Now that the dogs aren't running in harness they need to stretch their legs and keep fit in other ways so we take them out free running! The other day we took Chica, Sissy, Scooter, Tig and Spicy out into the fields.
They enjoy the warm weather but need to cool themselves down so the all channelled their inner labrador when we came upon the puddles.
There is still some snow lying around, particularly the berms (making it difficult for the water to drain away) and some of the sled trails. Here's a pic of our exit trail - because probably 99% of our runs used this part of the trail it is very hard packed and is taking longer to melt than everything else.
Everyone will get to do lots of free walking and running this summer - watch this space for updates throughout the off-season.
