It's been a snowy week...

...and I couldn't be happier! 

The week begins at dawn in Duthie Park 

Tuesday sees a trip to Dunecht Estate

Where I roll in the snow

And yet more snow falls

I pause for a snack...

... while Gail warms up

Snow deepens as we reach Dunecht House

And I audition for Abominable Snowdog

Back home, this is the scene on our street 

On Wednesday I meet a handsome friend in the park 

Then pose by the frozen River Dee on Thursday

Ice is nice, right?

I end the week in a blur of joy! 

Happy Nature Friday friends. I do hope you've been enjoying the weather in your neck of the woods!


  1. your Gail had the best idea, we will take tea with us for the long walk too... if you can not wear a tea-shirt it's time for tea right?

  2. Wow - so much snow Bertie! What fun you've had, you really look as though you're enjoying yourself, but I hope that your little paws weren't cold.
    Did Gail build you a snowman in the garden?
    It's very warm here - 19º overnight, so we shan't get any snow any time soon.

  3. Your snow is so beautiful, Bertie, and we can tell that you are loving it! Ice is nice as long as it stays on the ponds and not under our feets.

  4. I don't see any pupachino with that thermos. you look so pretty in the snow, love the snow flakes on your face, makes me want to hug you close. all the photos are gorgeous and my favorite is the stand off between you and the retriever... so happy you got your outting in the snow...

  5. How pawsome that you have some snow! It looks like you have really been out enjoying it too. We are not out much the past week, nor will we be until later next week. Our temps are dangerously cold, -20 to -25 celcius, so we are just taking short fast walks until it warms up.

    Bertie lad, these photos are simply joyous, bursting wtih bounce and it is clear you are in your element!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-auntyxxx

  7. What an absolutely gleeful post Bertie. Might I say that you are a most fashionable WFT such a variety of lovely jumpers and snow coats.
    A roll in the snow looked like a ton of fun did you collect any snowfreaks on your undercarriage.
    Hugs and Happy Valentine Weekend to you and Gail

    1. Hi Cecilia,
      Thank you for your lovely comment. As always much appreciated. In answer to your question, my undercarriage remained clear, but I did accumulate some of those pesky snowballs on my legs and in my beard. Not enough to stop my bouncing though!
      Toodle pip!

  8. Wow, you sure look like you're having fun!! The snow looks nice and soft around you. When we get it here, it's all hard and crunchy, and I hate to walk on it.

  9. Beautiful photos, Gail and Bertie. Lovely to see you, Bertie, so actively enjoying your time outside with Gail.

  10. It's a good thing you like snow! Guess your mild Autumn and early winter are in the distant past...

  11. Hi friend, Ojo here! You look very handsome in your coat with snow on your snout! Hurray for snow!!

  12. You are looking so very happy(and handsome) on your snowy walks Bertie!!

  13. You sure look like you were enjoying all that snow, Bertie. We have lots more if you want to come play here.

  14. How we love Abominable Snowdog Bertie!!! You are having so much fun in that snow. We wish we could join you for a hike too.

  15. Bertie, you look so beautiful - and bouncy - in the snow, and very warm in your handsome sweater. The blue jacket is very classy, too.

  16. I’m sure you will get the part of the Abominable Snow Dog, you’re so cute! How could they not choose you? Have fun in the snow, and keep Gail warm. ♥️ Scarlett

  17. Of course you know I am so jealous, as all my snows here in the city have disappeared!!! Can I come visit?

    Your friend Rosie
