Picture Challenge - January 4


We had quite the snow here on Christmas, and yes, I'm a wee bit behind in posting about Leo's reaction to his first real snow. He and I had spent Christmas down at my folks' and while they had some flurries, there really wasn't anything that stuck. However, when we got back to Casa ABBA there was about 4 inches on the ground and my back patio was a sheet of ice. When we first arrived home and Leo went outside to do his bidness, he hit that sheet of ice and went flying across it into the snow. He then sprung across the snow with no idea what it was, landed back on the patio and sniffed at it (above picture), then refused to go out in it. Later in the evening when I knew he HAD to go, I literally picked his 40 pound butt up, steadied myself on the ice, and threw his out there blocking his way back into the house until he went. The next morning, and this is when I wish I had my camera at the ready, he went out into the snow and started racing around in it attacking it....sadly within a couple of hours with the temperatures rising and the sun hitting it the snow melted and turned the yard into one big muddy mess....
