Playing Hooky

The night and morning was full of rain but that did not stop us. 

We were in fact counting on the dark skies stopping other people. It seemed like the moment we got to the lake, the skies opened blue and the entire world was ours alone.

The moment the doggies were set free, Martok headed into the water. I dont mean for it, or towards it, he knew exactly what he was doing and he dived in, swam and swam and swam. I was entirely surprised as this is the first time he's really seen water. (cept our backyard kiddie pool)

Then he discovered fetching sticks and wanted nothing more than to get them out of the water. Over and over and over.

I am starting to wonder what breeds are really in Martok. He was adopted as a 'pit mix' but he bays like a hound and swims like a retriever! 

Taricha has swam a few times before but today she wont go in past her chest. 

No matter how Martok taunts her.

Last time we were at this lake there was a huge sandy beach.
It has been raining so much all week that the water was crazy high, no beach for us.
Just rocks.

Wet Puppies!


 We worked up an appetite running and swimming around so much. 
Mmmm cheese, crackers and sunshine.

It was a good day to play hooky.
