Non-controllable variables.

After four days of blustery Bay of Biscay storms it is brighter and cheerier this morning. 

I fear Sophie may be putting on weight again.

There is a certain ' solidity' to her haunches.

Where the weight gain is coming from is a mystery. Her kibble intake remains the same as does her intake of carrots as treats. The only non-controllable variable are  'delectables' she finds along the grass verges on our walks. Can badger poo be fattening ?

In the fancy greengrocer they've taken to laying out the grapes on straw. The bunches are also socially distanced. Considering everything else is just piled up willy nilly on the shelves this attention to grapes is noteworthy.

That first shot today looks like a watercolor painting - beautiful sky. We are having trouble with Cherry's weight as well. We've cut way back on her kibble, but she diligently creates new routines to cadge snacks throughout the day so I'm not sure the "diet" is having much impact.

I hope you don't mind, but I have a link for you today. I really enjoyed your posts with the old photos of Tokyo and then the movie of the suspended train, so I naturally thought of your when I saw this snowball fight from 1896 - in France, no less! https://twitter.com/right_movies/status/1313033159035023360

PONette weight gain seems to be a universal problem ! Thanks for the fun link !

Lisa, thanks. The snowball fight is amazing. Of course, I identified with the poor cyclist!
Bertie believes there are no calories in badger poo, thus it should be encouraged as a treat for the chunkier dog.
Cheers, Gail.

Sophie welcomes Berties insight and will carry on with her badger poo 'snacking'.

Inca is a bit miffed that we don't have badger poo here - or at least she hasn't found any. Just as well, because she, too has put on a little weight and blames it on lockdown. I'll have to stop her watching the news!
