Thaw Good in the Hood

We’re back for another FitDog Friday! And that’s because it is finally getting warm enough for successful walks around the neighborhood again! Yay!

Last time, we showed you how walks with Gilligan continued to be thwarted by the cold and mounds of snow, continuing in the fashion of our prior “Wiener in the Trenches” post, showing Gilligan’s “I give up on this walk” stance in response. Today, we celebrate the triumph of being able to accomplish a complete walk in the neighborhood again, with some special photos and video to share with you!

Well, here we are in the final week of February, and we’re finally starting to see some sunny days, and some lovely thaw. Ah, yes!


We’ve been able to accomplish several walks this week. Check out a clip from yesterday’s before we share a few photos from today’s wonderfully sunny stroll. 🙂

Finally able to relax after catching up on his pee-mail, Gilligan started today’s walk just basking in the warmth of the sunshine.

“Oh my DOG, that feels good!”

Now that’s not to say that the grass is back and Spring has sprung around these parts. Oh no, we’re still a ways from that. The below photo will give you a glimpse at the mounds of ice and snow that we’ve needed to tackle. Check out the bed of ice still partially present on the driveway.

My, thank goodness for that plow!

Just think, this is the nicest it’s been here for about three weeks!


There was still a decent amount of ice and snow around, which meant Gilligan periodically wanted to stop for a break from walking on the ice, and just sit in the sun again.


As if today’s walk couldn’t get any more wonderful, WE FOUND TREASURE on our way home! It had been buried under ice in the sidewalk, but was just thawed out enough to retrieve now. What was it, you ask?

A pi cutter!

See? Not a typo.

See you next time, and have a great weekend! 🙂

  1. First of all, I’m loving this posts title. Clever. A close second would be “Thaw’ll Good in the Hood”. Second, that’s a great and unexpected find. It’s not everyday you stumble across the symbol for Pi.

  2. We were also able to get out, finally! We feel your pain with all the snow everywhere. Makes doing anything outside no fun. Glad you were able to get out there and enjoy it. That is some mounds of snow.

  3. Look at Gilligan go! Yay for thawing! We’re getting some thawing from the sun too, but the temps aren’t quite up there yet. We do hope to get out for a longer walk sometime this weekend though.

    1. It’s been 10 and 15 minutes, but beats 5 minutes or no walk at all! Our favorite park is still inaccessible, but we’re looking forward to that changing soon. Cheers for the thaw! Hope you guys get in some outdoor play this weekend! *wags*
