The dog days of winter - this one's for Jinksy




Riker and me

If you haven't seen me post
And you think I've turned a ghost

I'm really quite alive
But my world's become a hive

Dogs are here and there
Dogs are everywhere
And also there's the snow
That thrills me, as you know

Plus I'm tending a new blog
With pictures of a dog
Who's visiting my girls
And showing off his curls

So friends both old and new,
Before I say "adieu"
I'm posting some new pix
That shows what's in the mix

Thank you for the rhyming lesson and inspiration, Jinksy!

This young lady and her pup placed in the top 20
in the City of Lakes Loppet skijoring competition Saturday

@Nessa: Thank you! It's sure been a fun couple weeks!

Kathleen said...

@Willow: Amen to that! The legging thingies are THE warmest boots I've ever had. They're Steger Mukluks:

Patty Steger makes them; her husband, Will, is an artic explorer.

@Ellen: It's been nonstop fun around here!

Kathleen said...

@Rudee: Charlotte is quite a character and most definitely hams it up for the camera!

Kathleen said...

@Barb: Do say more!

Kathleen said...

@Merisi: So happy my goofballs could make you smile!

Kathleen said...

@Suldog: Oh, you are too clever! (thanks for taking a peek at Riker's blog!)

Kathleen said...

@Mimi: Hope you enjoyed the other blog! It's only going to be up for a limited time -- unless Riker's mom wants to keep it going!

Kathleen said...

@FHFD: Hey! It's great to have a visit from you. You might enjoy some pictures from the City of Lakes Loppet that featured a skijoring event with 130+ teams. Mine pix are here:

Beware the rhyming bug; once bitten, it often takes you by the...hand? Feet?...Throat? Nah... Ah, got it! Earlug!

Oh, what fun! Riker is a lucky dog to have you guys taking care of him!
