The most affectionate creature in the world is a wet dog. ~ Ambrose Bierce

Our trip to the park this week can be summed up in one word: hot. We did a little bit of walking through the fields.

Sadie and Luka

Luka dawdled behind me at one point and then raced to catch up.


We spent most of our time in the woods by the stream.


The dogs chased each other.

And ran around by themselves, too.



Luka explored the rocks.

And they both enjoyed cooling off in the water.

Sadie and Luka

Sadie was soaked (and kept wanting to snuggle me so I was soaked, too).


She wanted to keep playing, but she was very tired.


She dug a hole in the dirt and rested.


Luka rested in the shade, too.


We had a lot of fun and the heat was exhausting. After we arrived home we all fell asleep. (Sadie got a head start: she slept the entire drive home.)

Finally, there are new socks on the needles.

    One of the things I’ve enjoyed about blogs is seeing how different everyone’s habitat is. Your woods are very different from the woods here. It gives me a better sense of how the country is different from one end to the other. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Aw. Yours look like the luckiest dogs on earth! What fun they are having. I wish Jingle could sometimes have such freedom.

  3. Well, this is the reason I have cats, not dogs: muddy paws!
    What fun they have, tho’…

    And your socks are gorgeous!

    Always so humourous to see your dogs enjoying themselves on their weekend outings. Too cute. Luka is huge! Sadie is adorable.

  5. Lovely, lovely. . . how wonderful that they have a canine friend to romp with. There is something so wonderful about big dogs. I still miss my big Akita every day.

  6. Great photos! Especially the rolling one ๐Ÿ˜€
