a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Good Fences on a Hot Summer Day

Far from fresh water the dogs followed me
Here's the fence I crawled under to help find water...
in a dry creek.
Lil, the oldest in this pack, not counting me,
 thought the water should be here.
Lil was walking where water used to be.
I'm not sure she trusted me to find water.
but I did!!! It was a short walk for me...a long run for them.
Every dog was thrilled.
We celebrated and thanked God for leaving us such a treasure.
We headed home.  The pack leader (me) knew some secrets the dogs didn't know. These "dry" creeks carry the run off from rain and wet weather springs but are empty when it gets really dry.  We're not REALLY dry... yet.

Water ... what would we do without it?

That last photo just works so well, how you've blown the background out and focused on the wire ... it's great.

All the best Jan

What a blessing this is! And the water looks so clean and pure, too. I bet they had so much fun!

Bonnie is so cute as she looks up to the sky, like thank you, thank you so much for this beautiful day and water and walking and who knows what running around us! Fun times for all!

That really was a hidden treasure. I'm sure the dogs bumped you up a peg in the pack leader status for finding such a neat place to cool down. Love the reflection.

Just like a treasure hunt for them. Glad they found some sparkling water!

Yikes, one has to be careful when crawling under a fence like that. So happy that the dogs found water and had a good time in it.
