dogs and sticks

We went for a walk early in the day yesterday, to get away from the hubbub of renovations at home, and to get some exercise before the day's heat built up.

Penny had a swim to collect a stick we had thrown into the Yarra, and subsequently proudly carried her trophy as she walked. I'd have preferred if she had carried it in a safer manner, not sticking out of her mouth like a cigar.

We thought it was a rather nice stick, but when we saw this dog, we realised Penny is just an amateur in the stick-carrying stakes. (In this photo he has put it down to re-arrange it in his mouth, but I can assure you that he was really carrying it along the path.)

We think Pennys stick is impressive too.

Whoa! Look at the size of his stick! Your haircut looks beautiful, Penny ☺

Love ya lots♥

Lassie and Benji, Penny's stick was just right for her. I can't imagine why that dog wants to heave that mighty great log along the path, lol.

Mitch and Molly, with summer coming here, we had to try to cool Penny down, otherwise I'd have let her lovely long coat keep growing.
