Is it cruel to take a dog, whose belle is 3 inches from the floor, for a walk in the snow? Um, not when his parents are childlike and want to trudge through the white stuff and act like clowns.
We donned Eddy's new sweater and we wrapped up with our bestest winter warmers and trekked over to the Three Sister park (a stones throw from our house). Ellie opted to stay snugged under blankets but then we would have had a hard time pushing her chair around in this lot!
Here is what we did:
At the start of our walk, fairly light before the sun went down. Its gorgeous here.
Dark amongst the hedgerows but poppets of red sure add a christmas tinge to the whole affair.
Run to me Eddy - run, run run
Mark, Im not ready for my picture plus....I am freezing!
These are my favourite walkways at the park, all secretly hidden and not most people know they exist! It was really dark down here.
Ive always loved running my hands through these reeds when I walk past but, um, not today!
The walk back home getting darker and darker.
He heeeeeeeeeeeee - time to warm up a little!
The moon guiding our path, it was quite serene.
Its now a solid lump of ice outside and far to treacherous for dog walking (as from tomorrow, I expect.). Going to do another winter walk this afternoon before its gets too treacherous.
As for the rest of this morning? Im wrapping all our pressies - time to get the crimbo tunes on!
