Red Caper



With the exilerating, refreshing winter weather we are having,
our visits to the park are much more uplifting
because we are meeting dog walkers and joggers
all with the same view
~~~Get Out There and Enjoy~~~
It's only winter so what if it's cold
it makes you move faster and laugh harder.


So this little black munchkin popped up around the corner 
as we descended the hill
the other morning,
all decked out in his red finery
 Clancey's his name.
What do you think of his red cape?


I think it's the "cat's meow" or
the "doggy's woof"
whichever suits your fancy.


All I know is this lady had me in the palm of her hands.
I will do anything ladies ask of me.


I got what I wanted~~~a treat!
Smile
So follow me.


Just around the bend I ran into these 2 Poodles/Doodles.
They were full of vim and vigour just like me.
Surprise!


We had a tete a tete!
Sniff here and a sniff there(you know where)!
A conflab of ginornmous proportions and 
scooted off down the road passed this view.


I really love our world,
especially in the winter!

~~~more to come~~~

  2. I don't blame you one bit Sophie, your world is just beautiful. you're a lucky girl to be able to share such a beautiful day with some friends.

    I'm attaching a link to a story of something that happened in my area. A bit of doddle mischief going on around these parts.

    Thought you and your dad's might get a giggle..

    1. That video is very interesting...I sure hope it didn't frighten some unsuspecting person who has a lion phobia...can you just imagine...another reason to 'come down on ' dogs!
      It was fun though...the hopping happy doodle is not much different than Sophie Tophie!

      Cheers Jen

    1. I hope the rain isn't torrential because that could just be plain annoying. Our winters for the passed couple of years have been(knock on wood) bearable and that is all we can hope for this year.

      Cheers!

  6. New friends meeting in the snow, what a wonderful day. Do you ever have to wear booties to protect your feet, or is that just when there are a lot more ice crystals there?? Cheers from Jean

    1. No booties for me, Jean.

      They would come off as soon as I hopped and wiggled my way down the trail. I try not to walk in areas that would cause frozen ice to develop between my toes. The park is the perfect place to walk because "salt" is the culprit that causes toe/feet freezing problem. The streets and sidewalks are covered in salt to melt the ice and thus cause me problems...I stay clear of any of those areas! Thus, the park is my FRIEND!!!

      Cheers JeanDoodle!

  7. I love Clancey's red cape. Annie has a very similar red jumper for this cold weather.
    Nothing better than meeting up with new pals and having a run around to keep warm!

    1. Hey Ryker~~~~~I haven't seen any of your cousins at the park lately! That's odd because you guys are so much fun to run and play with~~~~my cousin Shelby lives in Edmonton and it's super cold there~~~~I saw her last summer on Prince Edward Island~~~~sure miss her! I hope live is treating you well, Ryker!
      Take care!

    1. Hi Lori~~~~

      I do enjoy myself, I guess that is obvious!!!!!

      I make a point of approaching everyone, so the Dads have to be aware because sometimes there are peeps who are not comfortable with hyper-active pooches! I'm learning though!

  11. Mickey doesn't have as big of a winter coat as you, Sophie, and he spends a lot of time in the barn helping us, so he has 2 winter jackets. One is made by a company that makes horse blankets and it's styled like a miniature horse blanket, so we call him Horse Number 5 when he wears it.

    1. Hey maybe I could be Horse #6~~~~I'm ready, willing and oh so able!!!!

  12. Clancey looks very posh. I think Sophie thought he was "kindda" cute ;-)

    1. I do believe you are right,IA!!!!!The cute factor was overboard today~~~~both of them knew it I think!

  13. Sophie, you smart girl! You've figured out that being friendly can get you treats sometimes! Looks like a wonderful day, you had; met lots of friends along the way! Yes, winter can be a lot of fun!

    1. SOMETIMES~~~is the operative word, Martha~~~~~Sophie is on "seek out and eat all treats" patrol all the time~~~~~~ SO we have to be ever so vigilant with certain peeps who are feeble or just not comfortable doing the DoodleDance with Sophie!

  14. That red cape makes Clancey look like Superman! Or Superdog, perhaps more accurately.

  17. Hey Sophie, you exude "happy" and I'm betting Ron would not be out there taking photos on that beautiful but cold day if you weren't reminding him how much fun it can be.

  21. I love our world in the winter too, Sophie!
    Did that lady have Mr. Orange in her palm too?
    Our snow is melting away too, but we might get some tomorrow night.
    Stay warm!

    1. No~~~~Mr. Orangie is not permitted to jump ship and take up residence in anyone else's pocket/glove/knapsack or hat! I am very OCD about Mr. O!!! In case you haven't noticed! LOL
      I love seasons~~~~all 4 seasons!
      I bet you have the best of seasons too~~~~high up in the mountains!

  22. Whew! I'd be OCD about Mr. Orange too, Sophie, if he were mine!
    We have wonderful seasons here in Colorado. Sometimes we have all four seasons in one day!
    I'm seeing hints of spring in the fattening of leaf buds on trees, but I'm not getting excited because April is one of our snowier months, and it's a way off.
    Have a good weekend!
