|Keith's (Norwester) Boomer Dog That Makes it Possible|
For him to Run in the Tough Canadian Weather
Right now, a lot of guys that compete in ARHA are running a bunch as they prepare for the ARHA Little Pack World Hunt on April 3 - 6. Once it is over, they will resume other obligations and hobbies. Once spring hits, a lot of guys get out the boat and start fishing, or coach their kid in baseball. And that is as it should be.
Running for me though, never stops. You might call it an addiction and I couldn't really argue. I run all year long, year after year. Occasionally something will make me think about this. Norwester wrote this on a recent post on the Hunted Hare about confirmation,:
When I wrote that the conditions and environment have you backed into a corner....I'm not exaggerating. There were a number of years I had big strong looking handsome hounds...that couldn't circle a hare in winter...not once.I was telling Bud, and I've told Tom this too, one year I went 6 weeks....NEVER SAW A HARE...and I was running every day.
Now that is what I call dedication. At least I get to see a rabbit or two every day.
Today I ran with the Old Man. I ran Gypsy, Chip, Butcher, Kurly, and Ob. The Old Man ran Tony, Village Girl, and Jed. It was sunny and 45°.
