Photo by myself, in Prospect Park, Brooklyn.
After a cat on leash, here's a dog in a pond.
Thursday was insanely hot and humid. Our pup Rupert enjoys a good swim in (smelly) pond water.
In fact, 'swimmin' is a word he understands. He also knows 'carrot', 'chicken', 'outside', 'friend' and 'wanna'. The last word is used in sentences like 'You wanna chicken treat?' and 'You wanna go swimmin'??!'
Rupert did not take to swimmin' easily. He doesn't have much fur or fat to buoy himself up, so he stays in the shallows while other dogs romp and doggy paddle.
Yes, I know it's lazy to post a photo of one's dog when one can't find a suitable photo to post. But how could I resist such a face?
Happy Friday, everyone!
