This week has been a mixture of warm, sunny days, cold nights and one night of 8 hours of rain. There has also been a lot of strong winds. This year there was had a lot of windy weather with stronger winds than normal.
There definitely been a shift in the weather patterns over the last several years with weather extremes. The last two Winters have been extremely cold and with February being a record coldest.
Also this year, there is a proliferation of Lady Bugs. Everyday there are hundreds of these little bugs in the chalet and houses all over the region. The reason for this, was an increased introduction of them a few years ago to combat an insect that was attacking the pine forest.
It seems wherever humans interferes with Nature, the results go a muck.
The dogs are still enjoying the spring weather and the kennel is slowly riding itself of the snow/ice that built up over the Winter. About 1/4 of the kennel is ice free and dry.
It is still too early to tell if Bergen is going to have puppies. But if I am reading the signs correctly, we should see puppies early may. By the 8th week, we should know for sure.
Puppy time is always exciting.
Living in the forest away from society has its perks. Making your own meals is one of them. The following photo, shows that we don't go without.
Until next week.......
