It's Still Summer Here!

Here in the land of eternal summer, it's pretty much always a beach day. Lucky for us, it's been close to perfect weather recently with very calm seas. This is our usual beach which is only a 10 minute walk from our house.

Testing the water

The water was deliciously warm after the very hot weather we've had and even Lilly was quick to get right in. They strolled along the shore for a while cooling themselves off while I looked for sea glass.

Roxy tried fishing

...and pointing

She's fascinated by fish! I think she might actually catch one some day.

Then they started playing around with each other and Lilly had to have a massive shake to get the water out of her face. So silly!

Lilly had to do a little posing. She thinks she's such a princess!

Is this my good side?

Did you remember the sunscreen?

It was starting to get seriously hot and the dogs were looking tired so we decided to head home. I just want to mention sunscreen again for all you white and light colored dogs. It's very important to use it! We use the kids waterproof kind and rub it all over Lilly's face and neck when we're out in the sun for any length of time.

Heading up the hill towards our house. Aren't the colors of the houses beautiful?!

Almost home! Time for a quick rinse to get the salt water off and then....a SIESTA!

**for those of you wondering about sea glass, here's what we got on that short outing.

Super Sabado!

We had a bath today!

All the dogs are quite good about baths and especially on a particularly hot day like today, I think they quite enjoyed it. I don't bathe them really often, maybe about every two months or when Lilly has rolled in something really stinky! We brush first to get rid of all the loose hair. I then use a curry comb(actually made for horses) to rub the shampoo into a good lather. This also loosens more hair and gives them a great massage which they REALLY like. I use a whitening shampoo on Lilly and regular on the other two. We then towel dry. They love drying also. As soon as I say, "OK, let's dry", they're all shoving each other to be first. After that, I put on Show Sheen. This product is actually made for horses and I'm sure there's something similar for dogs but my background is horses so that's what I use. It's makes their coat VERY slick and shiny and also helps to repel dust and dirt. Plus, it smells good! After bathtime is treat time!

Roxy's looking for hers here. "Is it up there Mom?"

"We think we should get extra for our excellent "down, stay"!

Lilly has gone and rubbed her nose in the plants AGAIN and gotten dirty already! I had to wash her face yet again. Silly little slob that she is....
