Flowers, Running & Earth

Today is a mix of photos.  First we will show you some pretty flowers for Dory's Flower Friday!

This is from our Magnolia tree.  Most of the blooms blew off and this is kinda beat up but me and Stanley like it anyway.

And this is the phlox that grows around our rocks.  In the front yard the phlox is several different colors but our mom was too lazy to go to the front yard to take a picture!

OK, that is all the flowers we have for now.  

Me and Stanley went running today but only went 5 miles cuz mom got too hot.  Sheesh!  Me and Stanley know how to cool off so why she was jacking our fun from a 6 miler we have no idea. 

 Stanley models the pawfect way to run and stay cool.  Isn't he handsome?

After mom quit we finished running, mom said we should rinse cool off.  BUTT we still got baths as soon as we got home!

Mom missed the REAL picture cuz I lost my balance from a slippery rock and did a face plant in the water.

Stanley was in a hurry to get going.  He thought we were gonna get ice cream or something.  Boy was he wrong!

We tried to convince dad to go our way but he yanked on those danged strings!

Another doggie showed up at our swimming hole but his mom would not let him go in the water.

And finally, we celebrate Earth Day!

  2. Wow, does that look like a cool swimming hole! What a great way to cool off! Sorry to hear about the baths - what is it with bipeds, anyway? Stanley looked GREAT!
    Our mom LOVES that phlox! She wants to plant some along our rock walls, but hasn't just yet.
    Yours sincerely,
