Introduction: How to Keep a Dog Amused in the Snow
So anyway I digress... as abit of light entertainment I'm going to write a fun (non-serious) I'ble about how to keep a stupid dog amused... In three easy steps you can amuse any dumb dog (or younger sibling). Meg and Milo my two pooches are always in the background of any I'ble I create... If not in the tasting, they help hinder any progress I make,... This ones for you Milo and Meg!
NB: I can't get the Video to post, so here is a direct link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4It7UJcYfY
Step 1: Find Your Ingredients!
You will need:
a Dog or multiple Dogs
Some warm clothes
Video camcorder to record the fun
Roll and compact a fairly medium sized snow ball, by scooping up some snow into your hands and pressing it into a round shape.
Repete as nessicery
Step 2: Throw Your Balls!
Making sure your Dog or Dogs are watching throw the snowball (Not at them, I don't advocate cruelty no matter how funny the results maybe) over the Dog/s and tell them to 'Fetch it'
It is fairly important at this juncture, to point out that if your Dog doesn't like playing fetch, this fun winter exercise simply isn't for you
repete this step as often as you want, or until your dog gets bored and just starts eating any snow nearby.
Step 3: Chortle, and Go Inside for a Coffee
After playing this fun little game, It would be best to take your lovable (if not mentaly deficiant) Pooch inside, give them a cuddle, and dry their muddy feet... Or if your Dog is as stupid as mine... Take 30 minutes or so to stand by the back door yelling at the damn thing to come in from outside... I later worked out that Milo had been looking for his snow ball, and couldn't work out where it had gone.... *sigh*
I hope you enjoyed some fun in the snow!
