They wear orange. On our trails. Found one huddling behind a rock. Barked. Mom called, I came. Came outside the house. Saw car and two people across the street. Scouting with binoculars. Don't like people or cars close to the house. Ran across the street. Jumped on one hunter. The other said "you can eat him". Turned his back. Ignored me. Not fun. Mom came to get me. Not as fun as it use to be.

Don't like front toenails clipped. Back ones ok. Clippers too stressful. M holds front paws off the ground. I balance on back feet. Each clip is a nighmare. Hold tight, clip then yelp. Tension and stress is too high. Now mom uses a noisy machine. I bonk it with my nose when it goes on - treat. All back toenails done - treat. Front toesnails done one at a time. Paw, treat, dremmel. Paw, treat, dremmel. Repeat each toenail. Certain toenails don't feel right. At least it's better than clipping method. Mom can do it on her own. I get lots of treats!

First snow! Love the snow. Cold. Refreshing. Very exciting. I have to get use to the snowshoes again. They have a wider girth than mom's feet and I keep stepping on them. Mom looks like she's going to fall. I had to help her up because she was stuck on her butt. Don't really like her pressing on by back, but at least she got up and we could go again. Lick the snow. Chomp the snow. Run in the snow. Bounce in the snow. Pant. On the belly in the snow. Tired.
