Fro'lick Time


The beautiful calm before the storm 
(or romp in my case)!


As we reach the crest of the hill 
my magic sniffer picks up on a familiar,
yet unfamiliar scent.


I know I look a little blurry in this photo,
but look what's in the tree on the left.
We didn't even notice it there,
until we started going through these pics.
(Remembrance Day Poppies don't grown on trees do they?)


Finally we reached the soccer field 
and there was this white Portuguese Water Dog.
Who knew they came in pure white.


We had a blast fro'licking and playing.


Speed demons...as we teased each other up and down the field.


A tag-along tried to keep up but to no avail.


We just had some plain good ol' fun like dogs do...!
What's with the 'talky' humans anyway?
Don't they even notice how much fun we are having!?

  4. Any Portuguese Water Dog that I've ever seen has been black -- so a pure white one must be extra special! Boy, they are active dogs -- maybe even more so than doodles?

    1. I know what you mean Debra....I thought they were all black too....then I saw a black and white one at PPP...now all white...what's the world coming to?

  5. There is nothing more joyful than watching dogs (and cats) letting loose and running and playing. Wonderful. And that poppy tree is really touching.

  12. Too fast! Pugsley would take one look at y'all and sit down next to me.
    His legs are too short for that.

    1. That's OK Pugs.....watchers are always permitted in my neck of the woods!

  13. Well, Sophie, I have a good idea just how enthusiastically you run, play and swim, because I knew a dog named Hudson who was of similar breed heritage. He has moved away and sure is missed. Here's a link so you can see his picture.

      Thanks

    2. Aw, thanks, Sophie! You're right. That IS cool. You would have really loved Hudson but he wasn't one to comment much so I really appreciate hearing from you :)

  15. You make me smile, Sophie! I especially loved the Speed Demon picture. Running around like that doesn't quite do it for me, though. I'm trying to learn to slow down and smell the roses. And I spend way too much time chasing my tail! Happy romping to you this week!
