Smart Dog. . . Not so Smart Dog. . .

Saturday, September 25, 2010

Please ignore the fact that my yard desperately needs mowing.  First, it's too darned hot here right now, and second, I'd rather take the time to play with the dogs and walk with them than to terrorize them with the mower.  It will get done.  Besides, they like the long grass to play in.  My husband says Penny looks like an Ewok running in the grass.

Anyway, this cracked me up when I saw these two napping outside.  Penny is like me.  She doesn't like being in the sun.  Silly Ninja, on the other hand, will lay out in the sun until he comes running inside and nearly burns my hands with his blazing black coat.

Goodness, it was over 100 degrees today!  They did this early this morning, then the afternoon was spent in the air conditioned house with both pups spread out on the cool tile. And I have to admit I did a little napping myself this afternoon in the nice cool house.

Speaking of sleeping (one of my favorite topics!) I bought the pups a huge dog bed last week at Costco and they are so cute curled up together on it together.  It has special foam in it, just like my bed so they can be comfy when they sleep.  :) 

One of my favorite things is to come home to see them running to greet me.  Penny is a "talker."  She grunts and play growls in greeting.  Ninja whines and snorts.  But dogs are always happy to see you, and mine are especially sweet. 

I like water!

If you have water in any form that can be splashed, this pup will find it.  She even splashes in her water bowl!

I don't know if you can see if, but her little chest is all soaked.  I was watering the sprouting pumpkins seeds (we're hoping for Thanksgiving pumpkins) and our trees and she found a little puddle to splash.

Unfortunately, Ninja is terrified of water (go figure) so she splashes and plays and he cries and barks. I'm sure the neighbors love us. :)

She's so smart to go lay in the shade to dry out.  She's got a bit of a cross face in the picture, so unlike her usual adorable doggy grin.  I don't think she liked having her picture taken today.  Maybe I interrupted her nap. . .  She was probably dreaming up more ways to splash about!
