Sun dogs

Ruby is getting her mojo back

And enjoying our lake sunsets again.

Rubyboat.jpg

Under supervision, she jumps up

On rocks for treats.

And, of course, both dogs

Are used to our photo sessions at sunset.

Orange love

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.

For more dashing stories, please check out: Our World. (I’m the host!)

And later on in the week, visit: Skywatch.

 


Sunset love

A stunning purple sunset —

And puppy kisses:

What could be better?

Patience

“Don’t mind us!

We’ll just wait here

Waiting.jpg

While you take hundreds of photos

Of the gorgeous sunset!”

Swim time!

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!

Jetty.jpg

It’s a peaceful place in the early mornings,

Where you can meditate on clouds and their reflections.

(Photos taken in early May.)

Spring: Viking-style

Afternoon sunset

Finds us enjoying the cold.

Dogs.jpg

The setting sun

Brings lilac with it

Sunset1.jpg

And tones of

Frozen gold.

Winter joy

When winter gives you freezing cold temperatures

And lots of snow,

Run.jpg

The best thing is to embrace it

And smile —

And meet it with wonder and joy.

Year of the Dog

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.

My dear departed 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.)

Ruby and Simmie at dawn

I love the way dogs embrace life –

And make the most of what they have:

Ruby in the snow

Whether it’s a snowstorm

Or a large stick.

We can learn a lot from dogs.

Magical freezing fog

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.

Autumn scenes

It’s early autumn here …

And the fields are full of wildflowers still —

Flowerpower.jpg

And a dog or two.

(A wolf was spotted here a couple of weeks ago too, but it’s long gone.)

Simmie.jpg

There’s nothing more wonderful

Than running free in autumn colours.
