Oscar got to ride, and I had to play sled dog.
They say this mid-December snow storm was the bigger than anything seen here in over 30, 40, maybe 50 years. By the time it started to melt, there was over 14 inches on the ground, snow on top of ice on top of snow on top of ice on top of snow. This meant no regular walks for Oscar and me for over a week. I loved playing in the backyard, though. It's a good thing there were layers of ice mixed in the snowfall. Oscar and I still had trouble walking through the stuff. We both had some lowrider belly-dragging moments.
