We got about 4 inches of snow the night before which made the event all the more exciting for the pups. Dash and Ronin got right to wrestling; it was like Ronin never left at all!
Once in a while they'd take a short break from chase and wrestling to just play in the snow. Dash liked to lay on his belly and pull himself along the ground with his front legs while dragging his back legs behind him.
This is Henry, Ronin's big brother. He wanted to get in on more of the chase and wrestling action but one of his knees is bothering him (he's already had surgery on it once), so he had to be kept on a leash most of the time so he wouldn't play too hard and hurt himself.
Ronin and Dash would sometimes have a little starting contest before leaping at each other. A lot of the time they would be standing on either side of a tree so they couldn't see each other.
Every now and then Dash and Ronin would come play over near Henry, so he would try to jump in.
I just like this one because it looks like Dash is telling Henry a secret about Ronin.
The dogs also found a really big stick in the yard to play with, so that kept them occupied for a good long time!
At one point Henry got a hold of a big stick, too, but in true little brother form, Ronin came over and stole it
So Henry ended up chewing on a tiny stick, even though he was the biggest dog.
By the end of the afternoon all three of them were tuckered out and covered in snowballs!
We had so much fun seeing how Ronin has grown (he's taller than Dash now!) and letting the dogs have play around and get some energy out! The first of many playdates!
