Take Me to the River

It was SO FREAKING HOT today that I even went swimming in broad daylight! And then I got hot again. Since it was still 100 degrees when I headed to the creek, I found a swimsuit that sorta fit and I put some boxers on top of it. I wore my water shoes,  grabbed a dry pair of shorts for the ride home and my towel and we were off.

As usual the two dogs dashed into the river. I carefully walked into the waist deep water, Mabel and Bart eying me curiously. It was so hot, we were the only ones around. As soon as I found a big boulder under the water to sit on that allowed the water to wash over my shoulders, what did the two brats do???

This:


They both got out of the water apparently not wanting to be seen with me! Mabel kept watch from a good 20 feet away and Bart went further up the hill and curled up there! Despite my begging, pleading and promises off cookies and ice cream later, they would not venture back into the water... until I got out! WTH???

Maybe they wanted you to have some peace and relaxation by yourself for a few:) Next time you will have to bring some tasty treats in with you, bet that would lure them in.

Have a great but cooler weekend.

I hate it when I embarrass my dog. Now that she's blind, I'm able to avoid it more.

BOL Snowbrush!! I wonder if Bart and Mable sat on the bank and talked about how cute you are like we do when they're in the water. Probably Mable was complaining to Bart about your many short comings... I'm thinking of your video from a couple of weeks ago with the little doggie voices in the background...

The one time I don't bring a camera...that would have been a good shot. After you told me about this story I thought that I think they were in protection mode.
