It may be bitterly cold, but the dogs love it

The dog's don't seem to mind how cold the weather is, as long as they can enjoy a good run morning and evening

I took this picture yesterday morning while we were on the bridleway that goes alongside our local wood.

Luckily for us, when the dogs are in a pack like this, the puppies and youngsters all follow the example of the leaders.

When we change direction, or go somewhere new, all we have to do is whistle, or call "this way" and they all come running at high speed - desperate to be the first to discover whatever it is that's there!
