Winter Fun for Everyone!
When we lived in the city I really wasn’t very fond of winters. Winter meant even worse driving or commuting conditions, gross grey frozen dirt/snow banks, and lots of hibernating. The only fun winter brought came when we left the city and headed skiing or up to our cottage where we could really enjoy the great outdoors.
Now, living in the country where the snow stays white and you can make the most of the weather and your surroundings, I love winter. And I love all the winter activities.
One activity I’ve been doing a lot more of recently (thanks Dad & Sue for the snowshoes!) is snowshoeing. It’s been high on the rotation with Eddie recently.
It’s such fun! We both get lots of exercise and it’s awesome to watch Eddie bound through the forest and the deep snow. With the crazy cold wind recently, hiding deep in the forest has been extra awesome. We stay protected from the wind and enjoy the cold days.
He is so tuckered out when we get home, which is also awesome. (He loves the arm knit blanket!)
We’ve definitely been increasing our activity levels with Eddie. He was (and continues to be a bit) very out of sorts when we said goodbye to Hermann. He was the yin to Hermann’s yang, and thus needed to find his place in the new family dynamic. For us that has meant a few changes in routines, going to different hiking spots, and starting up new activities together – like snowshoeing. It’s been good for all of us:)
What winter activities do you enjoy doing with your dog?
