Genie playing snowball
Genie has always hated being wet, and can get pretty insulted about snow. Using the tennis ball helps to keep her engaged — at least for a while — in snowy conditions. It was challenging, with some of the really dry, powdery snow of the winter of 2013/14, to keep the tennis balls above the snow line. They would sink down into the snow and be gone, just gone. I imagine we’ll find them in the spring. Can’t wait!
