More Pics of the Dogs in Snow

I know these photos are probably starting to all look alike, but I can’t help taking pictures of the dogs playing in the deep snow.  They find such tremendous joy in it, day after day.  They are perpetual little kids, and that lightens and warms my heart, even when it is -18 with the windchill, as it was when I took these…  

Skijoring to the park, sans skis:

 

Watching the dogs run in deep snow is like watching a dance performance.  Today they had nearly all the elements for a classical ballet.  The town square dance at the opening:

The solo by the lonely heroine: 

 

The pas-de-deux:

 

The deadly duel:

The grand finalé:

 

Taking a bow:

Now, just in case you aren’t completely saturated by dogs-running-in-the-snow photos, here are two very short clips I took to show just how much snow there really is.  They’re not great, but the batteries froze on my camera after the second one so I couldn’t take any more.  You can’t quite tell from these photos how hard the dogs have to work to run.  45 minutes out in this and they’re down for the count for half a day, especially if I give them a good meal when we get home.  Problem is, so am I!  Today I noticed we were all much less winded at the end of our walk.  Good thing, as we’re supposed to get another 10-15 cm over the next few days.  Oh joy.

The dogs had  been running for a while already when I took these, so they were already getting tired, as you can tell:
