Happy New Year

I'm a little slow with my New Years posting. We went back up to Dodge Ridge for a few days over New Years. It's amazing how much snow they got in one week. It seemed like 2 more feet, since our trip over Christmas.

We had a great time snow shoeing with the dogs. I think about 2 hours is their limit in the snow/cold. Even with the jackets on, they get chilled if you stop, so you always need to keep moving. We spent some time blazing our own trail and it made hiking a bit more difficult. The dogs didn't wander to far from the trail, because the powder was deep. They tried it a few times and decided it was better to stay on the trail (that's a first).

We're looking forward to some more trips to the snow.

Happy New Year!

  1. That's crazy...poor little buried-in-snow red Popsicles! My dogs get really cold after coming back inside- when their body is still cold, but they have stopped running around like lunatics generating their own body heat. I have to wrap them up & turn on a space heater for them when we get home from cold runs or they get the shakes.
