Snow crazy

Like snow-crazed dogs everywhere, Luka considered all that white fluffy stuff as a grand excuse to play!

While I was busy digging my car out... he busied himself with uncovering his basketball. He liked for me to toss the ball into a fresh patch so that he could plunge his whole head under the snow and push the ball along with his nose like a seal.

It took hours to shovel enough of the driveway to get my car out... mostly because Luka insisted on playing fetch the whole time! (Fetch is mainly about throwing the ball for him and then wrestling him to the ground to get it back.)

He made the chore fun at least... sometimes I think if it weren't for him I'd hardly have an excuse to play anymore. With Luka, I can roll around in the snow like a kid and get away with it.

Why do we as adults, think we need an excuse to laugh and have fun and roll in the snow? How sad for us! Oh, and by the way, I'm officially a Lukaholic!

Snow IS for fun ... at least for awhile!

Shoveling your driveway? Why? :)

Our lab, Jake is a lot like Luka. A four year old puppy, who doesn't need any excuse to play. His favorite game is fetch, of course, and he also has a problem releasing the ball. We would not begin the play without two balls. He'll bring one back and when he does he gets the second ball tossed after he releases the first. He goes after that ball, we pick up the soaking wet one, and toss that one when he...well, you get the point.
Oh, yes I am the uncle of A DC Birding blog which makes him Jake's cousin.

Luka know it is his job to make you laugh and be happy.

Laura--I read your post yesterday, while I was at school, and didn't have time to comment.
I still LOVE THAT LUKA. What a wonderfully goofy dog.
And if he is the reason you get to play--well, then, power to his goofiness.
I look at our dog (a tad older than Luka and now less playful) and tell her she has to be my stand-in grandchild! So I ask her to keep me playful.

Oh, I do so love the Luka posts. What a fun time you two must have had. He is such a wild and crazy guy.

Dogs are like children. They keep you young.
