Then we encountered a porcupine on the trail. Now remember I was on my leash, and mom did all she could to keep me from saying hi to the porcupine! In fact, she dragged me up a side trail to get away from it. The problem with the side trail was it was a vertical sheet of ice at the top with no footholds. Mom decided we had to try and get up this way because she didn't want me playing with the porcupine. So she tried to kick footholds in the ice and grab onto trees to help her up. And then she lost her footing and slid all the way to bottom and had me land on top. BOL. Then she decided to try the trail again, but remember the porcupine(?), he was still there! Back to the vertical wall of ice we go and mom was successful in getting up it this time. She did hurt her shoulder when slid down the first time though. Oh well!

Anywhoodle, we had a very good walk yesterday and then mom and I retreated into the house, where I lounged in a sunny patch in the den and mom worked on her cross stitch picture.
Yesterday evening we went out for another walk and guess what? Mom slipped again on the ice and really whacked the same shoulder she injured earlier in the day. I was a good pup and ran over to her as she lay moaning on the snow and I licked her face and tried to sit on top of her. I am ever so helpful!
Her shoulder, arm and hand are real sore today. If it continues, maybe I should take her to the vet!
Later in the evening mom and I enjoyed watching some WWE Smackdown and then mom finally finished doing something she has been working on for a long time.

We hope everyone is having an awesome weekend!
