He had flip flops on when we took pictures at the house and what was really funny is that most of the kids actually wore flip flops to the ceremony. You could hear them snapping as they crossed the stage.
Yesterday, my husband had the day off, so we took Indy to Buntzen Lake, to the special dog beach to swim. It was smokin' hot here-about 29C so it was really good to go off to the wilds for a bit where it was cooler. Just as we arrived on the beach, a bald eagle flew right over our heads. It was so beautiful!
Here's Indy heading out to get his Kong. He has a special one that's made for the water (it's filled with foam and has a rope so you can fling it far) which he loves. He swam non-stop for 2 hours. Labs are such elegant swimmers. They have webbed toes so they look like otters in the water and once they get in, they will swim till you are exhausted! He loves the water and it was alot of fun watching him swim. I like to see my dog happy.
The water is so good for his coat too-when he comes out he's so nice and soft. Labs have a special coat for being in the water. It may get wet on top, but it takes alot to get wet in the under layers of their fur. When they shake off, they are pretty well dry. I saw other dogs there that are not aquatic dogs (Shepards, poodles, etc.) and when they would come out of the water, they could barely stand up their coats were so saturated. The water would just pour off them. It explains why they look so awkward swimming too-their fur is pulling them down, like someone trying to swim fully clothed.
Today is going to be a catch up day. I have some projects sitting on my desk that need my attention, so I am going to grab a quick brekki and get down to business. Can you believe it's JUNE already? Where does the time go?
