Like many of you, we spent most of the 2 weeks post-Christmas in record breaking cold. With the wind, it felt like -40C/F (they feel the same).
My dogs don't do well in the cold, so we minimize our time outside (sometimes to like 30 seconds, just long enough for business). For the most part they did really well without their daily exercise. We did get 2 lovely days in a row and had long walks, and if the forecast was right, starting yesterday and for the foreseeable future, it should be more reasonable temperatures (like closer to freezing).
We have been dusting off our assorted puzzle toys.
We always talk about how brilliant our girl is (and she is) and we don't give our boy enough credit for being smart. He is also very smart, he is just much quieter about it. He is actually much better at doing puzzles because he isn't as food driven as Hailey and he is focused and careful.
Phod finished his puzzle first, so he went over and helped Hailey. She was totally fine with this. We are lucky they don't fight over food! He remembered you just had to lift up a piece to get the food.
Once Phod had enough, Hailey used her force to get the last of the cookies out.
