Booties?! – I like ’em

cottage lifeFin enjoying the  cottage life

Now that we have had our first real cold bout of winter, Fin has become quite accustomed to wearing his winter duds. The winter morning walks up the creek are thoroughly enjoyed by all, other than the nasty snow balls that kept forming in Fin’s feet. So Steve, always being ever so thoughtful and caring, ordered Fin some booties as an early christmas present. On they went and to my surprise there was no adjustment period at all, now the walks are even better.

This morning was particularly glorious. The low winter light was gentle and pink, as though we were  walking within an infusion of rose.  We gave thanks.

The booties were not Fin’s only early christmas present……

This gift, Steve found on the road not far from our place when going to check the mail.

mmm - I like it  copymmmm – I like it

All is going well, Fin is running as fast as he ever has as he charges for William’s (our squash colored lab) neck and attempts to keep the horses in order. We are in love with living.

I made him new pair of booties last night, purple this time. My mother was generous enough to donate her much worn purple, polar fleece MEC pants. I doubled the polar fleece in the toes in my version of the boots as it is the toes that have holes through them already in the original version.

  1. Great to hear from you, thanks for the update! Glad to hear Fin is doing well. Would have loved to see him taking down that deer! 😉

  2. Is that an elk? I couldn’t see the head in the photo. If it is a whitetail, it is huge! What ever species, Fin will be eating good this winter. Congratulations. Your home looks very Christmas cozy.
