Tough enough to wear pink

This has certainly been an odd winter, weather wise. It's February, and there still isn't too much snow on the ground to work dogs. Weird.  However, we've also had a fair amount of rain and freezing rain (crazy) which has left our property looking and sounding like a huge dish of creme brulee. 
So while the weather is gorgeous, the ground is hard on the dogs feet.  Especially Ben's. 

"Can't help myself. Must go out and abuse feet..."

He's a keener, and never complains - but it's been pretty obvious that his feet are a mess. 

So, I've been using Mountain Ridge's "Web Med", which my neighbour the Musher put me onto a few years ago. 

The stuff work's great, but boy is it PINK! Ben's got the hairiest toes too, so it's a lot of PINK.

"Whatever, let's go move some sheep, and then go for a run, and then do chores, and then and then and then"

"Hey, you with the camera. Quit staring at my feet - the gate's over here."

Oh GEEZ, did you hear me bust out laughing all the way from GA. Poor fella..looks like he was late for work and forgot to take off his houseshoes! Fluffy slipper no less. Well a good boy wants to get the job done...but funny nonetheless.
