Foster + Freezing Rain = hilarity

There is one thing you don't usually have to worry about back home. Generally once the temperature drops below freezing, it stays there for the next 6 months or so. Not so in Ottawa. Here the temperature regularly drops into the negatives and then a day later is in the low teens. While this makes your daily choice of coat a little more of a hassle, it also make freezing rain a pretty regular occurrence.

Normally this isn't much of a big deal, as I do most of my walking indoors (well when I used to live just a few minutes from work it did make the walk, mostly downhill, a little more interesting) . Now, however, I have to take Foster out every day, rain or shine, ice or not and as he has not yet figured out that the trees in the front of my Condo are just as good for peeing on as the trees in the park, it always means doing a lap or two around the neighboring softball and soccer fields. But I guess it's all worth it just to see him when he tries to run, only to do a perfect impersonation of a drunken sailor. And then the look on his face when he turns around to see what just happened, priceless!
