As you can see from the photos above, the weather was the main theme of this posting. We went from nice Spring like sunny skies with temperatures in the 20's Celsius to snow on two successive Sundays!
You have to Love It!
Luckily with the warmer temperatures, the snow accumulation on the ground didn't last for long. However, there is still snow/ice on parts of the training trail and in a couple of spots in the kennel.
Mostly now the kennel is clear and dry. Thanks to a great job by Thibault, most of the kennel is clear of the remnants of last Winters straw from the dog's bedding.
The dogs have been a bit confused with the crazy temperatures and seem totally complacent with the return of the snow.
However, there is now a new excitement for them with the return of the rabbits frequenting the kennel area to graze on the new plant growth. The rabbits fur has almost completely changed from its Winter white to its Summer brown. Nature, camouflage!
The frogs have now commenced their nightly mating serenade.
A true sign of Spring here at Miortuk.
Last weekend, I spent the Friday, Saturday and part of Sunday visiting a friend near Montreal and attending his wife's 50th birthday bash. It was held at a local Blue Grass Club in Montreal where we enjoyed an evening of wonderful musical entertainment, a nice snack and liquid libation along with some great company of friends. Friday evening, we enjoyed a fantastic dinner at a Portuguese restaurant. Thanks Phil, it was a great meal and a great evening.
On Monday, Thibault Souef departed from here to continue his Canadian Adventure.
Merci, Thibault for all your help here. You are truly a gentleman and great company. I really enjoyed your stay here at Miortuk. You are welcome back here any time.
Well, the sun is shining here and the forecast is for temperatures in the 20's for the next several days.
Until next week.......
