Early Winter Fun!

Dogs just love the snow! It's cold and wet, but when it snows they run around like puppies, all silly and crazy, eating it and rolling around in it. We had our first significant snowfall yesterday, and the dogs were so happy. I took the opportunity to snap some photos of the fun.


Blaze and Cole,

Blaze, Eros, and Cole, chomping on the drainage tube...

Cole, with his piece of tubing...

Eros, checking to see how close Cole is! (he's got a piece of plastic drainage tube in his mouth, who knew these tubes would make such fun dog toys?)

Eros, and Cole,

This is a great action shot, Cole is chasing Eros around the yard to try and grab the plastic tube, dogs love this game!

Cole and Blaze, best buddies,

Tess and Sara, they prefer to watch the fun from the sidelines!

Eros - Wild Puppy in Training

Eros has been training in the sport of Schutzhund since he was 5 months old. I try to train regularly, but with my super busy life, we are a little behind where we should be . Eros is almost ready for his BH test, the Begleithunde. Roughly translated as the "traffic steady companion dog". This test is the preliminary test required for the dog to move on to SchH titles. The dog must pass both an obedience routine and a temperament test. We are planning to enter a trial in the spring.

Who knew a plastic drainage tube would make such a great dog toy?

What a cutie. :-)

In the spring of this year..... He has filled out considerably since then....

Eros is always happy...
