This past weekend was hot, and it's supposed to get even hotter during the week. Every time we went outside, the pups would run around, and hide in the shade. We've got lots of floating toys for them, and they love them all. On Saturday we pushed them in at the stairs, where they so bravely grabbed whatever washed up near the edge.
This Kong Wubba is Denny's favorite, and Happy steals it away from him as often as possible.
They just go in as far as the first two steps. Happy likes the rubber bones.
Denny was patiently waiting for the Wubba to come close enough so he could grab it. At first he barked at it, when he noticed that it came his way.
Just getting his feet wet to cool off, and also waiting for Happy, because:
Happy had his first swim by himself! He went in after the rubber bone all by himself. He still uses only the stairs, and does not jump in from the sides, but that's fine. He loves swimming, and now goes in every time we are outside. Yeah! But we have to get Denny out of the way, or he wont come out, because the little devil barks, and bites him, making it hard and painful to get out of the pool. First time we noticed what was going on, Happy just turned around and did another lap. Good thing that they are never outside by themselves.
Denny does not go in on his own yet, but enjoys the short, forced swim, and especially the cooling off part. Every time after they were in the pool, they run around like crazies. It's fun to watch.
I've also cast on for a new pair of socks. This is Beaded Lattice socks from the book Sock Club. I'm not using beads though. The yarn is Wandering Cat Yarns in the colorway Campfire. Lovely.
