This winter has been long and very cold – the coldest on record in Lola Pug’s hometown. The brutal cold means that The Pug and I haven’t really been able to get out and about on any adventures in our favourite place – the great outdoors.
But for all of the cold, it has been crisp, remarkably slush-free (dark and slushy winters are the WORST), and it has been bright. Oh, so bright. Sunshine almost every day.
But there comes a breaking point for everyone, and The Pug reached her’s about a month ago.
We tried everything to keep ourselves amused indoors. Squirrel log…stuffy toys…Karateo Dog…even indoor disk throwing, just to get a taste of remembrance of warmer days past.
But both Lola and I eventually slumped into a bit of a winter blargh, and a certain little pug became a master of her new, favourite winter sport…sunbeam basking.
First, you have to find a sunbeam…
…then you have to position yourself juuuuust so…
…and once you have achieved the optimal angle…let the basking begin….
A couple of days ago, I noticed that the temperature outside was reaching a less face-breaking level, so I woke a disbelieving HRH up from her sunbeam splendour…
…and carried her outside. I found a spot where the temperature and the sunbeams were juuuust right…
…and all was once again right with the world.
It feels a bit too early to welcome a new season in, so we will simply say YAY for warmer weather, and OH MY GOD, FINALLY we can go outside again.
Even Lola’s friend, Donald, has a bounce in his step with the warmer weather.
It is coming, my poppets. Spring – with all of it’s mud and glory – is just around the corner.
Get your raincoats ready!
…but we won’t focus on that just yet.
Time to find a sunbeam to dream in.
Until next week!

House full of sun worshippers here as well. And yeah, brutal winter. No winter fans here.
Lola, you look stunnig as always, and we must get together soon!
We have felt the same this winter . . . ugh! It will end soon, hopefully!
