I hope everyone is in high spirits.
Yesterday while Doug worked on our present for Nate and Amanda, Brett and I took the pack to dog park. Everyone but Gizmo that is. (Even with Evelyn’s jacket on him Giz is not a fan of being outside when it’s cold and yesterday was in the low 50′s and damp.)
Lazer had never been to dog park before so we weren’t sure what to expect from him.
We used to take Kiwi, who was also a Siberian. I always expected her to break into a run and just keep running and running when she was there; but she never did. She always just trotted, usually staying near the pond. She just loved to swim.
But as soon as Lazer got inside the gate he took off like a shot, running as fast as he could and within a few seconds was over a hundred feet away. The twins tried to keep up with him at first but in short order decided that instead their time was better spent treeing squirrels. Daisy went off by herself making new dog friends.
Every few minutes Lazer would come within perhaps 30′ of Brett and I, then make a sharp turn and haul paws off in the other direction. He ran non-stop for over 20 minutes and for all that time was the fastest dog there, till… two greyhounds showed up.
One of them saw Lazer and took off, bypassing him in no time.
Well he couldn’t have that. So off he went in hot pursuit, running as fast as he could in attempt to surpass the greyhound. But it was not to be. That greyhound was a blur and by now Lazer had already been running for 30 minutes. I’d never seen a greyhound run before, not up close and personal anyway. They are crazy fast.
After that Lazer went for a swim then decided to come to Brett and me. Eventually we got everyone back in the car. When we got home they took some serious dog naps.
It was a good day.
So today is Christmas Eve and soon I’ll be starting to wrap presents.
But before I do, I wanted to share something sweet.
Well I think it’s sweet anyway.
Either way, I think he’s adorable; and if he kept showing up at our house somehow, some way I’d figure out a way to keep him.
So I guess that’s it for now.
I hope everyone has a fabulous Christmas and enjoyed at least one of my Christmas funnies.
Stay warm and safe kiddos.
Ho ho ho.
