Summer Daze

Here are Buddy, Reggie & Bingo:

Reggie says, "Hullo."

He is shedding like an alpaca in these photos. 

I brushed him a coupla days ago, but he's back in Shedville.

Thru the kitchen window:

Buddy in Frog Pose:

I got the boys a new toy:

It has several squeakers and crinkley-sounding ears:

Oh look!  Here's Hannah for a day vizzie:

She says, "Let's play!"

"No," says Buddy.

It has been so HOT, so I filled the pool:

Hannah's the only one who will get in because around these parts, it's know as the BATH POOL.

Meanwhile, here's Buddy:

I thought it would be fun to put some treats in a bowl and float it in the water; see who would come try to get it:

 Who else?!

But watch what he does . . .

Lifts the bowl out of the pool . . . 

and dumps the treats in the grass . . . 

as he thinks he's taking it to a "safe" spot.

 Hannah sees the bowl:

Buddy follows the trail back to the treat spill at the pool:

And Hannah makes off with the bowl!

And she shreds it:

Here's Bingo:

Realizing that SOMETHING food-related has gone on, but not quite sure what!

In the Morning

I awoke to this fine orb weaver web:

The very considerate spider designed it to the side of the doorway so I wouldn't face-plant her web. When I first moved in five years ago, I walked through a spider web in the doorway three days in a row. On the fourth day, the web was over to the side. I guess all subsequent spider residents have gotten the memo. What's interesting about that first spider was that after that first week, she retreated to a corner of the doorway and wove herself into a very tight hammock-like structure. Two days later, Hurricane Isabela came roaring through!  Nature knows. 

Here's Buddy enjoying a post-breakfast snooze with a few toys:

And We're Back . . .

I'm getting back into a groooove with things. I don't know if I'll ever catch up with all the photos I've taken these past few months!  But here are some recent ones.

Hannah Vizzie

I had Hannah Banana, the Golden Retriever for a few days last month. Here she is in the yard with Buddy:
Buddy, mid-flap of ears.
 Hannah found an old yogurt container under the deck:
Buddy with tail at half-mast.
 Hannah settles in to overlook her domain:

It only took a year, but finally! Reggie and Hannah made friends. Here's Reggie:

And Back to Hannah:

Full retriever form!

In the meantime:

Here's Reggie again with Bingo in the background:

Happy boy.  :-)

And Hannah, happy girl.  :-)

Buddy is so funny . . . 

. . . he found a little bit of something . . . 

. . . and brings it onto the dog bed.

Happy boy.  :-)

Ro came for a vizzie. Look how tall he's getting!

Playing with a stick. As you do.

Buddy perusing the perimeter. 

And that's all for now!
