(Trying to) Beat the Heat!

The last two days have been ridiculously hot, particularly for September. Highs in the mid 90's. Fortunately it is breaking, and the forecast for Friday calls for a high of 69 degrees.

I have worked 0600-1430 the last two days, and have taken advantage of getting off at an early hour. I took Neeko to a nearby park for swimming yesterday, and took Faolan today.

Neeko really, really loves to actually swim, not just wade and splash around. It's a wonderful, low-impact exercise for all dogs.

Faolan is more into splashing and wading, though he does enjoy actually swimming as well.

He and I went on a quick hike after swimming, where he flushed a rabbit, and just stared curiously at it as it ran off. I wasn't able to get a picture of that. I was impressed that he didn't go crazy, though.

  1. That looks like SO much fun... especially on such a hot day! I wish my Lucas would swim because, like you said, it's a great low-impact exercise. Although, come to think of it, I'm not sure I'd want them swimming anywhere around here now that we live in alligator-infested Louisiana! :)


Thanks for the howls!!
