I have no pictures, happened too suddenly...we were driving from TX to Kansas City. The roads were snow covered from Adair Oklahoma on...we took the back way. In a big truck. In the snow. With people off in the ditch everywhere, well their cars were off and the people were still in the majority of em. Anyway we stopped in Seneca Missouri to clean off icy windshield wipers because they weren't doing their job especially on my side of the truck and it was really important I see so my various muscles could clench appropriately (we won't go into that). I opened my door and started to reach around to the windshield wiper to slap it up and down and all of a sudden the Bichon Frise, Dispatch, is tumbling out and down, it's about 5 ft and the truck was stopped, he landed in a couple inches of water and slush. It was a slow motion tumble I think he was trying to catch himself on every step. He landed pretty well upright in the water and looks up indignant as h*!!, like you stupid woman, why'd you do that!! Get down here and PICK ME UP. He was fine, a bit wet but not even really shaken up. His pride was injured though.
BUT get this? He still like jumps from the truck to my shoulder when I tell him it's time to get out, evidently he's still not afraid of heights.
Driving was a different story though...he was shivering and scared...I'm thinking why is this dog so scared of the snow? Part of it was the noise the slush makes and if the snow plow decided to plow the shoulder of the 4 lane we would end up on rumble strips for a bit. My husband says dog was tense because I was. We saw @ least 100 cars off in the ditch in the last 150 miles or so, I think I had a right to be tense? Especially when they would spin out about 1/4 of a mile ahead of us.
I've been a bad bad blogger, I've been freelancing for a web designer and trying to keep up with husband. I've promised to do better but I haven't......I do think about you all..
