Sink or Swim

Ok... let me explain.

Hubby and Son have taken over the computer for a Very Important Project (hmmm...) leaving me barely enough time to process and post to Flickr.

The fact that most of last week was blazing hot didn't help.

That said, here's a quick peak back in time...


Saving the Cookie 25/52
Mr. Zachary

This didn't turn out as planned.

I assumed this would be a "Henry Shot" - as the pup is normally a total slob when he drinks.

I drop a cookie in the bowl, he goes snorkeling for it, water goes everywhere, ta-da!

And that's exactly what happened.

The floor was a disaster by the time he was done.

The Titanic probably sank in less water.

Alas, the Photographer was stupid and wasn't paying attention to her flash, which - due to dying batteries - wasn't really flashing.


Batter up!

Zachary was now on deck.

Mr. Prissy Drinker himself.

The dog who acts like he's going to melt if so much as a drop of moisture gets on his muzzle.

The dog who stared at the Cookie I'd just dropped in the bowl and then patiently waited for me to fish it out for him.

Yeah, that Zachary.

Only I didn't go fishing, I just sat there pointing to the increasingly soggy Cookie, giving him my cheeriest "Find it!" cue.

He looked at me like I was nuts.

Zachary: "The Cookie is right there, Mom. Drowning."

Me: "Save it!"

Zachary: "I'll get wet."

Me: "You'll get a Cookie."

Thankfully, Zachary found his inner life-guard and I got my shot.

I have no idea why Henry is licking his lips. Perhaps Zachary should be worried.


Movie Time
The Movie Reviewer and The Pup

What better way to spend a hot afternoon than watching a good movie in a nice cool theater?

As Zachary pens movie reviews for the local paper, it was only natural for Henry to tag along for...

... Day (June 23).

Gee, I sure hope the movie was rated P (for Puppy).

Dog Noir
Mr. Zachary

The boys retreat to the hardwood floor and stone tiles when the temps rise in the house.

At 78F, inside the house is a...

The line of dogs extends into the distance and disappears...

(Forecast is for temps to drop into the 90's this weekend and possibly back into the 80's next week. Pretty sure the boys have paws crossed on that.)

Alas, being late in the day, the color came out a bit...

Daily Dog Challenge 2058. "Flat"

I believe that's Mt. Henry in the distance, with the foothills in the mid-range dropping down to the headlands to the left.

(The high was 103F outside, 80F inside, and the Models weren't budging.)

Looks like it's time to have Henry's lower belly shaved again at the day spa.

He had a rather bad bout of Hot Spot down there last year, and we're hoping that having less fluff during the summer heat will keep his skin drier and healthier.

Thankfully, unless he's splayed out like this, you'll never know.

Zachary has far less fur there naturally without being shaved at all.

Happy Henry

Still to hot.

The story that accompanies the water photos is funny. The other day we saw a puppy bobbing for ice cubes.
The lighting in the first movie scene is very ice.
Sleepy Henry is precious.
