A few days later than it should have been (it’s been “one of those weeks” Mum says) but I wanted to share my January here (you can also see more photos on the accompanying Steller story). It’s been a mixed month with far too many cold days for my liking, and too much rain, and sleet – think frozen paws and a wet belly – and with night time starting in the middle of the afternoon. January was one long snugglethon, basically – can you blame me? – with a few freezing cold walks thrown in. But already February is feeling better. Can you sense that too? It’s a little lighter, a little brighter. The days are stretching ever so slightly. The Parents are already planning a few trips where I can go exploring and have longer runs. So goodbye January and hello to the very, very first signs of spring.
