It is another crisp beautiful Kugaaruk day. The sun is blaring over the hills at such an intensity you would almost think it was "warm" outside. Alas, it is not. It is still quite cold here; although when you are sitting inside your nice warm house you sort of loose yourself in your imagination, that the sun is truly warm and the air is hot and dry. Then you walk over to the window and see the snow and the ice haze in the distant... It is only then you realize your imagination is definitely working overtime.
I'm counting down the days until our first IPA (12 more) we officially have the first leg of our vacation figured out. I just wish we would get the second half just as organized although that is pretty much out of our hands at the moment and you all know how much I hate when I can't organize things! I didn't realize how close our IPA was officially until Corey got back from his last night.
Chakotay and Sekaya are officially flying with us to Seneka in Winnipeg. Although, we did find them a kennel in Yellowknife but with March break on at the end of the month; they are booked solid and have been solid since last March break. So come August, and every other trip we take (as long as they can be booked in) we will be taking them to Great Slave Lake Animal Hospital - they have a kennel/boarding fascility behind the actual vet clinic that allows for indoor/outdoor kennels. I was impressed by the receptionist and she basically explained everything about the kennels including how and when they open the doors for feedings and the amount of time the dogs are allowed outdoors in the winter. Very impressed I was.
However, like you all know our dogs are our fur-kids; we would do anything necessary to make sure they are well taken care of. We will actually breath a bit easier knowing they are somewhere that treats them extrememly well this vacation, and Seneca provides them with everything they need and more (8pm cookie time..haha)
A sad story I heard today, an (off-duty) Mountie and his two young children have passed away in Oromocto due to a vehicle accident. I definitely feel for his family both immediate and his RCMP family. May they all rest in peace.
At least he got to walk his children into heaven - how many parents get to do that.
