We Went Squirrel Chasing While Those In Haiti Struggle

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.

Dogs just love to chase critters. I know our dog does. Any critter is fair game for her.

Have a terrific day. :)

Our dog is the same way. Birds,squirrels and anything else she can find.

Whenever I've had a bad day I'll take my dogs to the park and let them run. There's something about watching them run around and being so happy (I swear they're smiling) that makes me smile!

My friend has two children she's adopting in Haiti. It looks like they passed the emergency visas to send them to her this week. Praying!

Looks like Abby enjoyed her day chasing squirrels! Sadie would like to chase any critter that's outside of the house since she knows she's not allowed to chase her kitty sisfurs who live inside the house.

I'm so glad you had fun. I can't get over the snow there when it's in the 60s here.
The tragedy in Haiti is just so awful. I can't even begin to imagine.

Cooper is not a good dog for chasing; he doesn't know enough to stop at the road, and it scares us to death. That said, he did make a nice snow angel tonight! :)
