Groundhog Day

Oh, sure, Groundhog Day was a few weeks ago, but we were thinking more of the Bill Murray movie where the main character wakes up everyday to the same routine. But, to be clear, we are not complaining about this repeat.

What shall we do?

Oh, look, Frankie, snow. Whatever shall we do?

Mad chase time

Mad chase time, of course.

can't catch this

Typhoon has engaged full fledged psycho dog with his “can’t catch this” zigging and zagging.

Hover Dog

Qannik appears to have engaged “Hover Dog” with no paw prints in the snow.

How did he do that?

Wait a minute! I’m Royalty. How did he do that?

    Mom ‘n Ice say: Both of us would sure love to see one of the “mad chase time” scenes on video. Also, one of Typhoon’s “psycho dog” runs. Ice sez: When me’n Ayla used to do that, the hu-Mom called them our “sproing sessions” I still do them by myself sometimes, but only inside. Start at Mom’s computer room door, down the hall to the livingroom, bank off Mom’s recliner, and back down the hall again. Five or six laps later …………… great “pressure” release!
