Ping Pong

Brrrrr! It's feeling like Winter out here. I had to document our below average temperatures, as our days for caps and gloves are few and far between. (Now all of you with real Winters, I give you permission to chuckle). Look! Frozen grass!
With the rise of the new season came the resurrection of Kona's 30 foot leash. How she transforms with room to romp and explore! Our recent outings have gone like this:

The morning sits quiet, the sun hovering on the horizon.
Out from the slope of the canyon springs a Kona Dog.
With a flying leap, she lands on top of a rock wall.
She then makes a joint-cringing jump off the wall, springs back across the trail and back down the canyon (then repeat). Who needs coffee at sunrise? Just plug into the four legged ping pong ball!

Looks like fun! Hope your knees are feeling better.

I can't believe you took a photo of frozen grass.

Kristine said...

Gorgeous. It may be winter now, but it's worth it for beautiful shots like those.

I hope you are doing a little better these days.

Now everyone who comes here, doesn't say much about your injury, except to get better! They are runners, right? I am not, never have been, never will be a runner. But I wish you would find yourself a good sports doctor who could help you get better faster. I worry when people hurt themselves and think maybe there is a way to make this better, faster. What do you say, girl?

I'll admit, the frozen grass picture did make me laugh :) Kona looks like she's having a blast out there bouncing off of everything!

I was chuckling at your frozen grass, but I am secretly envious. Kona looks like she's having a blast!She is almost camouflaged on that rock.

Wow - I love that second shot. Kona seems to be here, there, and everywhere. She's a happy girl! Hope your knee is better.

KB said...

Yes, chuckling - frozen grass!

I love to see Kona having a romping good time. I'm partial to the photo of her on top of the rock wall bathed in the sunrise rosy color.

I hope that your leg is improving. I've been thinking of you.
