    I would have expected on his belly. But that snow is cold and numbness would ease the pain.

    Women jump to conclusions.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    We got Farley as a puppy in the fall. The first snow was so much fun. Like any baby, he was thrilled to play in it and would bounce into a snowdrift — right up to his ears. The ravine behind our house was quite steep, and in winter, we had no choice but to slide down if we wanted to walk along the creek at the bottom. Farley watched my husband and me slide down the hill on our toboggan, and with a little coaxing, he stepped forward, sat down, and slid all the way down, too. It was so funny, we laughed till we cried. All that winter, he would slide down the hill. We photographed him and made our friends watch. Summer came, and the following winter, we thought Farley would carry on sliding. He didn’t. He had no interest at all in getting his seat wet and clogged with snow. I can’t say that I blame him. We, at least, had protection! I guess it goes to show you that even dogs grow up and become sensible.

    I used to have a dog in Wyoming that behaved in snow like a porpoise in water. Down in one place and up in another. You can do that in 3 or 4 feet of snow. :)

    When we lived at High Lake in Alaska we had a pair of fox for neighbors and they liked to slide down a hill. Where they slid looked like a luge track with a trail going back to the top of the hill.

    It does seem cruel and the kids should know better.
    But Farley does enjoy it. Oh well go figure.

    sad we grew up, I remember all the fun I had in the snow, I just wish I could do it all again without breaking anything!!!

    My dog Penny absolutely hates snow. We had one small snowfall so far this year and she walked under the eaves of the house to a small tree which protected the ground from snow. She did her business and then scurried back to the house.

    No, the kids are actually intelligent, and they obviously get that from their grandparents! As we have seen from Day 1, Elly doesn’t notice or care about the fact that she could be wrong, she seems to get off on yelling and verbally abusing her kids, and it never stops unless someone actually points out that she’s wrong, and then we get that idiotic bug-eye look from her. I truly believe that if Lynn ever chronicled Elly’s death, the cause would have to be that she choked on her own foot!

    jonesb: Otters do it too. In the summer, they make slides on muddy banks (or make them muddy by using their fur to carry the water).

    I agree, it’s nice to get the notes from Lynn — thanks Night-Gaunt49. It does seem the parents could pay attention to what is really going on before scolding the kids, or at least ask what really happened — but that wouldn’t be nearly as funny.
