Spring and Sprinklers

close up of cabana standing in the midst of tall grass, dotted with pink, purple and yellow wildflowers, cabana is sticking her nose out like she's sniffing the flowers, her face has water droplets from the morning dew

Mmmmm, wildflowers smell nice, especially when they're wet with morning dew.


cabana sniffing a low-to-the-ground plant with interesting green and white striped leaves, the leaves are shaped sort of like big dandelion leaves, but there are sharp thorny prickles all along the edges
These things, however, do not smell nice, and they hurt my tootsies. Sometimes, I get stuck out in the grass when these prickly plants are in my path. I stand there and give Mom my "help me" expression,
then Mom has to come over and show me how to get away from them.


Thankfully, there are more flowers and grass than prickles. But those prickly plants are spreading fast,
so I'll just smell the daisies while I can.


cabana and a chocolate lab puppy standing in a field of grass, three big sprinklers are shooting out water
Yesterday, while I was playing with my chocolate lab buddy, Latte, the sprinklers came on!


cabana and latte both have their heads down in the grass, ignoring the sprinklers
We thought it was cool, but for some reason, we didn't run through them. We decided to just pretend to be cows, grazing in the grass. We're puppies, so we don't have to make sense.

Mimi, I love the pictures, but especially your last line, "we're puppies, we don't have to make sense"...that just about sums it up!! :) Does Cabana have a new red collar? It's cute!

OOOOOO, air water. That's the best kind of water there is! :)

Chelsie would have been through those in a heartbeat. My "CHELSIE COME" recall can pull her off the wrong agility obstacle..but I don't think it would do much to get her out of the sprinklers!!!

Hey ya!! Those yucky pricly weeds...are all over our backyard! Mom has a handle on them sometimes, but they creep and grow so fast!!!
Hey! We passed by the salvage yard yesterday...dropping a friend off in P. Pretty cool stuff in there.

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

You have the life, Cabana! And indeed, you are a puppy and it doens't need to make sense. Super cute and sounds like another delightful time with your friend!

Not sure we could have avoided playing in those sprinklers.
