Thematic Photographic 403 - Take a walk

Well Carmi picked quite the theme for us this week!  Out I went to walk Max the schnauzer this morning only to find all sidewalks iced over.  I tried to walk along the side of the sidewalks on the grass, also iced over.  Max would not walk.  Each step he took he slid!  So back inside we went, I put on my hubby's boots with cleats and down to the garage we went.  After an energetic walk in the indoor garage he was ready to do his business.  Out we went, walking gingerly, he did his business and back in we went!  That was the extent of our walk this morning!

In normal winter weather, especially when it is -20 celsius and -30 with the wind factor, getting ready to go out for a walk takes a lot of time, boots, sweater, scarf, hat, mittens, coat and then there is the dog to dress!  Doesn't look too happy does he.

I much prefer walking in good weather, like in Florida by the beach!

  1. I always enjoy a walk too, although much better in the warmer dryer weather. Even though a good cold brisk walk can be thrilling too. What a cute little coat to keep your pup warm too, what a cute dog you have!

  2. Michèle, ice can be treacherous. Wise choice to stay inside. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love Max's red coat! I get grumpy when I can't go for a walk - and it's raining today, so...

  4. I'm wondering where you are located to get weather like this. My walks always result in me meeting dogs - taking a walk,

  5. I must confess the weather looks better in the last one! And the dog looks happier!
