Winter is here..time to break out the gloves, toques and scarves..

The temperature last night was down to –6 celcius….not exactly a warm spring day!

Carlie and I ventured out this morning for a walk on the dyke..(yes the same one that Doug and I went to about two weeks ago) But today the scenery was different..

Tucker had a great time, chasing his ball and running back and forth..

..of course Tucker went for a swim?IMG_0417

He doesn’t care if the water has a skiff of ice on it..

There was a heron sitting at the water’s edge..he looked like he needed a sweater?
