Winter Wonders

As much as I lament the cold weather, today is especially beautiful. Snow falling and coating tree branches; flakes sticking to my eyelashes and the whole collection of them damping all sounds to make the outdoors soft and quiet. Excellent.

Buck is intently staring at three mallards paddling around the pond. If he weren't leashed, I guarantee he'd be bolting...but not through the pond. Probably around it. He's quite afraid of water. Odd, for lab-mix, you say? Buck's no ordinary dog. More on that later...

it is beautiful :) sometimes i need the reminder to stop and appreciate that. and what a cute pic of your pooch. mine like to romp in the snow... for about 3.5 minutes, come back in to escape the cold, fight in the living room, get kicked back outside, romp happily for 3.5 minutes... you get the picture.
