Contented, happy dogs.

Nothing my dogs love more than going for a walk, and swimming in the three different ponds on our route.

Sissy always charges the water as if it might escape before she gets in. In the process she always gets water in her ears. Sometimes she gets in too deep and does her floating brick impersonation with just her tail sticking out like a periscope. Either way, back home Dad has to massage the water out of the convoluted Daschhund ear channels, while she lies on her side groaning with doggy pleasure.

Lady is a born water dog, never misses a chance for a swim with at least four dips on a typical afternoon walk. Winter water temperatures of 7 or 8 degrees Celsius are just as good as summer temperatures of 24 degrees Celsius.

The look seems to say, "Not another photo!"

Yay! There's nothing like seeing our friends and companions fun free, their spirit worn on the outside.

Aw, how this post makes me miss my dogs back home even more. Such a small pleasure for the dogs, a walk and like yours, ours get to swim in the golf dam too. Many months before we see them again.

Nothing I love more than happy dogs, Phillip, and I can see why your photos make Jo miss her dogs.
All the best from Alberta, where the water is frozen and the air, with the windchill, feels like -32C but is actually only -22C.
