Lake Tahoe (Pet Edition)

Sadly, I missed getting any shots of two Chihuahuas but trust me, there were seven dogs... if chihuahuas count as whole dogs!   =)

The Lake Tahoe water temperature stays at a constant 39 degrees, and as you can see Qori had no problem swimming for pine cones!  He also loved playing in the snow, but has sensitive paw pads since he's a "city dog", and I had to cut the fun short when I spied red blotches of snow.

He's OK now, but this is not the first time.  I've learned my lesson, and he will be sporting fashionable boots at our next great outdoor adventure.  No matter how much he protests.

 



In addition to giving Qori extra hugs and treats for his paws, I also piled on the affection because I was very proud of him.  He didn't open his can of Crazy-Qori Whoopass on the other dogs.  Mind you, I still had him behind a gate during meal times, but the rest of the time he was free to consort with the 6 other dogs, and there wasn't any drama!  I gave him lots of kisses for letting me keep the muzzle in the luggage bag the whole time...

I think he finally accepted that these other dogs are part of the pack family.

Looks like Qori is having the time of his life from the photos. I'm sending a virtual pat on the haed his way for behaving himself too. :)
