    The park system that runs near my house has two little lakes at the farthest end of the walkway. If I go down and back it's about 8 Km or 5 miles. As this morning was cool we went the whole trail. Even on a cool summer morning, I brought along her water bottle with the drinking trough. After we got home I set out the sprinkler. Willow doesn't know what to make of it.

    The lake:

    Piper is fanatical about water (as is Finnie but not to the extent of Piper)...I got him to like it by moving the hose around. This is him at 2 years old, roughly when he started to go after it. Now on a hot day I just turn on the sprinkler and he runs through it until he's soaked!

    Will have to try a sprinkler!

    PS - that video of Piper is a hoot - almost as if he is on fast forward, but he's not!

    I knew I had more video's...here's Piper last summer. He's an old hat at it now and Finnie learning the ropes from Piper lol. You need a sprinkler lol (or a hose to get them started).



    And speaking of fast forward lol...should be his nickname with water involved!

    Thank you for the morning giggle with my coffee - that last video is a riot. I watched it a few times, he's such a riot to watch!
