I finally had a moment to download the pictures on my camera and my phone. I didn’t realize it while I was taking them but most of the pictures were of Sadie.
Here she is napping in the sunshine.
I snapped many photos of Sadie running and barking at thunder and this is one of my favorites.
A couple of months ago I bought Sadie a swimming pool. For a few weeks she just used it as a giant water bowl. She finally figured out what it is and she loves it.
Sadie loves all water except for water in a bathtub. She’s especially fond of mud puddles. It’s been a rainy summer here and there’s a dirt road on our walking route that has a huge mud puddle. Each time we walk by this puddle Sadie has to take a dip.
First she walks in a circle.
Then she finds the deepest spot in the puddle…
…and enjoys the water.
When she first started doing this I tried to distract her from the puddle because she ends up a muddy mess. I soon gave in because is makes her so darn happy.
We’ve spent some time at our park recently. The dogs enjoyed running through the stream.
And running along the trail.
We were at the park one evening and enjoyed relaxing in the setting sun.
Sadie did a nice job of posing on one of these trips to the park.
Luka thought she was a camera hog so he got in on the action.
I love this picture of Luka.
He’s not looking so photogenic now, though. Shortly after I took the above picture he rolled in horse poop. The only way to remove it was to cut it out. The right side of his mane is now super short so he’s a tad lopsided.
My beautiful environment has also been putting on a show lately.
The sky continues to be a brilliant blue.
The flowers continue to bloom.
One morning last week there was a lenticular cloud over Pikes Peak. I’d never seen one over the Peak before and it looked spectacular.
Finally, we were walking yesterday and a storm moved south of us. The rainbow was gorgeous.
