Sleddin' Annie

This picture is a bit dark, but it's 5:00 pm, after work... and my hubby is doing a test drive on my sled that he just got all fixed up. :) Isn't it pretty...
He decided to take Annie for a ride... look at her all hunkered down... her first motor ride other than the car.
She bailed at the back of the property!
I picked her up and held her on the next go round. She sat zipped in my coat for a little more comfort. She was still pretty wiggy... We don't know yet if we will make a motor-head out of her or not. Blue was a complete motor-head, "I wanna go I wanna go".
Annie get's carsick! Everytime I take her for a ride she pukes, I was hoping she would outgrow it and want to go... we have yet to see that day.
I don't know if she will be the motorcycle ridin' Jack Russel that Blue was, but either way we will love her just the same. We're just presenting her with opportunities to see if she likes them or not at this point. As far as snowmobiling goes... she did better on the 2nd round, and she hasn't lost her cookies yet.

She's a cutie, even if she isn't so sure about the riding thing. Are you happy with your fixed sled?

Wow, great looking sled. I hope Annie gets over her "fear" and her tossin' her cookies.

Wow! You have a lot of snow!!! We are in the 70s here but expecting some strong storms today and tonight. I hope nothing like they got in the midwest. At least now I have a big basement to hide in if Tornadoes hit.
Annie might just grow up to be a motorhead you never know. Lady isn't the best car rider, she gets so hyper but doesn't puke.
She says "woof woof" to Annie!
Hope your skimobile works great now, it sure is pretty!

Great looking sled...I have never been, looks like fun. My kids do the same kind of thing only on the water, in the Keys, I have never done that either. Annie and I could sit together and watch.
BE BLESSED :-)
