It’s been quiet here on the blog lately as we’ve been busy with different home improvement projects and have gone straight from work to bed (after taking the dogs for walks on slippery icy roads…) but today we took a break from the paint pots and visited the Christmas market and fair at Nordanå in Skellefteå. Nice to see some people and soak up the holiday spirit 🙂
We spent a lot of time by the warming fire.
The Christmas market is a great place to bring dogs for socialisation as there are crowds to walk through, lots of dogs and people to say hello to and plenty of new sounds and smells to explore.
We had Wilder with us but he has already been out and about a lot in his first year and is no longer that excited about the “meet and greet” routine, he’s more like “OK, I said hello to that old dog, come on, give me a treat now!”.
I did some shopping for Christmas decorations and bought a pair of warm mittens (I had left mine at home). Next year we’re planning to have our own stand at the fair and sell some home made products. I won’t reveal exactly what just yet, but they are “Malamute related” 😉
Our friends at Rascal Huskies had brought their friendly Siberian Huskies to greet visitors at the fair. They also sold copies of their book “Hundspannsliv“, which tells the story of their daily life with sled dogs and introduces the reader to the different personalities of their dogs. Sounds like a fun read!
The fair had something for everyone…30 years ago, that would have been me feeding the horse.
One of the pretty decorations that we brought home. Smells just like Christmas!
