This time of year, while there's still plenty of rain, the local lake is great for swimming. The water is nice and clear, and the algae hasn't begun to take over. It's very hard to keep the boys out if they are running free. I am pretty sure swimming is their all time favorite exercise. They can go as crazy as they want playing fetch, but they don't overheat. Of course it does end in a bath at the end of the weekend, but living in the moment as they do, that never occurs to them until they see me coming with the hose!
For today, we have Jimmy. He has very expressive eyes when he's at this level of excitement. Either that, or the water was really, really cold!
If you've ever done any boating, you know that you must turn on your running lights at dusk. Jimmy's white tail tip reminds me of the stern light on the back of a boat.
