lazy day

It seems that I took no more pictures of the dogs until 4 March 2006 when I made up for my neglect by taking fourteen. This is Bella in typical daytime pose - crashed out on the gravel in the sun.

Bella's coat was thick and black on top and we were always amazed at her capacity to soak up the sun. At this time of year it was still pleasant, but even in the height of the summer with temperatures in the high 30's C she would sprawl in the sun, often on the hot tiles of our yard, until her fur was almost too hot to touch.

I came to recognise this look over the years - a kind of bemused resignation. She never did like having her picture taken, or so it seemed.
