About this time last year, we had snow and I managed to photograph a few dogs on the Common and over at the bomb crater where loads of people were sledging.
One of the dogs I photographed last year was Nelson the Pointer and he was the first dog I came across again yesterday. He’s such a handsome chap and I love his black coat with grey flecks down the front.

Leya is a Spanish Water Dog and I always like seeing breeds that don’t crop up that often. This is a breed of dog developed by shepherds in Spain as a multi-purpose herder. They’re sometimes used as a gundog, as well as an assistant to fishermen.

Others photographed were Hattie, the Border Collie, an unknown Weimeraner and of course a few shots of my Barney who raced around on the slopes dodging the sledgers.
