Everyone else will be posting their photos and videos of the snow, so I thought I’d do the same.

Towards the end you can see how snowballs form on Bassam’s legs and feet as she wanders through the snow. It is a surprise, then, to learn that dogs have bigger carbon footprints than SUVs (or 4X4s for the British). Bigger snow footprints perhaps, but Bassam never picks up carbon!

Most of the video was on the hillside just beside Adam’s park in High Wycombe.

  1. As usual, I click through to check sources, and find that your Godspace friends have made a mistake (or was it on purpose?). The research & NZ article are about ‘eco-footprint’ (how much land could theoretically support the activity), not ‘carbon footprint’ (how much CO2 is produced by the activity). Very different; very few SUVs are driven on fuel produced by the land…

    Sorry to nit-pick, but I often wonder what people’s motives are when sharing global warming related stories!

    I’ve posted this here, because here I’m known (a bit); I’ll leave it up to you whether to pass this on to Christine Sine (Godspace).

    Enjoyed the video though!

    1. Yes, I noticed that too (though Christine did say Eco-footprint in her title). However, I went with ‘carbon’ rather than ‘eco’ because it made for (in my mind) a funnier story – comparing Bassam picking up carbon and snow on her feet. Sometimes a silly joke is just that, a silly joke. Not everything is meant to be significant!
