The dogs are less than thrilled either. Poor Beth has been going through sheep withdrawal. It is too hot to herd. So we did the next best thing.
SPRINKLER TIME! YEAH!
Beth loves the sprinkler
Or hates it...we haven't figured it out yet.
Is she trying to kill the water?
Or just catch the water?
This is the dog who takes it as a personal insult if you throw the ball in the river and would rather let it float to Puget Sound rather than get wet past her knees.
At first Brynn was perplexed by the sprinkler
She watched and studied it. Oblivious to Beth...or so it seemed
Then she started to stalk it
Then WHAMMO! Another Sprinkler Freak is born.
Eventually Brynn grew weary of chasing water. Possibly showing she is the smarter one in the bunch.
She was content to sit back and let Beth and Bonnie corral the pesky stream.
Round and round they go...where they stop nobody knows!
Uhhhnn...Mom? I think Bonnie is mad at Beth... are you seeing this?
Bonnie is making bitey faces at Beth!
"That's okay Punkin" I told her "Bonnie is just trying to herd Beth"
Hiya Ranger! Whatcha doin' with your Jolly Ball?
Staying dry & hanging out with Mom and my favorite toy
I am not sharing my Jolly Ball
Mom, please make her go away
Beat it! It is MY ball!
Mom....I think I am tired.
PS Mom has lost 14.5 pounds at her weigh in this morning. WOOHOO!
