After two days and nights of a lot of rain, you'll see some standing water behind Stella as we started our walk this morning. As we moved to the back of the field the 'pond' increased in size. None of that bothered Sadie of course ... to her, it's the field and it's time to track scent.

From tracking new scent every morning and afternoon ... to getting her sprints and running in ... Sadie loves this field. If she had her way, there would be 4-5 walks per day instead of the normal 2-3.

Sadie and Stella react in different ways while I put on my jacket and gloves to stay warm during the walks. Stella nudges my hand with her nose, Sadie whines and bounces on her rear legs non-stop in excitement. They also differ in what kinds of walks they take ... these photos are from this morning.

With Sadie whining ... Stella nudging me with her nose ... I could tell I was going to head out for our morning walk before I wanted to. I wanted to wait an hour or two for the temperature to increase from 16° and a wind chill of 0° ... but the hounds always get their way. We were off.

The weather was so nice yesterday that we ended up taking a total of 3 walks, the last one with Stella on the retractable leash. It might just me but with warmer weather I am seeing more of these deer hoof prints than I normally do. That may be the reason for Sadie's obsession of wanting to go outside all of the time recently.
All of the hounds were surprised to have their breakfast kibble served earlier than normal. Their first trip outside before the meal and after waking up was in the dark. Yet, they did not hesitate to chow down once they came back inside. A short nap, and an early walk just after 8am. Same routine as this week ... Sadie tracked scent, Stella stayed behind in her own world.
