Wow, it's hot!

It's finally hit summer, and we've had a week or so now of >25*C days. It's unusual for it to be so long before warming up!

We've spent quite a bit of time at Martha's over the past while. Here's an older video of West and Sunny playing:

Bonus points to anyone who knows what I'm watching in the background.

And here's a pretty laid back video of West and Ruby from last month:

This is how we keep cool in the heat. Normally, by this time of year, this pond is all dried up!

Photographing running dogs in weeds is tough..

But West is sure cute...

He still mostly waits on shore for Archie to come out. He's nervous of being in over his head..

In action: (sorry for the poor videographer skills. Throwing the disc into the pond is tough. Throwing it while videoing is tougher)

Once everyone's soaked through, we can play on the dry land...

Where I get an awful lot of shots like this...

But the odd nice one..

I love how the sun causes the dogs to squint, making them look more relaxed.. almost like they're friends!

West played briefly with Sage, a golden pup, yesterday. He was uninterested in meeting the people with Sage (I think the giant flying super-golden-retriever may have distracted him). He did very well.

A few days ago, he was out when I needed to go down to my neighbours. Neighbour is a man. He didn't approach, but also didn't bark or lunge when my neighbour moved towards him. He came into a new building, laid down with me when I sat on the floor, and watched/heard some kind of rotary cutting tool just a few feet away from us. The first time, he was worried. The second time, he watched with curiosity! I held him, as it's dangerous for him to be very close and I didn't want him to get hurt, but he was quite comfortable with it the second time!

And, just to add some cuteness to your day.. I'm fostering a mom and kittens..
