Free Circus

I didn't have my camera with me the other day and I didn't get a movie so I'll just have to describe it to you the best I can. A couple days ago I was driving down a quiet street and I saw something going on in someone's front yard. When I got closer I realized it was a 1/2 grown dog, a bird dog liver colored with spots. There was a lot of snow in the yard and also a sled, one of those yellow plastic things, very light, with a rope on it. This dog was all alone pulling the sled all around the yard, jumping up in the air legs flying all over the place, then running back to get it and pulling it some more. I stopped the car and just sat there and laughed at the circus. It went on for a little while and then he realized that someone was watching him. He stopped, dropped the rope and said "Woof!" It just made my day. I wonder if the people who owned him even knew what was going on. God bless you, Diane

Isn't it great to find 'free' entertainment all around us, Diane??? We humans just don't always stop and LOOK. Glad you enjoyed the circus.
Hugs,

How lucky of you to get to see this little show. Animals touch our hearts, make us laugh and fill us with joy, even when not our own. He unknowingly made your day a little happier. How sweet!

How wonderful to be able to just watch him entertain himself with gleeful abandon!
