It’s been two weeks since we’ve posted on FitDog Friday. The reason?
We’ve been snowed in! Below is the image we left you with last time at the conclusion of our “Wiener in the Trenches” post, showing Gilligan’s “I give up on this walk” stance during our last post-blizzard attempt at a walk around the block.
Unfortunately, the situation has really only gotten worse. Two weeks and four snow days later, the snow has piled up even higher, and despite today being calm and somewhat bright (though not warm…), Gilligan gave up on today’s walk even sooner than he did before, not even making it past the street corner!
As much as Gilligan was itching for a walk after several days confined to playing with toys indoors, he was immediately skeptical from the outset of the walk. The snow was piled up high everywhere, and despite the sun today’s temperatures were frigid.
Before the end of the block, there’s a “terminal” so at least Gilligan was able to check his pee-mail…
Then, right after the hydrant, Gilly was faced with a dark, super-scary snow-trench that came up above the corner lot fence! *gulp* 😦
And so it was after a very long and cold 4 minutes, less than a block from home, that Gilligan sat down in defeat on the snowy path, and assumed his classic “carry me home NOW!” stance.
Looks like it’s back to the great indoors and some choice toys… unfortunately we’re due for yet more snow on Sunday…. ROH NO!
And the moral of the story is: Be careful what you wish for!
