Winter is Coming.. ?

Kansas has always had strange weather, never consistent. This winter is already turning out to be a miserable one. Its just dreary and cold, nothing else to it. No snow, not even ice to pretty things up, not a lot of sun. Just a dead listless cold.

I think its starting to drive both of us crazy. Our house is TOO small and at the end of the day it feels like your trapped in a box. Taricha and her roommie dogs spend most of their time finding toys, bringing them to me, tugging for a minute, then running off to find another toy. Lets say that gets old when the room to play is a 10ft by 10ft area and a hallway of two steps length. You want to run and chase it? Oh, you cant, no room!

The dog parks have been our only winter saving grace. Taricha and her roommies will go bonkers the moment we get there and in about 15min, theyre both panting and forgetting about the cold.

We need more activities to do elsewhere. Last winter we had a larger house (she's spend half the day just zooming around it), and she was still a puppy so it was easier to entertain her. This year she's bored of most simple games and there's no room to romp. What else is there to do in the middle of winter?
