To Battle with the Garden Hose

The weather was really nice today, about 26C (78F) in the sun. So we took advantage of the weather and had a bit of a play time outside in the yard. Both boys LOVE fighting with the garden hose, so out it came. Gio prefers the nozzle attachment while Romeo prefers the oscillating ground thingy (yes, that is the technical term!).

Here's a fun (albeit poor quality) video of Romeo herding the water sprinkler.

The beast in action!

I then switched to the nozzle so that Gio could play his games.

Resulting in a very wet pooch.

Little prince charming doesn't like his face wet (just try to keep him away from water, though!), so insists on drying it off on anything handy. Today, some of the Cosmos in the flower bed seemed appropriate.

Nothing like a good shake.

Time for me to go inside and change into some dry clothes myself!

Hey, you guys look like you were having so much fun. Hmmmm I don't get it though, you and Ricky the Sheltie both seem to love the sprinkler, I hate even getting my feet wet.....after all that is what bridges were invented for, so we don't get wet feet :)

BOL! These photos are great! We've never tried playing in the sprinklers.... we usually put our ears down when it rains so I'm not sure if we would like it!

You guys look adorable wet!

Looks like you guys had a great time! I do love the hose and the sprinkler too! Wish we could all play together!

Hey guys! Happy to see you are bloggy doggy's too! I love reading up on new dog adventures! The sprinkler looked I guess...if you like water...which I don't! BOL!




You sure look like you had a pawsome time. We hate getting wet too. Though oddly we don't mind the rain.
