Sledding at Hazel Run 2009

December 15th, 2009, 02:39 PM
The Hazel Run Daddy got the Hazel Run Mama a new sled.
60639
The Leaf Hauler Sled is looking mighty small next to the new Ice Fishing Hauler.
The HRM will be able to stretch her legs a bit and maybe fit an extra dog inside :D

When the snow arrived, the HRM was quick to groom the sledding trail!

60640
"Watch out, dawgs!!! Outta da way!!! Eeeeeeeekkkk!!!!"

60641
"Move it, guys. Here comes Mom and she's lookin' mighty mean!"

The Pack stepped off the sled run and watched the HRM creep by at blazing snail speeds.

"She gets mighty excited about nothin', doesn't she, Ms Macie?" giggled Deputy Brier.

"Ember! Wanna take a ride with yer ol' Ma?"
60642
"Um, no thank you, Mom. But I'll race you to the bottom of the hill!!"

60643
"Ready! Set! Go!!!"

The HRM finds herself seriously outgunned in the speed department.

"Next year we put in a lift!"

60645
"Grace, you want a ride, don't you?"

"Nope! You're too slow!"

Great pics HRM, looks like you were having a blast!:D

hazelrunpack
December 15th, 2009, 02:54 PM
Up the hill for another run...and the HRM is still looking for takers.

"You want a ride, don't you, Cass? Daddy won't be out here taking pictures all day!
60648
"Don't you want your picture taken in the sled with Mom?"

60649
"I'm pretty sure the Princess~Queen would never want to have photos taken of her in such
an amazingly undignified position, Mom!" whuffed Grace.

"Aw, c'mon, Cass! You only live once!"
60650
"Um... No."

hazelrunpack
December 15th, 2009, 02:58 PM
60651
"Well, okay then. How about a race? The track is getting faster! I can beat you now!"

The race was on!
60652
Once again the HRM ate dust....urm....snow as the dogs left her in their tracks.

Grace managed to stay ahead of her just by walking. :rolleyes:
60653

"Unfair!" yelled the HRM. "I wasn't ready!" :o

hazelrunpack
December 15th, 2009, 03:03 PM
60654
"I'm ready for a ride, Mom!" barked Princess Lil Belle. "Hurry up!"

60655
"Yay! Make yourself comfy, Lil Belle!"

60656
"My face is already chapped sufficiently, Lil Belle. You can stop licking it now!"

hazelrunpack
December 15th, 2009, 03:09 PM
60657
"Here we go, Lil Belle!"

"Stop struggling, Lil Belle!!! I can't see! We're getting off course!"
60658

60659
"Help me, here, Lil Belle! Help me!" :yell:

hazelrunpack
December 15th, 2009, 03:12 PM
"No way, Mom! YOU got us into this! You get us out!
60660
"You don't expect a regal Princess to work, do you?"

60661
"Arrghhhh! I give up Lil Belle...let's start over before Dad takes the camera in."

Luvmypitgirls
December 15th, 2009, 03:13 PM
:laughing::laughing::laughing:
Omg great pics, love the expression on Lil Belle's face in that last one!

hazelrunpack
December 15th, 2009, 03:18 PM
60662
"Okay! This is better!"

60663
"Lil Belle, I can't see around your butt!"

"You don't need to, Mom! You're not going fast enough to hit anything!"
60664
And the Princess abandoned ship...er...I mean, sled.

"Come back, Lil Belle!" called the HRM.
But the Princess was showing the HRM the true meaning of speed...

hazelrunpack
December 15th, 2009, 03:25 PM
...and the Hazel Run Mama got beat down the hill one last time.

Hazel...Just fantastic!!! Looks like you and the gang were having a great old time. I would hate to even think of the expressions on the faces of my priss pants if they even had to get too close to the cold!!
Sled On!! :highfive:

It is an absolute blast, LMPG! :D It was pretty cold, though...lucky for you guys or there would have been even more pictures! :laughing:

Somehow, I can't see cats enjoying this sort of thing, either, qmc! :laughing: Not even Maine Coons! :cat:

But if they ever express an interest in trying, you know where to come :D

I thought you were retired? You look a little young to be, so you can't use age anymore as an excuse to ummmmm, *cough*, loosing your memory :laughing:

hazelrunpack
December 15th, 2009, 03:44 PM
That was hazel. She's younger than the rest of us. :o madame hazel is actually well into her 80s :p

:laughing:

I'm voluntarily retired...as in: I quit to take care of the dogs when we increased the Pack size :D

