Starting off our February right, still on vacation! Agis and I went hiking today. While he still looks very Rottie he's starting to get more a GSD body. I despair of his ears though ;)

@islanddog we're staying in a cabin on the west side of the park. Oxtongue Lake, just east of Dwight and Hwy 35. I like winter camping but for 16 days it's nice to have some creature comforts, and Toby is more of a 3-season camper. Not to mention Xerxes needs a jacket when it's 10C so would die winter camping hahaha (poor guy!). I'm hoping Agis becomes my winter camping buddy.

@Petra's Dad I would say not as much as normal - it's been unseasonably warm up here, we come here every winter and it's one of the warmer winters I can remember. Still more snow then home, which is all mud sadly.

He's a handsome boy. Heat wave here, my dog's never seen snow, sure looks like a lot of fun!
Thanks! Yeah probably not so much snow for you guys (especially in summer!). It's unseasonably warm here too unfortunately.

Really? In Algonquin and didn't even say hi? Haha. I could throw a rock to there from here. Spent most of the summer in the buffer on the west side.
Looks like a fun time.

I didn't know that! Well, we're in Oxtongue Lake until February 8...

We are having a great time. I've got bronchitis, but still trying to be active!

@WIBackpacker it's lovely eh! I love Lake Superior too though, that's my favourite part of Ontario, but we spend the most time in Algonquin.

We hiked Track and Tower today, went up to the lookout - 8.45k, 255m elevation gain which is really the upper limit for Agis given his age so I will likely rest him tomorrow and ski by myself. Boo! But he did great.

I call this series 'herding dogs for a family picture CAN be like herding cats'. Note Xerxes, our beagle, baying by the ice fall. Agis was a good boy of course.
