July 2012 photo challenge - Pets keeping cool
Anyone have any ideas for this month's photo challenge?

Have we done "Pets keeping cool", yet? Seems appropriate today. :)

That sounds like a good one for summer (despite it being cloudy and drizzly in Vancouver today).

I like it - Pets keeping cool it is - merging suggestion posts now. Thx!

I'll play, here's Huntley trying desperately to get his friend Buddy to help him out of the pool:

Awesome, way to start it off Huntleysmom! :highfive:

hazelrunpack July 2nd, 2012 12:21 PM

Not sure how cool Huntley felt, but that sure is a great pic!! :D Did Buddy save him in the end, I hope? :eek: :laughing:

Dusty has discovered that water isn't the only way to stay cool...

Then again, if there's no mud handy at the park, one can always just lay down in the water bowl...

Those are great pics! Like Marko said, no problem here in Vancouver staying cool, just get out of bed! We're still raining and very cool, no swimmin yet.

hazelrunpack July 3rd, 2012 11:13 AM

Dusty doesn't look too dusty, Soundy! :laughing: omd, look at that mud! :eek: :laugh:

ownedbycats July 3rd, 2012 11:18 AM

I wonder how the other dogs felt about having Dusty in the water dish? Too cute, he's adorable :lovestruck:

marko July 3rd, 2012 12:10 PM

Lovely pix Soundy! Really like the mud one :D

We were down at Dogwood Park near White Rock on the weekend, they have a "pond" there that right now is a lot of dirty water, and a little mud flat at the bottom end... Dusty wandered into the shallow water over the mud flat and just laid right down. What a lovely mess that was! The weather around here this week, I think it's as much that he just likes laying in the water, moreso than trying to keep cool.

[CENTER][SIZE="5"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][I]Humph...bowl of water or a stream?


Bowl's no fun!


Mollie think's otherwise


This is the closet Mollie or Gryphon come to water. They could use some lessons from Chum CsqU4r3d! :laughing:

While this is a "Golden" oldie, it's one of my all time favorite pictures. :angel2:

Love how the water falls off Chum's head c-squared!

Lovely set D-O-G!

hazelrunpack July 4th, 2012 08:42 AM

We'll just have to make Gryphon an Honorary Pack Member, DOG. :D The Pack [I]totally [/I]understands and applaud both Gryphon and Mollie for allowing common sense to guide them in the presence of that substance from the devil, clean water!! :laughing:

Is that Bailey in the pool with your daughter? :cloud9:

Dog Dancer July 4th, 2012 10:21 AM

Chum looks like he's thinking "Holy cow Mom, you didn't tell me the water was that cold!" It's a great shot. Halo's with the pack and Molly and Gryphon on this one - don't even bother putting out a kiddy pool for this lab!

CsqU4r3d July 4th, 2012 12:18 PM

What great shots everyone....Chum says y'all don't know what your missing, I can smell water from miles away and have never met a puddle, river, lake or ocean I didn't like. HHHMMM I have never seen a swimmy pool tho....better send mum out to get me one!:crazy::laughing:

Soundy July 4th, 2012 12:28 PM

Not a swimmy pool as such, but we picked up a 4' kiddie wading pool at Toys R Us a couple summers ago for the Mini-Mutts... was something like $15.

What a shocker, that a dog named for a type of fish likes the water ;)

CsqU4r3d July 4th, 2012 12:41 PM

Soundy if the weather here ever warms up I will have to make a trip to the toy store....Chum would be in 7th heaven...LOL I was thinking he was named for shark bait!! Careful in that ocean Mr. C!:eek:

Here is Zeus trying to keep cool in his "pool".

hazelrunpack July 4th, 2012 08:56 PM

I think Zeus needs a larger pool, FionaBeth! :D

marko July 5th, 2012 08:55 AM

Nice one FionaBeth!

Soundy July 12th, 2012 11:42 AM

Went to the beach in White Rock this past Sunday... first thing Dusty did when he hit the sand was find the first tidal pool, walk in, and lay down:


Running through the water helps keep one cool with all the splashing :)


It's always nice to share your cool with new friends (even if they don't seem to appreciate it)!


That's what I'm talkin' about!


Daisy likes a good paddle too:


"I'm plenty wet now, thanks... :P"


hazelrunpack July 12th, 2012 03:37 PM

Omd, yes, [I]plenty [/I]wet! :laughing: Great set, Soundy!! Makes me feel cooler just looking at your pics!

marko July 13th, 2012 08:44 AM

Soundy July 13th, 2012 09:41 AM
