So, what did you do for Whisper, Longblades? This is all new to me, how do you get the snowballs off?
I think it's wonderful that Chum is looked after so well. I have boots for the opposite, such hot ground in Summer that I've watched one sheltie lifting one foot at a time to cool it, like a certain type of lizard does in the desert.
We also keep a gazebo up so they have some shade, or shelter if it rains. But snow and ice is a mystery to me, I'm constantly learning new stuff off all of you.
