Sun!

After days of rain, rain and more rain we finally got some SUN. It might not be so obvious in the photos since we’re in the woods. But trust us. There was blue skies and high spirits. I took the camera along and got some photos of my little needlenose! IMG_2161

Being all objective and everything I’ve got to say she’s pretty darn cute!

She’ll even stand still and pose for a while which is a huge improvement! IMG_2245

I just can’t seem to get a decent action photo of her, though…

Boots – Pawz

We’ve been skiing again!

Fourth time for Gummi and this time we did 5 kilometers. The previous trips were 2.5, 2.5 and 3.5. Although the average speed is higher than when walking the main reason I increase gradually is that he needs to learn new rules – like not crossing the ski tracks without permission and to make sure he doesn’t hurt a paw or otherwise injures himself with the increased amount of running.

Gummis paws are (unfortunately) not as strong as I’d wished. If he gets to run around by himself in the snow barefeet he tends to end up bleeding.. so we’ve been searching for dog boots that fit and (this is the tricky part) stay on!

The boots he’s been wearing these last few days are the deflated baloon style boots from Pawz. It was Brutus the Frenchie that introduced us to them a few years back, but we haven’t actually tried them until this winter.

Our review: Although they look sooper stoopid, they stay on very well even on the smooth legs of breeds like the staffie. The main balloon part is wider than necessary and a few times he’s stepped on one. I might get him one size smaller for the back legs as those feet are smaller. They can be a pain to get on, but not a lot more so than other dog boots. They are convenient when you put them on inside as they give nice grip on smooth floors. They don’t provide any kind of warmth, but they prevent snow to be packed between the toes and that’s the most important thing.

We have several other kinds of boots, too, that we’ll tell you more about another day!

Lovely walkie with Turbo!

Birgitte and Turbo joined us for a walk while up by the lake! He’s a little grumpy at times and didn’t want to wrestle with me, but we still had lots of fun!

I’m a Superhero!

I’m a superhero – but I think you already knew, didn’t you?!

“Gummi has mastered the ability to change shape into a gorilla, however doing so drains his flexibility for one minute. Additionally, he developed the talent to make duplicates of himself and he can transform any penguin into titanium. Gummi has learned to communicate with dinosaurs from a distance and he combats assailants using a magical club that can force attackers to freeze in place. Additionally, he is able to edit the memories of others. Unfortunately, Gummi is especially vulnerable to ice-based attacks. ”

BOL! I’ve used the Random Superhero Generator – you can find it here: http://www.rps.net/cgi-bin/stone/randpower.pl What are your super powers?!

Oh yeah – Mom’s one, too! ” Ane is known for her awesome proficiency at concentration. She also has the power to copy all powers of her enemies and she has been known to become tiny. Ane possesses the power to force germs to ramble incoherently and she has the ability to become invisible. Additionally, she battles assailants wielding a lethal sword that also grants a legendary fame throughout the nation. Sadly, Ane takes harm from exposure to rock. ”

They really got that last part right! Mom slipped on a root while out walking and smashed her hip into a rock when she fell.. Methinks she got that “fall” thing all wrong. It’s the SEASON itself, Mom, no falling required. Unless you’re a leaf.

Kisses,
Gummi
