Well, hello there! I'm gonna make bit more of an effort to keep posting here, so stick around and enjoy the show, haha.

Winter was pretty easy around here, not too much snow, just enough really. Warmer than normal temps for the most part made it easy. Oh, except for the part when the window on the truck canopy smashed due to the cold. There was that.

So now, April 7 seems to officially be the day it really feels like spring around here! Why you ask? Let me tell you.

1. Our scungy pond #1 is now open water

2. The dogs are muddy, disgusting messes
Pirate dog, Howler is pretty clean here for once!
 3. Poop is no longer frozen solid masses of excrement
I'd put a picture of sloppy poop here, but I might lose one of my 8 followers...
 4. Ivy annihilated a grouse the other day, earned herself her very own evening snack and here Maggie finds the remains the next day - hoo boy was she excited!!! She ran like the dickens when she thought another dog (or me!) might steal it from her. Why she thinks I'd pry that disgusting mess out of her mouth, I'll never know. Ugh, dogs.

5. Road biking has begun, here we come Kluane Chilkat Bike Relay!

Aaaand it's February...

So this winter has kind of been a non-winter, temps have been fantastic! Only a few -30's...

The crazies and their lead crazy.

I was away for a week at xmas and my lovely dog sitter/surrogate aunt took over the crew. They looooove her and she spoils them rotten. They were a wee bit excited when I got back though, so much that Louis & Fossey knocked a gate down!

While I was away, George had a weird "vestibular" incident. This happened a few years ago to my ol' girl, Kate. Unfortunately she never recovered. George was a bit off balance and had the head tilt for a few days but she is like a brand new, 15yr old again!

 There she goes, off and running a couple weeks ago!

 I tell her not to go through the deep snow, but does she listen? Hell no.


Howler/Fossey playtime

This was when we had a good dumping of snow and it wasn't all melty/freezy.

I'm afraid Earthling prefers the couch these days, whupps! That's my fault, haha.

And to finish it off with the nutbar that is Pooh Bear!
 Backstory: she was playing ball. She was running around like a lunatic. She came back with blood splattered all over her face/shoulders and even on her pups! She managed to cut/bite her tongue. Did that stop the enthusiasm? Well if you know PB, you know the answer is HELL NOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's a nice video of her inability to focus on anything BUT the damned ball! You can also hear my panic & concern for her, HAHA!

Aaaaand it's December

Ok, I'm back! Between dropping my phone and smashing the crap out of it, and one of the dogs getting a hold of it (ok, so it fell out of my pocket in one of their pens) and using as a chew toy, let's just say it's been difficult to post. Damned dogs!

Last post Maggie was wounded. She healed fine. Then Howler decided he wanted the attention so he somehow managed to rip his inner thigh open too! I have no idea how he did it because I was watching him the whole time. But, he is Howler. He has a knack for these things. He's fine now though! Everyone else is good.

Oh wait, that's not true. Willow screwed up her neck and could not move without screaming for a couple of days. Off to the vet's and we drugged her up good. It took a couple of weeks but she is on the mend, yay! And now is a big fan of acupuncture.
Eh, what the hell are we doing here again?!?!

Excuse me, I feel some pokey things in my neck/head area, any ideas?

 I'm also having a lot of fun with Vine these days - those 6 second videos for those of you who aren't aware...

Here is a little teaser on what happened to me recently. Slightly stranded in the boonies, cutting wood, middle of winter, -21C, whoopsies! All because I'm a cheap-ass who had to cut her own wood.  Yay for me!

What else... we have almost NO snow right now and the temps are ridiculously warm. After a few days of -25ish, it's now -5C! Or warmer. And I have to say, I am not complaining. It seems I am lazier as I get older, ha!

How adorable is this little Maggie turd? She comes to wake me up in the mornings and will dive bomb me if my head is under the covers. Best. Waker. Upper. EVER!

How are you all, my 9 faithful readers, doing these days??

Oh and I have much more to share, I was also in Juneau, Alaska recently! That was a blast. More on that later! :)
