It Is Hot Outside

It is really hot outside. We were in the low hundreds today.

We stayed inside most of the day but went to the dog park early on. Here is a good picture of Lucy and Kona taking a quick swim in the river at the dog park in Shirleyton, VA. Well Lucy is watching Kona take a swim. Most of the time Kona forgets she is a Labrador Retriever and thinks she is human being, but not today. It is good to see the dog in her come out.


Here is another picture from the vacation. This is from Crater Lake in Central Oregon. They have chipmunks there that are very used to being feed by humans. They are not very afraid at all of coming right up to you. We even saw some chipmunks eat right out of people's hands.
We are on the a dock on an island in the middle of Crater Lake. It is the purest water I have ver seen. If you ever get a chance to go, do it, you will not regret it.

Back From Vacation

Michelle and I just recently got back from our vacation to Central Oregon. Michelle and I are both avid hikers and this one of the great water falls we happened upon while we were gone.
Michelle is really getting into nature photography and getting pretty good at it.
Lucy and Kona stayed in a dog boarding facility while were gone. They seemed to really enjoy it and actually acted a little wierd when they came home. It took them a couple of days getting used to being back home.
I think it was partly because of the great care they got at The employees there are awesome and you could really tell that they love dogs. If you live in the greater DC area, specifically in the Arlington or Alexandria, check them out.
