A Dog's Life...

This is our black lab Cooper. His favorite summer activity is retrieving the tennis balls that we hit out into the lake with a tennis racket. We launch them out as far as we can and he happily swims out and brings them back to us.

Cooper has a friend Max who lives 2 doors down and it's a race between the two of them to see who can get to the ball the fastest. Max is about 4 years younger, and a faster swimmer...so he usually wins.
Eli loves to get out with Daddy and the neighbor guys and play with the dogs. This is Nugget, she lives a couple of doors down.


Here's the race between Max and Cooper. Pretty neck and neck, but Max is a little ahead.



Another pic of Eli and Nugget. She is a golden retriever pup.

Hi Kim,

Love the pictures of the dogs and your adorable son! Reminds me of my first Springer Spaniel Cocoa. She would swim as far as she could for her tennis ball. I miss that. Our 2nd Springer Spaniel doesn't care for the water (loves the tennis ball though). Go Figure!


Thanks for your post!
Enjoy your summer. HAve you noticed that the stores already have the summer stuff on sale? I can't stand it! Summer just got started here about 2 weeks ago.
