I try to be positive, but I am just plain sick of winter. Ella, on the other hand, is not. Winter is just as fun and exciting as any other season. It is hard to turn her down when she begs for a walk. Even when it is flat 0 degrees outside. Today I gave in to her enthusiasm, put on my snowshoes, and we took a hike.
Ella was overjoyed! She took full advantage of our time together. As the saying goes, "She lived like someone left the gate open." Can you say happy dog? My grouchy despise winter disposition quickly dissipated. Maybe all this snow isn't so bad.
After all, the views were very pretty. If you look closely you can see Orman Dam. I also noticed nestled among the hills is a little farm. I did observe that there doesn't seem to be any snow on the prairie.
But then again, the snow does give Ella an nice frosty sheen. She looks so elegant.
The sky was a vivid blue and the wind wasn't blowing for a change.
Despite the cold, I quickly warmed up while snowshoeing. The woods were quiet. There were no tracks. It was like Ella and I had the world to ourselves.
An enthusiastic dog paired with a panoramic view is a nice way to spend the day.
