After nearly 14 weeks of TPLO surgery recovery, we finally were all able to go for a walk in the park. Hu-dad was so out of practice from taking us all walking that he said we were a handful. We think that is a good thing.

But he also didn’t have everything in the Jeep. He remembered our water cooler, but he totally forgot to pack our trail bowls! He found a cup in the car, so we had to do a little improvisation to drink some water.


Feeling a little pressured, Q-Tip?


And some of us did have a little issue with the size of nose to size of cup ratio.

    Kodi and Nico have had to improvise like this many times. Doggone human error!

    Mom sez: – I couldn’t help but laugh at Kiska with the makeshift “water bowl”. Ayla had the neatest, “pointiest” little “beak” that could get right to the bottom of a yogurt cup with no problem at all. Ice has a much broader “beak”, and has the same problem as Kiska is having.

Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
