It has been a Month!

Only thing better than this would have been Heli sking!
Since the horrible drive from Jasper to home! Hard to believe. So what have we done in the last week. Well winter was still here last Sunday but it was -8 and a beautiful sunny day. We broke a new snow shoe path and played out a Border Collie!! Davie really likes the snow.

Then on Monday we had a visit from a moose that left Davie his own pile of fresh frozen turds. Apparently you don't roll in them any more, they are actually yummy!
And he got to meet Kim who started all this! Thanks Kim!

Best of all on Wednesday the moose was standing in the back yard and Davie saw him up close from the back window. Apparently BCs don't bother this moose he bedded down in the back and had a 4 hour rest then moved to the front and trimmed the apple trees. And actually did quite a good job. I won't have much to do in the spring.

Saturday was a busy day. Davie got to come to work with me and rest in the truck. It was a short work visit so he was quite happy to have a nap. Then the fun began we went down to the Agriplex to watch the Top Dog Agility Trial. We sat up in the stands and people came to meet him. He was a perfect gentleman and got to meet a terrific bunch of dog people and eat a WHOLE bunch of treats. Thanks to everyone who was sooo welcoming. It is wonderful to be able to have help from such a great bunch of people. He was comfortable enough that we made a short swing through the crating area to go find some of those nice people. He loved watching the dogs run!!
After that if was time for Davie to get to go into the real bush. We went for a two hour walk/snowshoe up one of our favorite trails. There he got to see the really big trees. He is now sound asleep on the ceramic floor in the bathroom. He opens an eye once in a while to make sure I am still here.

Oh yes and spring arrived today. It was +9!!  Tomorrow we are going to go sledding with the huskies and probablt drop in on the Top Dog Agility trial again. Then this week we start classes with Davie. And continue working on trusting the man person in the house. We are still scared of him and he is being very patient. We are close.
