Nice day for a ski... unless you have no shoes

My wife and I took our two dogs cross country skiing in Cheyenne Canyon this morning. It was a beautiful, sunny day, and with the recent storms there was plenty of great snow (a rarity on the Front Range.) We were having a ball but the dogs saw it differently. They got cold feet after a few miles and demanded in their own non-verbal way (holding up paws and looking pathetic) that we turn around. Stanley, our pint-sized pup, was lucky enough to get a ride down in the backpack, where he shivered the whole time, but seemed to enjoy the ride.

What a fun morning. Stanely definitely had it made, lol.

Very strange...'guess I've always had arctic type canines...Newfoundlands, Bernese Mt. Dogs and the like. They never complain about cold feet. In fact I regularly trim the fur between the bads of their feet since it tends to accumulate ice! Thermal mass may also be a factor I spose.

Best regards,
