Eva’s Project – November & December 2017.

Hard to believe that 2017 is now over, and the weather that we had to end the year was chilly to say the understated least.

This November photo was a tribute shot, based on a lovely photo by Stefanie Timmermann.  This photo turned out quite different than what I intended, but I still like the result highlighting her eyes and ears.  Eva does have some pretty long ears for the size of her head. The ear hair adds a couple of inches as well.

This next photo was of her on Christmas morning, with some wrapping paper in the background.  She is really wanting some of the treats that Santa brought for her, Bruno and Agnes.

Eva: Hey Dave, Merry Christmas.
Dave: Merry Christmas to you too Eva.
Eva: Remember those sweet potato biscuits that Santa brought me?
Dave: I believe he brought those for all of the puppies in the house.
Eva: Nope. Not quite. I get first dibs on anything that Santa brings. It’s part of the Christmas code.
Dave: The Christmas code? Is this the code where the one with the craziest ear hairs gets to have whatever they want?
Eva: Dude, that’s not the code. It is right in the name of the holiday.
Dave: I’m not following you.
Eva: It’s the day that Santa flies. Christmas Eve, which code for Christmas Eva, which is code for me getting dibs on the cookies. So, can you break them out and lets get this Christmas Eva party started!

The week between Christmas and New Years was very cold with Saskatchewan and much of the rest of the country in a deep freeze.  At -30c without the windchill it could officially be called “paw lifting cold” in our household. Some boots might help, but we have never had success keeping those on feet during walks. And with 12 paws to cover I believe we would usually come home with only 10 or 11 at best. The dogs had not had a good walk in a week because of the severe cold.

This shot was taken on the hill behind our house with her big jacket on. Within 2 minutes the paws were being lifted one at a time in a clockwise sequence.
