Mini-Adventure: Beach Lake Fun

Beach Lake in Birchwood is still frozen over enough to walk all over. Just follow the tracks of others and avoid the obvious holes where people have broken through (just kidding). Shila got to wear her special little coat we call the armadillo coat. The picture doesn't do it justice, but the videos below do. She looks pretty silly in the coat.

Shila ran off a little bit, which always worries us. We had her off leash in the middle of the lake and she still picked up a scent and went running to the shore to hunt it down. We just bought a training collar that should help out with that in the future. It worked wonders on Sam when he had one (THEN TOOK OFF AND PROCEEDED TO HIDE SOMEWHERE IN A BOG). Sigh...

I'm opening up this post to a little competition. Send me a link to a video or photo of your dog doing a trick. Here's a Shila Trick for everybody:

Speak (but can't seem to sit).

Sam doing his thing, Shila doing "UP!" with quite a bit of spring.

Just publish a comment or send me an email.
