Searching for snow

Gail promised me we'd find some snow on our Sunday walk at Glen Tanar.

Things didn't look too promising at the Visitor Centre.

And those hills covered in white looked very far off.

So we trudged through an awful lot of this…

Before eventually coming across a small patch of this…

Then it was a long walk back through more of this...

And finally, after ten mostly muddy miles, I got dumped in this….


  1. Pawsome pictures! Dere's no snow to be found around here - just cold!

  2. Did you get to stop in Aboing (Aboyne) on the way to Glen Tanar?

    1. No, we bounced right through this time.

  3. Ya know what? As soon as we saw that third picture...the one of the puddley road...we thought, uh oh, a dunk in an icy stream is imminent!

    Glad you found a patch of snow.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    Crikey Bertie - you blend in so well in the white stuff, maybe it is just as well you didn't find too much of it...and for the love of Pete - another frost bath??? You're a hardy bloke, no doubt a bout ye! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. Oh no Bertie you got a dunking. Mine keeps dragging me in puddles on the way home. Not nice at all. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Hey Bertie you know what I noticed about these pictures....well other than a handsome WHFT?
    I noticed that he has a very happy tail
    Hugs madi your bfff

  7. Ah...the indignity of it! We sometimes get hosed off on the driveway, which is cold enough. That must've been frigid


  8. What a beautiful spot for a hike!

  9. YOU FOUND SNOW.... so sorry it was a long hunt. You could have come HERE and found it EVERYWHERE... with ICE on top.
    OMD you got the Water Torture??? IN PUBLIC?

  10. at least you got a good hike out of it :)

  11. What pretty walking places. Finally found the snow. Come on over, we have lots for us to run around in

  12. Someday you will thank Gail, for helping you to become so hardy with the cold foot dunks. Just man up for it and soon you will do it without giving the chill another thought.

    Way to go, Gail!

    Stella and Zkhat

  13. Hmmm. I don't think I could have survived a dunk like that even if it was in the name of snow searching. You're tough, my friend!

  14. Whew Bertie....was it worth it?

  15. Hiya Bertie, I would have loved that walk .... but mum would be itching to get me in the bath afterwards. I really like that patch of snow - I haven't ever found any here!!

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie xxx

  16. Such a pretty patch of snow! And a good long walk!

  17. What's so great about snow anyway Bertie. Mud's much better!
