Tag Archives: mini Aussie shepherd in snow

Enjoying winter

After living without a dog for six years, Meg and I recognized it was time to invest love and time in a dog again.  So in late August, we bought a mini Aussie shepherd.  Leif is a delightful creature, full of love, energy, and intelligence.  Winter hiking and snowshoeing with him in the Mt Emily Recreation Area and the Meacham Divide have been filled with his joyful exuberance for snow travel! And many of these times Meg and I enjoyed the added pleasure of having son Michael and his dogs with us.

If the snow is the right temperature and consistency, Leif acquires snow balls on his fur.
