Tarka the puppy discovers snow
Yes, I know we were going to discuss those poems. But first I just have to share this moment of deliciousness with you.
We woke up to the first snowfall of winter yesterday morning. Tarka, being only three and a half months’ old, has never encountered the white stuff before. I’m not sure who enjoyed our morning walk more: her, overcoming her initial suspicion and discovering all the fun to be had in the snow, or me, laughing at her enthusiasm and trying to keep up with my camera as she galloped about in the powder.
If you read my previous puppy posts, you’ll notice how fast she is growing. Indoors, she is still the baby of the family: outside, she is already a young dog with fully-formed instincts. Much training (and frustrated bellowing from mum!) ahead for us over the next few months, I think. And much fun too: it is snowing heavily again this morning. Our Westie stays curled up by the wood stove on days like this, but Tarka and I am looking forward to our walks this winter.
