It has still been “chilly” in Two Rivers the last few days. Often times in the thick of winter, there is an inversion layer where warmer air rises in the hills — so we go train the teams where it’s warmer. We tried that a day ago only to find that it wasn’t any toastier up high.
Many of the dogs have protective jackets and all of them have booties on their feet. You’ll notice they are nibbling on frozen salmon — YUMMY. Several dogs have on neck lines. That is because we must cross a highway and travel several miles down a logging road. The dogs wearing necklines tend to have extra energy when we ‘stand still’ waiting for traffic. So this additional leash adds security that these guys won’t go play in that traffic.
