Warning: Dogs at play!

During the Christmas break, we looked after Jessie, one of Ruby’s puppies from 2014.

Dogs in long grass.jpg

She and Simmie spent a long time

Chasing each other through frozen, silver grasses.

After a cold and invigorating swim,

The play continued.

(Can you see the water drops flying through the air?)

Wet dogs playing.jpg

To an outsider, it might have looked

As if they were fighting —

But really it was more like love and frolicking

Between two really good friends.
