norwood's dog days of summer - wet fur - REDUX

it seems norwood's dog days of summer theme for august 10 set of, literally, a storm of wet fur activity. after a morning of wet fur pictures and posts, a massive storm descended on new york city right as we began our mid-day walk. by the time we got back home, the water was coming down in sheets, and we were all soaked. but the rain turned the day from muggy to cool and this, along with watching carlos attack rain drops and bound into gusts of wind, made all the wet clothes and collars worth it. and that would've been the end of the wet fur saga if not for a little love story between a dog and a spray nozzle.

tonight at the dog run carlos became absolutely enamored with the new spray head on the dog run hose. here's some of the evidence:

he even got really good at keeping his head underwater for more than a second or two as he tried to fish out the nozzle. how do puppies even learn how to hold their breath?!

this went on for at least 30 minutes. it was only ever so reluctantly that carlos finally left the run. and then, in the glow of a 24hr parking garage off the west side highway, i took the final themed picture for the day:

wonderful, gleaming, wet furs
carlos had a great day today.
long live the dog days of summer!

  1. I'm visiting because you visited my blog and saw Mabel and Georgie. Carlos looks like a sweet dog. Our Ramsey is a cupcake. Our daughter took him in when he was a puppy. She thought he was a Jack Russell. He was found running around loose in downtown Baltimore.
