saturday morning walkie was cut short because there were two moosies in the driveway of a house we walk by, and as we got closer, they started to get interested in us, and we barked hello, and so of course the moosies got more interested, and Mom thought maybe we should turn around before we tried to engage the moosies in a game of bitey-face. Mom can be a serious kill-joy at times.) But Saturday afternoon we went on a Super Long Walkie!
|Mom has very long leggies. And two blobs on strings. Heehee!|
|"It's all uphill from here!"|
|"Mom. This is the easement for the oil pipeline. Seriously not interesting, so we're not cooperating for a photo."|
|"Heheh. You really thought we were going to cooperate? You're so funny, Mom!"|
And, of course, there was more frisbee time when we weren't on walkies or dodging moosies.
|If you look closely, you'll notice Mom had just brushed Abby's teeth! Heehee!|
|"C'mon, everybody! Let's do the twist!"|
|Did I mention that Abby is a long-torso-ed doggie?|
|More stretching catches!|
|Is it me, or does Abby look like she's been caught up in the Rapture? Heehee!|
|Oooh! Apparently I was caught up in the Rapture, too! Heehee!|
|I don't think Abby actually caught this one, but it is a now-classic pose.|
|See, I'm not as long-torso-ed as Abby.|
|Yep, she does this All The Time.|
|And I do this All The Time!|
|Seriously, this girl has springs for legs!|
|Abby is hot, so I have to get a bath? Explain this to me.|
|Mom, do my wet hairs make my schnozz look big?|
Luckily, by the time we were washed and dried and brushed, Mom decided she was "too tired" to cut our hairs this weekend. So I am looking quite floofy at the moment. Mom says "shaggy" but I say floofy!
|"Who you calling "shaggy"? I'm most definitely floofy!"|
Finally, we'd like to give a shout out to all the veterans of all our US armed forces - thank you for all you have done so we can enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of frisbees!
