Warning: Dogs at play!

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

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?)

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.

It’s brrr-eautiful!

No matter how  you look at it —

With

Brrr with dog.jpg

Or without a dog:

Winter is beautiful.

(I’m filming away from home this week, so may not be able to reply to your comments.)

Christmas swimming

It was a cold Christmas morning

And the reeds caught fire in the rising sun.

As the sky spread its golden glow,

Simmie broke through the ice for a refreshing swim.

Puppy love – again!

Ruby gave birth to five healthy puppies last week!

It’s too soon for us to visit, so I’ve gone back in my archives

To find photos of her last litter of pups – from July last year.

I hope you don’t mind.

After all, who can resist those sweet furry faces

Or big soulful eyes?

And – what’s even better – is that puppies

Grow up to be beautiful dogs – like Ruby.

Glowing sunset

The golden light of October

Is as sweet as honey.

LIfe is hectic around here again

Photobombing

Simson loves

To photobomb my shots.

Simsons at sunset

And you know what?

I think the results

Are just perfect.

Frolic

It’s amazing how much a sky – and a beach –

Can change in the space of a day or two:

From cloudy drama

Footprints

To the joyfulness

Of dogs frolicking

In a glorious sunset.

Frolic

Doing the salsa

Winter is at its best during early spring.

Bright snow

After days of warmth,

A fresh snowfall looks so pretty.

Dogs in snow

The hazel flowers covered in ice

Captured my imagination.

Icy hazel

Spring is about taking two steps back

And one step forward —

So we may as well enjoy the spring salsa.

Glitter

Just like Ruby

And Simson (that’s him goofing around in the background) do.

Rock ‘n Roll Queen

Ruby’s previous owner trained her to jump up

On very tall rocks for treats. She seems to enjoy it.

On stone

Last week, the mornings were cold (minus temperatures)

But Ruby decided to break through the ice for a swim anyway.

She then scaled a tall rock

And decided to share a spring shower with me.

Once out of the water,

She started to steam in the cold air.

No matter how hard he tried,

Simson just wasn’t agile enough to jump onto the top of that tall tall rock!

Simson

In the meantime, Ruby remained at the top,

Enjoying the sunshine in majestic solitude.

Sunny

Blue beauty

Early morning copy

Today, I woke up to minus temperatures

A frosted blue sky,

And two furry posers down by the lake.

At last – a glorious dawn

Singing its golden promises

Of melting ice and beauty.
