The child like behavior from dogs is so beautiful.
Moose is still a goofy puppy of course and watching him discover a new, fun activity is pure joy.

Moose discovered how much fun it is to slide down a hill on his back.
I have a neighbor whose front lawn has a pretty good slope. This morning Moose went up on the lawn, laid down and pushed himself down the lawn on his side. He slid right onto the sidewalk, got up, ran to the top again, laid down, but this time when he pushed off he rolled onto his back and slid down belly up.
I stood there videoing for 20 minutes as Moose kept doing this.
I love it when dogs play like little kids.
Not having such a goofy, easy going dog for so long, it's the simple things about having a dog that I've been missing.

Wish I could post the video, but my computer is not behaving.I'm doing this via iPhone.

I LOVE when my dogs get goofy, which in Tia's case is pretty much all the time. I started using the playground equipment at the park we frequent to get Tia use to different surfaces & things that move slightly under her. I even had her go down the slide with me. Now I can't keep her off the slides! LOL. I also can't keep her out of the tunnels in the dog park.

Bravo, Moose applause

I hope that both you and the fur child never lose your sense of wonder and... joie de vivre!
