So on the coldest day of the year so far, we went for our afternoon walk - everyone, even Maizee the sissy pants. A few friends in the neighbourhood and I tend to go around 4pm daily which gives the people a chance to talk about their days and gives the dogs a chance to catch up on sniffing butts and some good natured wrassling. Today, however, was the walk to end all walks - 13 dogs and 7 people and nary a camera in sight. Kristie and I had both glanced at our cameras on the way out the door and thought, "Naw it's too cold, nothing interesting ever happens when it's this cold." We had a Golden Retriever, Miniature Schnauzers, Corgis, Labrador Retrievers, Australian Shepherds and a few rare breeds (dogs of inter-racial descent). What a great time we all had, until we realized it's really freakin' cold out here - dogs started holding paws up and humans started losing feeling in various body parts. The decision was made to come home and so we did. The moral : take your damn camera with you, then you won't be looking through the archives for filler pictures (even though the subject matter is quite pretty)!
