Cabin Fever

After two whole days of not being able to go for a walk because of minus 20 weather, we finally managed to get out for a romp today. Leeloo was suffering a bit from cabin fever so when we did finally get out she is ever so grateful. Snow is yummy Mommy.

Raimi and Esme spent some time digging in the snow trying to find something Raimi thought he heard under the snow. Esme is only helping in case he unearths some deer poop.

Then, obviously, the thing to do is mash Esme into the snow. Not to worry though, she loves it. No really ... she does.

See? She's fine. Giving almost as good as she gets. If it wasn't for the 60 pounds of weight difference I'm sure she'd take Leeloo down no problem. To Esme it is of no great concern, she just keeps going back for more.

Remember the Aesop fable of the lion and the gnat? Raimi and Esme remind me of that quite often, fortunately Esme never flies into a spider web but I can see her doing something equally as careless - she is quite the little show-boater on occasion. 

I think this expression says it all. Happy Leeloo bounding through the snow, flakes adorning her nose and lips, ears flapping, tail wagging, feet flying, heart bursting with joy, and a grin as wide as her head. Yes Leeloo ... I like going for walks with you too.
