It was late in the day, 16 degrees and with a whipping wind. Last time I took Mak out in such cold I felt guilty to see him shiver. Even wearing his winter parka he would be miserable. So I filled two medium sized Kong toys with Alpo Snaps and capped them with peanut butter. Once he had the Kongs, the world disappeared as did my guilt for leaving him behind.
Managing one dog is much easier than two, so Rollo enjoyed the treat of being on a modest long line! We had a grand time skirting the swamp in golden setting sun……and walking the hushed silence among towering hemlocks.The experience was capped by a fire next to an iced up creek……and a full moon rise over the frozen swamp. Life doesn’t get better! March, 2017
