It Was Like Saturday

It started out as a Weekday
No plans to hike or play,
Christmas is over so no gifts to open
Just a normal day at
Canine Country Club
My Best Walking buddies
in the whole wide world
called My Vickie and asked
if I could go Snow-shoeing with them. 
Me, just me, Not My Vickie
But Me
Of course she said yes so off
The snow was deep and I took
the lead.  No trail, no signs, no
directions, just
"Go Bert Go"
Alex and Kory did a pretty
good job keeping up with me
as I lead them deep into the hills.
Sometimes I would get
snowballs in my feet
and we had to stop while I
let them work out.
Kory would tell me to relax
and I would lay down in that
wonderful beautiful snow
and he would gently work on
my feet until I was comfortable to
take the lead again.
By the time we were thru and
made it back to the car
I was completely and totally done in....
and happy as a fish in water.
I barely made it in to the back
seat before I fell fast asleep.
Ah the sleep of the pure at heart.
Thank you Kory and Alex
Thank you Thank you Thank you.
My Vickie woke me up
about an hour after we got back
and told me that I had another
package in the Mail.
Wow, I am the luckiest
dog alive.  I was so excited, especially
when I saw where it was from.
Austria.  It was from Austria
and that could only mean one thing.
I got a package from Charlotte
What could this mean?
Does she still think of me?
Could she still have feelings for me?
And the answer to all my questions
will have to wait until tomorrow.
I am off to bed.......

What a paw-some day!

Enzo and I have never been in snow, even though our male human regularlly drives about four hours in winter to strap long things on his feet and ski.

Have a great new year,

Bert it looked like you were making snow angels while they got the snow out of your paws. You sure had a fun time and are such a tease about your pressie from Charlotte.


Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Hiya Bert - that looks like a great adventure....if not a bit cold.... it reminds me of what I go through when I get nasty burs in my feets on my walks.

I am excited to see what is in your gift pawcel!
