Hello, does Jake swim? My old labradors loved diving into the water to fetch a stick. No photos, LOL. Not taking photos is just not in your blood. Enjoy your day!

Deb said...

Great photos!

Though not extremely hot outside the two of them did seem to enjoy the pool area.

Yikes 60 degree water would be a polar plunge for sure! Great photo of your boys

I was thinking...wow, that's cool to be able to swim in January. That is until I saw the temperature. Whew, really and truly cool! Bob doesn't look too thrilled in that first pic to have his photo taken. :) (I wouldn't have listened, either.)

They are brave to get in that cold water! Looks like they're having a great time together.

I LOVE this, on so many levels! Grumpy man in the first picture, worn down and giving in by the Mad One in the last picture. Perfect. Shows the effects of persistence. And loyal Jake, standing by his side with his stick! This is all Americana Norman Rockwell. You continue to amaze me...

jandi said...

Love that 'almost smile.' I can't even imagine getting into 60-degree water. Those boys of yours are made of sterner stuff than the average Joe!

Ann Thompson said...

Lois said...

Me either! These are great photos though. Looks like they are having fun!

Ruth Hiebert said...

You got some good pictures.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

You should watch your back when the temp warms up for you, Sandra, in case Bob does the same to you with a camera in hand :-) Just saying . . .

From where we live I think we would hope in that pool. It's freezing here.
