Spot the …

Ruby loves to play hide-and-seek

Among the trees –

While Simmie says

Peekaboo with snow.

What about this photo –

Can you spot the dog?

What about now? Only teasing –

I think this is a fox we spotted in the field.

It was lying down in the snow and got up with difficulty.

It was much bigger than Simmie so, at first, I thought it was a wolf.

We looked at each other for a long time – each of us not so different from the other.

Then we went our separate ways.

  21. That would be a big fox! I hope it wasn’t hurt, maybe it was a pregnant vixen in labor. (!) Good thing the dogs didn’t give chase!

    • It was moving slowly, but not hurt. Could have been a pregnant vixen. The dogs didn’t chase it and I put them on the lead when I saw the fox.

  39. Mysterious animals…and your beautiful dogs…make for a great blog post, Fi. The snow is pretty much gone here…for now. In Alberta, it is possible to have snow right through Spring and out the other side.
    Hugs to you, your family, and of course the dogs.
