Did I tell you that when I went south 2 weeks ago, we managed ( Brigitte and I) to take the dogs out for 2 walks...Not just 2 walks, but 2 walks after driving through places that make you dream of summer vacation and good wine: Vacqueyras, Baume de Venise, Rasteau are some of the road signs we saw. We did manage to stop in one winery for a very very quick tasting...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C%C3%B4tes_du_Rh%C3%B4ne_AOC
Do a zoom on the map A( click several times to make it bigger) and you'll see where we were... between Rasteau and Vacqueyras. Nice, eh?
Anyway. If I don't travel with my dogs, then I don't go anywhere!
Back to the subject at hand. Brigitte knows of a pond hidden deep in the wine country and the day we went there, it was soooooooooo cold and windy that I could hardly snap photographs, my fingers were so frozen.
The sun was shining, and my gloves were in the car... So off we went around the pond.
Brigitte picked up a dead cormorant that we used for the dogs to retrieve.
Great place... Can hardly wait to go back!
Yipppppppiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeee, free at last. Freezing water they just went right in!
The garden the next morning. It started snowing right after! We went back to that great pond knowing the dogs would be locked up all day the next day...The photo on the right is GuyGuy and Thelma. Never have to ask them to go in the water.
Thelma, dripping wet. Probably one of the nicest photos with the Dentelles de Montmirail in the background, peace quiet...and Guyguy in the foreground.
Brigitte and that thing.
Now you see why we wanted them to have a great time on Friday and Saturday? They are so good about it, those little angels
And no, I did not spend the evening brushing them for the show. They went as one does when one is a rustic dog
