A frosty morning at the dog park

Izzy and I make a regular weekly date to go to the dog park on Sunday morning.  For most of the year, especially in winter, we have the dog park to ourselves.

This morning was frosty and cold but with lots of birdsong.

Here she is, chasing down a tennis ball and coming back to me:

Because Izzy has lost some teeth, her tongue usually hangs out of the side of her mouth

Throw another one, Mum!

Zoomies

It’s been feeling a little warmer over the last couple of days; the clear days with sun make me think that spring isn’t far off.

Izzy is feeling it, too.  On Sunday, she got so warm after chasing her tennis balls at the dog park that she sat down in mud puddle to cool off (she wasn’t so keen on the bath that followed).

Yesterday, she did ‘zoomies’ in the back yard; something she hasn’t done for over a month since it has been so cold…
