|I had a brand new batch of tennis balls that|
Theo has been wanting to sink his teeth into.
I took Theo and Penelope out to the pasture. They are the two biggest dogs around here and they need exercise. I left them on their own for a while as I was mowing the dog yard. About the time I finished and went to join them, it began to rain.
Rain was a welcome respite even if it didn't last long and only served to raise the humidity. We enjoyed it while it lasted. After the big dogs had romped for a while, I brought the pups, Jess and Bella over to the dog yard and played with them until the rain picked up enough to drive me back inside.
FYI: The title of this post is a reference to "The Art of Racing in the Rain." It's a great book, the kind of book I wish I had written.
|If one is good, two must be better.|
|Penelope looked at the balls, but that was it.|
|She even watched Theo go after them but did not|
join in, in spite of the fact that she loves to run.
|When you need a break from running, bobbing for tennis|
balls is fun too.
|Penelope enjoyed the cold, fresh water, but still|
had no interest in the tennis balls.

|Jess and Bella playing tug.|
|Bella always prevailed in the tug.|
|Jess didn't care, he just likes to play along.|
|Jess got it first this time.|
|Whether or not she's first, Bella gets it in the end.|
|Nothing tastes better than cold fresh water on a hot day.|
|If it tastes good, it feels even better.|
