Hard to beat a black lab. Here's another lake pic of mine. You gotta love dog threads.

Our old wiener dog Judy's favorite toy is a bottle cap. Two pictures, one outside with bottle cap, the other a scary nightime picture with bottle cap.

Thanks! She does love the water. Amazing how it cools and perks her up on a long walk. The lake shown here is around a 4 mile walking trail. She swims all along the way an easily makes the hike, even on a hot day. On another walk we take where she does not have the opportunity to swim, she drags towards the end and it is only 2 miles in length.

Yeah.... I drifted away. SO is happily ER'ed for the present, and I've found that it makes working so much nicer for me, because I don't have to do all the housekeeping, etc. in addition to working. He's installed a hot tub, and is also busy building an addition to the house.
I'm going to keep working a little longer for the health insurance, and to make sure my stash isn't ravaged by market crashes and inflation.

In order to avoid hi-jacking this thread I offer this additional Milo Picture, taken on our great RV trip last summer:

Jake (the big one...he found us when he was fully grown so no puppy pics) likes to go out when its 100 and lays on his back in the grass in the full sun. Wacky dog.

All is not as it seems in this photo. Dog owner slipped the guy a couple of bucks to watch her pup while she went inside to get burgers-to-go.

Hey, thats the kind of part time job I could do. I bet if he put out a tin can, he could pick up a few extra bucks while he doggy sits.
