Winter marches on


feb-18-cold.jpgThe temperatures have entered the sub zero range once again.  This is a particularly cruel stretch of cold.  The weekend held such promise with melting snow and readings above freezing on both Saturday and Sunday.  The freezer door has slammed shut once again.  Here is the crew on the path by lake Harriet on Monday afternoon.  We did not make a full lap of the lake we just swung by to see if it was possible and quickly realized that it would be ill advised.  If you can read dog body language they are saying: hurry up!

I got a question at the coffee shop other day that made gave me pause (a rarity).  I was inside getting a nice hot cup and there were 10 dogs sitting outside of the coffee shop when this person asked “do they bite?”.  On any given day, there may be 5 -10 people who stop and ask if they can pet the dogs or ask other questions but this one caught me off guard.  I hesitated and responded “yes, they do”, and left it at that.  Any dog will bite if they feel they have no other option but it is rarely their first response when interacting with a person.  I don’t know that that was the response the person was expecting.
