Some dogs love bounding through the snow and wildly digging and burrowing in it. Our pug is not one of those dogs. Nickie will cautiously explore the snow, often looking back at us to let us know she’s not pleased. When Nickie comes back inside, she just stares wistfully at us like she’s begging us to make the snow go away.
Nickie likes to “hide” from us on the other side of the kitchen gate, and peek out from behind the bars. We think she is believes this makes her invisible, but it really just makes her look like she’s guilty of something.
Nickie was having a face off with her toy today. We’re pretty sure she was planning her attack strategy because she pounced on it a moment later and carried it off to her bed.
Nickie has a wide variety of toys to choose from for her playtime antics. Here, she has enthusiastically chosen the lion to engage in battle with her. She won, of course, and thus the lion was tamed.
It’s important to take some time in the morning to stretch and embrace the day. Nickie couldn’t agree more as she pauses luxuriously in her little spot of sunshine.
It’s another beautifully snowy day outside- perfect for tromping around out in the yard with Nickie. Let’s be honest, at this point in the winter, we could both use the exercise. Here we come, New Years’ resolutions of maybe finally achieving fitness!
Even when Nickie’s not licking the fridge, a toy, the floor, or someone’s leg, she’s still likely to be sticking her tongue out at something.
