A Snowy Walk
The dogs & their antics in the snow never fail to amuse me! We took them for a bracing tramp across the fields yesterday to run off some of their pent up energy. Toby had to have his little jumper on as he doesn't have very much fur, unlike Lucy with her thick coat. Lucy was in her element - running at least 3 or 4 times further than everyone else, sniffing every interesting thing she could find, splashing through icy puddles & through snow drifts - she was soaking wet & didn't care one little bit. It's amazing how her coat just seems to repel the water so that by the time we got back she was just damp & only needed a rub down & dry off by the fire.
Bet you didn't know that Jack Russells could do hand stands did you?
Snowball catching champion of the world!
The sheep didn't look too happy but as they are wearing wool they should be quite cosy!
Here I am standing in the snow - you can see how deep it is & more heavy snow is forecast for tomorrow. The Boy went back to school today - they had been clearing around the school with a snow plough over the weekend but I don't know how long that will last if it snows again.
Why are people panic buying? The shelves at the supermarket looked decidedly bare on Friday - only skimmed milk available & I saw lots of people buying big bottles of water. There were no crumpets to have with my tea & no carrots - do you think rabbits & horses are stocking up?
Unlike the dogs, these two below are not at all charmed with the snow - I have to force them to go out for a bit!
