Winter Fun Without the Sun

BARK BARK BARK!!!

Hello lovely Lantherites!!! It’s been a cold, overcast and fairly dreary winter so far in the Northeast. BLAAAH! It’s weather like this that makes Humans… especially THE Human… exceptionally lazy about getting us dogs out there into the wild!

If you follow my BUTT-BOOK… er… uh… FACEBOOK PAGE and/or my TWITTER page, you will see that SHE hasn’t been completely useless in getting me outside for winter activities.

I have done some snow running… like a lone wolf leading the pack through the great arctic! I ran like the wind, AWOOO! And if any Humans got in my way, I plowed them right over! I’m a steamroller, baby!!!

     

I have done some toll-taking… this was a 3-treat toll minimum for all those who wished to pass!!! During one of my walks I noticed that Humans wanted to regularly pass over this point in the road on their little machine thingies… I saw an opportunity. All those who wanted to pass needed to pay a treat toll. Much to my dismay, a traffic jam developed because some Humans were not prepared for the payment required. What?!!! I know, right? What Humans in their right mind don’t travel around with dog treats at the ready? UNSAT!!!

I did some winter sporting activities… LET’S PLAY BALL!!! Despite the efforts of The Human to find me a nice fenced in area, I like to punk her. There were two incredibly small openings in the fencing of the enclosed area. I knew where they were, and I bolted for them every time! BOL! You should see how SHE runs in the snow! Hilarious! You would think she had cement blocks tied to her feet! She was pretty exhausted by the time I was through making her chase me! 

I also went sledding with The Human… I don’t think The Human knew what she was in for when she decided it would be “cute” to take me on board the sled. Silly rabbit! Sleds are NOT for dogs! I tried my best for days to chew off one of those fuzzy balls dangling from her hat. They were taunting me.

And when The Human was really hitting the winter weather blah mode, she managed to get me started on the indoor program with the treadmill. It’s quite an opportunity for me to get lots of treats, seeing as how that is the primary motivator utilized to get me to mount that goofy contraption. SEE VIDEO HERE: http://viddy.it/bB9dNG

Overall, a winter snowy terrain is awesome! But my favorite thing EVER remains a salty, sunny beach. There’s nothing like the shore! And there’s nothing like sunshine!

Dearest shiny orb, I look forward to seeing more of you as spring nears!

 

The Lanther’s Winter Ballet

It troubles me to see how long of a hiatus I have taken from blogging! It is, OF COURSE, The Human’s fault. If I listed the ways that she has been lazy around here, I’d have writer’s paw and the outline to a future novel! But I digress… onto more important things than the lethargy of The Human.

It has been quite a Fall/Winter this year. I have immensely enjoyed my time at the shore, being able to run amok on barren beaches, few people in sight. The Human was a trooper in the face of the bitter cold and cutting winds of Mistress Winter. She had me out and running several times a day, nearly every day. She often braved the chilly temperatures dressed embarrassingly like a mismatched bag lady, but what really matters is that she got out there with me. One of her favorite style choices came to be a bright red ski suit, meant for snow, but used on the sandy beach (sigh), FASHION POLICE!!! Embarrassment aside… for her extreme dedication to my exercise needs, I love her… (for her continued exposure of my young mind to senseless, over-dramatic reality TV,  I DO NOT – but that’s another story).

In honor of a winter that was so amazing, I present to you, my audience…

THE LANTHER’S WINTER BALLET:

A brilliant display of vivid images capturing the skilled choreography of my red ski-suited Human and I.

We were honored to have the great and talented Michael Bagley of Michael Bagley Photography document our performance photographically (Thanks, you’re awesome Dude!). Goodbye sweet peaceful winter that we enjoyed so much!

Sweet Dreams – Lanther’s First Home Christmas

Well I had a great dream during my nap.  It was about my first Christmas in a real home this year.

My human had taken me to cold, snowy New England to visit her sister, niece, their dog and 2 cats this Christmas.  I gave the kitties a bit of a hard time, so I wasn’t allowed to see them too much.  But I did play a lot with my new dog cousin Otto and new human cousin Gaby.

My human Aunt made Otto and I some tasty meaty bones on Christmas morning, which I lovingly adored the entire visit.  Num num num!!!

The best part … I got to run like a crazy wildebeest in the snowy hiking trails nearby!  Awooooooooo!!!
