Romping on the Grass

Sad isn't it.  My title should be  be,  Romping in the SNOW!!

I took Fred and Gloria out to throw the the ball around yesterday morning. Figured, what the heck the lawn is ruined now anyway. So much for the sod we laid last year. No snow, just mud. But you have to make the best of it and watching Freddie Spaghetti and Gloria have so much fun together is worth it!

Fred's been trying to get Gloria to play ball with him, but she just doesn't know what to do with it. Well, yesterday she started catching on. First Fred dropped the ball for her.



"Go on Gloria.  Take it."


"Woo hoo!  This is fun!"


"Go on Freddie.  I dare ya to try and take it!"  "I triple dog dare ya!!"

This of course left Freddie no choice.


And a chase ensued.  They soon forgot all about the ball and just kept  tearing up tearing around the yard.


Here's Fred in his Greyhound mode!


After playing the Basset Hound Ballet for awhile,


Freddie caught a scent of something in the air and once they both stopped they realized how tired they were.


My little plan worked again.  Now they would go in and nap and I could get my pies baked!!

  3. You take the best "playing in the yard" pictures! This certainly brought a smile to my face, seeing these two cuties having fun. Freedom, Casper and Nikki admire Fred's gait...all four off the ground! We're supposed to get some snow Thursday and Friday. I think I've driven in snow once this year...crazy.

  5. Our yard looks like a herd of cattle stomped through it. There's very little grass, and a ton of mud. Those pictures brought back a lot of great memories for me... I used to love to watch my Nicky run around the yard, but he wasn't much of a ball chaser!

  9. MOM just loves the pics of them running. Glad Gloria is catching on with the ball. Playing ball with a friend is the best. I love it.

  12. Great job, BM.

    Gloria's ballet picture looked like the model in Bow-Wow dog food.

    And Freddie's greyhound move was awesome. That's why I love looking at dogs that have cute stubby feet. When they run, they look soooo cool.

  16. Playtime in the back yard is the best. I run and run and run too. Mommy loves it so much when I come in tired. She says she gets lots of work done then too.

  23. I love those ears! This winter sure will be hard on the grass and plants if we don't get any snow; although I'm sure it will come and then we will be wishing it away!
