We took the dogs snow-shoeing the other day.
I think Tristan heard a meadow vole under the snow. They are hardy little creatures who tunnel around under the snow in winter. I often see their footprints leading to drop-holes in the snow.
Sophie hears something too!
My pretty girl. Hard to believe she's nine now. She hasn't slowed down a bit.
Unlike Tristan, who likes to take breaks when we go out for a walk! He is nine too.
And he always loves a good roll on the ground, in any weather.
"Make sure you get my best side!"
Wild turkey tracks next to old dog tracks. Or is that old old dog tracks?
I love the light in winter. The snow is covered with a thin crust of ice from recent freezing rain.
Drop and roll!
A boy and his dog!
It's great having these three to snowshoe with.
Tristan is getting white around the muzzle.
And I think these are crow tracks.
Love my almost-daily outings!
