Snow

OSCAR

Oscar seems to be pretty picky about his snow. It can’t be too wet. The temperature can’t be too cold. And, probably most important for him, it can’t be more than five inches deep or else he won’t go out in it. (That’s the highest it can be for him to walk and not have snow touch his belly.

On a somewhat-related-note. I have used the word “belly” more times in the past 15 weeks than I have in the rest of my life. I don’t have a hatred for the word like I do for “tummy”, but it just never seems right coming out of an adult’s mouth.

Back to my train of thought — Oscar likes the snow, even if it makes him look like a crazy rabbit/dog hybrid when he runs. Maybe I should go into business making ceramic figurines and stuffed-wall hangings of the mythical Beabitt (Beagle and rabbit) like the desert Jackalope.

OSCARI was happy to get some pictures of the dog playing today. Every time I tried to show Mal how much he enjoyed the snow he would always just stand and look at it like it was going to eat him and steal his toys (picture from last Wednesday). Now I have some proof and I can win a debate that she won’t care about at all.

And now, for the family members who need practice looking at every single picture that will be posted of the baby starting this summer, here are a few more of the dog playing with his tennis ball outside this morning. If it helps you get in practice mode, I think Oscar drools almost as much as a baby…
