Ruby is getting her mojo back
And enjoying our lake sunsets again.
Under supervision, she jumps up
On rocks for treats.
And, of course, both dogs
Are used to our photo sessions at sunset.
For more patient creatures, please go to: Our World Tuesday.
One day, a golden light burst onto the scene.
Ruby kindly posed (along with a strange shadow creature).
The sky drew lines and swirls
Against an orange background
As the dashing duo posed in the hope of a treat.
Please note: I’m only posting once this week due to work (am away filming) and taking care of Ruby. She had a uterus infection and had to have an emergency operation to remove her uterus and ovaries. The operation was a success, but she needs looking after.

And later on in the week, visit: Skywatch.
A stunning purple sunset —
And puppy kisses:
What could be better?

“Don’t mind us!
We’ll just wait here
While you take hundreds of photos
Of the gorgeous sunset!”

One of the dogs’ favourite places for a swim
Is the jetty next to the floating sauna on our local lake.
I like it too —
Because of all the photo opportunities it gives!
It’s a peaceful place in the early mornings,
Where you can meditate on clouds and their reflections.
(Photos taken in early May.)

The setting sun
Brings lilac with it
And tones of

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.
For more furry friends or otherwise, please visit: Our World.
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.
