On thin ice
The snows have come at last! Along with the extreme cold…
It’s deceptive really, because you might think that the ice on the lake is thick enough to walk on.
One minute, you’re a dog blending in with the gold of the reeds…
… the next, you’re playing on the ice.
It’s thin enough to scare the wits out of your owner. She calls you back.
You try. There’s an ominous crack and your back legs slide into the water.
Luckily, it’s shallow and you make it back to land. You show your owner your icy bottom.
There doesn’t seem to be any harm done.
Quite the opposite.
Playing on thin ice seems to be invigorating.
(But it wreaks havoc with your owner’s nerves.)
So, it’s play on firm ground from now on…
… until the ice sets, that is.
