Dealing with Winter Weather

Saturday was one of those cold, rainy, foggy days that we often get in December. No problem, we are rough, tough, sled dogs used to dealing with winter weather. Right, Qannik?

nasty day

Oh. hi. Hu-dad, yes I did notice that it is a nasty day outside.

doesn't bother me

Being of sled dog heritage, that cold weather doesn’t bother me at all.


Now don’t bother me while I take a nap.

    Qannik, your ancestors may have been sled dogs, but you look more like a pampered pooch to me! In fact, I strongly suspect that you & the herd are some of the most pampered pooches of all time. Perhaps you better go sit in Hu-Dad’s lap & give him many kisses!

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
