Two Crazy Dogs in a Garden



This is my idea of "gardening" mid-summer.


To insure a dog-gone good time on a really hot day,  I recommend that you mope about the kitchen until your owner feels so sorry for you that she drags out the sprinkler.


Here's how my favourite sprinkler game works.


First, you get into the optimal position.


Then you wait. 


The anticipation may be killing you, but at least you know what's coming.


I find that barking profusely always makes the sprinkler move a little faster.


Yippee ki-yay!



Sometimes others may try to cut in on your act.


Just ignore them!



Shake and get right back into position.


Man this feels refreshing!


I am off for 7 days to visit my family in Nova Scotia.
Have a wonderful week!

  5. They look like they had a ball! I don't think my dogs would play in the sprinkler even if they are hot. I hope you ran through the sprinkler with them! Have a wonderful trip Jennifer~!

  10. They sure look like they're having a grand time. It almost makes you wonder how much water actually reached the ground, or if most of it stayed on the pups!

    Have a terrific trip and enjoy the family and Nova Scotia.

  18. I just love it, and what about the cat sitting on the bench looking to get in on the act, but then again, methinks it looks very stationary.

  19. Loved this post! I can't drag my dogs into the sprinkler, they don't know what they are missing. They seem to hate water on their ears.

  22. The way our summer is going I'd be elbowing your dogs aside so I could get in that sprinkler to cool off! Your dogs are positively grinning!!
