Over the years I've heard a lot about the global warming phenomenon. Having spent a good amount of my time outdoors, in all seasons (no pun intended), I've pretty much discounted the theories of how the earth is warming up. One day in a duck blind in January will have anyone who is adamant the global temps are rising second guessing themselves real quick. This year I've begun to think a bit differently, as here in Massachusetts we've been having an extremely warm winter. This warm winter, is of course, great for things like dog training. Not so good for things like tracking deer. The snow has arrived, and the temps have dropped, so it seems the party is over. The dog training continues, none the less, as the depth of the snow fall has even necessitated the use of my snow blower, yet. Here are a few dog training pics from a recent pre-snow session. Enjoy.
