The snow that we've been waiting for has finally arrived. The forecast has called for 50cm! It started falling last night and big, wet flakes have been falling steadily all day long. Oslo and I got ready to go to my sister's this afternoon, and on our way out we spotted Chase, a 6-month-old Brittany Spaniel outside. They enjoyed a half hour frolic before we got in the car. An exerpt of their play, you can see that Oslo has a bit of old man in him now:

Fue la primera vez que hicimos el viaje los dos solos. Ha sido bien, sin problema, y hicimos los 1,253km en un dia. Oslo paso la mayoria del viaje durmiendo en su sitio. Una companera, P, me preparo una cajita de caprichos de navidad:

It's been pretty cold in these parts lately. There is a lot of salt on the streets now, so I use Invisible Boots on the pads of his paws to protect them and keep them moisturized. I picked it up from Wag in the Glebe for $8.99, and I've seen it at Bark & Fitz in Westboro. This works until about -20. When the temperature gets this low we can only go a few steps before a paw is lifted and a pair of big brown eyes looks up at me. So the actual boots go on. Dog boots are a pain in the butt. First, you have to put 4 of them on, getting around two dew claws, making sure that they're pulled on high enough, and you tighten the velcro enough to reduce the chances of them falling off while walking. They're going to fall off.
