Two words…WIND & MUD!!

Today’s weather was just horrendous!! Freezing cold wind and unpredictable lashings of rain! I have to say it is the only weather that makes me long for a warm house rather than a nice walk with the dogs! True to their nature though the dogs were undeterred and still had a ball. Their happy enthusiastic natures are infectious 🙂

Woopeee!!! Oscar is secretly a champion show jumper!

Winter Wonderland…

Another beautiful day in the snow. It was picture perfect today in the woods, almost every photo taken could go straight onto a postcard!

The only little snag is that Ella’s coat attracts the snow like a magnet! At one point I thought she was going to completely turn into a snowman!!
