Bird Dog Beginnings

This a start to new mornings. Griff is quickly outgrowing our backyard snow paths, so this morning we drove to a short path not far from our house. I drive past this path just about every day wondering where it leads. I was a bit disappointed to find that it was so short and that it backs up to O's school, but then pleasantly surprised to find that there is a large field where we can do future training on.... at least once this mother load of snow melts!


I have to say, being woken at 6:30am by a dog whining to go out wasn't really what I had anticipated **yes, I'm naive**, and I also wasn't expecting to really enjoy our time. The sunrise was beautifully warm thru the crisp air and watching Griff tune in to new smells and bird sounds is quite fascinating. I'm actually looking forward to tomorrow mornings walk.


First Winter Storm of the Season

  We hustled home from church, only took us an hour... ugh. As soon as we walked in the door, the boys were clamoring for their winter gear. Thankfully all of our snow pants fit! Glad to dodge that bullet. Totally forgot that O doesn't have boots though, guess thats on the list to get this week. We all had a blast playing in the snow and I was glad it wasn't too cold!
