Doobie made his first overnight visit to our cabin in Red Feathers this past weekend.
Lots of new things seen, heard and smelled these past few days. His senses were overloaded I think.
He’s not a water dog, which isn’t surprising. His personality is very much like that of our old dog Buddy. His favorite activity, running like a bat out of hell and leaping over, onto and between things.
There are no shortages of places for that in Red Feathers.
We made the run from Littleton to Red Feather Lakes to check on the cabin and we decided to give the Doob his first extended outing to see how he would handle a long drive. It’s a 2.5 hour drive one way, so 5+ hours in the back seat of a Ford pickup truck should put him to the test.
The Doob did well. No car sickness, no barking, no problems. He seemed to enjoy the ride, though he was a little nervous at first. He’s never been anywhere but the neighborhood and Vets office before.
As you can see, there is still plenty of Winter left in Spring in Northern Colorado.

How does one come up with a viable blog post each day?
I’ll begin with familiar things. Not necessarily familiar to you, but a present fixture in my life. If you’ve followed my blogging on Facebook, you’ll know about our new family pet, Doobie.
For the uninitiated, Doobie is an 8 month old Besenji mix rescue dog. We got him in November to fill the holes in our hearts from the loss of our previous two dogs earlier in the year.
Like all pet owners on the internet, I too will subject you to photographs of my current best pal, Doobie. He’s quite a character (aren’t they all?) and we are in the process of training him to bring us firewood. I’d say we are about 65% there.
Ahhh, back to Winter here in the Denver area. We got about 6 inches of nice white dry powder snow here in the foothills. I wish we’d had some of this in December and January, but now is better than never. The snow is badly needed, here and in the mountains. This is our water.
Doobie has been enjoying his life of romping in the snow. At 6 months old, this is a first time experience for his little mind and he is soaking it in.
