Does anybodies know what time of year it is?
No... although the stores are playing Christmasy tunes, it's not Santy Claws time.
No.... Thanksgiving is a bit away and besides, we already had that here in Canada in October.
No... it's not my birthday... yet... but if you want to send me gifts, and cake, and waffles, and cupcakes, and shrimp pasta... I'm fine with that. (my real birthday is January 3rd... in case you need to order anything).
It's CAMP OUT TIME!!!!
Yes, camp out time, it's the time where the Musher takes the Pretty Curly Tails on a nice long run, then stops at the campsite and lets them get use to stopping and hanging out for a while, just like they would do on the Iditarod trail. Then after a nice lunch and a nap, they all go out for more running, just like they would do on the Iditarod trail.
The purpose of this exercise is to cause me frostbite... I mean, to help the Pretty Curly Tails learn how to relax and rest when there's time to relax and rest.
So, while the Musher runs the Pretty Curly Tails we all get busy and pack the truck up and meet the team at the usual spot.
I ran out on the trail to meet the team as they were coming in. As their coach, I had to make sure they were running correctly.
|Here they come!!!! Warm up the hotdogs!!!!|
|Um... hey, you two... REST! You're suppose to be RESTING!|
This was Freya's first camping trip, so I felt compelled to comfort her. I didn't want her to be scared out here in the middle of nowhere or anything.
|Yes, yes, I'll protect you as long as you put my cold feet in your pocket|
|Three? There's only three... AGAIN, just like last year. Seriously?|
|You're using me as a plate, aren't you? I can feel the warmth of the hot dog!|
|Ok, seriously? There's a perfectly good heater in the truck... someone carry me there!|
|FINE! I'll go pose at the lake.|
|How's this? What? You can't see my face... sigh|
|How's this? What? FINE....|
|There... is that better? OHFORTHELOVEOF... what sunset? You can't even see the sun!|
|Um, hello? My butt is frozen to the concrete, can someone bring the windshield scraper?|
|Just throw everything in the back and get in, I'm leaving in 10 minutes with or without you both!|
