Toby Beats the Heat/Monday Mischief?

Like most of the country, we are sweltering here in Virginia. Toby loves car rides and can't understand why we don't take him to the store with us anymore - but even a few minutes waiting in the car could be deadly. We set a new record high temp. yesterday. 

Toby got his walk early today. We usually walk for a couple of miles. Before we left I finished my coffee while checking on my blog list, and got a great Daily Dog Challenge over at BZ Training. "Take a photo of your dog that makes you happy!" Inspired, I grabbed the point-and-shoot and sneakers while Toby barked and spun in circles with excitement. (btw, how do dogs always know when you're about to take them for a walk?)
"Dont'cha want to try this too?"

Since the earliest puppy days Toby has loved to bite at lawn sprinklers. We don't have ours working but lots of neighbors do, and 6:30 AM is prime time for them to be running. It makes me giggle every time!
So there were LOTS of giggles during the photo ops on our walk today!



A drink and tooth cleaning too!

I just have to smile at this one.

"Wait - there's another sprinkler!"

  3. The sprinkler is like a water pick :)Maybe it should become a daily routine.
