Snowing all day

It’s been snowing all day around 27th Street. The roads are pretty bad. I had a close call driving on the Queensway, even though I have snow tires on my Forester. I touched my breaks and I guess there was a patch of ice under the snow. Fortunately there was no traffic, as I did 3/4 of a spin, came to a stop, repositioned, and continued on my way.

The partners of course love the snow. Here’s a very brief video of Memphis and Georgie goofing around…

Good Morning Long Branch – Fresh dog biscuits going in the oven 7:30 am

George’s Posse

 

Georgie's ToysWhen you’re a pup  – it’s important to have some indoor friends.  G’s current posse is shown here.  The little pink shoe is a Georgie special – found and retrieved by him last summer – miraculously not chewed to bits.The Pink Shoe

Enjoying the snow at Jack Darling Park in Mississauga

The partners had a great time out at Jack Darling this morning. There were dozens of dogs out with their people enjoying the snow and the relatively mild day.  One dog, a Visla, loved being chased by George and they ran and ran. One thing about Newfs compared to smaller breeds, is that an hour goofing around at a dog park tires them out for hours. We’re back home now and I can hear the sleep-breathing of both of them.

Snowy weekend on the way for Long Branch! Memphis checks in for some snow-cone fun!

Morning walk, Jack Darling Park

The dogs love a car ride. I loaded them up this morning and drove west into Mississauga to Jack Darling Park, which has the best leash free area I’ve seen anywhere, designed around the water filtration facility. It’s big enough that the dogs get play time with lots of different dogs and also some time goofing around on their own.
