When I woke up to snow on Tuesday morning, I knew I’d found my shot. I had to get my baby bug in the snow.
I did remove her leash (in Photoshop!) for this image, and it’s actually quite fitting. The night before, it was icy with barely any snow on the ground. I took Kate for a walk to grab the mail, which is a couple buildings down from ours. One minute I’m on my way to the mailbox, the next I’m flat on my back with no leash in my hand. The leash had come out of my hands in the fall, Kate was terrified and started barking/running away.
As soon as I realized what had happened, I crawled my way up – literally crawled through the ice and snow to brace myself, and ran frantically after her. She had run around a huge evergreen tree and miraculously her leash caught on to a branch. She was waiting for me around the tree just sitting there like nothing had happened.
I wish my bug could be off leash and trustworthy to stay near us, but I just don’t think she’ll ever be that kind of doggie. Only in Photoshop will she be an off leash dog
