Who Likes Snow?

I like snow. No, make that love snow. Even when snowballs clump around my legs so much that I can't walk (and human Lizzy has to carry me home from the park), there's just something about snow that seems magical... And it must be played in. Zoomies in the snow are the best (even if I'm zooming just to keep myself warm). And eating snowballs, what could be better tasting than snowballs (avoid eating the yellow ones, for some reason my human got mad at me for doing that)! But simply enjoying and exploring a wonderful winter wonderland can be absolutely lovely, as shown in this stop-motion Lizzy made a few weeks ago.

All our snow has melted since this stop-motion was made, but according to the weathermen (who always lie, but one still can't help hoping!) we are supposed to get 30-40 cm of snow tomorrow and the next day. WOW, can you imagine?! Let's just hope it doesn't cause difficulties for when I need to do some certain business... Alas, potty time gets interesting when the snow is much higher than my own bum!

Puppy Romance

My human Lizzy always lets me run and wander off leash at the park. I am a good boy, right? So this evening didn't make any difference. It was getting late - the sun was gone and dusk was upon us. The air was quiet, save for the few calls and tweets of the birds settling in their roosts, and the occasional scream of a nearby neighborhood child who did not want to be put to bed. A star or two was starting to appear in the darkening sky as the last red tints were drawn out from the clouds in the west.

Lizzy started fiddling with my leash in her hands - A sure sign she was getting ready to call me back to start heading home. I quickly trotted along the side of the pond, looking for a drink, and watching out for any sleeping ducks I might like to startle.

That's when I saw it. Them. Him. Her. A couple. Together. In love.

It was so beautiful! They were two young humans, perhaps in their late teens or early 20's, standing on the other side of the pond. They stood by a picnic table, were I could spot the remains of their take-out Chinese dinner. But the food wasn't what interested me this time... The couple, just dark silhouettes in the nearly black park now, had their arms around each other in a deep embrace, his head bent over hers, kissing the night away...

Let me tell you guys something: I am a dog of love. That also means I am a jealous dog. Guys, who doesn't want to shower humans in big loving slobbery smooches (especially when their breath smells like Chinese food)?? I can't just stand by and let two people get away with smooching without me. There was only one thing I could do...

That's when Lizzy started calling me. Uh oh. She knew what I was on to. I'd have to do this quick, before it's too late. So, I took off running in the opposite direction of my human, running fast towards the kissing couple, my tongue already lolling out of my mouth... Before the lovers had time to even turn around and notice me, I was already up on their picnic table, standing on my hind legs, one of my front paws on her shoulder, the other paw on his shoulder, sticking my head right between theirs, giving (and getting) two kisses at one time. I could hear Lizzy yelling my name in the background. It was truly wonderful. Wonderful, until the couple noticed there was a third tongue in their game. And that's when he started yelling.

I decided it was my time to leave, my job here was done. Well, almost... As I hopped down from the picnic table, I had a sudden urge to give the lovers a couple good ol' leg humps. And that's when I noticed my human Lizzy, suddenly red-faced and quiet, turn around and start walking out of the park as fast and silently as she could. Where is she going?! Without me??! I had better run to catch up with her. Goodbye, my dear lovers, may your future together be bright and not too lonely without me!

And so I ran after Lizzy out of the park, and together we walked home. Me silent with satisfaction, Lizzy silent with repulsive attitude.

But, my friends, what can I say? I can't help it that I am just a lovable romantic pup, striving to make the world a better and more loving place.

Where Have I Been?

Terribly sorry I haven't been around much lately. I've gotten into the secret agent business with my human now, it tends to keep me busy. I'm currently working on a top secret mission that has to do with enemy squirrels invading my territory during this abnormally warm winter.

Bet Ya Didn't Know Who We Really Are...  6/365

Hope to post again soon.

Agent Sparks, signing out.
