P.S. #1 – Qannik is Inuit for Snowflake, thus the title. As our buddy Bricey well knows, Qannik came to us from the Haywood Animal Shelter with the name Snowflake. We decided to keep the name, but change the language.
P.S. # 2 – Yes, it has been very hot here. But we have to explain. At the house, we have not yet crossed the 80F (26 C) level – that only happens a few days each year. BUT, when we travel, we have to cross valleys and into towns, and the temperatures can be in the 80′s and – rarely – even 90. Sometimes, the rapid change in temperatures can be as tough on the dogs (and humans) as the high temperatures themselves, so we constantly monitor them and make sure they have plenty of fresh water.
