It is finally snowing, and I got the bug for a snowball fight while shoveling the sidewalk this morning. Since the neighbor boys were nowhere to be found, I convinced Kyle and Punkin to play out in the snow with me this afternoon. Punkin was leaping like a Frisbee-catching champion to catch snowballs with her face, and then chew them to bits. It was awfully funny, and sad at the same time that we haven't played in the snow enough in the last 2 years to realize she had this spectacular talent. She's now being rewarded for her success with a milkbone almost as large as one of her front legs. Today's a great day to be a dog. What I really wanted to do was build a snowman, but the snow isn't quite sticky enough to hold together in a large mass.
