A Thought from Pup Pup


The Lower Pond

The dogs were thrilled to go to the lower pond!

We rarely play there

because it's down a big hill

and involves bushwacking through prickerbushes

(which the dogs think is a blast).

It's like a different world down there,

with dead trees all over the place

that make geese like these invisible to the dogs.
(Click on the photo to make it bigger if you can't see them either :-)

The dogs are mesmerized by all the colorful floating things.

Jumpy walks around in the water,

and as Pup Pup walks,

she samples the menu.


Pash mostly cares for her ball on the shore,

while Hoppy, as always, hunts frogs.

This time, toward the end of our visit to the lower pond,

he even got lucky!


What's Up?

When the dogs went out this afternoon,

something caught Suzie's attention right away.

She started looking...

and quickly honed in

on this tree.

It only took a minute to convince Hero

that something was up there.

Something cool!

I figured it was a squirrel.

The rest of the gang

soon followed.

But nothing happened

so something had to be done.
Suzie stepped away for a minute

to get a different perspective on the problem.

Jumpy stood watch

as Suz studied the situation.

She got an idea

and put it into action!

Sure enough!

Someone came out of the tree

and flew away overhead.


No Wings on these Guests!

The big dogs get bored

with the tadpoles and frogs, so

it thrills them when they find this guy!

You probably can't tell his size in photos,

but he is between 3.5 and 4 feet long!

He has fake teeth painted on his face...real big!

His head is real tiny,

compared to his fat body!
He is fast, though,

especially when he slides into the water.

This guy can really swim!

The dogs don't have a chance....

but he leaves a GREAT musky smell behind for them,

and babies to find under stones all around the lake!

What more could a dog ask?
