Farful is my sweet old girl. She really is the funniest of the bunch (and the most human like)… during the summer she is slow and pokey and has really been starting to show her age more and more. She just saunters along with a “ho hum” Eeyore attitude and not too much really excites her. Farful has never been a fetch dog… when you throw a ball or a toy and ask her to go and get it she just looks at you like “You are the dumb one who threw it… you go and get it!!!” Don’t get me wrong though she will never pass up a good game of tug-a-war.
But she literally transforms into a puppy again with the first snow fall!!! She LOVES the snow so much (and I guess if I had the amount of fur she did I probably would too)… the very first thing she does when she runs out and realizes it has snowed is lay right down in it with pure joy… even before she has gone to the washroom she has to just lay in the snow first :)
She rolls in it, buries her face in it, eats it… when you take her to a big field with deep snow she is in her heaven and will run and leap through it like she has never seen it before in her life. She will literally run through the snow with her nose buried in it so when she does stop and lift her head to look at you it is just a white face with two brown eyes sticking out :)
So you could just imagine the joy and excitement she has that we have had our first snowfall this year. In this picture she was rolling around on her back while I was taking shots and just happened to stop for a second to look at me and I luckily got this shot!!! She then proceeded to lay on her side and dig at the snow like when Homer Simpson lays on his side and “walks” around in circles. It just brings me so much joy to see her so happy!!!! I can’t wait to get some good shots of her in the deep snow when it gets here :)
