Recipe for Summer Fun

July 6th, 2009

1 medium sized Boy;
1 large Yellow Lab;
1 squirty hose;
Add water;
Stand back!


Imagine the playfulness of that dog in the picture… and then imagine he’s that way no matter where  he is, and that the boy loves  to play with him.  They both have a smile on their faces.  I think watering flowers was the mission, as you can see by the watering can.  But it didn’t work out that way.  It’s like having a 90 pound three year old racing around with an 8-year old boy.  Neither of them listen very well, and both of them are intent on doing something.   Since I’m never quite sure what that is, I usually just direct traffic or try to stay out of the way…

  1. Since I don’t have a dog anymore, I am going to have to be the dog in that picture when my daughter is 8-years old.

  2. Ha! That dog sure looks playful. Which one wears out first, the boy or the dog? :)

    Stay out of the way? How could you resist joining the game?

    I learned a long time ago about small boys and hoses. There’s nothing which can occupy them longer in the summer provided you’re prepared with dry clothes and Kool-Aid when it’s all said and done.


  5. Ed- You’ll have some big paws to fill! I hope you get one some day- I’m not sure anything can replace that interaction…
    Ron- The dogs energy never seems to end… but you’re right, they’re both about even!
    Pamela- It depends on the game… but shortly after this picture the boy managed to get me right in the face! We both got wet… :)
    R.- His enthusiasm reached new heights this week- my cajoling to finish the watering fell on deaf ears. And yes, we needed dry clothes!
