We've Been Playing at the Cottage!!!!!

Yup, that's right. While you poor humans were baking in the heat, we disappeared to the cottage for a bit of refreshment in the spring-fed lake.

And we had great fun. Just look:

All three waiting for Dad to throw.

Ridge really paying attention!

Elsie waiting; Ridge growing impatient.

Ridge and Baxter retrieving the same dummy (such smooth strokes!).

Elsie slashing after her own (she still starts off swimming each year by splashing her front paws--she's just SO excited). :o)

Ever graceful Ridge.

It sure was nice up there (northern Susquehannah County, PA). And we'll return there in the fall. In the meantime, we're keeping the canine kids' ears clean and dry, trying to prevent infection.

Oh, and we only had ONE small episode of limber tail syndrome this year (unlike last year). Elsie's wag seemed broken, but only for a day or two. :o)

She's her normal perky self now.

'Til next time,

Hi Meredith,

They miss you, too! I hope everything's going well for you out there. :o) The doggies have been depressed since everyone left for college. Oh well. They'll adjust (like we all will, eh?) Hang in there!
