One of the dogs and I decided to go for a long off-leash hike today. It's about 15C today in Nova Scotia, Canada, and she probably got quite a shock when the river didn't match the temperature in the air! Except...nope, she went right back in.



I tried to get her to sit for a nice portrait, but she wouldn't suck her teeth in.




Anyone else enjoying unseasonably warm strolls with their pets?

Yup. It is almost 60* here in New Jersey. We took the dogs over to the reservation yesterday and the one also jumped in the stream. She did not seem to mind it and was dry by the time we got back to the car.

It's around fifteen degrees F. here, the dog would need an ice auger to go swimming. So how warm is that converted to F. around fifty or so?

Mine has her winter weight on. Hopefully the warm weather holds up so she can regain her bikini body.

That's 59F. Maybe your dog likes ice fishing. You never know.

Ah yes, the dogs enjoy the beach on our regular trips to Cape May.

I could dig up some pics from mine swimming in a half frozen lake, eating her way through the ice just to get to the birds in the middle of the lake. We believe she has a major obsession with water though.
She loves the mountains here during winter, cold or meters of snow has never hold her back.

beach weather here in Ventura, California. it's been hovering around mid-80's, which is unseasonably warm for us. can't fight it, though! gotta take advantage.

It always makes me jealous that people farther north have warmer winters with less snow than we do. We have a hell in Michigan and it freezes over every year.

This was the one i was referring to, i thought i had one were you could still see the ducks when she was swimming towards them. You can see part of the lake in the back that is still frozen.


and another one during a hike.

I once saw a book at the library that showed you how to do exactly that.
