  1. What a nice wet pooch! And your car’s backseat is perfectly set up for mopping up spaniels. They’re like sponges.

    Reminds me of Ricky (my old boy, who now lives with parents) who when I held him up to see into the fountain on the VA campus, promptly jumped in. he swam around & around in the fountain, very happily. I’m glad nobody saw us. 😉

  2. Thanks for the reminder that at some point, it will be cold(ish) here again!! I wonder if your cold pictures could put out a fire, because if they could we could really use a few more down here!!

  3. Ooh, yeah. You know, the M8 was closed sometime around Christmas, here in Glasgow, so that they could remove the gigantic icicles which were threatening to damage passing vehicles. I missed it. Sigh.

  4. hi wendy,

    as always your photos give me so much pleasure, especially the ones of marco, he is always up to his eyes in water or snow!!! whats he like???

    I had lots of comments on my snow pics on facebook from my friend from australia, she has been baking in 40 c heat and yearning for snow!!

    thanks again for your photos xxx

  5. Oh wow. These pictures really show how comprehensive the snow cover is. David must be in heaven every weekend. Lovely photographs and that dog is hardy! love Shona

  6. Wonderful pictures again. You’ve mentioned before that Marco is just out of shot either making ripples or straining to get into the water. He really managed it this time – did he con you into letting him take the stick home!

  7. Thank you so much for the comments on my blog! I do agree with what you wrote about Finnish; the vowels are constant and easier than the grammatical system!

    Your blog is beautiful, by the way!


  8. Celia – There is a similarity in the lights, isn’t there? 🙂

    Sarah – At low level, I suspect you guys had a bit more snow this month though. Some consolation at least?

    Deb – Thank you!

    Josee – Thank you to you too!

    Sylvie – Come on up!

    Elizabeth – You too!

    Kimj – I do love my car seat cover. 🙂

    Em – I can’t even imagine the heat you guys have been dealing with. Really.

    Sally – You’re very welcome!

    David – Thank you. 🙂

    Helen – Thank you too!

    Davi – I heard about that. Must have been some incredibly icicles!

    Megan – Yeah, I can’t keep him out of it at all.

    Shona – Don’t be fooled. Marco’s a wimp! And yes, David is in heaven.

    Keith – Thank you! 🙂

    Mel – Thank you from us both. 🙂

  9. Wendy – How could I?! My sincere apologies. 🙂 When we’re at Loch Ness Marco tends to fetch sticks from the water then take them to some dry “safe” spot where he lays them down very gently as if to say “There. That’s where you’re supposed to be.” But if we’re walking in the local woods then a stick MUST be taken home. My garden is a mess!
