Lily Pond Play

A few weeks ago Chris and I took Linus and Astro out to the Lily Pond for some water play after an agility practice.  The boys were ready to go as it was a warm day.

The "Lily Pond" is actually called Dow Spring and I think the lilies were originally brought in a very long time ago, maybe by the Dow family that originally settled there.  I've been visiting here since I was a kid and the lilies have always been there.  This is the view looking down the canyon.

Astro says "Yipee!!!  I get to run and bounce in super tall green grass!!!"  I love the way his ears are bouncing up and he is smiling in this picture.

Linus took his first swim in May.  Here, he just decided to go in for a dip on his own.  I wish Astro would have followed him.

Linus goes after the stick.  What a good boy!  Astro would also get the stick when it was a little closer to shore.

Astro spent a lot of time flying through the grass and spinning around.

Astro and Linus are great friends.  Kind of like Zephyr and Friday (Linus' big brother) are great friends.  They had a lot of fun chasing each other and then cooling off in the water.

The beautiful view looking up the canyon.  Of course, with a happy greyhound in it, the view is much better!

I agree, the view is definitely enhanced with a Greyhound! That looks like so much fun!
