Border Collie Goes Sledding

Subtitle? How Lilly spent her holiday vacation. Being a crazy-smart girl, Lilly knows how to ride a snow sled while being pulled along, but she also sometimes rides down the hill with me. Over our holiday break, we enlisted Mr. Champion of My Heart to shoot some video.

I’m not keen on being immortalized in video bundled up in my bulky snow suit. We thought you might enjoy seeing what we did with all the snow that fell on the Winter Solstice.

It took several hours to shovel and plow our way to the road after the snow stopped falling, but even a day or two later, we had enough snow to make a nice sledding run down our biggest hill and into the middle pasture — known around here as “the ball field.”

We crash into a pile of snow that’s old, crusty, and leftover from earlier snow storms, but I promise … Lilly wasn’t hurt. I held her tight to me and made sure I cushioned her fall with my elbows.

    Funny how different dogs are afraid of different things. K won’t go anywhere near a sled…
