A small unexpected snow storm reminded Bear that winter would be here soon. He headed out to finish chopping up some wood.
Dog thought he was helping by sitting on the wood that was in the wagon.
Soon Dog was bored and wandered off to play in the snow. "What's this?" said Dog "Could it be my beach ball that I lost this summer?" Dog tried and tried to dig it out of the snow but it was stuck.
The ball was frozen in the snow. Bear had to get out his shovel to try to dig it out.
After what seemed like forever to Dog, Bear was able to break the ball free from the ice.
Dog played with the ball until it was time to go inside. This time he brought it in so it wouldn't get stuck in the snow again.
