Another Nice Weekend

On Saturday we took advantage of another good weather weekend and headed out with the girls to a dog run in Chiba that we went to a few times in summer. The grass wasn't as green due to the winter but all three dog runs were opened into one big run so Jazz and Dixie could chase each other up and down the hills and also play with a few other dogs that were there. Today was another nice day so we went to a nearby park with dog run. It was nicer to walk around in the park in the sun than play in the muddy dog run. Its great being able to get out and about and make the most of these cool sunny days.

Unusual Weather and Victorian Bushfires

Today with a forcast top of 21 degrees C we decided to take the girls to Dog Field dog run. February is supposed to be the coldest month here in Japan and we have been having max's of 9 or 10 but this weekend we have unually warm weather both today and tomorrow before returning to 9 again on Monday. Anyway we are making to most of this warm spell to spend a lot of time outside with Jazz and Dixie. They had the sole use of the dog run today until 2 golden retrievers arrived. Mt Fuji looked particularlly beautiful today covered with lots of snow and no clouds arround.
On a different and more serious note we have been reading our pal Opy's blog and keeping an eye on the news of the continuing bushfires in Victoria, Australia. Many humans and animals, both domestic and wild have been lost and injured in these horrific fires. The Healesville Sanctuary's Australian Wildlife Health Centre has been taking in and caring for injured wildlife. Zoos Victoria has set up the '2009 Bushfire Appeal' to collect donations.

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hopes are that when the ribbon of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers.
A lot of our friends have this award so we'd like to pass it on to those who don't.
