Puppy Pranks

Image copyright Fred First This one is for the kids. I wrote them last week when Buster had a couple of bad days and we were worried about him. This picture is just to show that he has fully recovered to his prior levels of obnoxiousity and is enjoying the snow, even if he is basically an Orlando Retriever (at least that's what he tells us when he stands at the door with his legs crossed, refusing to go as far as the lilacs to pee when it gets below 20 degrees).

In this picture, I had hopped down off the road to take some ice pictures along the creek, and had taken off my gloves to operate the camera. I look up a minute later, my gloves are gone, and I hear this "Yahyahyah" from you-know-who. So kiddos, the ol' boy Buster is back!

While we're in doggy mood, go over to Fool's Blog and see how puppy Harley has grown in just a couple of months. Great slide show. Sit back and enjoy the feline-canine wrestling match!

Awww! What a handsome boy! I'm glad that he's feeling better after having had a few tricky days!

Wow, he is almost a sihouette in full sunlight! Those gloves almost seem to be floating in mid air like a loss of gravity! My dog is the same way about cold. She definately a seasonal aspect to her, she sheds like crazy in the summer, and only less in the winter! But she won't stay out in the cold. Ha! In decent snow she'll pounce around for a while (she's got a beagle's body so fairly short, but with golden retriever markings down to the last T) and then immediately want back in.

Hey, thanks for sharing the photo of Buster (and the snow).

We don't have a dog.
We don't have snow.

Hanging out at your place for a while reading...

Gorgeous. As my scattered shoes testify: a labrador can get nervous without something to retrieve! Perhaps you could sing: "Don't go collecting things/Give me my rose and my glove" !
