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.
