We are being treated to a potentially large March snow storm. After spring weather softened us up, it suddenly got colder in the mornings a few days ago.
And the clouds started gathering on the Divide, sprinkling a little snow on us each night.
Neither Shyla nor I minded. At this time of year, I like the cold crisp weather and the touch of snow over the kinnickinnik (a.k.a. "bearberry") that covers much of our forest floor.
At the same time, I made a change to Shyla's training, reducing our higher-intensity training that involves lots of tugging and fast recalls to a couple of very short bouts each day. I read from a good source that a trainer's intensity (i.e., my intensity) can scare a sensitive dog.
Today, Shyla played enthusiastically in the snow storm, while wearing a bandana that was given to Angel K years ago. In case you can't read it, it says "Bark if you're Irish!".
