Crawling through the prairie…

The snow was so deep I kept sinking in above the knees. After a while, walking just became too much work and so I started crawling across the snow. In the past I’ve always dismissed snowshoes, but with snow this deep maybe they would be a good idea. But where I go Lilly goes and she won’t wear snowshoes. Today, however, she was light enough to walk across the surface, while I was not. It made me think that maybe trying snowshoes was not out of the question.

What I learned from crawling across the snow was to look at things from a different perspective. Most people look at the world from eye level, but this gave me the opportunity to look at it from a dog’s eye level. It’s amazing what a different perspective it is… not huge, but enough to intrigue.
