Why icy ponds, lakes, rivers and dogs don't mix!

I'll never forget this video I saw on the news last year when we were in Indianapolis. Some very cool firefighters in Indianapolis saved Biscuit from the icy river.


We've been real careful around our property here in Tennessee this Winter. There are three ponds on the property, and when it gets cold, they ice up! Mum always has us leashed up, especially around the ponds. 'Cause this is what I like to do, go ice skating!


Not even hip high rain boots on Mum could save me out there, in that deep cold water if I got stuck.

BTW, Gracie doesn't like it when I try to go out and ice skate on the pond, she grunts when I do and paws at the ice. Maybe she knows something I don't...It's just not safe out there!!

How come Gracie is so smart Johann? I mean it's kind of crazy to go out there on that ice like that!! :)

Oh, it must be such a worry at this time of the year. Stay safe!

And Happy New Year!

You are right Johann, Gracie doesn't like you out there. We are sure your mum would save you though, even if she didn't have the proper boots.
