The Family Dog has fallen in love with snow and cold. During a quick outing to Vermont, he found spring's betrayals and rejoiced in drifts of snow at least deep enough to touch the underside of his belly.
Showing complete disregard for dignity, he jumped up and down in the drifts and ran back and forth through them.
Impossible to restrain on a leash, he ran freely between the family humans who could do nothing except feel as jubilant as did he.
Laughter touched the trees of the forest.
Hooray for The Family Dog.
We could all learn a thing or two from him.
