The dogs and I spend a fair amount of time in the woods down by the creek when the weather allows. On this wonderful day our injured player accompanied us for the first time since December. The dogs were thrilled to have both of us down there and ran back and forth between us at full speed.
When she saw my camera, Ellie hopped up on one of the benches and smiled her sweet smile.
Lucy posed as well, but didn't want to get up on the bench.
No matter how often we are in the woods, there is always one stick that both girls want to have. It might as well be the only one in the forest and a tug-of-war ensues. This one was short lived. The stick was so old and dry that it broke, quickly ending their game. Ellie almost always wins in tug-of-war. She knows how to twist and turn her head to get the best leverage. She also moves up the stick to achieve advantage while Lucy simply stands there and pulls.
The one game (if you can call it that) that Lucy wins is the "use someone's body as a pillow" game. After their exhaustive running and playing, the girls plopped down to rest. And despite the warm day, Lucy once again uses Ellie for comfort.
We are so glad the rains in the Northeast appear to have stopped. For our Christian readers, this weekend marks the most holy days of the year. For our Jewish readers, Passover continues through the weekend. For all readers of all (or no) faiths, we wish for you some wonderful weather and a lovely weekend whatever you will be doing.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!!!
