Staying Cool

The heat has been unbearable lately with temperatures climbing into the 100's. Walks now take place after dark and backyard time is a quick trip to take care of business and then everyone runs back into the air conditioning. In an attempt to bring some of the fun back into our outdoor time we decided to go out and get the pups a kiddie pool (or should I say puppy pool?). While I was super excited about our new addition to the outdoor decor some of us took some serious convincing.

Here I am trying to get Dottie to see that I am not dragging her to a watery grave

After some treats and encouragement she started feeling a bit more comfortable

 Here she is with Alven enjoying themselves

Alven did not need any kind of convincing

  1. Alven has the RIGHT idea. When it's hot, water is our friend. :)

  3. I notice that there aren't any pictures of old grumpers (aka, Flash) in the puppy pool. I bet he is just out of camara range giving you an evil look, or otherwise inside on the couch giving you an evil look :)
