Adventures With Skeet and Harvey

I had too many photos for one post about the rain and I really do think the puppies deserve their own post because they just had way too much fun after the rain

                             

can you say happy?

                                  

They were completely perplexed by the sound of the croaking toads. The toads are in the water and can't be seen, but their serenade can only be described as deafening and the dogs just couldn't figure out where the offenders were located

                               

Skeet spent much of his time in full alert

                               

And Harvey spent his chasing after Skeet

                                

Oh, those 2 had more fun than a barrel of monkeys and I think Harvey is enjoying being a ranch dog

                                 

At one point, the dogs were on the opposite shore from DH and I and he whistled to them. Harvey dove right in

                                           

sank

                              

oh, I spy a nose!

                              

and swam 20 yards

                               

across the dirt tank that's about 6 feet deep, using his tail as a rudder


But Skeet whined for a second and then made a beeline around the dirt tank

                               

splashing through the shallow edge:

                              

We cheered for Harvey as he reached the shore:

                                      

Skeet loves the water as long as his feet don't leave the ground

                                

Although he doesn't mind being airborne:

                                

Go Skeet!

                                 

I got as much joy out of watching these two kick up their heels as they did playing

                                 

This is what pure joy looks like


Our girl is in Hawaii this week and she's been sending us pictures. I texted her and jokingly said, "You're not coming back, are you?" and then I sent her this photo with the caption: Harvey's on his way. :)


I can't think of a better way to spend the morning and I think these two are definitely living life with gusto:

Thanks for the chuckles this morning - some warning would have been helpful as I nearly spit out my tea when I saw Harvey sink.

Fun photos!

Always love your pictures! Skeet and I have the same idea about water . . so long as my feet can touch bottom and my head is above water, I'm good!

Libby said...

I'll bet they slept good that night, if they waited that long. I enjoyed watching them.

Nothing like a happy dog to teach you what's important in life! I love Skeet and Harvey.

Great action photos. As I looked at them it felt as if I was there seeing it happen.

You go guys !!!

Dar said...

This made my day and now I wish we had dogs, a tank and lots of rain. You did a great job capturing the enthusiasm and joy they were having. !

Those two pups are enjoying life to the fullest! Isn't it interesting how they approach things, Harvey choosing to swim and Skeet choosing to go around the water. After spending time on the ranch with Skeet, Harvey may decide he wants a career as a ranch dog.
