(Ok really it all melted the weekend after it started, but I'm never THAT caught up on my posts.)
After Darwn's epic snowman day, the snow slowed down but the next day an ice storm hit. So all our soft fluffy (sometimes slushy) snow, got topped with a layer of hard ice. It's not so bad walking down (and up) hills in snow... trying to do it on ice though was a bit nerve wracking. We ended up staying home from work that day and bundled up on the couch. Later in the afternoon as the frozen rain and snow stopped we took Darwin out for a walk.
There's a trail behind some of the houses/apartments near our place and we decided to check it out (I only go on it when Jason's with us 'cause I'm a chicken).
While we were out we decided to stop by the grocery store. Jason ran in while I waited outside with Darwin, then we headed over to a park to let Darwin run around a bit. There were a few other dogs there off leash who checked Darwin out. She was nervous about the ice, especially when her paws broke through it so she didn't do much running around so we headed home.
We walked through one more park and let her off leash since no one was around and out of no where a little Bulldog ran up to Darwin to play. I was in heaven. Didn't you know my dream is for Darwin to become bff's with an English Bulldog at daycare and for me to catch them napping together at daycare (or for Darwin to get an English Bulldog brother). And guess what! Darwin played back! At least for a little while.
While they may not be bff's and planning sleepovers, it was still so fun to see.
And check out the backdrop to this encounter.
