Wednesday Pack Activities

Adventure Pack

Snow was falling as the pack set out for our morning hike at the Chautauqua. Ruffers and Rucksack had lots of fun bounding through the snowy hills together Sputnik and Mamacita made some playful hops and leaps with Ruffers here and there, as well. Rucksack disappeared over the crest of a hill momentarily before racing back to join us. On the return leg of our loop, we saw a couple deer hanging out under a tree near the trail, which tipped me off to the reason Rucksack likely ran off earlier. The weather wasn't too bad until the last stretch of our return along Bluebell Road, when we had to walk into the wind. That wouldn't have been much of an issue if it weren't for the tiny, sand-grain hail balls that were pelting us.

Variety Pack

Avo, Zoey, Rey, Milo, and Roger Roger all had a blast at the Valmont Dog Park this afternoon. The snow had stopped falling by that point, and there wasn't much wind most of the time. All five of them joined in chases with each other in different combinations at different points during our visit, and they were occasionally joined by one or two other four-legged park visitors. Many treasures were uncovered from beneath the thin veil of snow, including tennis balls, numerous sticks, and two silicone discs. Zoey was very interested in the red Kong disc she found; but it was already tearing apart, so I snatched it from her before she started eating pieces of it. Avo found a blue disc and we played some tug-of-war over it. Avo also batted tennis balls around in the snow and rolled on top of them. Roger Roger really wanted to fetch tennis balls, but he kept losing track of them mid-throw and then his packmates would snatch them up first.

Boarding Pack

Benny, Oliver, Cooper, and Mamacita were eager to get out this afternoon after my regular pack activities were done, so we walked to Wonderland Lake. Although Oliver was restless in the house, he wasn't too thrilled about picking his way through the slush-covered walkways. Benny, Cooper, and Mamacita were less ambivalent, and gladly trotted through the snow to sniff around as we went.
