Last days of winter in the Helderbergs?

Today we had a gorgeous day, very warm (59F) and sunny. Probably all this snow will be gone soon as tomorrow is supposed to be even warmer. I went out multiple times with dogs and snapped some pictures. With so many young dogs and puppies, it is a challenge to give them all exercise and socialization opportunities.

I discovered that our 13-year-old Asko is a good company for Mielikki. So in the morning they are with us while we are having breakfast, and then I take them out for a walk. The first four pictures were taken during our morning walk today.

Sky can play with Mielikki only under supervision because he can be too rough on her, just like Bella is too rough on him. So Mielikki enjoys the company of middle aged and older dogs, who are patient with her. 

Anyway, it was a good days as most dogs got to run and spend some time in the sun. John is back from Trackfest, and we will write about it soon. I received a lot of nice pictures from Randy Vick from his last tracking season and will try to scan them tomorrow.

What lovely pictures. We have all snow gone. Sky is turning to a beautiful little lady. Very exciting to follow your pups....We will start soon with tracking training with Vilja and Trym....
