A beautiful day, a beautiful lake and gorgeous dogs!

Bela is the lab/hound mix of this trio and harbinger of all attention (one is not permitted to pet or otherwise provide notice of anyone else while in her presence.) 🙂 She has liquid brown eyes that tug at your soul and a talent for tracking fish.

She loves the water and gets up high to search for schools of fish (usually taking her position on the boat, while docked) only to come dashing down when she spots them in hopes of one day catching “the big one”.

She’s a fabulous play mate and kept me completely entertained. Her hound-ness shows right through when a passing boat or jet skier skims by… you can’t mistake her alert signal as she HOWWWWWLLLLSSS!! 😉

Lily is a darling combination of Chow and Corgi (who’da thunk?) She is (a) gorgeous (b) super soft and (c) taps right along with purpose wherever she goes. A true sweetheart.

She also has a naturally inquisitive nature and will ENDLESSLY search for the source of spontaneous bubbles. I thought she was being hospitable, you know, digging up two dozen clams to serve me (on the half shell) with some drawn butter. Turns out, her parents discovered, she’s actually chasing the sulfur bubbles that pop up. It’s her favorite past time. I don’t blame her, it looks so refreshing. 😉

Her face makes me talk to my computer. Can you blame me?

Blaze is an Afghan hound mix currently serving his reign as King of the Dock, according to Dad. He does a good job of it too. When he’s not governing boat land he’s actually kind of a shy guy. Very particular.

He’s not a big fan of wet grass. Didn’t seem to have much use for sand or splashing around in the water. He’s charmingly reserved and prefers his safety zone of the sofa right next to Mom & Dad. He’s a lover boy.

And when you’re the only dude of the dog family, it’s just wise to let the women take the lead and stay out of the way- ha ha 😉 He is really so sweet and loving and he just makes you want to curl up with him on the couch and watch movies.

I had a wonderful morning, even getting to get my footsies wet in the lake. It was awesome, I’m not gonna lie. These dogs are way cool! Oh, and I also got to meet the kitty which, I was informed, is pretty much like getting an appointment with the Queen of England so that was pretty neat. She even took post near the bottom of the stairs to watch some of the photo shoot. 😉
