Over our Christmas break we chose to fill our holiday with all the ‘snows we could manage. After a wintery-white stint in Whistler, we packed up our roomy (ha… ha… ha…) Mazda 3 and headed out to Kelowna. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather for our drive up and time just flew by (because of the weather… and because of the eye mask I bought which kept that weather out WONDERFULLY). Pit stops are a must when you have a pea-sized bladder and two dogs that both start to migrate into the driver’s lap when they just can’t even anymore. We enjoyed some stunning sights along the way.
How to make the most out of your pit stop: ensure that your hounds are OBSESSED and slightly crazed when it comes to snow. ENSURE that if you as much as walk – they attack the moving ground around your feet with intensity and vigour. ENSURE that if you flick snow with your toes – that they send themselves shooting an average of 4/5 feet into the air to ‘attack’ the snows. This makes our snowy stops incredibly efficient. Snow + deranged dogs + toe flicks = peaceful car rides. Yay!
