Thank goodness for snow

Today, I laughed 'till it hurt for the first time in recent memory...

Two of my best friends from work and I tried to teach my dog how to pull one of us across the snow on an empty horse feed bag.  We had a harness, and a sleigh-bell collar, and lots of enthusiasm, but the dog didn't do very well, even headed downhill.  I suppose there's a reason why it takes 8 dogs to pull one person in a dog sled?

But even through the biting cold, the sun was shining, the air was clean, and we all had a great time.  Especially when the dog tripped up my friend into a snow bank and licked his face for 3 minutes straight while we howled with laughter in the snow.

So "yeay" to maybe becoming a dog person after all, and to good friends, and to winter wonderlands, and to laughing so hard your face hurts and you can no longer move your arms.

LOL. That second photo = love.

How'd you come up with the name Avi for your dog?

He he, I love that shot. I name all my animals after vodkas (it's the lush in me, I suppose), so the dog is Pravda. But when he was a puppy, he was just too cute for such a name, so we came up with Avi. Everyone thinks I named him that 'cause it's Hebrew for "beloved", and that works for me, too!
