Spring = Outdoors = OhBoyOhBoyOhBoy!

Well it's finally warm enough for the canine kiddos to enjoy being outside for more than just a few minutes at a time.

When wind chills are 20-below zero (F), which they have been for much of February here, it's dangerously cold even for our well-coated friends. During those cold snaps, they go outside to "get busy" and that's about it.

And then they get cabin fever. :o)

So, since temps bumped up into the 40s, Daddy-Don took Elsie and Baxter out for a good, long, psuedo-training walk and romp in the fields and woods near our home.

Just look how happy the Elsie-girl is:

Elsie is all Lab, no doubt about it. She possesses the strongest retrieving instincts of our crew (although our little Kenya-bean is looking VERY promising). And she and Baxter are best off-lead when Don takes them out (Ridge is best on-lead).

They all love being outdoors.

I'm so glad it's warm enough to get them outside for training and exercise again. :o)

Now, if only we could do something about all that mud.

'Til next time,
