Hearty Welcomes & Salutations! Originally an action-packed travel blog from a globe-trotting Scotsman, An Ache for the Distance has, over the years, slowed down (I post less often), mellowed out (domestic life has found it's way way on here) and become more of an expat/photo blog. Take a look around, leave a comment and share the love if you like something.

Just Because I'm Hairy, Doesn't Mean I'm Warm

It's that time of year again where doubling up on your underwear becomes a serious consideration as the mercury steadily drops. Maybe you glance enviously at your canine companion's all-season furry attire?  One suit for the whole year, cool in the summer, warm in the winter, or at least in theory.  Our doberman, Sam, became acclimatised to long hot Italian summers and when the temperature begins to dip, he looks for the warmest places possible.  Sometimes in front of the fire, sometimes on the sofa, or usually he just makes his way to Mischa's bed and uses her as a kind of German Shepherd pillow/blanket.  At first she was a little sceptical but over time they seem to have come to a mutually cosy understanding...
