The kids went out today to make a snow man while Gertie sat by the front glass door peaking out to catch a glimpse of what her human friends were doing. She wanted nothing more than to be outside with them, however mom thought it wouldn't be a good idea with all the ice she could slip on. I eventually caved when I saw her sad little eyes wanting to be outside with her buddies. She had so much fun watching them while they made their snowman, never once thinking to leave the yard or chase after a neighbor cat. She is a our good dog!
