Flying Black Dog Sunday

When you get our Black Dog around water, he emits puppy-like high pitched barks, he trembles with excitement, and he launches himself into the air at the sight of any objects thrown into the water.

After all these years, he is still an extraordinary leaper.

Yes, this next photo is still from the same leap. That boy gets serious hang time!

His sister photo bombed in the next photo as R was completely focused on a tennis ball that had just landed in the water.
One of my favorite things about summer and fall is being able to take the Labraduo swimming. I think that I can confidently say that they love it too!


  1. my face is hurting from smiling to long... R is really great at LEAPING. wow! love the photobomber to

  2. Spectacular leaps and spectacular photos, KB! Makes my heart sing to see his athleticism.

  3. Nothing like a lab and water!! Great shots!

  4. R has the best focused eyes ever. I love his look in that last picture. No sister would break his concentration, for sure.

  5. The last photo, such determination, and his ears, I have to smile too. So glad they both love the water and you can be there closer to home, a huge bonus.

  6. OH MY DOGs you LabraDuos have invisible wings to be able to fly like that.
    Bravo Hugs madi your bfff

  7. I love these photos, what great fun and the best of memories too! There's no doubt that the water is part of your boys heart and soul!!

  8. You can really tell how much R loves to leap into the water.

  9. I miss taking dogs swimming! Our Lab mix Maggie absolutely loved swimming, and she was super fast. That was before my days of blogging so I don't have many photos and zero videos of her doing what she loved. I do at least have some of our golden Sheba who was a close second for loving the water. :)

  11. It is easy to tell they both love the water. And R is so athletic. Hard to believe his age!

  12. OMD, that is some SERIOUS aire time dude! I thinks you could do those contests at doggie shows where the doggie leaps after a toy and they see how far they fly! BOL!
