I got new skates today and we all went skating - it was about 4:30 when we all got on the ice. And I must say that it was beautiful - I love a pink sky anytime, anywhere but reflected off a mirror-like surface was something special. Now its been a while since I've SKATED on ice and Luna could tell I was a little nervous at first - so she kept jumping up on my legs - YIKES! - as if it wasn't challenging enough to stay upright - I know she was trying to help - but - she wasn't. Does anyone know how stubborn dachshunds can be? In spite of the guys calling her she insisted on following me and jumping up - I was wobbling, sliding and swaying - BUT - I did NOT fall down! Hooray!!!!!!!! Boone said I did pretty well. We're going again tomorrow in hopes of beating the 6-12 inches of snow on the way. With some practice, maybe someday I'll be able to GLIDE like Boone.
