Smelling the Roses
Flying down the trail, snow is shooting off your skis, the wind is in your hair, the dogs are pulling like a well oiled machine.... until they spot, or more accurately sniff, a pee tree.
One, or both dogs come to a screeching halt, you start to slow down, frustrated, as your dogs lean in towards the yellow snow and get a nice big whiff of it.
Why do dogs smell pee? Because that is what dogs do. The smell of pee to them, is much like you spending time on Facebook. They find out what's going on with their friends and who has been around lately, and how they are feeling.
Facebook and pee sniffing will both get in the way of your skijoring.

Hills, will kill ya!
You will be thanking me later when you are coming back after a long run, winded, and parked your truck on a hill. When the dogs see the hill, and get their second wind, your tired butt will be dragged right up after them.