Cass in the Rocker...:cloud9::lovestruck:

I wish it wasn't so cold there HRM, cuz I would've loved to have seen more pics of you blazing down the hill at blazin snail speeds, eating snow behind the pack :laughing:

Great pictures and great story, I love your dogs, they are all so beautiful!:cloud9:

Hazel , you look like such a kid and I love you for it ! :2huggers: the pics are too funny , too bad they didn't wanna share the sled with you , other than Lil Belle :thumbs up

hazelrunpack
December 15th, 2009, 05:10 PM
Ya, those ingrates. :frustrated: No one would humor Mama when the camera was out. The minute hubby went inside with the camera, Lil Belle cooperated twice, all the way down the hill! What a snot!! :dog: :laughing:

Thanks, LMPG. Glad you enjoyed the sledding :D

hazelrunpack
December 15th, 2009, 05:11 PM
Oh, and I only looked like a kid cuz I was wearing hubby's coat...it was way too big so I look like I'm in hand-me-downs! :laughing: I busted the zipper on mine, though :o

Very cute Hazel :lovestruck:

hazelrunpack
December 15th, 2009, 05:40 PM
She really does seem to like it, Chaser. Lil Belle is the only one who climbs in without help :dog:

She thinks mom is too slow, though. She likes it better when the track is icy and the wind sweeps her ears back :laughing:

No wonder you love the snow so much .....you're just like a big kid. :crazy:

The pics and captions are hilarious :D and love Cass in the rocker. :cloud9:

hazelrunpack
December 15th, 2009, 08:24 PM
But it's not just me!! The dogs love the snow, too! :D They feel so smug when they can pass me at walking speed :laughing:

And as much as the dogs snicker as they pass, I'll bet that if snails could stand the cold and move in winter, I could beat one down the hill in the sled :frustrated:

:laughing:

We wanted to go sledding again today, but it was just too cold. :sad: We spent a little time out in the heated kennel building, warming our paws and admiring our new sled, though... :thumbs up

Maybe tomorrow it will be warm enough :fingerscr

lol, you should wax the bottom of your sled and totally freak the puppers out as you zoom by...great story once again.:thumbs up

hazelrunpack
December 15th, 2009, 08:37 PM
hubby just looked at the thread and told me he didn't buy me a new sled--he bought me a bona fide Snow Cruiser! :laughing:

Wax might just work, aslan. I think we have some old ski wax around here somewhere! :D I'll probably end up slamming into the fence at the bottom of the hill though! :rolleyes: :p

I'm thinking hay bales or very large pillows! :laughing:

In that case, I should be picking up speed quickly as the days go on! :laugh:

So is that your neighbour in the background of the one pic? Do they think you are totally insane? :rolleyes:


Actually, that was hubby...which confused me, cuz didn't he take the pics? :confused: But madame hazel looked into her crystal ball and reminded me that hazel took that pic of Belle. :o have I mentioned that we're a little bit senile at times? :rolleyes:

As to whether or not the real neighbors think I'm totally insane? Well, of course the neighbors do! They're my in-laws, and as is often the case, noone is good enough for their son! :laughing: Plus they know me well, making the total insanity hard to hide. :o

and the comments after are too funny! you all where talking about waxing up the snow cruiser and I could just picture Hazel blazing down the hill like Chevy Chase in National Lampoons Christmas and all the dogs at the top of the hill with their mouths hanging open in shock! :laughing: :laugh::mwaha:

I love them all :cloud9:.

Blazing speed :cloud9: Oh, how I wish! :laughing:

I did try again a little today. Lil Belle was more than cooperative because there was no camera. And at one point we did manage to slide almost all the way to the fence! :thumbs up So I think the sled run is starting to get fast!!!! :fingerscr

The Pack still has no trouble catching up and passing us on the way down. At one point, Brier trotted alongside us all the way down, head-wrestling with Lil Belle while she sat on my lap in the cruiser.... :rolleyes: :laughing: Still...Grace can't keep ahead just by walking anymore. :D

Ahh, that explains that. You said hubby took the pics so when I saw him in that pic I thought neat, he can be in two places at once! :rolleyes:
I had some in laws that felt that way too. Now they are ex in laws. :D

The last couple of years we have had quite a bit of snow. But still not as much as the surrounding areas. I'm about 20 minutes away from klm and kr. We are supposed to get stuff that actually may stay on the ground this weekend. Right now we have none. But it's been freakin' cold!!!

December 16th, 2009, 11:13 PM
