On to happier things…

Alright so I figured we would move on to a more light topic after all the recall posts. I am sure you all are sick of hearing about it all by now, honestly I am.  So on to some Luna phone pics!

First off she could not stay out of a panoramic shot I did at the river so you should go check that one out on my Photo Blog . She has a habit of photo bombing my photos, but usually I don’t mind.
Now on to the iPhone photos… many courtesy of Instagram, some of you may have already seen these if you follow AKGInspiration on Instagram… pardon the repeats.

The weather has warmed up, which means I am trying to get the pups to spend more time outside…  this became much more enjoyable when I dug out this old bed to put out there.  Everyone enjoys laying on it, it is really hard to get pics of it though as they always get up when I come out the door.  If you are new to the blog, that white German Shorthair is Dover, one of Luna’s buddies.

Sometimes the bed is just not good enough for Luna though… she enjoys a higher vantage point, yep she jumped up there on her own, silly girl. (this photo is probably a repeat but I love it)

I have been trying to make the most of some of this nice weather by getting Luna out (and wyatt when I can).  Here is a photo from an outing to one of our old haunts.  On the left we have a rather young deer.. on the right is Luna practicing her down stay so I could go back and get the photo of said deer.   After discovering this deer she ran even harder and searched all the tall grass for more.  I love finding critters on our walks for this very reason.

We checked out all sorts of new woods locations too on our hunt for deer sheds.. I love that we are all looking at something, and I love that I can now get wyatt to get up on objects to join in the photos.  For the longest time he would just sit on the ground while Luna hopped on the log/wall/rock I asked.  The whole idea of jumping/climbing on things has come a little slower for him.  But now he can keep up pretty well in the woods hopping over fallen trees and logs pretty easily.

We have also been checking out our local haunts along the river, though I think we all are getting rather bored of this location.  How do you mix things up while at your regular haunts? I find the dogs don’t run as hard if they have been there a lot already, which for my sanity is not good as it means that Luna comes home totally un-tired.  Suggestions? I think I might need to dig out the bike again.

What I really need to do is go get my fishing pole… because swimming is one of the easiest ways to wear the pups out.  And results in photos/naps like the one above, which is a GOOD thing.  I typically wade out into the river and will fish while the dogs swim and explore.  Oh and another added bonus to these river outings??? I just got a new waterproof camera to use on these adventures.

All of these outings result in a rather dirty dog, which usually I don’t mind but sometimes it does require the dreaded bath.  Luna is not a big bath fan, despite the fact that she is a regular fish in the rivers she does not care for baths.  No shock there considering she hates anything having to do with health/upkeep. I do love the smell of a nice clean Vizsla much more than a Vizsla who smells slightly of pee.  Yes you heard me right pee.  Due to her awesome ability to walk on her two front feet while peeing, she now ends up peeing on her front feet while doing so.  Not cool chica.

My clean girl ready to go have her post-bath crazies.

No doubt she probably will get all kinds of dirty again tomorrow when we go romp in the woods with her buddy Bosley.  And after we wear the dogs out, my friend and I are heading to the river for my first adventure with a kayak!  Who else has some fun weekend plans???

      thanks, don’t let her fool you she as usual got good treats, and with her short coat baths never take long. It is not a flattering pic of me but I am always happy to have photos with me in them for a change. have a great weekend

  2. Oooh, that river panoramic is gorgeous! I really love the last picture of Luna too, with the towel. Amber gets the post bath crazies too. And also hates baths and also loves to swim and ALSO hates anything to do with health upkeep, nails, etc…
    Fun, a kayak trip! I have never been, I am a little afraid of the water.
    We don’t have any big plans, just hike with the dogs I’m sure.

      Thanks, I need to remember to do more panoramics, they are such fun. Funny how similar our girls are. Once they get something in their head that they don’t like it is really hard to convince them that it’s not the end of the world. She is the same way about dog boxes in the truck… she does not like to ride there in them, but often will jump right in for the ride home.

      I will let you know how the kayak trip goes, going to take the dogs to the river to swim first. Enjoy your weekend!

  5. Great pics…can’t believe she is peeing on her toes…silly girl. Love that Wyatt is starting to climb and explore with a little help from his red headed friend!! I hate the chore of bath day, but I sure do love the results of squeaky clean dogs. 🙂
