The Cone Of Keeper

Keeper had surgury to remove a lump in her chin . . . . biopsy results were benign as were biopsy results from a persistent rash on her private parts.

Keeper has significant allergy problems.

However, post-surgury she's a conehead again, at least for a few more days. Combine that with the cold around here and the adventures have been toned down a bit:

Below, Keeper yesterday morning at daybreak.

Abby sniffs the early morning air:

Below, Abby holds her back foot out of the snow . . . . well into the minus 20's until things warmed up considerably yesterday afternoon:

Below, a reprieve from the cone, Keeper crosses a stream in the forest, weeping in a iron-looking mix that continually adds new layers of ice.

Below, the race from the gate. After a drive, I open the rear of the Durango and . . . . they shoot out and the race to the house is on. It's 24 below in this picture.

Below, on the way to the forest, a herd of elk move across a field . . . a common sight just southwest of Calgary, the cloud-clad Rockies partly hidden in the background.

Below, Saturday afternoon, too cold to walk but not so cold we couldn't scoot around the country looking for pictures to relieve the cabin fever. I waded through thigh-deep snow in a drift-laden ditch to peek the camera over a fence for this quintessential winter-on-the-prairie shot:

The race to the house shot is great :thumbs up

Love the B&W ones too - awesome

Glad the lumps were benign & that Keeper is in good enough spirits with the Dreaded Elizabethan Collar on to still enjoy a game of fetch :highfive:

Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos with us :D
