As has been our tradition, the days between Christmas and New Year are spent in our winter “resort”, that is, at Pille’s friendly home. This time I had Alvin and TRim with me. Merike (kennel Double Flame) drove us there through snowfall and spent a full day with usWalks in snow were enjoyed both by dogs and us. We also visited Rianna’s brother River who had grown into a strong and handsome male. Our way back home was again through snowfall.
