Our weather is rather spectacular these days, and it is going on for weeks and weeks. In fact, it is so warm and dry that some major rivers, needed for the salmon spawn, have dried up. It is hard not to enjoy the sunshine, though, knowing the gray skies will close in at some point and will not lift till April.
We took the dogs for a swim this aft, to their delight.
Jasmine is super-competitive. Stick or kong thrown, she will drown her brother, in her quest to claim it. If Lukey (occasionally) gets it first, she glides up to him like a crocodile,
shoves her snout along the stick right up against his muzzle, and they get
stuck, until Lukey gives up.
Then they come ashore, and
wait again, till Lukey gives up :) He is the sweet-natured guy on the left.
My Jasmine is the obsessive-compulsive crocodile.
Young Blakey prefers to chase his own, smaller stick.
Lori's attempts to get certain dogs to stay still long enough for a photo.
It's exactly like taking photos of small squirmy children -
it's a crap-shoot. (Almost literally,
come to think of it!)
Moment of reverie.....the blue water.....
the blue, blue hills.
Noey, our elder-dog, playing it cool.
