Abby's favorite activity is chasing squirrels plus she loves the snow so Saturday, we took her to Snow Road park and just let her lead wherever she wanted to go. It finally warmed up to upper 30s and there was still plenty of snow on the ground so I thought it would be fun to take Abby to the park.
She bounded right into the snow and started sniffing around. There were quite a few squirrels at the park on the ground and we would run after them with Abby leading and Gerard or me following along running as fast as we could to try to keep up with her. We had fun tromping through the snow too and of course, I bundled up so wasn't cold. We did manage to take a few pictures.
I sat on the swing for a little bit but then was up and running again when Abby spotted another squirrel. It's so fun to watch her run and enjoy herself outdoors! There were a couple other dogs there too which Abby had to sniff but she didn't bark at them. She did bark at the squirrels when they ran up the trees to safety.
It seems so unfair that we get to enjoy our days while over in Haiti, people are struggling to survive the earthquake and find their loved ones, hoping they are still alive. We need to pray for these people, their country, and the rescue workers that they will be able to get the help distributed to the people in need in a timely fashion. You can also help by donating to the effort through The American Red Cross site.
