Checking out the open country

Yesterday I got enough rabbits and there was no wind forecast which is a rarity here in Newfoundland in the winter so I put on the skis and headed in the open country. There was no wind but with the overcast and flurries I saw whiteout conditions a time or two. Its supposed to be a bit breezy tomorrow so I will have the snowshoes on and head for the woods. The barrens is no place to be in the wind with drifting snow

Snowshoes are required

I took a week off work. We have lots of snow great for skis and snowshoes. I will be heading out every day for snowshoe hares with a day or two for seaducks (Eiders)
Ptarmigan for supper, rabbits ( what we call hares) Tomorrow

I have been getting out for an occasional afternoon looking for snowshoe hares and there are a few around. It is nice to see the evenings start to get a little longer as well.

My dogs both have a mild cough that is hanging on. I have spent about 500.00 in vet bills but we cannot find out exactly what is wrong. The dogs have their normal energy and appetite but have an occasional cough and engage in frequent headshaking as if they have an ear infection. They have been treated for French heartworm/lungworm and have been on antibiotics but still the coughing.
The vets here don't know whats wrong. Anyone have any ideas?


Back to a normal winter
