GREAT Photos, Caryl! I love Blogville. I just went from Mr. Mango killing a snowman to Mr. Toby waltzing on water. So wonderful!!

Deborah said...

WOW, you sure do know how to take great action shots! I was just thinking I need a better camera! LOL
Toby looks like he is having so much fun..I never let my dogs in the pool, I'm afraid they will rip my liner!
Have a great day in your sunshine :)

Neeli is jealous! She wants to go swimming with Toby instead of getting her paws wiped after walking in the snow where salt has been thrown.

Enjoy your swimming!

You jumped right in that water? Of your own volition?
Incredible! I never will quite understand you retrievers...
But yes, if its really your thing, then Go TOBY GO!

HI there, Toby looks like he is having a delightful time in the water! I wish it was spring here, but best not to wish away our days.
We are supposed to get snow tomorrow and Reggie is not too happy about having to go out in the cold as his arthritis gives him fits.
Have a wonderful New Years.
Hugs and pets,
Noreen & Reggie-dog

Hi Toby,

You are sure growing into a handsome young man there. I remember when your mom was just waiting to get you home. You look like you are having a fabulous time in the water. I think it's so strange the way some doggies just love the water and some like me don't like it...I mean I like the indoor shower but don't put me in a pool, lake or pond...NO Way Jose!

PS - Mom wants to know since shes never had a water dog....when they jump into the pool does their head ever actually get submerged in the water? If so any pics of that..just curious.

Hey, Toby! You practicing for the 2012 Olympics? Bet you could make the S.A. team easy. Sounds to us like you're a very normal 5-month-old boy. Our position is that if we get into stuff we shouldn't, it's entirely mama's fault for not putting it up higher or closing the door or whatever. It's HER job to dog-proof the world if she doesn't want us doing perfectly normal doggie stuff. You might want to back off on the jumping on Aunt Tam and King Toffee though, lest you lose your dangly bits.

It's such a pleasure to see photos of your beautiful yard, in the midst of the cold, bleak winter here.
