What a gorgeous way to end the day!
This was the hottest week so far this year. With Summer Solstice, came 30+ Celsius temperatures with high humidity.
Now the days start getting shorter, it won't belong until the start of a new season running the dogs.
Slowly everything is getting into place in preparation of a new season, harnesses all cleaned, 6 new harnesses added giving more flexibility in sizing, a trailer capable of transporting the ATV so we can train longer runs before the use of the sled and last but most important the addition of a second Handler/Trainee.
I would like to announce the addition of Carmella Stiebing who will be joining the Miortuk Team this Fall for the upcoming season. (See Handler/Trainee Page)
We desperately need rain, as with this extremely hot/dry weather, the forest is getting very dry. With the coming of Summer, more people will be visiting the forest for recreation & camping increasing the risk of forest fires.
The dogs are the smart ones in this heat, minimizing activity & digging under their housing finding a nice cool place to relax. With my kennel being in the forest, they have shade throughout the day to escape the penetrating rays of the Sun. Luckily, the nights here are considerably cooler making for comfortable sleeping.
Until next week........
