A cold and frosty morning……by Dexter

We had a beautiful walk this morning. It was very cold, frosty and fairly foggy, until the sun started to break through. One the sun made a slight appearance, the lighting was perfect and mum’s phone camera was at the ready (of course!).

We took the balls with us too, which Archie particularly enjoyed. I preferred to waddle along, taking in all the fresh new smells around this morning.

Archie and Dexter, the Pet shop Ripon Hurry up and give me that treat, my bottom’s freezing!

This is me posing. Mum was standing in front holding a treat, which is why I was so obliging.  Just wish she didn’t take so long though – crikey, its cold on one’s bottom when it’s frosty!

Archie and d cuter, the pet shop ripon Ball……please give me that ball!

Archie and Dexter, the pet shop ripon It’s MINE!

We did enjoy ourselves so much. Papa (in the background) had lots of fun too, although he didn’t move around as much as we did….haha! Mum called him lazy!!


We have had a lot of rain recently. Rain means wet walks, wet dogs and a very wet me! It also means a rather fast flowing river, which then means no paddling!

So……we have been making our own entertainment, using a huge puddle we came across under a bridge in Ripon.

Puddle paddling!
After a dark sky full of clouds all morning, the sun managed to come out in time for our lunchtime walk, resulting in slightly more colourful pictures than expected!

Rain water tastes so delicious 😀
I just wish there was an easy way to get the dogs dry afterwards! (Oh and remove that special damp doggy odour!)
