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.

No matter how you look at it —
Or without a dog:
Winter is beautiful.

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.

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.

The golden light of October
Is as sweet as honey.
LIfe is hectic around here again
And I’m away with work, so won’t be able to comment on your blogs.
For more sweet moments, please visit: Our World.
To photobomb my shots.
And you know what?
I think the results
Are just perfect.

It’s amazing how much a sky – and a beach –
Can change in the space of a day or two:
From cloudy drama
To the joyfulness
Of dogs frolicking
In a glorious sunset.

Winter is at its best during early spring.
After days of warmth,
A fresh snowfall looks so pretty.
The hazel flowers covered in ice
Captured my imagination.
Spring is about taking two steps back
And one step forward —
So we may as well enjoy the spring salsa.
Just like Ruby
And Simson (that’s him goofing around in the background) do.

Ruby’s previous owner trained her to jump up
On very tall rocks for treats. She seems to enjoy it.
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!
In the meantime, Ruby remained at the top,
Enjoying the sunshine in majestic solitude.

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.
