Well, Deb and I took all of our spoos out to a community park area in Bennington, VT last week. It was a gorgeous day with the temps in the upper 60's and sunny. The dogs had a BLAST, as always, and so did we (as always...lol). Nothing more enjoyable than watching our guys have a great time and taking pics of them doing so!

So, I hope you all bear with me (and Deb) as we took tons of pics so it will be hard not to overload you all a bit!!!!

Lots of YEEHAW by the spoos! Running and playing, it was a beautiful area (regretfully we found out later that our dogs picked up some ticks..... seems like this year is going to be a bad one for them so we are going to have to be vigilant).

and back: (this went on a LOT...lol)

WHOA, we found WATER!!! (Alfie's first time at water and he went right in! good boy!)



"Come on, Billy, hurry up! It's WATER!" (I'll let Deb show you Billy's version of crossing water...lol)


Ok Chantel, what do you see down there??? LOL... this girl LOVES water, she even jumps into the tub when I take a shower and sometimes jumps in when I am in the bathroom thinking I will give her a bath...lol)

This is Chantel AFTER she takes her head out of the water (btw, she did this multiple times, don't know what she was looking for under there..lol... unless it was to catch a tadpole)




Ok, how about a run through, that's fun too!

Chantel deciding her next move!


"Grace, do I have any pieces of stick in my teeth? I don't want to look dumb!"


"Out of the way, COMIN' THROUGH!"

Ok, on our walk through, we came to this shell of an old home for workers. We never pass up an opportunity for a great photo of our dogs, so here is Deb getting Taffy to put her feet up and stay...LOL.

"Taffy, put your feet up here!"


"Am I doing it right, mom?".... "Put your feet here, ok?"


"Taffy, look out, not at me!" (Deb doing the magic trick, each hand on opposite sides...lol) Ohhh, and Alfie, don't hog Taffy's pic!

"Like this mom??" PHEW, got it! What a beautiful and sweet girl!



"Hey, Alfie, she's doing it again! How does she breath under there?"


A nice run after getting all wet! Lovely view too! Oh, well, almost everyone got wet. Billy???

Well, Deb has some to add and I have more.... yep, no kidding...lol. Let me know if you are overwhelmed and I won't put them on! But time to close down at work here and go home! Hope you all enjoyed mine so far... we sure enjoyed the day! (Sans the ticks, that is!)

Fantastic photos! I especially love the one in your first post where all the multi colours are running back in a straight line.

Chantel makes me laugh, there are many PWD owners who would love for their dog to do that as it's an exercise in the Apprentice level of water trials. You should get her retrieving something! You can just fill a wiffle ball with rocks and get it to sink and her to retrieve it. Alternatively you can use a 3 prong toy. Then she'll have 1 of the 5 tasks at that level down! It's called the underwater retrieve appropriately enough. :)

Billy does play!! He just doesn't have a love for water...what can I say..LOL



And, he can play tag! YES, he was in serious need of a trimming! Got one the next day.



Oh, boy! Wonder what they are plotting now!



Dianne in the lead.

Once again, unbelievably gorgeous photos! That Chantal is a hoot. She has no idea she is a show dog! I am so happy to see you letting you Spoos, show coat or not, just be dogs.

The photo of the Spoo conflab is a riot. It does look like the little dickens are cooking something up!

Thank you for sharing. I want to move in with you guys!
