Irresistible

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.

Puppy tales

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.

Ruby and pups

Her pups were constantly calling for attention –

Who could resist that sweet tail?

They were very affectionate

And not afraid of us at all.

Pup in arms

In fact, they seemed to find some of us

Very tasty indeed!

(More puppy pictures coming up next week.)

Beard and pup

I’ll be back on Thursday with a new post.

Honey glow

I don’t seem to be able to get enough

Of our late evening honey glow!

Golden light

It pours like warm syrup

Over water and jetty.

Bonding

It bathes Oscar

As he enjoys the view;

Oscar

And dances on golden feet

Over the lovely clover.

(I lay down in a patch of nettles to take this photo!)

Golden glow

Sometimes

All you need to see

Is the fiery golden glow of a sunset

To realize how magnificent life really is.

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!

Lavender skies

There is nothing as magnificent

As those big lavender and gold skies –

Big purple and gold sky copy

And the total joy

Of two dogs running through the purple:

Living as if someone left the gate open.

In with the old and the new

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.

Oscar

Making a splash

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.

To celebrate Oscar’s 11th birthday,

I’m showing some classic summer sunsets over our lake

Decorated, of course, with an extra big helping

Of dog.

Frosted dog

The cooler weather has given Oscar a new lease of life.

He’s always ready to play a game of ball…

Play with me copy

Look at those ears flapping in the autumn sunshine –

“We have lift off!” they seem to be saying.

Frosty dog copy

Another fun game is hiding in the leaves

And hoping I won’t be able to find him.

(We’ll be out in the autumn sun, so please excuse me if I don’t get around to visiting you all this weekend.)
