Winter rules

When winter comes around and the cold wind is blowing,

You have to learn how to enjoy it.

Rule 1: Revel in it (and maybe take an ice bath?)

Rule 2: Explore the beauty

Rule 3: Take a look around and smile – the world is beautiful and you’re alive!

    Is this Oscar’s first snow? My dog used to love it, too.

    I would do everything but the ice bath.

    February 5, 2012 at 17:26

  51. That is a really Swedish dog!;) We also got some snow and are in deep freeze, however I am not sure I share Oscar’s joy for the weather.;))

    February 5, 2012 at 22:51

    your last post of the sunsets are gorgeous!! Mystically wonderful.

    February 6, 2012 at 01:06

  59. Joy and happiness is all around us if only we will embrace it. Your dog has obviously found joy in being out in the snow.

    February 6, 2012 at 17:43

  63. What a beautiful, happy dog.

    February 8, 2012 at 05:32

  64. Someone loves where he is! Our Colorado kids have Australian shepherds and they love the Winter oh so much more than they do the summer — maybe that’s true for Oscar too, because he too has that lovely long coat. (Although I think I’ve seen him smiling in every season.)

    February 8, 2012 at 16:08

  65. The world according to Oscar! Now there’s a cult I’d follow! Love you, Oscar!
