Our dog, Sunny, hasn’t been getting as much exercise as he should. If I take a walk on our treadmill, he just watches.

Of course, Sunny goes outside, but he doesn’t run around by himself in his fenced yard.

Today I was able to take Sunny for a walk down the road. The icy road and shoulder had melted yesterday and today. It was 48 degrees here.

We both enjoyed our outing.

Sunny kept looking for a way over the plowed snow. He never found anything that suited him so he stayed close to the road and me–he didn’t want to get stuck in deep snow again. When that happened to him a while back he panicked, thrashing to get out.

Today was a much better walk for both of us.

A snowy dog

Sunny loves the snow. With new flakes falling, he comes in covered with a blanket of white.

I get a kick out of his antics, except when he comes inside and shakes the snow off before I can towel him off. I guess he wants to share the snow with me.

Sunny is good company. He stays close to me, going with me from room to room in the house. Of course, he’s always up for a treat, which I provide–but not too much.

“Good, Sunny Boy!”

It’s snowing

We’re not having a blizzard, but it is snowing. So far, it’s a gentle snow. There’s no wind blowing it around. So as a snowstorm goes this is a pleasant one.

I was amazed by the amount of snow that fell today….and is still falling.

I took Sunny outside just to check out the amount together. These are two photos I manage to take before heading back inside.

Sunny’s ready to go back inside the house.

Sunny is standing on the edge of our driveway. I think we’ve gotten enough snow, but it’s still falling.

Hopefully, it will be over soon.

I shoveled a little around the door. I’m sure our neighbor will snowblow here after the snow stops. No use starting while it’s still snowing.
