Our human likes to get up way too early. This time we went with her. Sometimes the best part of the day is the part that we are usually asleep.
Over Christmas we went to visit family where there is a lot more snow! Not only was there a ton of white-stuff up the mountain, it happened to be snowing the day we went ‘snowpawing’. We went in search of a small cabin with our dog friend Luki and his humans. It didn’t take long for Keel to get in the groove, but Bolt preferred to stay in the human’s jacket, as his long hair was a magnet to the snow!
It had been months since we had been on the water in a kayak, so we were both a little uncomfortable.
Bolt decided to venture out to the bow of the kayak and of course did not last long before he fell in. He surprised the human by being completely relaxed… Perhaps once the water warms up he will go for an intentional swim?
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Cat-ch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
Last August we got to spend a week on our human’s sailing boat. The boat provided endless cupboards to hide in and a whole deck to explore. Bolt even got to try out kayaking! Our human made us a life jacket to wear, thankfully we didn’t have to test it out. We definitely had our sea legs after a week aboard.

We hiked three hours up along a frozen waterfall until we reached an alpine lake! We discovered we were good at ice-climbing and scrambling, but not so keen on waterfalls. At the lake we cuddled up in our scarves and layers while the humans took photos. We sure slept well that night!
