Reggie experienced his first snow today.
It was really interesting to see him come upon the realisation that everything outside was covered with cold, wet, sticky stuff that appeared to be falling from the sky.
After some initial bravado, a bit of an explore (and his normal ablutions) the actual scale of this icy ‘intruder’ began to hit home. It was everywhere and he couldn’t get away from it.
Molly, the seasoned professional, took it all in her stride.
Reggie looked to her for guidance on how he should react and what exactly he should do. He also wanted to know whether the white stuff was going to be around for a while.
Ever the understanding big-sister, Molly offered no consolation.
“Suck it up Reggie”.
” As they keep saying on the TV, Winter is Coming…!” (I didn’t realize that Molly was a GoT fan…).
“You’ll get used to it….it’s what us Canadians do…”
It’s the first time that I have seen Reggie look anything but enthusiastic.
But, with the wind whistling around my ears and the paths already becoming slippery I did understand exactly how he felt.
Winter is indeed coming….for now…
Keep warm Poochpeeps.
