Just about to take the plunge

To modify Oscar Wilde…

“I can resist anything except temptation … and water!”

Oscar (my dog) stood and stared at the water, but in the end, the joy of jumping in was too great!

Can you think of a better way to start off your day?

  9. Lady Fi: Don’t you wish you had that freedom, like Oscar, to just jump in. I imagine the water is still pretty cold.

    I love that he is smiling and his ears are perked ever so slightly. Dogs are sooo animated and wonderful.

  13. Dogs are the best. I learn from them.
    We babysat a friend’s puppy last night , together with our little guy the two of the them made me laugh and enjoy the evening in a way only animals can sometimes.

    Oscar is beautiful.
