It’s a dog’s life!

We went down to the lake to enjoy the autumnal sunset. It was a lovely, warm evening.

Ready?

Ready?

Some of just sat and enjoyed the colours, while two small creatures had different plans …

Steady...

Steady...

To jump for joy…

Jump

Go!

  9. Dogs and kids have the most fun, don’t they?

    Beautiful photographs, and the contrast of the dog jumping and the tranquil scene is lovely.

  10. Wow – you do have water-loving dogs. One of ours jumped in the canal a while back and loved it – however, a white bichon frise dripping in algae is so not a good look.

  23. Hello! Oh, what a wonderful series of photos. We especially liked the ‘GO’ one, brilliant! We bet there was a great big soggy ‘splosh’ afterwards – what fun!! Goodness, we wish we had been there to join in all the fun! Schnauzer snuggles – JD and Max.
