At fifty seven point two degrees North ...

Yesterday afternoon, only half past three, and the river was turning pink...

Sunday, walking in the Deeside hills,  the path was all dusted with cold white powdery stuff and my paws were tingling...

And I couldn't tell where to tread...

Now which was the way to the equator?


  1. Bertie,

    If you're not sure about snow and would like cool mornings and evenings and warm sunny days with clear skies, palm trees and bright flowers to wile away the winter --- tell Gail to send you on holiday here.

    Wirey woofs,

    Jake and Just Harry

  2. Finding the Equator sounds like a very good idea! I am hop on that jet plane with you!!
    Hugs and wags, Mistaya

  3. No Bertie you don't want to go there, with our terrier thick coats we'd get to hot, its bad enough with the heating on, I can see me getting a dog house outside!!! to keep cool, good for the beer to ;)

  6. We haven't gotten any snow here yet. I'm in NO hurry!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  7. Bertie, bet you'll be zoomin' around in that stuff in no time!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  8. Hullo Bertie, You are waxing poetic, aren't you? About the sky, snow and water? Suits me, I like it!


  9. Are you kidding us? It's startin' to get dark at 3PM??? Yeesch...and you have SNOW?????

    Oh, Bertie...perhaps you should go and find a cave and hibernate for a while???


    Grow your furs!



  10. You better fill your backpack with treats and water if you are going to go look for a thing called the equater.

  11. Bertie
    That white stuff is fun to kick around in. we have none here yet, so you can come and see me and we can go and have some Tacos!!


  12. Bertie - Catch up on your sleep now because in the summer it never gets dark.

  13. Oh Bertie, this is your first winter and we are delighted to see that you are already experiencing the beauty.
    No need to head to the equator - you will love your walks on brisk winter days.
    You will love seeing the world turn white!
    Just wait until you see the wintery cobwebs in the trees - you just wont believe how intricate they are!
    You can look forward to cosy nights in front of the fire - tea and toasted crumpets!
    When you are a little older we are sure Gail will show you where Hamish stashed his 'wee dram'.
    Stay cosy

  14. Hi Bertie

    It certainly is turning quite chilly. Did you have all those nasty high winds? We were nearly blown out of our own garden yesterday.

    Keep warm and stay safe.

    Molly, Taffy and Monty

  15. We haven't got snow but we have HORRID winds.

    Like the pink sky photo.

  16. Yeah sort of depressing eh Bertie it being dark and dreary. Least you have the white clean stuff not the cats and dogs. And why are the squares not taking me for my walkies at the right time and my breakfast and dinner being dished up so late? Does Gail do the same? Huh? A half way meeting time would be nice wouldn't it.

    Wiry love and kisses your proud Uncle Eric xxx

    Ahh lookie at you all upgrown and square : )

  17. Guess you're learning one of those "life balances out" lessons, sweetie. The price of endless days of light in summer is endless days of dark in winter. We would expect such an advanced academic as yourself to know that, but sometimes the academic world insulates from the real world, sometimes it expands upon it. We're not as far north as you, so our days and nights are not as unequal as yours, but we are also remarking upon the change.
