Its here!

 Rug Rat Mk2 has never seen the white stuff so it was quite nice to wake up to this sunday morning.
 We have had a few years without snow so it was obviously making up for it by dumping more than we have ever had in one go.
 By the end of play it was still snowing and well over 12 inches had fallen.
 Naturally the dogs enjoyed what they were made for.
 RRMK2 was ok about it all and was desperately keen to make snow angels.
 Which he did like a pro
 along with the apprentice
 and MBAOSPW joined in.
 Rocky posed for pics
 looking amazing
 and showing how heavy it was snowing.
 Winter wonderland everywhere we looked.
 Mr Bear plodding on
 Daffodil and Petal hiding
 Rocky Racing along
 discovering his inner puppy
 They needed their wooly jumpers hahahaha
 Tasha, Bryn and Rio
 Racing
 Apollo and Trevor
 Rio
 Stan under 16 inches of snow
 Sven, Holly, Reuben and Noel
 same again
 Bala the old.
 Once the novelty of freezing to death had worn off it was time to construct the gingerbread house for Christmas
 Judging by the bulging cheeks of RRMK2 the sampling is going well.
 Tricky bit...
Complete...it lasted 4 hours before they demolished part of it.

Highs and lows

 A day of highs and lows
 with the start early doors on the summit of the Bonsai Mountain
 with Sven and several other K9s.
 Back in time for breakfast at Rock HQ. This is the view into the cauldron with the Bonsai Mountain lurking on the skyline.
 After lunch via work I was here, Ynsyslas, hurrah for sand and sunshine
 and festive driftwood (Rudolf anyone?)
 crowded beaches were not a problem
 so Mrs Bear and I shared our sandwiches
 and had a good old walk, or rather we didn't.
 We pottered.
 And sniffed dead things.
Ours were the only prints on the beach today.

Growing pains

 Our unexpected litter of Golden Berners are growing at an alarming rate.
 Three weeks old they are eating solids
 and spend all their time out of the whelping box.
 Have to admit it..
they are adorable.
