The life of a pool boy.

Hop on the raft with Duke and he'll show you his most favorite pool game.
Are you ready for this? 
Hey! No fair, I wasn't ready for that one.
 UH OH! Here comes a big one.
The secret to this game is concentration. You have to really watch for the splashes.

Then jump for them just at the right time.
 Duke's ready for more but it's time for a break.

Hope you enjoyed Duke's favorite game. Do you need a towel?

Yes, I need a towel and a glass of iced tea. How adorable.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

That's a great game, Duke and it looks like something fun and cool to do on a hot summer day.
Have fun!

BeadedTail said...

Looks like Duke has had lots of practice at that game! He is just so cute! Does he let anyone else use the rafts and boats in the pool too?

Nessa said...

Awww... Duke!! Can I dognap you?? ;)

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Oh! Duke ... I am sooooooo jealous. Can I have a play date? Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Yes I do. He is THE CUTEST!!! I need him to teach me these pool games.

does Duke ever jump off the raft and go in the water??? Or is he more of a pool lounger??

FishHawk said...

Yes, I believe I do need a towel (and maybe a mop). For the anticipation became quite overwhelming.

Russ said...

Duke is looking good as usual.I used a paper towel to wipe off my keyboard.

DK Miller said...

Duke sure is cute and seems to really enjoy the raft. Great shots - i love the one with the water splash.

Duni said...

oh my goodness - that is amazing :) What a cool pool mattress too!

Audrey said...

What a rough life! LOL That looks like so much fun :)
We've had nothing but cool weather and rain - not really thinking about spending time at the pool.

Donna said...

Can anybody say Spoiled??Hahahaa...And he Deserves Every minute of it!
Loving Duke!!

Grace said...

Marg said...

Ok, we are ready to play the game. Oooops we missed that one. Now we do need a towel and maybe a little nap. Duke you are really good at that game and what great thing to do on a hot day. Keep up the good work.

Water is not only something to drink.
It is a toy for children to play in, I think.
They stomp around in puddles of water,
Which Mama said, "You shouldn't ought a…"

They swim in lakes, and oceans, and pools,
Just to frolic, to splash, and stay cool.
They flap an umbrella in the falling-down rain,
And watch raindrops slide down a windowpane.

They tease their friends with pointed hoses.
They spray it; squirt it, sometimes up their noses.
If water is all of these wonderful toys,
Why is it at bath time kids make such noise?

Daisy said...

Ah, Duke, you do know how to have fun!

June Zach said...

It was a real fun Duke! Nice!!! ^_^
So adorably cute. ;)

Leeuna said...

Thanks for letting us play in the pool with Duke. I had a marvelous time and Duke is the perfect swim partner...plus he is totally adorable. Now, please toss me the towel. Thank you.

Ann said...

Sandee, towel on the table in the corner and pitcher of tea on the table, by all means help yourself :)

LDH Yes he is, you should see him in action. I've got to get a video and then figure out how to post it.

Anny Lucky or spoiled?...lol

Vanilla Seven Well Duke is using the pool, it's still too cold for me to get in.

Tahtimbo He could play it for hours, he's worse than a kid some times.

Beaded tail When one of us tries to float around on a raft he'll stand by the ladder and bark, if we ignore him he jumps in and swims over. He doesn't like not being included.

Nessa, He could probably be bribed for the right treat.

Sugar Duke would love to have a play date. He never gets to have friends over but then the only friends Duke has are of the human variety.

Poetic shutterbug He would enjoy teaching you but he's very strict about practicing.

allotments4you He doesn't jump in the water from the raft but he will jump in from the ladder.

FishHawk Well you just go ahead and help yourself to all the towels you need.

Russ those splashes do tend to travel some times. Glad you had paper towels handy

DKMiller He loves the pool too much. When we get home from work and head out to the deck that's the first thing he wants to do

Duni Duke is truly an amazing dog

Audrey Yes he does has things rough but somehow he survives anyway. Hasn't been too nice here the last few days either.

Donna spoiled with a capital S...lol

Grace, Duke is always good for a laugh, he's fun to watch

Marg I need a nap after playing with Duke too...lol

Buggys he would enjoy the company and I could use the break.

Out on the prairie. I love it. What an adorable poem. Thanks for sharing that

Daisy Duke's all about fun and good times

Junezach Glad you enjoyed his little game.

Leeuna come back and swim any time, Duke enjoyed it.

Ratty said...

He looks like he's having the time of his life.

Ann said...

Ratty, I believe his is but then again he seems to be having the time of his life no matter what he's doing. We could learn a lot from a dog :)

Duke is one lucky, spoiled, happy and lovable little guy.
