Snow Day


Where’d the lake go?

The snow finally hit Vermont, but with his freshly minted Canadian jacket, Eko was ready.   We zipped up and headed over to the Colchester Causeway trail to explore.

Eko practiced his ambush hunting technique


But alas he could find no reindeer to try it out on

The walk out to the causeway was nice, but as soon as we stepped out into the lake we were beaten up by driving snow and huge gusts of wind.

We managed to get one photo in the middle of the causeway before we bailed

It would have been great to walk the entire causeway, but since it felt like Satan himself was attacking us, we decided to make tracks.

Not surprisingly, our tracks were the only ones on the trail that day

After enduring the cold, the team universally agreed that our next stop should be indoors.  The Magic Hat Brewery is just a few miles from downtown Burlington and that seemed as good a place as any to warm up.  Magic Hat welcomes dogs with open arms, but unfortunately Mr. Eko isn’t 21 yet so he wasn’t able to sample any of their wares.  Eko did however enjoy getting to take his first tour of a brewery.


Not a bad way to warm up

Before heading back to our hotel I tried to convince a manager at Ben & Jerry’s to let me take a photo of Eko behind the counter, but she was unconvinced by my argument that she should let us do it because it “would be awesome!”  Oh, well.  You can’t win them all.  It was time to pack up and get ready for our next stop – Boston – it’s gonna be wicked sweet.  Eko and I are Yankee’s fans, but we’ll try to not hold that against the pet-friendly places we find in Bean town.   We have already got a number of great recommendations from readers, but if you have any suggestions for what we should do in Boston, be sure to leave us a comment here or send as a tweet @WillandEko

Sleeping Beauty

Anybody else notice that I do all the packing and Eko does all the sleeping?

    • Eko loved playing in the snow, but we are loving this unseasonably warm weather in Boston even more. I have a feeling though that more snow awaits…

    • James, we picked up his jacket at a store called Too Zoo in Montreal. If you don’t happen to be a French Canadian, the brand is Chilly Dogs. We like it because instead of having to navigate Eko’s big paws through two arm holes, this jacket just clips right on and will never chafe. Definitely very happy with the purchase.

      Tim, couldn’t agree more. Eko and I can pull off a lot of things, but a plaid jacket is not one of those things. The black looks great.

  1. While in Boston, you should go visit my old home town of Salem. It’s not far from Boston and there is a lot to see and do there.
    And by the way, you’re both adorable.
