Basking in the summer sun... :)

A few pictures from our weekend, a walk around our favourite Arthur's Seat while taking in the summer sun and spending time in each other's company. Mostly these few are of Spanner, but who's complaining?!

Cooling his wee paws!

I love this last picture of my wee man so much! He could smell the water from the top of the hill and kept running on ahead of us trying to find it through the long grass. We just assumed he was desperate for a drink but as soon as he found it he plonked himself right in the middle, up to his wee belly and just stood there, cooling his hot paws!

I have a whole bunch of other pictures I want to share too, because you guys know I can't go anywhere without getting a few pretty macro shots. Plus I found myself a great new filter! I'll be back later with those once I've had the chance to upload them...

  9. I've just stumbled upon your blog.. first thing I see: Arthur's Seat.. I just love it.. Edinburgh has a very special meaning for me.. Just wanted to tell it.. :)
    Thank you for the smile that came across my face.

  10. I think I'm in love with your dog!
    My first dog was a cocker spaniel, but he was terrified of water--never once did he step foot in it by choice. Now my family has a little terrier who hops in the pond daily. Animals are always so funny and sweet.

  11. Emma, thank you for the views, macro and micro. It's been too long since I was in Edinburgh.

    That Spanner is a very bright pup!

    Best wishes.

  12. Oh my, Spanner is just gorgeous!!
