Well its just too hot here for man or beast (especially the big hairy ones) so today I piled the 4 dogs into the GrandPrix ( that was a task in a half let me tell you) and drove up to camp. Since no one is around this weekend, I figured this would be the perfect opportunity for Karma to have her formal introduction to our summer home
They say TM's dont swim and are not big on water... well that was true for Karma for a whopping 3 minutes. Once she figured out that the other dogs were playing in the giant water bowl she went right in.

its always best to hop around in there a little first to prepare for the temperature changes. Karma spent most of the afternoon doing... THIS

Bailey doing what he loves... even though last summer I think was his first time swimming, just goes to show you that when something is bred in... its in there.

Its awfully fun to just stand around and let the others work for the stick... when they come back with it, just take it from them!

These two get along best when swimming, the rest of the time Bailey is picking on Meiko ( not as bad as before, but still happens)

Karma has grown into a beautiful lady so quickly!! What a character! :lovestruck:

They all look like they enjoyed their day at the beach immensely. :D Were they all too tired to bark at the moose?

They didnt even notice the moose :laughing: they noticed the 3 dogs running at large down the roads at camp though:wall: we had to slow down to an idle crawl because they were weaving infront of the vehicles and chasing us as well...

It was a loud fit in the car when the dogs all noticed these other dogs let me tell you.

Oh Chico2... we don't do that :yuck: After a good day at camp like that we sit up on the hill for some nice brushing and gentle fetching to dry off before getting back in the car;)
This particular time we all went up to Puppy mans grave, I planted a bit of flowers and Meiko trimmed some trees. (not the ones we would have liked him to trim... but its what he thought was best for Puppy Man I guess)
