The Birthday Celebration

Yesterday was Diesel's day.  We took him out to the tank to play in the water.

I think he was pretty happy to head out there!


He and Pepper played.


And he swam and swam and swam.  I've never had a dog that likes to swim that much!


I told the Husband we should have brought chairs to sit in.  Diesel would swim all day if we let him.  But he finally got out of the water and we headed back to the house.  Time for a snack.


Then it was play time with his favorite toy.


Doesn't he look ferocious!  I think that's the first time I've ever seen his teeth!  And look, he can jump real high too...



He finally wore the Husband out.


Now the Wife's turn to play!


And some sweet time was spent.


It took a lot to wear this puppy down!  The Husband walked thru the kitchen late in the evening and said he saw Diesel laid out in the yard.  I think he was finally tired.

**on a side note, my running blog is up.  Click on the Reeboks & Spurs pic on the right side over there, if you're interested.**

Dee said...

Awww, the only thing missin was cake! I can not believe how big he got!

Linda said...

That dog looks plumb happy! Give him a birthday hug eh!

That gives me an idea, I think a Merry Unbirthday is long due for my canine friends, maybe the barn lions, the house cat( that's kind of like house wife isn't it?), maybe even a cowboy and his hired man( wife). I wonder if I can make liver pate look like cake?
