Brrr.. New Year's Day was frigid. This poor boy's toes kept freezing up so I brought out the mittens. (aka-boots) An initial struggle was soon over followed by a nice prance. (trying to figure out how to walk in them) Here he is, so fancy, with his fleece mittens. I know.. I know.. it really isn't a fashion statement in this case it is function. For those owners who need to use boots, I use the cheap ones that the iditarod dog use... give it a try - at $2.50/pair it is a good investment. Go to www.dogbooties.com. And, if he loses one, it is not a costly loss and they fit good too.
Now we are ready for the trails. We headed to Ghiloni Park in Marlboro. Oh yes! We had the park and the trails to ourselves. Norwood took full advantage of it. The ice cold gusts blowing against our face. The snow draped pine trees. Fresh tracks in the trails. We had a great time... expect I could not keep up. I wish I had a furry face and four legs some days.. today was one of them.
It was a beautiful clear blue sky mitten wearing kind of day!
