Lazy Is As Lazy Does

Jim and I went out for our first snowshoeing workout of the season yesterday. I decided to bring Roxie with us because she hasn’t gotten too much exercise lately, the temperature outside wasn’t too cold, and I thought we’d really tire her out by taking her out into the deep (for her, a beagle) snow. I’ve taken her out with me (by myself) several times in the past couple of years, and I practically had to drag her home because she was so tired.

Hmm. This year, unfortunately for us, because she’s no dum-dum, she figured out that snowshoeing would be easier–and more enjoyable–for her if she just trotted behind Jim in the tracks he made.

Roxie: 1
Us: 0

We’ll be going back to the old plan: leaving her home when Jim and I go together.

(Who, me?)

    My dog doesn't even like snow. Roxie knows what she's doing!

    Glad you are able to get out in this cold a$$Ed weather!

    Stay warm!

    Really? But that's so cute. And smart. And just downright adorable. I say she goes with you guys again 🙂

    You mean that Roxie didn't get her own set of snow shoes for Hanukkah?
