    Just like you have to know when NOT to run your stove, there are also certain days when taking the pup snowshoeing can result in disaster - I've finally learned that the temp has to be below 25 degree or else the snow starts to build up and feed on itself.

    Takes a long and hot shower to remove these snowballs!

    That's classics Willhound I love it !! He reminds me of our golden retriever we had for 14 years I could get that dog to do anything. He would listen better that the kids. Boy I miss him!!

    Must have been a well trained dog, to not go after rabbits. Mine loves to chase bunnies (and squirrels), although she's never succeeded in catching one (to my knowledge). The owls, hawks and lynx we have on the property do that for her. She's fine with cats though.
    When I first tried to get her to ride with me on the snowmobile, she would get on the seat OK, but as soon as I started the motor the racket would chase her off. That is until one day I went about 4 miles down the lake, with the dog following me. When I turned around to head back, and she caught up to me with her tongue hanging out the side of her mouth, she readily jumped up on the seat in front of me and enjoyed the ride home.

    Since that day, I have to push her off the seat to get the thing started, and occassionally if I leave the sled parked outside, I'll find her sitting on the seat just like in the picture, looking at me as if to say, "let's go ya idjit". Loves the ATV and boat too.
