Here is how it works. Maggi says everyone is complaining about the snow. So she has turned that into a GLAD thing. Look! See the snow banks? Maggi can walk this old road without her leash!
See how happy she is. She loves it. She feels so confident and proud. She maps out the width of the road and feels the huge snow banks on either side!
She feels the slope of the snow bank when they first start to taper. See how she kind of walks with her wrists first? That is how she does it. She can also feel bits of gravel that the snow plow kicked up near the edge of the road.
So she can walk right along the rim and feel her way. She can also hear me, and she hears the humans too. They keep a very close eye on Maggi. They do NOT want her to lose her confidence. She gets lots of cues.
If Maggi miscalculates, she just runs up the soft snowbank a little ways like this... then she corrects herself.
Now she can go back and forth between the snowbanks. She knows they are there! She loves being able to go at her own pace. She loves to stop and take time to smell all the interesting smells! Hmmm..I wonder what she smells back there--hehehe--oops!
