The early November sunshine cast golden rays that flooded the room, showing every bit of dust on every surface.
Annie smiled to herself and grabbed the lead.
"Come on, Lady."
Lady scampered to her side, tail wagging.
They headed off, breathing in the wonderful crispness of the air and spent an hour together in the glorious morning sun.
As they neared home the sky turned grey and clouded over.
Once inside, Annie looked again around the room ... the dust was gone.
She bent down to give Lady a stroke, and smiled.
"A good walk sorts everything out, doesn't it, girl."
