Brilliant Colours!


Peeking ever so faintly through the trees in the distance I can see red....


our red and white Canadian flag blowing loosely in the breeze today at the park..


Winter has descended upon us with full gusto
in and out 
like sauerkraut.


But what I noticed the most were the colours on everybody in the park.


Bright blues and oranges...


to brighten up our somewhat drab landscape.


I even nosed a moment with this GL 
and a green and blue possible treat provider 
slipped by me.......imagine that!


More orange to match Mr. Orangie,
kinda made me feel at home.


I really like all these colours 
and I think they show up more 
because winter is here.


I suspect in the summer I wouldn't notice these colours as much,
probably because these peeps wouldn't be so decked out.....I guess!


Then I realized I was proudly displaying
 my Baby Blue collar
 with my olive green leash 
 ~~~one of the gang I am!

    1. Hey Beth....the colours sorta perk up the landscape and me too....I wonder if all brightly coloured peeps have more treats than darkly cloaked peeps....it just crossed my mind, you know!

  5. It's nice to see so many people out enjoying the weather, even if it's a bit nippy.

    1. Even if....that's the truth....we walked the park on New Year's Day thinking we'd run into loads of peeps...only a few brightly coloured ones which is just fine....too many peeps and Sophie Sweetie gets too excited and with the trails covered in uneven ice....treacherous and oh so dangerous! Wouldn't want her to fall let alone us and park friends...so the side trails are our favourite haunts!

    1. I wish it was a lake but it's the North Atlantic Ocean....if it was a lake then....woohooo...we could walk across it and/or skate to the other side. The lakes freeze quickly here and the ocean doesn't have a chance because of the fast tides....I think global warming has taken care of that from now on!

  7. Those treat providers can be tricky critters, can't they?

    1. My nose beelines it too every pocket, particularly ladies pockets...Why you ask? Because my daycare ladies from years ago always had treats in their pockets. Transference...that's what I've done.

    1. I think you are right, Sharon...I remember somber blue, brown, grey and black...life has changed with the stores pushing brightly coloured clothing...actually you can see peeps better if need be.

  12. Beautiful winter photos. The brightness of the snow is just what we need this time of year when it's so drab outdoors. Do your paws get cold, Sophie?

    1. Not yet....Martha....my paws have been really good. Apparently Ron's 1st doggy, Ginger a Boxer used to get freezing paws. It hurt, but mine are just fine...lucky mutt that I am. Once again, thanks for the FUNKALICIOUS AWARD...you made my day....really you did!

  15. You're right, in the winter everything and everyone is more colorful! And, it probably is b/c of the snowy white background. I think it's pretty cool! Happy Wednesday!

  17. I like the new look of your blog, Sophie - it's refreshing! The bright colors are beautiful, and it's neat how that orange coat makes Mr. Orange pop in your mouth. However I happen to think the winter landscapes in pics 3 and 6 are dramatic and spectacular! I'm glad your tootsies stay warm! Stay warm on today's travels!

    1. Thanks Louise...I needed a new look and am prone to changing it all the time...such is my excitement. The weather was minus 24 Celsius today....helppppp! So cold and damp cold too! I got some more pics though...Sophie helped me out in that department again!

  20. Happy New Year to you Sophie and your dads. Hope 2013 is a good one for you all. So envious that you have snow...we don't get that very often in the SW of England (did have some 2 years ago, yay) so it is lovely to see your photographs. Looked like a lovely walkies.

  28. I find the same thing as you, Sophie. In the dimmer and darker days of winter, certain things seem so bright to me - things that I'd never notice in the summer. I love seeing so many people out walking in the winter weather. Winter has descended on us with gusto too!
