our graveyard walk

Both Ludo and Ricky have recently posted photos of their walks in a graveyard, so I thought I'd post some from our daily walk. We always walk in the cemetery. Usually, we share the cemetery with some cool wildlife, like turkeys and deer, but we didn't see any this time. They must be camera shy.

The dogs are wearing their boots, to protect their paws from the salt on the roads. Oreo's paws are very sensitive to the salt.

Oreo leads the way.

Pretty evergreens, help keep the snow from making it to the ground,

so Oreo is able to locate some grass!
Misty is so upset that her red boots don't match her purple harness. "So embarrassing."

It is hard to get much walking done, when there are so many good things to smell.

What a beautiful place - especially with the snow!

How do the harnesses work for Misty and Oreo? Do they keep them from pulling?

Sara said...

No, the harnesses don't help with the pulling, but Misty is an escape magician with various collars. If she gets spooked by a jogger coming up behind us, I have been left holding a leash and collar - with no dog attached. She can wiggle her way right out - even of some harnesses.

That is why I use the harness!

Wow! Pretty walk! And to think shy demure little Misty is a Houdini!

Looks like a good place to walk. I saw and read where one of the birder bloggers sees Canada geese in a cemetary and I believe from what she says she has bird feeders there also as she has posted some beautiful birds and has mentioned the feeders there she went to check on.
Your pictures are great as usual. Helen

You guys must be braved to walk on the graveyard! I must admit it does look beautiful but I think I will be too scared!!

Boohoo :( There isn't a cemetary anywhere close to us so we're feeling left out...
