Braving The Cold… For The Dogs
Oh my! The things we do for our dogs! Yesterday morning it was so cold it took me five minutes to defrost the windscreen. Five minutes with the blower going and using water from the hose. It was bitterly cold.
I put the dogs in the car waiting for a sign that they didn’t want to head out for a walk. Just a refusal to leave the warmth of the house would have been enough. That, of course, never happened. They happily bound into the car and patiently waited while the windscreen de-iced.
I, on the other hand, was wrapped up like a dog’s dinner. Jumpers (and I mean jumpers), woolly hat, gloves and a fleece jacket.
I’m so glad we braved the cold and didn’t go later. The views were beautifully clear with that early morning feel. And we came across a female hoopoe going about her early morning business. When I saw her I froze (the dogs never noticed her), she froze, we eyed each other and whilst I was slowly reaching for my phone to take a photo, she flitted off. So I may not have taken a photo, but we did have a moment that made my day.
My Sunday Photo
I love this view at the best of times, but yesterday with the sun breaking through the clouds it looked very dramatic. I took this photo on my phone with the only tweak being using the de-haze tool.A dramatic early morning view over Turtle island #MySundayPhoto #Zante #Zakynthos Click To Tweet
Do your dogs make you brave the cold?
