A Sunday Stroll

We took the monsters out for a walk yesterday afternoon.  The kiddos were needing to run.  It was beautiful outside, sunny, warm, no wind.  I think it was in the high 60s or low 70s.

We headed out to the tank in the back pasture.  Which is quite full from all the rain we've had.

It had rained the last few days.  So our pasture looks like swamp land.  Water is standing everywhere.  Luckily, we wore our mud boots for our little stroll.

Diesel was so happy to get to go to the tank.  He is still such a puppy.  So much energy!

He was splashin' thru the water, having so much fun.

He went for a little swim.

Diesel loves the water.  It's fun to watch him splash thru the tank.  He runs full blast around the outside of the tank, terrorizing the other dogs.

I think we managed to burn some of his puppy energy.  But it doesn't take long for him to recharge!

Goooosh I hate being stuck in the city. I think I would be looking a lot like Diesel if I had the chance to head back to the farm right now!

Great photos Kit, love the one with the arc of water coming off his tail. That's one happy dog! How's Lucky Dog doing?

Looks like a nice stroll! We plan to dig a pond within the next couple years....if it ever dries out enough to get a backhoe in here!

Janice said...

Great shots now that looks like a dog in his element.

That first photo is truly stunning!

How cute! Isn't it odd how some dogs absolutely love water, and others run!

Pony Girl said...

He looks like he's having a blast! Can you explain to this amateur why it's called a "tank"? Is it a man made water source, is it actually a tank (I'm thinking a giant metal pond here) or what? Thanks!

He does look like he's having a blast. It's hard to believe how nice your weather is......the water here has 18 inches of ice on it:(

I think that dog thinks he's a lab.
I also think we are getting your TX rain in CA
