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!

For more rules, please visit: Camera Critters.

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

    I would do everything but the ice bath.

  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.)
