Dogs Gone Wild

I woke up really early Saturday morning and took Zoe over to my mom's house, where she was puppy-sitting Ruby.

I let the dogs out in the retention pond behind her house for some morning exercise.

Ruby WENT NUTS! She raced at full speed from one end to the other, chasing up birds.

Zoe ran a bit, but did her usual of just standing there and watching Ruby be a real dog. ;)

The thing that really cracked me up was that Ruby barks (more of a yip) when she's chasing birds.

And she's got the longest tongue that just hangs out of her mouth after all that running.

Zoe found a ball on the baseball field and was perfectly content to just lay down with it.

Ruby still at super high speed!

I caught some hysterical stuff with my 200mm lens, high ISO, low light and shutter speed that was barely fast enough to keep up with the red lightening dog.

She literally ran, without stopping, for 10 straight minutes.

She didn't wander too far, but she certainly wasn't coming when called.

Finally got her attention and Zoe & I headed back to the house to cool off in the pool.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: We've got cucumbers growing everywhere!

Nothing like a ten-minute brain cramp to start the day!

A Vizsla with brain cramps is highly amusing to watch. What a great start to the day.

Run Zoe run! I have to make sure I let our young guy burn off some steam before he hunts, otherwise he gets a little high on bird-scent and gets a little independent. Great pics.

best wishes
