Winter's Last Walk

Today (Thursday) is the last full day of winter. We are due for rain on Friday so I got the dogs out for a final winter walk this afternoon. Max, Maya, and Daisy. It was cool and cloudy, not a pretty day so there were not a lot of people out. We encountered one guy on a mountain bike but otherwise had the trails to ourselves. I hadn't slept well the night before so I was low on energy, but walking brought some out of me from somewhere. I was shooting for five miles, but then went on to six, seven, and finally finished with eight miles. That was a pretty long walk with three dogs. Fortunately, there were no deer sightings. The trails are finally getting dried out with only a few muddy sections remaining, but of course it's supposed to rain tomorrow.

Winter is over and tick season is upon us. I found the first one on my leg when we got home. Time to break out the bug spray for me and the Frontline for the dogs.

After we got home, I had some things to do outside to prepare for the rain tomorrow, I fed the dogs, and then had a little playtime in the dog yard with Ochie, Barkley, Daisy, and visiting Toquima. Bear goes to his foster home tomorrow. I hope that Daisy will be getting adopted on Sunday, so its a good thing that we've got Toquima for two weeks, we might be getting short on dogs. I think I'll take Felix to a Promises adoption event on Saturday; I'd love to find him a home now too.

Toquima is with us for two weeks. He moved right in like
he always does.
