Snow Dogs

It was wonderful to watch the dogs in my neighbourhood frolicking in the fresh snow. They really were like 3 year olds in their joy. I think we adults can learn a lot about snow from children and dogs. They enjoy snow for the pleasure it gives. Never mind about the roads and the buses, they simply enjoy it for the fun.

One nasty drawback though is the thoughtlessness of some dog owners who think that because of the snow they don't have to pick up after their dogs. Today while walking through the melt I noticed an awful lot of dog feces melting along with the snow. A responsible pet owner picks up no matter what the weather. A few selfish individuals taints the whole dog owning public. Please pick up after your dog, it is the neighbourly thing to do--not to mention the law.
