Fun in Our New Pond

 

    After seeing how much my dogs enjoyed the visits to my Mom's pond, we decided we had to have one at home, so we bought a new house and property with one.  Some of these pictures are from the first time they got to play in it!  As you can see, it was a great time. (I have since added photos from other pond fun over the past few years.) They have played ON it in the winter when it was frozen in winter, but now they can swim in it.  It was actually funny since some of the dogs thought they could run across like before, and they seemed surprised the ice was now liquid.  Most knew what water was though, having visited the other pond often enough to remember.  I always say my dogs live the best life since they have owners who go out of the way to give them an excellent quality of life.  I know what they like and work hard to give that to them.  My reward is the looks of joy on their faces.  We also bought a pedal boat and kayak so we can get out on the pond with the dogs, and take them for rides, and take photos from the boats.

 

 

    UPDATE 2015, I COMBINED ALL THE PICTURES FROM THE FIRST FEW YEARS WE'VE LIVED HERE, SO THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF GROUPS OF DOGS AS WE HAD DIFFERENT PEOPLE AND DOGS VISIT.

 

     Here they are at first approach the first time ever in this pond, with my dogs and visiting dogs:

 

 

   All the rest of these photos are from various years.  I just picked out some of my favorites.

Some Wubba Close Ups

    In the photos above and below, they were trying to bring it to me while I was in the kayak, taking pictures. Silly dogs!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 The puppies have really taken to fetching the Wet Wubba toy, and just swimming in general


 Though she's middle aged, Passion has turned into quite the diving dog!  She makes spectacular leaps for her Wet Wubba toys.  

 

 

 

Secret loves this game too!

 

Passion and Secret leap together

 

 

 

 

 

 I love the detail of water splashes in the photo below

 

 

 

Everyone wants a boat ride

 

 

 

  They also love riding on the boat with my husband!

     In the pictures above and below, you can see what puppies can get into.  All the dogs get a thorough bath and blow dry after each pond party, and these pictures show why!  They sure have fun getting that dirty though!!

 

 

Here is the pretty picture section

 

The light and color were beautiful
