Time To Get Wet... Or not...

If Lucy could talk, she would probably tell you that one of her favorite things (if not her favorite thing) about summer is being able to play in the water from the garden hose.

Lucy can be at the very bottom of the yard when I turn on the house, and she'll be there in a flash!

I'm pretty sure that deep down Lucy believes that the sole purpose of the hose is to provide her with entertainment! I don't know about that, but she always provides me with plenty of entertainment when I turn on that hose! She has no problem sticking her whole head right in the stream of the running water.

Duke on the other hand, is not sure about getting wet. But, with a little bit of coaxing from his little sister, he decided he would give it a try.

Of course, she had to show him how it was done first, and then stand there on the side lines making sure that he did it right.

It was funny how Duke struggled to get to the water, but clearly didn't want any of it getting on his face. I could tell he was taking great measures to make sure that his whole entire face didn't get wet. And Lucy was completely confused, clearly she thought he was missing out on the best part of the whole hose game.

It's just incredible how different my two boxer kids are, but how well they get along with one another.


  1. It is funny how they're different. We're all different, too. Guess that's what makes us US.

  3. That is sweet. Our dogs are just the opposite. The minute the hose goes on they are headed for the house. We tried to get them to drink from a hose at the Whisker Walk and they fled.

  4. We are the same way! I don't mind getting wet and will go into our baby pool on my own, but Owen will not go in and runs away from getting wet! BOL

  5. I don't like to get my face wet either but Nikki is a fish!!
