Snow in northern Italy; and reunions in the UK

On our way back to the UK from Greece, we stopped in northern Italy where it was snowing. The dogs absolutely loved it! They ran around in it like small children, weaving their noses through the it as though in search of elves and fairies, and leaping in delight. Given the snow that was blanketing much of the UK when we got back, it was a good opportunity for the dogs to acclimatise!

We received equally warm and sunny greetings from everyone who came to wave pets off on their way. Colonies of cats live all around Athens, some of whom are lucky enough to be fed and cared for by local charities, volunteer groups and kindly individuals. Wonderful smoky-grey puss Perhaps the householder feeds this little group — they certainly look like they know [...]
