When winter gives you freezing cold temperatures
And lots of snow,
The best thing is to embrace it
And smile —
And meet it with wonder and joy.

In honour of the Chinese New Year – it’s Year of the Dog –
I’m featuring some of my favourite furry friends.
Those of you who have followed me for a while will recognize my very best fuzzy friend, Oscar.
When he died,
Two more furry friends, Ruby and Simmie, came into my life.
(It’s not often I get them both in the same picture.)
I love the way dogs embrace life –
And make the most of what they have:
Whether it’s a snowstorm
Or a large stick.
We can learn a lot from dogs.

Last weekend, we had some magical freezing fog.
The dogs were covered in hoar frost,
And the little sauna house
Nestled cozily on the icy lake.
Ruby posed in the mist —
She’ll do anything for a treat! 😉
All shots taken with frosted fingers and my mobile phone.

It’s early autumn here …
And the fields are full of wildflowers still —
And a dog or two.
(A wolf was spotted here a couple of weeks ago too, but it’s long gone.)
There’s nothing more wonderful
Than running free in autumn colours.

Get your camera and two dogs
And walk down to the lake.
Admire the sunset with boats.
Turn away for a few seconds,
Allowing your furry friends to get into the photo.
Then click to get a sweet photobomb.

When you have dogs, there is always the chance
That they will photobomb your shots.
But I think they just add
To the spectacular sunset, don’t you?

Going down to the lake with the dogs
Is my evening pleasure:
Nature provides the best entertainment
As clouds and setting sun
Turn the waters of the lake pink.

It was a blustery, spring evening —
But the light was delicious.
Ruby jumped up on her favourite high rock
As the honey’d rays of the sun glowed.
She was happy to look over her kingdom
Bathed in golden light.
(Simmie was busy running around in circles of joy.)

All our snow melted and we ended up having a green Christmas.
This is nothing new – I found these shots of my dear, departed Oscar
About to enjoy a Christmas Eve swim under a canopy
Of perfect reflections from a few years ago.
A timely reminder that there is beauty
And joy and light in the world.
