First: The disappointment the Bergen will not be having puppies this year. We were very hopeful for this litter with her and Blue as they are two very great dogs and should have produced great puppies. But, it was not to be, maybe next year.
Second: The danger of forest fires this year. The forest is very dry and there are more fires this year in Southern Quebec. Most of the fires are being caused by human irresponsibility. With the warmer weather and a long holiday weekend approaching, there will be more visitors to the forest.
Please be very cautious with causing fires!
We the inhabitants of the forest are counting on your respect for nature.
With the coming of the warm weather the migratory birds are returning.
It is great to see the Swallow nesting in the bird house on the garage this year. They have been absent for the last two years.
They are a welcome site as they consume copious quantities of Mosquitoes.
The Canada Geese have been flying over all week long in very large flocks.
It is great to hear the calling as they pass over. It is one of the signals of Spring. The next time they will be heard is when they fly south in the Fall signaling the the commencement of another season of running the dogs.
The frogs are getting more boisterous with their nightly mating serenade.
Along with the cry of the Loon, the evening sounds here are fantastic.
The dogs are enjoying their rest time here longing in the Sun and chasing Butterflies. There are still many females that have not yet come into season. This is strange and it is not only here as many of my mushing friends are experiencing the same thing.
Natures cycle seems upset.
It is very still here this morning, signaling the approach of a storm.
So, I am out to to water the dogs and clean the kennel before its arrival.
Please be cautious if you are in the forest.
As the old adage goes "Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires!"
All of the Nature is depending on you!
Until next week....
