Dog Days of Summer

I always say it's a 3-ring circus around here and now we have the actual rings to prove it!  Anyway. . . . . when it's this hot (108) there is only one thing for a pup to do and that's get wet.  And why not?  Gracie has a kiddie pool but sometimes we just turn on the sprinklers and let her cool down that way. 

We puppy-sat Luke so his family could take a little vacation with the kids this last week.  One day we dressed them up (that's what dog owners without any kids at home do) and took them to Petsmart for new toys.  Lot's of fun taking two Goldens to the pet store!  They picked out two matching (of course) tires with attached ropes.

And here she is with the tire.  Happy and wet but missing Luke!


  1. I just love it when you post pictures of Gracie and Luke! They are beautiful pups and it's been a joy to watch them grow.

  2. Diane - they are just precious!!

  3. Awwww....wait till Ellie sees these pictures! She's constantly wanting to take Red and Chatty to PetSmart...LOL!

  4. I like the idea of running around in the sprinklers all day. I think Gracie's got it made! :)

  5. Aww there's nothing better than the smell of wet doggie fur! LOL Such cute pictures! I think goldens get more attention anywhere they go, they are so beautiful.

  6. After reading your article I was amazed. I know that you explain it very well. And I hope that other readers will also experience how I feel after reading your article. Stahlwandpool
