Swimming Bulldog

Can you touch your tongue to your nose?

I took the a vacation day from work today, and took the pups out to Shadow Cliffs for some fun in the water. Its about 90F here, so any outside fun needs to be near the water for the bulldog. This is one of my favorite places to go, and its been a little while since I've been here (all those links are previous entries about Shadow Cliffs). There are a few changes, a new bench, a tree is gone, the water is higher, but its still got a great little beach for the dogs to access the water. Roland pretty much ignored the water when we went to the beach, but not here. Here he swam!

He was a little hesitant at first.

But then he got the hang of it.

Here's a little video of when the two first got in the water.

And Rollie made some friends.

He following Ayla around with her ball.

He played with sticks.

Ayla says hi!

He rested a bit too.

And then dove right back in.

Ayla bobbed for some broken rubber balls that had sunk. She loves this game, but usually when the balls are still floating.

Then Roland started really getting tired. After all, this is usually nap time for him.

Ayla was suddenly very alert.

But she's no retriever, so watching is all she did.

I'm not quite ready to say goodbye to summer, and its just now really starting to feel warm like it should be. But happy Labor Day nonetheless!
