Wet dogs and Englishmen (huh?)

Unpublished pictures from the heat wave of 2009. Nostalgic days when my camera was working and producing nice photos. This is Lady doing what I have discovered to be her favorite thing in the whole world. Never would have guessed it from her reaction the first time I took her to Lake Washington. Splashed around like a dork, unable to navigate herself anywhere near a tennis ball. After a dozen trips, she now glides along like a Golden frigate, capturing her ball and everyone else's.

Today, Lady made her first trip to a professional groomer in two and a half years! I did not trust myself to clip her down to showroom quality (I'm a good bather, but lousy barber). I am happy to say she looks magnificent. Not like a hippy dog anymore (Keith will be glad to know this). Pictures as soon as my new camera arrives. An appreciative shout out to an excellent groomer and business owner: Crystal at Dirty Paws pet styling in Lynnwood, WA.





Any guesses?

Swimming pictures will make us all sad that summer is not here anymore. Keep showing the summer stuff, it will help us remember what it was like.
