Cold Saturday Afternoon

We spent the afternoon in 20 degree weather on the farm. Lots of fun! Brodie played lots of fetch. He ran to the pond to get a drink. He sat the ball down at the edge of the pond. The ball rolled to the middle of the pond. It was frozen. The pond, not the ball. Then he went to go get it and the ice broke under him. Don't worry. He was just at the edge. But he couldn't retrieve his ball. This is a cardinal sin for Saint Brodie. He ran circles around the pond trying to figure out how to get it. Bradley ran behind. He didn't know why they were running, but he was following closely. The ball remains in the
middle of the pond. You can see in the picture our efforts to try and retrieve it ourselves.

Then I tried to teach Bradley to play hide and seek. It was hard because Brodie kept giving away my position. Brodie's really good at hide and seek. We had a great day.

***After this was originally posted Rob brought to my attention that, in one of the photos above, you can barely see Brodie running through the brush. I love it. He's camouflage. Another great example of God's perfect design. During the fall and winter months, this dog can do his job well because he will be hidden among the dead leaves and grass. I know there are people who believe that we humans are the only god, but really, if you were god would you have thought to do this?

"So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good." Genesis 1 :21
