Even on snow and ice she can run with all the big dogs.
He's banished from running. At least near cats, chickens and highways after he terrified me worse than a scary movie (A Fearfully Fantabulous Tale).
Snow covers Elmira Pond's slicked ice and Bobo frog-hops in a frenzy. Her hind legs kick out behind her and her ears flop as she bounces across the pond. It must take a great deal of effort because she starts to pant heavy like a lumbering piece of machinery.
But she won't slow down.
Occasionally, Bobo has a "butt-wreck" where her frog-hop fails and her back legs swing a different direction. Her front legs keep pulling though, and soon she uprights herself and is back running among the other dogs, her people and the golden winter rushes lining the pond.
Although her gait is silly, I can't help but admire the dog's plucky spirit. Bobo does not let her disability keep her down; instead she pours her energy into the joy of running. A remarkable lesson for us all. It's okay to look silly; love what you do and do what you love.
