Baby Braves the Cold

Posted on: February 9, 2010

Last Sunday, Borys, Niko, Frasier and I (me and my boys 🙂 ) braved the February elements and headed out to one of the few off leash dog trails in Ottawa: all in all it is a great place to get some fresh air and walk the dog within the city limits. Even though just a few days ago I said that the temperatures had been milder, I guess the overall mid. February weather is a bit unpredictable. I mean the day was sunny enough, but once we got there we realized it may be a bit too cold for our little man. The city grooms the pathways at the park, and at first we thought it would be a good idea to trek baby N along in his stroller: so we strapped him in and started rolling, only to discover that despite the plowing this was not going to work out – his head was bobbing around like a buoy on the rough seas, hence plan two was put into action.  We bundled him up and strapped the Baby Bjorn onto Daddy.

Usually it takes us a good 45 minutes walk the trails, and depending on what paths you take it could even take longer.  However, in the middle of February with a baby whose nose was getting progressively more red, we were forced to cut our walk short and only stayed for about 15 minutes! Oh well, at least Frasier got to say hello to a few of his puppy friends.
