Memorial Day

Duke's Memorial Day Story

BBQ at Fiancé's parent's house, of course Duke came and alll he wanted to do was play ball!

"Daddy, can we play some ball?"

He's fast when he wants to be. It wasn't that hot outside when we started to play.

Duke can change direction in the snap of a finger, but is not very good at stopping on a dime.

"Got it!"

This just isn't doing it for him. After he gets so heated up he climbs into the water dish and "bobs" for the tennis ball (can you see the drool of water hitting the bowl?).

"Are you sure this is safe?" (notice the life vest)

He was a strong swimmer! Fiance held on for the first go with swimming.

Duke swims all by himself! He looks like he is smiling in the picture, but it turns out he really doesn't like the water, at least when he is completely submerged.

This is the method he uses to dry himself. He throws himself at whatever absorbent surface he can find... head first and rolls around.

Happy Memorial Day!

mr. puggle does the rolling around thing too. they look so funny when they do that.

Those pictures are pawsome. I especially liked the one with your paws in the water bowl. Great Kodak moments! I don't like the water too much eater...its good for drinking and thats about it for me!

Hi Duke!
Great pictures!
I do NOT like water either! I would only get in the water if my mommy is in it first and I do appreciate the life jacket!

Enjoy the summer!
