Winter in Birken

Believe it or not, this is first time Winter has come to Birken. I am, of course, referring to Birken, the Amazing Wonder-Pup! When an opportunity arose that allowed up to load her into the truck and head off on a coast mountain journey in search of snow over a glorious (Canadian) Thanksgiving weekend, we absolutely couldn’t say no. Once we started letting her pick the music, (she likes folky-country jams on a roadtrip,) we raced past Pemberton and kept going until we hit snow. With jagged white peaks lining the sky and a canvas of golden leaves all around, the truck climbed higher and before long the tires were biting into snow after months of nothing but hot asphalt and dusty gravel. Finally, the S in the M+S tires is back in play.

Once out of the truck, the patient pooch was ready to stretch her legs. Finally, Winter was in winter and the super-cutie-zoomies were in full effect. Observe:

Cheers, and keep on being Thankful for what you’ve got!
