On the weekend, because we can go for a walk in daylight, I decided instead of a traditional street walk, I would take the dogs snowshoeing in the bush behind our house. We were blessed with temperatures sitting around freezing last weekend. Our neighbour's own this land but are totally cool with us using it. The sound you hear is the crunching of the snow (as it had a hard crust) under my shoes.
Lee loves snowshoeing. Phod doesn't want to be left out but does not love it. I think that is because I make him wear his harness and because he is heavier he sinks more. In spite of this, as long as the temperature allows I hope we get to go every weekend we have snow!

Here are some other pictures I captured on my Olympus Tough camera (it is waterproof so the perfect camera to take on this type of adventure - as perhaps sometimes I get pulled over).

Hope you enjoyed a walk behind our house.
