Sydney the Jumping Shepherd

It is Daylight Saving Time, the geese are returning home from their vacation and Sydney has a new spring in her step.

We put the leash on Sydney and walked to the lake to enjoy the sun.

The ice is melting in the creek.

The ice on Lake Simcoe is starting to melt.  All the fish huts have to be removed from the lake by March 15th, but I worry that it is already unsafe. There have already been a few ice rescues and sadly some tragedies.

help...the ice is sinking.

Luckily, it is not deep at this spot. Sydney was able to scramble out and shake off the icy water.

I found a stick.. please play with me.

Sydney loves to jump to grab the stick.

Sydney can jump high

She loves the game and will keep it up for a long time.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Winter… it is here!!

We have been waiting for winter… with dread. I am not a cold weather enthusiast. I looked out the window … SNOW … living in Canada it is inevitable. Since leaving the west coast, I have never seen a winter without it.

The backyard was covered in the white stuff

Sidney couldn’t wait to get out into the snow.

She enjoyed playing by herself for a few minutes.

Catching snowflakes on her tongue.and burying her nose in the snow

Sidney gave me a look… she wanted me to come outside and play with her.

"What are you doing? I am waiting for you.. come on, it is snowing, let's have some fun."

I have a cold, I do not want to get dressed, get my shoes on and go outside. I just want to light a fire and snuggle in a blanket.

Please? Sidney begged with her hang-dog look...

I knew what I had to do, it is too hard to resist those eyes…

I had no choice…

I called my husband to go play with Sydney.

But first, Sidney had to wait inside while he cleared the deck.

and I… I closed the door, lit the fire and nursed my cold with a hot lemon drink.
