Late this afternoon we took the dogs down to the dyke. There was a bit of an ulterior motive.
Luna was pretty grungy. Her tail and feathers were full of mud and grit, and since she really hates that long hair to be brushed, well we'd just get her to swim.
Makes sense doesn't it. Easier for us, less stressful for the dogs and we all get exercise in the process. Bathing Luna this time of the year would be a waste of time and effort. The next run through the bush would make her filthy again.
Don't all dog owners take their dogs to a freezing cold creek when they get dirty?
The dogs didn't care.
The sun had been out earlier, after it had poured rain in the morning, but by the time we made it to the dyke it had clouded over again.
It did look pretty though when the far hillside got lit up by the setting sun.
Some Canada Geese flew over
And then there were these two ducks. I've never seen them before. I'm guessing they were a pair
(sorry for the lousy photos)
They have bright red bills and legs.
I did some Googling but wasn't able to figure out what they were.
