Dog walk @ Mayesbrook Park

Took Coco for a walk around Mayesbrook Park this morning. Another glorious sunny day with frost still on the ground.

The nictitating membrane (from Latin nictare, to blink) is a transparent or translucent third eyelid present in some animals that can be drawn across the eye for protection and to moisten it while maintaining visibility. Some reptiles, birds, and sharks have full nictitating membranes; in many mammals, a small, vestigial portion of the membrane remains in the corner of the eye.
