norwood's dog days of summer - wet fur

it's photo contest madness in the village - thanks again to mango and dexter for tipping me off. this time around it's norwood's "dog days of summer" where every day for the month of august there's a new photo theme. the topic for august 10 is "wet fur. "



in this household we have two dogs, one who is extremely excitable about any kind of precipitation, and one who would rather NEVER be wet.

case number 1 - carlos "el amante del agua"
carlos LOVES water - even if it's frozen. he'll frolic in sprinklers, fountains, wading pools, snow, ice, whatever he can find! in the summer we have the extra incentive of wanting to cool off, and carlos always takes full advantage...here he is taking a drink from the park water fountain during an afternoon walk:

technically his lip furs are wet here, so it counts!
and most nights we go hang out in at the wading pools at a local dog run and carlos combines his two loves - tennis balls and water:

specimen numero 2 - bear "not so much aquaphobic, but rather aqua-iratus"
little bear hates the water - but when it's really, really, REALLY hot out, even she will deign to stand in the dog run wading pool and get doused with water:

those people behind me are coming off a latin booze cruise!

it's a miracle folks - two very different dogs, both with very wet fur. amaze with me, and then sit in front of the air conditioner until august ends.
