Smile I love my Avenue....

Lazy, hazy day of summer today and after much work yesterday, I decided to walk across the boulevard down to the river.

Some people think that Seagulls are very annoying when it comes to crowds and food but this little birdy seemed so peaceful floating about.

I Love my Avenue.

The End!

Very pretty! Looks like you have some great walking venues there, klm! Can you bring dogs along there, too?

Oh yes Hazel. We have a great walking path along the river's shore where I walk Gryph and Mollie all the time. There's even a small little sandy beach around the corner from my house but unfortunately; both Gryphon and Mollie are petrified of water!

Maybe Chum could swing by and teach a fellow Springer how to swim CsqU4r3d?

The Pack think that Gryphon and Mollie are showing very good sense by not going in the water! They hates water, too! Hates it, they does!

Gryphon tried the swimming thing 3 years ago. This video was taken down at the sandy beach around the corner. He's such a loving goofball!

He's so silly! Standing on the bottom with his hind feet, pretending he's swimming by slapping his front paws on the surface! Poor guy just wants to be swimmin' like his pal, Bailey!

If he gets in too deep does he sink?

Oh Hazel...We've tried everything and it's hopeless! If he gets in too deep, he just gets into this slapping mode. I tried to support his belly underneath and bring his back legs up but he goes into panic mode and starts ripping and scratchin' the bee-jee-bee's outta me.

So lovely, klm! Just looking at your photos made me decompress instantly...I can only imagine what it'd be like to have easy access to such places. Thanks so much for sharing .

I swim a little bit like that, too. We'll just have to make him an honorary setter, I guess!

We are truly lucky LP. On a warm day such as today, it's so nice to have tranquil moments to make the stress of the day go away.

What a beautiful trail area. I love the video too, Gryphon is so cute, like Hazel I could see he was walking! What a chuckle. My two hate the water also and Halo is a lab - go figure!

Some dogs with webbed fit just don't mix with water DD.

We are truly blessed with our trails and look forward to every walk amongst them. Total relaxation/decompression.

We tried to tell Gryphon that about 4 years ago Chico and he still doesn't understand the doggie paddle.

Maybe it's because he thinks he's a hooman!

Chico, our darling Cuddles was once asked to work sheep and she just didn't have a clue. To cool off because it was a warm day she decided to run into the nice BIG puddle, which happened to be our dam, full to the brim. She went straight under and again, didn't have a clue, came up and was swimming like she was climbing a ladder . I must admit we did have to roll around laughing as we watched. Poor girl, but no harm done.

Oh my Goodness CsqU4r3d! I cannot believe how much Gryphon & Chum look so alike! (my smileys aren't working-grhhh!)

As I was watching the video, I'm amazed how much Chum looks looks like my Gryph. Heck...even the water and shoreline looks like the little beach I take them too.

Whenever I want to envision Gryphon swimming, I guess I'm gonna have to watch Chum's video. (insert smiley face)!

klm, do you think that lily growing there could be this one....

Meadow Lily
Lilium canadense x grayii
Glorious, dangling beauty. Nodding, bell shaped flowers with recurved petals of yellow through to burnt orange-red with heavy maroon spotting.


If it is, to buy it here, 1 for $24.

I know they look like litter mates!! They could be for all I know, my late husbands sister dropped him off here for a few days while she looked for a new home for him...his owners both had alzheimers and were increasingly unable to care for him. This also caused a problem getting any history on him ( as neither owner could remember any thing). I had said no more dogs after we lost our malamute (just too hard when they go)...I stuck to my guns for 5 years. But after one look at Chum, well he had found his new home!!! He has been my constant shadow ever since. My hubby always called him "that shameless dogfaced mama's boy!" Chum has been my little savior, without him I do not know how I would have gone on after loosing my husband to cancer at the age of 52. So maybe Gryphon and Chum are long lost brothers.

Not sure GF. They're pretty common around my area and see many houses with them lined in flower beds as well.

Oh the resemblance is truly remarkable! My hubby was always fond of the Springer breed and when he came home with an advertisement, he was so excited and wanted to equal out some testosterone amongst female hormones.

While I was so not up to another puppy, we brought Gryphon home almost 8 years ago and wouldn't change it for the world.

Now hubby teases me as Gryphon is MY shadow. Anytime I get up or walk about, Gryphon is stuck like glue on me and I can hear hubby talking in Gryphon tongue, "Mommy, Mommy!"

Gryphon is also a dogfaced mama's boy CsqU4r3d!
