Dogs in the Water

It's pretty rare to get both dogs in the same picture- Ruby is in zoom mode most of the time & Zoe is often by my side.

Ruby runs back & forth around the lake, occasionally wading in with other dogs to play.

All of the owners sit around, trying to find shade & trying to stay dry & clean from all the dog shaking going on.

Zoe usually loves tennis balls & I tried very hard to coax her into getting this one, even offering treats. I finally gave up and threw some treats in the water, which Ruby promptly retrieved.

This dog is in constant motion...

Such a pretty girl!

I have no idea what this was about, but you can see Zoe snarling. Ruby wants to play SO bad, but Zoe just isn't interested.

If either of us made a move, the dogs noticed us standing up or shifting around. I think they were afraid we'd leave them.

The real reason Zoe won't swim when Ruby is around is because Ruby tries to swim on top of her all the time. I really don't blame Zoe one bit, but Tony was determined to get Zoe in the water.

She's light enough to toss a few feet & the water is deep.

In she goes!

With Ruby right behind her into the water.

And then Ruby right on top of her in the water.

Ruby doesn't do this to other dogs swimming, so I can only assume she wants to play with Zoe.

Zoe tries to make a quick escape & get out ASAP.
Zoe is not amused.....
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: I start my volunteering at church again today, watching the 4 year olds.

Ruby there's no piggy backing when you're swimming!
