Can a dog smile?

It was a glorious winter day

With snow, sun and sparkles on the trees.

That made me smile.

A long walk with friends

To chase

— That’s what made Simmie smile.

After two hours of running around

And enjoying the scenery —

We were all tired and happy.

(That’s my Ruby on the right as you look at the photo and Simmie on the back left

With Jessie, Ruby’s puppy, standing in front of him.)

Photobombing fun

It’s tulip season again — and it’s always

Lovely to bring spring inside when it’s still winter outside.

Ruby wanted to get in on the action

And provided a warm, fuzzy background for the tulips.

Now it was time to photograph Ruby,

But the tulips had other ideas and decided

To photobomb her!😉

(Or maybe it was just me having fun with different focus points.)

Then Simmie decided it was unfair

That he wasn’t in the pictures,

So he muscled in on the action,

Photobombing Ruby.

Snowy memories

At the moment, it’s grey and not particularly pretty out.

I do like grey skies, however,

Especially when they are laden with snow!

There is something magical about not seeing the sky

And being able to enjoy the dancing snowflakes (and a puppy) instead.

Of course, it’s even better if the sun breaks through the clouds

Just before disappearing behind the hill.

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.

Early morning.jpg

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.

Sweet.jpg

I hope you don’t mind.

After all, who can resist those sweet furry faces

Puppies.jpg

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.

Photobombing

Simson loves

To photobomb my shots.

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.
