Today's image is titled frisbee standoff and was photographed by Beth McConnell.
Dogs love snow, at least more so than your average human. Given that the week began with a blizzard, and is ending a blowing snow advisory, there is still time to take yours or a friend's canine outside to play in the frozen precipitation despite the impending approach of spring. This photo was taken at the Prairie Moraine Park on County Highway PB in Verona. As described by Dane County:
The Johnstown Moraine runs through the northern portion of the site and is an important element of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail, which runs along its narrow crest. This 160-acre park is ideal for viewing the moraine and provides an excellent area for interpretation of Wisconsin's glacial history. A portion of the park is also one of Dane County's dog exercise areas. The park offers both off-leash and on-leash areas for dogs. Dog owners and other visitors can enjoy the beautiful oak savanna.
A list of dog parks in Madison, as well as others in Sun Prairie, Middleton, and elsewhere in the county, is provided by the city of Madison Parks Division. More of McConnell's photos of dogs, cats, and a bestiary of many other creatures can be found in a photo set titled "Critters."
