Frosty Morning Dog Walk

There was a beautiful sunrise here this morning, really orange and pink. It was lovely to see everywhere white with a harsh frost and so I donned the layers to take Barry for a walk; Jack usually does his morning walks so Barry did in fact have two this morning, not that he's complaining as he loves walks and gets quite a few every day!

I love the crunch of the frost underfoot; there were frosty snowdrops and daffodils in flower as we made our way to the field where we walk Barry in the mornings and Barry enjoyed attempting to chase a Red Kite who sat perched on one of the fence posts! Sadly he flew off before I could get a photo.

We didn't bump into any of Barry's doggy pals this morning, much to Barry's disappointment but he chased after his tennis ball instead and attempted to sniff out rabbit poo - one of his favourite foods!

And a close-up of his face as he actually stood still for five seconds; though his usual alert ears were back as he could hear the distant traffic of the A34 rumbling past!

Have a good day everyone!

  1. Similar conditions here this morning too, I only saw the sunrise as I decided to take Rocky out half an hour later than usual. It was very pretty though xx

  2. What a lovely close up of Barry, he's a very handsome pooch. Archie always seems to pick up more scents when it's frosty, I don't know if the frost intensifies them but he's always got his nose to the ground in these conditions.

  3. Hi Emma, I've just found your blog via Kimberley over at Creative Chaos and I'm looking forward to reading more about you, Jack and Barry. Just had a quick read of a few posts and it would seem we have a few things in common xx

    1. Thank you Tracy, lovely to meet you! I've been following your blog for a while now and love your posts :-) Sorry it's taken me so long to reply to your comment; started a new job and been having blog problems too, hopefully all fixed now! Em x
