Welcome July

Holy smokes, can you believe it's July already? The year is half over with. So far we haven't had very much extra hot weather. I do believe we've had more than enough rainy, cool days too.
Of course this time of year Wade and Duke always look forward to getting in some pool time. Cooler temperatures and rain means that the pool sits unused far too much.


Who do you think was the first one to start pool season off this year? Yep, you got it. It was Duke. It was the first really nice day after the pool was ready and Wade was blowing up the rafts. Apparently Duke couldn't stand the wait. He ran up on the deck and the next thing you know I hear a splash and see Duke swimming for the ladder.

Same here - we're still waiting for those lazy summer days.
Duke really loves the pool, I can see that :)

I think I've mentioned this before, but Duke reminds me so much of my granddog, Beemer! Beemer LOVES water...of any kind!! His favorite way to spend the day is in the pool or in the lake!! Must be a terrier thing!

Happy July, Ann!
Oh this is so precious. Our dogs liked the pool too. I'll send over some heat to you, please send us rain :)

Have a great week!

You're so lucky to have a pool, mind you having said that, living in the UK we really don't have much need of one, unless of course it is indoors and heated!!

Surfer Dog.. woo hoo, hang on Duke... i like that reflection in the first photo, a perfect one.. i am sure the reflection is long gone from surfer dog ripples.

Right now, I wish we had a pool, it has been so hot and humid! Duke looks like he's sending me a personal invitation...:)JP

I'm glad that Duke got to enjoy a little of the pool. We haven't used ours yet either. What is with this weather?

You go Duke!!! It's always cool to be the first in anything!! And the ducks at the lake you pass by while going to the grocery store, Ann, are great photos. I can almost hear mama duck clacking in her throat, warning her ducklings!!

Duke is always first in the pool. He's a smart Westie.

Have a terrific day. Woof woofs to Duke. :)

Duke is so cute! Love the colors in these photos...pretty! Your pool looks so refreshing!

Betsy Adams said...

That looks so inviting..... Does Duke enjoy being IN the water --or just on top????? Some dogs love water and some don't...

Hugs,
Betsy

We know that pool is really just for Duke! He looks so happy!

Methinks you should start shooting videos and put up Duke Watch episodes on YouTube.

Chatty Crone said...

That pool looks wonderful. And I just can't believe Duke is so brave! sandie

Cute! Love the shadows you captured in the first shot.
We've had a little too much rain too but I know the sweltering summer will get here. :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Carletta said...

That should have been 'reflection' in the water. It's late... :)
