While many people around the country have seen enough snow to last them a lifetime, here in Leicester it’s only been intensely frosty over the past week or so. Until today that is, when we woke up to a blanket of the white stuff. Give me a couple of days and I’m sure I’ll be heartily sick of it, but today it’s still fresh and fun. The dogs love it and I love watching them playing and exploring in their new snowy world.

First off, there’s snow-wrestling, a good way to keep warm. Fargo and Billy wrestle all the time, in any weather, but like a lot of dogs they seem to feel extra playful in the snow. Charlie’s not so bothered about wrestling, although he does stay out in the garden for longer in this weather. At 12 years old and having recently recovered from a big operation, he likes to explore a bit and eat some snow before retreating under a quilt.
Then there’s snow camouflage. Both Fargo and Billy have quite good markings for this, as you can see from the pictures.
