Park portraits

The days are warming up! I go to the park in all kinds of weather, but it's nice when I don't have to bundle up quite so much. Today was a no-hat no-gloves day. Sophie will need to be sheared soon so she's not quite so Dog of the Wilderness.
After wading in the river, Lannie has flood pants. She looks goofy because I caught her just at the tail end of shaking off. Her front legs have the shaved sections because she recently had surgery and that's where the catheters were. I should've asked the groomer to even them out a bit so it doesn't just look like a bad attempt at frou-frou.

Leo found some ducks, but they refused to come when he called.


  1. Surgery? As in bread dough surgery? Uh oh. But she looks great -- they all do. I hope YOU'RE OK. I really wish our dog run had water (besides the muddy standing puddle kind).

  2. Lannie had bloat a few weeks ago (the stomach flips over and strangulates). She's fine now, happily. They're both full of piss and vinegar. And I'm OK, too!

    The park really is a dogsend for us.

  3. We don't blame the ducks for not coming...fois grois!
    BTW- our first cooking video is up!

  4. I'm sorry to hear about what happened to Lannie, my previous dog died to bloat.

  5. Video? I will certainly check that out! Did you cook foie gras?

    Jessy, that's so sad. It's really a nasty thing to happen to a dog. Some people even elect to get their dog's stomach "tacked" to prevent it, instead of waiting until after the fact.
