Sweet memories of
The dogs days of summer:
Enjoying sultry evenings
Of purple magnificence
With my best furry friend.
For more great shots, please visit: Skywatch.
I may or may not have taken over 100 photos of Ruby’s pups a couple of weeks ago –
So I hope you don’t mind if I share some more!
Who can resist
A small, furry puppy face –
Or a handful
Of puppy love?
One of the puppies
Attached herself to my son’s finger.
Our visit tired out
The adorable puppies
And we left them sweetly snoozing.

I’m away in Gothenburg this week so won’t be around to visit you,
But I want to leave you with some sweet pictures of Ruby and her three-week-old puppies.
Ruby was very happy to see us – and we we were overjoyed to see her.
Her pups were constantly calling for attention –
Who could resist that sweet tail?
They were very affectionate
And not afraid of us at all.
In fact, they seemed to find some of us
Very tasty indeed!
(More puppy pictures coming up next week.)
I’ll be back on Thursday with a new post.
For more sweet tails, please visit: Our World Tuesday.
I don’t seem to be able to get enough
Of our late evening honey glow!
It pours like warm syrup
Over water and jetty.
It bathes Oscar
As he enjoys the view;
And dances on golden feet
Over the lovely clover.
(I lay down in a patch of nettles to take this photo!)
For more honey, please visit: Skywatch.
All you need to see
Is the fiery golden glow of a sunset
To realize how magnificent life really is.
For more golden moments, please visit: Skywatch.
Synchronized diving …
Oscar and Ruby show how it’s done!
Little note: I won’t be able to reply to your comments, but I do cherish each and every one of them!
For more golden moments, please visit: Saturday’s Critters.
There is nothing as magnificent
As those big lavender and gold skies –
And the total joy
Of two dogs running through the purple:
Living as if someone left the gate open.
For more royal skies, please visit: Skywatch.
Out with the old and in with the new?
Yes, out with old worries, grudges and bad habits
As long as you’re not replacing them with new ones.
As for us, we have something new for the New Year –
Meet Ruby, Oscar’s great-granddaughter.
We’re fostering her for a few months before she’s due to go off to the breeders again for another litter of puppies.
As for the old –
Well, Oscar makes life golden with his sweet, white face
And humour and grace.
He doesn’t really have white hair – these are his wisdom highlights!
Wishing you all a new year filled with light, strength, beauty, good health and laughter.
For more good wishes, please visit: Our World Tuesday.
Please indulge me as I carry on with Oscar’s birthday tribute:
He turned 11 at the weekend, which is a good age for a dog his size.
Whatever he does, he does wholeheartedly –
Seizing the moment
And filling it with joy.
A lesson we could all learn from.
For more wet dogs and other tails, please visit: Our World Tuesday.
To celebrate Oscar’s 11th birthday,
I’m showing some classic summer sunsets over our lake
Decorated, of course, with an extra big helping
For more doggone skies, please go to: Skywatch.
