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!
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!
I just can’t seem to get a decent action photo of her, though…
I hope you’re all having a great Sunday!
Pipette & Ane
We’re travelling again! This time we went up to the lake. We haven’t been there in AGES!
Look what we found!
He was a little scairt so I went out to get him!
Mwahahaha… He retrieves, I steal!
Mom brought our lighthouse, too!
Now it’s time for a nice, long NAP!
We spent almost two weeks at our cottage. Mom’s severely sprained her ankle and is on “crate rest”, but we left anyway!
Pipette had her very first boat trips
We went through the channel that goes trough the narrowest part of the island!
Pipette wasn’t entirely certain that the boat was a good place to be
Mom had to keep her leg up! ;)
I had a good time!
Pipette on top of the world! :)
Having a little chat with Virus on the porch!
Playing with my little sissy
Such a beautiful view from the deck!
Pipette is growing up
I found a STICK!
Butt tuck zoomies foxie-style!
This rubber walkway was a leetle scary!
Okay.. I’ll get on it again..
Sand = crazy puppy!
No I’m not!
A Swedish Curl? LOL…
Boi-oi-oing! Popcorn dog!

Come join us in the snow!
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!
Look what we’ve got!
But I’m not sure that skijoring thing is for me, staying on the right side of the tracks and keeping up is plenty challenging. I think Mom can move her lazy butt around on her own, thank you very much!
