My little dog Fred grew up living by a small river, and enjoyed paddling in it most weathers, although of course, particularly during the summer. Then we moved hundreds of kilometers away from there, away from a river, but close to the coast. Salt water and waves are not really to Fred’s liking and so his time in water has been limited.
Recent heavy rains have seen the seasonal watercourse in the front paddock begin to fill up and during a brief sunny period today we dashed out to explore. I think Fred was very glad to get into some water again, despite the chilly temperatures. 🙂
Fortunately the access road to the cottage is built up higher than the paddocks, otherwise my car would be staying put.
