New Duds

Max got some new duds (a new harness) to break in on the trails today.
The new clothes were a success...
"Don't I look handsome in my new blue harness?" asks happy & handsome Max.
"He goes fast in these clothes, I approve!" states cute little Zorro.

Max's harness from years past was a nice purple; but that harness finally wore out. So, Max has been wearing his "hunting season orange" harness the last month or so while his new blue harness was on order. The new blue arrived yesterday afternoon, so it was new duds on the trails for Max today. Let's see how the new uniform performed...

It was fast on ungroomed terrain - success!
Out-stretched Max putting the new harness to good use as he and Zorro tow me along a
forest service road.

It held up during trail breaking - success!
"Harness works in deep snow!" states happy Max.
"Surveying for wildlife!" says intense Zorro.
Neither Max nor I saw what intense little Zorro was locked on...

It worked in a sprint tuck - success!
"Putting the new harness to test in a synchronized sprint tuck with my brother!" say both.

It worked in an airborne sprint - success!
"Zoom, new harness works!" demonstrate the out-stretching & sprinting pair.

And, finally, it worked for snow angels!!!! Success!!!
"The new harness is a keeper!" states snow angel rolling Max.
"What a goof!" smirks Zorro.

A successful test run of Max's new duds: 7.8 miles with 1050 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 25 MPH.

2014/2015 Season to Date: 67 days on the trails covering 570.6 miles with 61,850 feet of elevation climbed.
