We had a warm and delightful evening walk yesterday. I love seeing the Labraduo together again, after R's long hiatus while he recovered from elbow surgery.
Not only do these two snuggle at home almost all the time but they also move in sync frequently when we're outside. Shyla is like a smaller and browner version of R at this instant.
The socks, for some bizarre reason, absolutely terrified her for a while (but the outdoor boots are no big deal). This morning, she initially went into "hiding" when I put on the socks. She was hiding in the same places as she hid during those traumatic first few weeks after she joined our family. Fortunately, over the course of the day, she's relaxed a bit.
The snow has had a strong crust in the mornings which could, in theory, injure paws. She usually can stand or walk on the crust but it starts breaking when she runs.
