Black Dog Sunday

Our black dog, R, loves the water. He's taught his sister to love it almost as much as he does.
All eyes on the person holding the ball

He hurls himself into the water at top speed to win every race to the ball.

Then he returns with the ball...

Gallops a nice distance from us on the tundra...


And shakes! He's the first dog I've known who doesn't strongly prefer to shake when right next to a person, and I appreciate it.
I wish we had a pond by our house so that he and Shyla could play in the water every day.

  5. I love how lean and strong your dogs are. I see so many labs that are a little (or more than a little!) pudgy. :)

  8. R just exudes happiness and joy - he sure loves the water! Maybe you need to install a fresh water pool:)

  13. Water therapy, the best. Maybe you and runner can build a pond, just a thought for next summer!! Lovely settings for the shake- the-water-off routine.
