We had a wonderful winter walk this morning. The weather was fine, nice and sunny. In the shadowy spots the ground was still frozen, but where the sun had warmed the earth the ice had melted away. Which is good, because one can’t smell a lot on frozen things, even with an exceptionally sensitive nose as mine.
We walked along the canal to the forest. It turned out to be pretty busy, a lot of humans and dogs were walking there. I am a bit cautious in the forest, because sometimes I encounter bad mannered dogs in this place. So when I sense another dog, I stop and smell the air:
Gladly, there were only well mannered dogs today (for instance my friend Juna). So we got on and enjoyed the walk. It is a very pretty place:
We walked on and gradually the forest got thinner and the sandy dunes appeared. This is a nice place, because one can see very far:
After enjoying the view we walked on to the beach. I love the beach. When I get onto the beach I run:
I run very fast:
There were a lot of dogs to run and play with, which was nice. I really enjoy doing that, I like it best when I can fetch their balls. I always get there first, you know, because I am the fastest dog on the beach:
I ran and ran and fetched balls and then we walked through the forest back to our home. It was great fun. When we got home, I went upstairs to my favorite chair and look: the sun was shining directly on it! Very nice. I will sleep the rest of the day and wake up when M has my dinner ready.
