Snowy Doggie

We haven't had a great deal of snow but what bit we have had has now turned mostly into packed ice which isn't very pleasant to walk on. Some bits have melted where the sun has reached them.

I wasn't brave enough to take the dogs out yesterday so they had to make do with a run around in the frozen yard. Today I figured it would be best to just get on with it and take them out. One at a time though because otherwise I would be on my backside more times than upright.

I dared to venture into the park with Daisy. Thankfully somebody had gritted the slope up into it and it was almost melted on the grass. I did manage a couple of photos with my phone.

As for Charlie - well he isn't very good off his lead and is going back to dog training in the new year so he just had a street walk which was scary to say the least. My wellies have quite a bit of grip but not when a dog is pulling with all his might. Anybody watching would have been laughing their ass off.
Next time - our holiday last weekend to Center Parcs at Sherwood Forest. Not got enough time to tell you about it now so maybe on monday or tuesday.
Oh and before I go - the challenge on my shop blog is running until 31st December and has a prize of 5 packets of white flowers. Also running in the shop is the Christmas Countdown half price offer. Everyday there will be a different item running at half price. Today it is Rainbow Pearls & Crystals which are so versatile and the colours are fabulous.

Walking dogs in snow and ice is always scary! Glad you made it without falling!

Merry Christmas from sunny West Oz. Thanks for your visit, please come back any time. I do remember snow.

I was walking back from our carol service on Sunday night, sliding down the icy pavement, thinking 'Thank goodness I'm not walking a dog right now!' - so I totally sympathise!
