Hydration...so very important!


Here I am all dry, clean and ready for a jaunt ~~~ 
along  a new path that we discovered at the park today.
We almost slipped passed this pool of water ~~~ a stream ~~~


with a skim of ice covering it with many of last season's leaves frozen in place


Instinct 
~~~ DoodleInstinct ~~~
leads me directly into the pool.
I obey ~~~ well ~~~ because I know I have to christen these waters


before any other 4 legger finds it 
 making sure it's fresh, running and refreshing


Jim was taking pictures of the pool and it's reflections
as I sauntered through


~~~ sampling the water ~~~
spring water is always so good
can't pass up a hydration moment


always waiting my guys are ~~~
pools are like magnets
honestly
I can't help myself!

    1. I guess all my fur helps me to stay nice and warm ~~~ you don't want to be dashing into brooks and streams like this ~~~ your hair is way too short.

      Take care!Bunny!!

  5. Hi Y'all!

    Sounds like the water is a magnet for your guys too...even if it is for the reflection rather than the hydration.

  9. Sophie, you had me laughing all the way through this! How could you resist the pull of such a pretty water hole? I get it! I hear some chocolate calling to me right now! And I won't have to towel off after answering the call! Gotta run upstairs!

    2. I know you can't have chocolate, Sophie! To each her own! I'm don't think I'm going to be splashing through snow and ice-rimmed forest pools in my bare feet any time soon ~ at least not on purpose! We had a crackie (small Newfie mutt about the size of a Westie terrier) who would do tricks for Smarties. And my Scottie MacBeath would hunt up all the Easter eggs that were within his reach and eat them! He was amazing! Somehow both dogs survived just fine! We live in more enlightened times now ~ no chocolate for doggies! I'm sorry! :(
