Coco puts her snow tire through the paces

While I might complain about the snow as I did earlier, Coco does not! In fact, she loves the snow, because it makes her favorite tire seem all the more enticing and magical.

 

As you can see, Coco is in no hurry to bring it to me, and when she does, she insists on having a fierce tug of war, and enjoys having me swing her around and lift her off the ground while she holds on to the tire while shaking and emitting those little squeaks and moans that so typify her breed; I call them "machine noises." (If only I could figure out a way to hold the camera and film her while at the same time I'm being jerked about in a tug of war game....)

Get a cheap "miner's" helmet and from some cheap Intertubes site and stick the camera where the lamp is. I've seen them from $8 and up, Amazon has at least one and probably like a dozen or there's probably a local place that sells schlock.

Find one where the lamp is about the same size as your camera.
You're handy, you could probably rig it well.

That was me (I'm in moderation right now).

I keep forgetting the blog won't remember my name anymore.

Well... Coco's joy makes the snow worthwhile.

Wow. That's one seriously subdued tire!

Heh. At least she doesn't bark while playing. Here's Dijon with her "Egg Ball" last winter during a rare desert snowfall:
