It was so cold on my run last weekend I had to wear a toque (wool hat for you non Canadians), a jacket and mittens (my hands are ridiculously cold all the time). That run inspired me to do the closet swap – you know – pack all your summer clothes up and bring out the sweaters. Gotta love life in the north. I shouldn’t even bother putting winter clothes away for the short “hot” season we get, but it is more out of principle.
Did you know we had 3.5 months snow free this year? Pretty amazing hey?
Regardless of the cold, I am still loving running in the wilds right now. With no bugs and the beautiful colours who could resist?!
Kobi has been loving the cooler weather and has 4-7 epic squirrel or grouse chases every walk and run. Unfortunately one of these epic chases resulted in an injury, a back injury of all things. She must have slipped or tripped as all I heard was a yelp and then she wasn’t keen on jumping up anymore.
I drove her 390km (230ish miles) one way (and then back again) to see a veterinarian as we were pretty worried (no vet in my town). No fractures or breaks, but she’s on anti inflammatories and is going to need 3 weeks of rest. Ever tried containing a hyper-super-fit dog for three weeks? It’s not going to be easy. Poor Kobi. She is showing signs of improvement already so everything should be a-okay soon enough.
How many months snow free do you get? Any ideas on how to keep a hyper dog calm without excessive exercise?
