Winter Wars

winter

a drizzle from the previous evening
has formed an ice crusted 
landscape
the pups walk gingerly with each step
as an occasional 
foot breaks through
the brittle surface


it does not make
for fast yard play

my dogs are stick eaters
they hunt and search
for any piece of twig
breaking the white
terrain

I have no idea
what twigs taste like
perhaps I should try one
they apparently are delicious
delicious enough to fight over

wars have been started
over lesser reasons

Oh pooches. Anything to carry, they will. Anything they can chew, they will. Looks like a beautiful day to be out:)

I do agree with Chris, my dogs were the same way when I lived in Montana! And we did have such cold, snowy winters!! Great capture for the day!! Hope you and the doggies have a wonderful new week, Reena!! Stay warm!!

I like that they hunt side by side. Good friends I imagine.

Sticks are probably as good a reason as any I suppose--your two remind me of my old girls and the young pups down the street
