Happy New Year and an Answer

Well this week no one was even close to guessing what this image was.It really was droplets of water cascading off our excited pup Lilli on Christmas day.Many of the places we go on our weekends are National Parks so dogs are banned. But for our Xmas BBQ last Sunday we went to a spot on the Yarra River where dogs are welcome. Our Girls and Lilli had a great time in the water.

A ball, water and getting to run around - a mix that is pretty close to heaven for a Labrador!

You will have to forgive me but this rather silly story has just popped into my head while I look at these photos.

"I can't see my ball. Can you?'"No mate, I can't""Lu, I've lost my ball, can you see it?""We can't see it either""Found it!""Now back into the water."Lilli did actually lose two balls on the day.
Lucky we travel with spares.
As to the Kookaburras, they were busy hunting for food for their young on the ground along the river.

Take care

that was a tough one! Glad you went to a place where dogs could have fun, too. We have a few places around here where dogs can run free - off lead - and my dog (Jonah) loves to go. All those new smells and then the bonus of the river and the possibility of dead crabs. Yum!

Happy New Year Al! I would have never guessed that the photo was your dog! I thought it was the sky. ;)

Awe she's adoreable. We have a labrador/blumenveiler cross. He's such a lovely dog, but he's terrified of deep water for some reason. :-)

I'd never have guessed that, but what a delightful answer! Thanks for sharing these photos. Wish you guys could send us a little of that heat wave... it was -29 or so with the wind chill today.
