As you know I am finally off my restrictions and I'm allowed to resume running, playing, jumping, just being who I am. So for the first time in two weeks I got to go to the Fort and test out the leg. My friend Bert joined me.
First MOM kept me on lead, so I wouldn't just spring out of the gate. She said it was best to ease back into these things.
But I just had to be free to run through the leaves.
Twice last week we had two real good snow storms that helped the trees release their hold on their leaves. Then a day after the last storm it warmed up to 40 and a lot of the snow melted, leaving my part of the world covered in a layer of soft leaves.
Wooo Hoooo. Oh yea this is what I have been waiting for!
"Come on Bert catch up!"
Zoomies between the trees.
It was such a beautiful night.
Bert has fallin' and can't get up. But I rush in to give him a paw.
We cooled off in the snow.
Then we raced off again. Bert is a great friend, even if he does have a fluffy butt. But I gotta say it works for him.
Heaven was displaying all it's glory and smilin' down on us.
And what adventure is not complete without finding a stick. Bert helped me hold this one down so I could get my chew on. Told you he was a good friend.
As we headed back to the Blazer, walking through all the leaves, I was reminded of this:
A single leaf is an ancient symbol of happiness. Pointed leaves symbolize a strong and lasting friendship. This association is derived from it's ability to stay attached to a rocky surface in even the most inhospitable conditions. The best friends are the ones who withstand the good and the bad, and all the in between.
"A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity." Proverbs 17:17
