Dog Day Afternoon

    Cleo and Shoe Shoe went out to the lake.

    Here’s the lake:

    And here is the boat (that’s The Wiz and his son, who is driving):

    Here are the dogs, Cleo and Shoe Shoe (so named because he loves to sit in your shoes…yes, Chatty said IN, not ON!) in the boat cabin just after “take-off”:

    Cleo just loves being out on the water with The Wiz (if you think dogs can’t smile, take a closer look):

    Happy, much?

    But, that water looks AWFULLY DARK. Will he, or won’t he????

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Besides, it’s HOT out here on the lake in a boat! Chatty was amazed when a few seconds after this picture was taken,  this tiny dog crawled up onto the edge of the boat, then THREW himself off into the water with great abandon. Chihuahuas are fearless! He swam around for about five minutes, then approached the dock, where his mama scooped him up:

    That was refreshing, but now he has to shake off:

    Shoe Shoe was taught NEVER to pee in the pool. Was that a pool? He’s not taking any chances, and even though there are no trees nearby, he does the best he can, under the circumstances:

    And now, off Cleo and Shoe Shoe go – because something is smelling good on the barbecue, and they are hoping to get a little sumpin’ sumpin’…

    They got bites of barbecued hot dog, which seemed appropriate…

    The End.
