Sunset dog

A couple of weeks ago

A magical mist swept over the frozen lake

Just as the sun was setting.

And everything, including Oscar,

Was enveloped in a beautiful scarf of colours.

  3. Isn’t he gorgeous? The beautiful light just seems to enhance Oscar (and his Kong toy, which reminds me, Lindy’s Kong is outside and I must bring it in).
    I always love to see photos of Oscar.
