Someone Is Getting Ready For Winter

There is a really big hill over a couple streets we usually avoid. We avoid it because the Lady is lazy and doesn't like doing 1000 steps up a steep and curvy hill.  Lady says she won't do it when it is dark (when we do most of our walking) because she doesn't trust drivers coming down it to keep us safe. Last Saturday, because Lady is now such a gym junky, she decided to take it on.  [Note: The dogs didn't love climbing this hill very much, it is very steep in places.]

Here we are at the top, looking down the hill.

Do you see what we see on the right at the top?

That is right, someone has left their sled. They are clearly getting ready for winter so they can zoom down the hill when the snow comes. Lady says that would be the best way to go down (although she also said you would likely get seriously hurt).

    My word - then again, as my Alberta blogpal has reported snow this morning perhaps this planning is not so far ahead!!! Watch out Z&H - you don't want Lady getting ideas about sleds and dogs. Jus' sayin'...hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. wow that is a brilliant idea... the mama said she will place a sled on top of the hill, so she hasn't to maneuver the elephant skater downhill in winter... we only have to look for someone who will pull the sled and the mama and her shopping trip trashures uphill....

  3. I can only imagine the two of you pups sledding down a hill!

  4. The tress are turning a beautiful colour there....I finks you are right, winter is sneaking up on us!
    I hope that's not Santy Paws's sled...do you finks he might haf lost it?

  5. Someone has their sled out already? Won't it get covered at the first snow? Then how will they find it?!?

  6. What a cool sled. Mom needs to keep it for you guys

  7. Oh my a sled. Maybe Santa Paws uses that hill and is getting ready for Christmas.

  8. I guess it can't hurt to plan early, right?? BOL!

  9. Wait a minute . . . gym junky? BOL! Does Lady agree with that? We think yous need to ride that sled down the hill!

    Your Pals,

  12. What a beautiful hill for sledding but you gotta stay safe!

  13. That sled reminds Mimi of how she went tobogganing as a kid. She says it was super fun, even when they crashed.

  14. Ha, we might need that at our new house, we're on the top of a pretty steep hill (which, no, I have not walked down and then up again...though my crazy hubby has jogged it!).

  15. We can't wait to see what you do with the sled in the winter. What a fun ride that would be.

  16. We could pull that sled for you!
    Yours sincerely,

  17. Mom says it is too early to think snow, but I sure would love some. If I were there near you, you could hook me up to the sled and I would pull the Lady back up the hill.

  18. Mommy wouldn't like that climb either. At least you have a sled to help you get back down

  19. The sled made me smile! The Runner adores sledding - he does it on our icy driveway every winter! Here's to the gym junkie!!!

  20. We're thinking we're due for a cold, snowy winter this year, after the wimpy one we had last year!

  21. So...did your mom snag the sled? You guys could use it this winter..how much fun would that be?
