Lexis leads a tough, tough life.

The camera can't groom the dog.

Bullet is looking a little rough around the edges. I love a nicely groomed Schnauzer and try to keep him looking decent but have let him slide this winter. Those ears! They should be clean!

The winter wind flowing through Bullet's ear hair.

I prefer to groom all the dogs outside to limit the hair in my house. Usually we have a few warmer winter days that allow me to tidy up heads, feet and rears before I freeze, this winter I was working the only warm(ish) day we've had in months.

I have to admit that there is something really nice about the wash & go, run-a-brush-though-it maintenance of the Shepherd coat... until heavy shedding season hits that is. Then there is nothing better than a shaved Schnauzer!

Crossing a lake without a boat.

We crossed over Puslinch lake today with it's fishermans huts.

With the snowmobiles and trucks driving on it I was confident it was frozen solid enough for us to walk on, although I doubt I'd ever drive a vehicle I owned on a lake in Southern Ontario. Near the edges of the island it was slushy and wet, even with our cold temperatures.

Baby it's COLD outside!
