Muddy Puddle Doggy Smile [repost]

Golden retriever

Last year when I was up north I got to hang out with my sweet little grand-kitty and my energetic grand-puppy. We took Rory to the dog beach, but the tide was all the way in, so we opted for the trail instead of the shore. The trail was full of puddles however, some small ones and some lake-size. The humans and normal doggos naturally avoided the puddles because who wants to get all wet and cold when it’s barely 60 degrees?

A retriever, that’s who! There could be sumpin’ in a puddle to retrieve, and Rory was determined not to leave a single puddle unexplored.

Happy wet and dirty doggo! I don’t have actual splashy pics because Rory liked to jump on us after each puddle foray, so I didn’t have my phone out the whole time.

I’m looking forward to my next visit.

  2. Of course Rory had to check out that lovely rock painting! Great photos. I always think of CA as being densely packed with people, but there are plenty of wide open spaces if this pic is any indicator.

  4. What a fun-filled, wet, soggy, dogy day. I love it. So happy to hear you had so much fun. The pictures you shared were great. Rory has a huge smile on his furry face. It must have been a great day!

  5. 60 degrees? Hot tub temps 😉 Fiyero explores every puddle when it is 35, and he doesn’t have an excuse: he’s a boxer 😉 It looks and sounds like Rory had a blast on the walk, and that you had a great time on your visit 🙂
