Swim Party at Molly's House



Only in Southern California can dogs have a swim party in mid February. You can't tell from this picture but Molly's friend is about the best looking German Shepherd I've ever seen, a red and black long hair named Tilden.

His owner my pal Calone (ipetsitla) and I were pressed against the fence because the dogs were maniacs running around with no consideration of party hosts. "Hey don't you know you're not supposed to run around a pool?"

Look at all the water spilled. They looked more like otters than like dogs swimming around.



Unfortunately Molly still stands to learn some social skills. (above)

Got the camera out only at the end of a very funny dog swim party, alas, and the battery was nearly dead.

That Molly!
p.s. Do most dogs like to swim? When I was growing up we had a dog, but she wanted nothing to do with the swimming pool.

I don't know. Our Chow Chows hated pools but would swim in streams. Tilden was a much bolder swimmer than Molly even though it was his first time in this pool.

Looks like you found a great babysitter! Such a nice thing.

Was it the chlorine?

I think that people battling depression should skip their therapy sessions and go watch dogs play together. They're exQUISITely ... merry. Like they invented merriness and being pals and they almost can't stand it, having so much fun.

It's a happy thing to watch happiness.

Lovely comment, boodababy. Hey, I've got you on my blog pal list.

Thank you SO much! (Times two!) I probably should have a blog roll, shouldn't I? Originally, I wanted to encourage visitors to be part of the conversation - and then the internet EXPLODED and people ran out of time and I can hardly stand that in REAL life, much less online. Ha. One day, I'll wake up and be a real luddite. :)

Also, I saw your comment on Linda's blog. Let's! Talk about Sita Sings. We can do it live, online, by phone. Does it make you want to make a flick to play on the super big screen? (I'm sorry she didn't secure rights to the music - that was a surprising mistake, but maybe I just know too many musicians who I wouldn't hesitate to talk into doing a soundtrack. :))

I hope you talk Sita somewhere online so we can "listen." I just saw the trailer yesterday and will get up to speed. As for animated features in general, I've never been keen on seeing them at all! (That doesn't make sense, does it.) 'Specially if they're over 9 minutes 57 seconds in length.

Sally said...

My attention span is shrinking to 4 minutes and under! Peeps send me 14 minute animated films and I just wonder- you really think I'm going to watch all 14 minutes? Isn't that pathetic. Tricky to write about Sita due to google's peeking over your shoulder.

booda baby said...

Me, too! (Or neither) on the length of animations. (Except for CGI ones. I'm good for 80 full minutes on those.) I think sometimes that maybe I suspend disbelief at the drop of a hat, but since animation can't help but announce itself, I'm forced to suspend it over and over and THAT gets exhausting. I still wonder why I struggled with 'Persepolis'...

Mystery, unsolvable.

ANYWAY. I'm so sorry if I sounded so ex- and not INclusive about talking Sita stuff. On particular topics, I like any method of talking about them and then any direction (oddly, technical stuff is verrrry fun for me) - it's the archiving part that's inhibiting.

Oh. I just re-read Sally's remark. Yah. That's how I feel about the google imperial guard. It feels intrusive to my old school mind, even before they get their little algorhythms going ...
