Some water fun

 It was a nice day today, clear but cooler than the past week has been, so I took a bike ride down to the park with the dogs. They were hot by the time we got down there, so we spent some time down near the river to let them cool off.

The PhoDOGraphy book I read yesterday was say off center portraits, don't need the whole dog in them, etc, etc, so here are two "off center, partial dog" shots.

Then I got this pretty neat one of Koira swimming. She loves swimming, and once she got in, she just swam in circles and circles and some more circles while we sat on the dock.

She loves the water so much, I sometimes feel like I should buy a pool for the backyard just to make her happy.

And of course, the ever elegant shaking off picture.
Pallo is a total wuss about water. He will wade up to his belly, and occasionally will go in after a thrown ball or stick (if Koira hasn't gotten there first). Jumping off the dock was not even a thought in his tiny little brain today though, and he let Koira have all the water fun.


  1. #1- I love the off center Pallo pic, it's almost like he tried to stick his head in at the last second.

    #2- THANK YOU! for putting the chip in button on your blog! Sinatra is home with me and doing well, but the only vet we've found who will neuter him or even examine him quoted us $400-$600 for everything. Yikes!

  2. Looks like a nice place for a swim :-)

  3. Loving that shaking-off Koira photo! Just too good!

  4. Love the shaking picture...too funny!

  5. You got some fabulous images in the water... and the shake! I love it.

  6. Wonderful photos of koira swimming. She sure does love it. How about a kiddie pool for her? Not the same as swimming, I know. The shake photo is a classic!

  7. Your pets are so beautiful and look like they absolutely love the water!
