It was cold and snowy already when we got up this morning. So, instead of walking Thor today, I hit the treadmill. When I walk the treadmill, I try to play fetch with Thor. His version of fetch is interesting. He thinks he can play tug with his ball sometimes. Most of the time he will bring his ball to me and drop it next to me. What makes me giggle sometimes is when he walks away and drops the ball while he is walking. This means I have to move from my spot to go get the ball. I walk the ball back to where I was before. I have decided he is helping me get more steps in. I do try to toss the ball above his head so he has to chase it (and run the length of the house). He prefers to jump up and catch it. None of my other dogs have ever been as interested in fetch. My golden retriever would run after the ball and come back without it. A lemon as far as a retriever. Thor, he will bring the ball to me when I am on the couch too. He will put it next me and walk away to where he can catch it. He waits for me to throw it. He is a character. Gotta love him.

Wishing you a blessed Sunday. Thanks for stopping by.

    Sounds like our little dog and playing fetch. She enjoys bringing the ball, drops it for us and barks if we try to pretend she isn't there. She too loves playing tug with the ball, and she sure has the jaws for tugging, and she is a little dog. This is the first dog in a long while that we have that enjoys playing, she will be two on the 30th this month. Some day as she gets older, she will prefer to not be as active.
    So you got more snow again, hope it wasn't much, and that what you have melts, to early for staying with a white ground yet.
    Have a great week.
