Recipe for happiness

First, find out which way is up

And which way is down.

Totte - where is his face

Then, throw a snowball

Again and again.

Pure happiness achieved!

Totte - big jump

These photos of the Old English Sheepdog Totte were taken before the lake froze over

And the really heavy snows arrived.
