Springtime at the kennel brings warm temperatures and sunny skies. It also brings the melt! Nearby fields and lower lying parts of the kennel disappear under a few inches of water as we wait for both the ground the river to thaw to take all the water away. The road out of the kennel is a little treacherous but at least the underside of the truck gets a good clean each time!

We utilise the dog barn and higher pens for those dogs that are getting soggy feet. Mud is the order of the day so we've replaced our warm insulated boots for rubber boots and our warm pants and jackets for waterproof bibs and T-shirts. It won't take long for the water to drain away but in the meantime everything looks a little brown.
