Winter walks in ROSSI's Wood's :)
Carolina with ( from the left ) Cherie, Orrine, Rossi and Dixie
Our wonderfull 13 years old treasure Cherie also still enjoys a walk
and snow is always tempting to put her nose into :-)
Rossi's park is a large place and at this time of a year its a true
There were tons of snow in Finland this year, nice to look at or ski on
but walking was possible only on man-made paths
There are all kinds of decorations of animals
made from wood
Our favorite is this lovely Owl
To sit on the benches in the winter is hardly tempting,
in summer its another story :)
All our four dogs love it, but for young Rossi its his paradise !
Right and left - there is always something to watch for :)
Orrine and our two Golden Oldies - Cherie and Dixie
must wait for Rossi almost at each turn, until his nose allows him to follow us at last ! ....
... and then he comes runnig at full speed ! :)
Rossi - our handsome boy
In the white blinding snow, all happy just before getting into the car to get back home and rest.

One of Orrine's favorite pass time at home is watching TV !
Animal channels are very welcome and usually watched from the sofa -
but being the ball girl she is - the best fun is watching football really closely !
" Come on! Come on ! Do something with the ball ! "
" Oh good, at last ! - and there it goes soooo high up ! Lovely ! I wish I could run after it myself ! "

I am going to catch it no problem !
What a fun ! :)

WELCOME to our cottage
So much new, Rossi did not know what to do first !
Our Golden Oldies, Dixie and Cherie knew the place well
from before, so they tried out at once their favorite armchair
brought long ago from Thailand
All in all, Cherie thinks its her armchair
since she was a puppy 12 years ago ......
.... and she makes sure everyone understands her point of view !
.... she also likes this place
and that as well ! :))
Cherie - the treasure
with a lovely view at the lake
and on the left side the Cherie's famous armchair
real old cubboard for dishes
with bed fortunately long enough for all four .....

some wall decorations
and a place to read for Carolina
or what ever to do for Rossi ....

born around the cottage, they also claim their teritory
swiming around lots of water- lillies
oh well, at least something new to watch .... cute duckies after all !
" And what are you all the time staring at, you silly dogs ?
I could easily be the Best Of Duck Breed ! "
never mind the ducks - who is coming over there ??
" I am not quite sure, must have a better look ! "
" Hooray - visitors ! I can pester Mirka for a change :)) "
Welcome to our cottage, would you have cookies ?
