On Christmas we try to make time to get the dogs out of the house for some exercise.

The first pictures are from 2007.  Storm was exactly 6 months old on Christmas.  We took the dogs to run on state land.  Storm is still on a check cord.

The next set of pictures is from last Christmas.  We were visiting family outside of Chicago, Illinois.  It snowed overnight and as we are early risers, we were first in the park.  🙂

Tonight the 2 brown dawgs are dreaming of running with Santa’s reindeer.  🙂

Actually we hope to get them out for some training today.  🙂

Running with the reindeers? That’s pawsome! I can’t do it because I am so small that the reindeer would eat me up. Instead, I decided to dress up as a reindeer and be Santa Paw’s helper for the month. He has many pawfriends that he needs to visit tonight after all!:)

Well you know how I love the pictures, it looks like the 2 brown dawgs love playing and running in the snow as much as Sampson and Delilah.

I noticed in one of the pictures that is looks like Storm got some height on her jump, it was pretty amazing.

Wherever you are spending this Christmas I hope it is wonderful.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.
