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.

  3. 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!

  5. 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!!

  10. 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!!
