Mischief Monday - A New Trick

The only real mischief this week is that as Lady tries to adjust to the old-new world of actually working while maintaining some of the healthy habits (mainly a reduction in screen time which is hard because most of her work now involves a screen) , she has not been to visit you all. We are hopefully over the next couple of weeks we can create a better routine.

Now Phod will share his new trick.

The air is now hot enough to make our peeps think that swimming in the lake is a good idea. As you all know, I love to fetch on land and water. In the water, my preference is to stand at the shore and run into the lake while my peeps stand on the shore. I will not swim out with my bumper and chase it in. My peeps have been teaching me to come up the dock and jump in from there.

Dropping my bumper for the Man

 I don't love it, but I will do it to humour them.

Walk up the dock past the neighbour's boat

Get ready to chase it! 

Make a big splash

Swim back with it

What do you think of my new trick?

    Well, I'm impressed, Phoddy... how many times do you do that before looking for another thing to do??? Hugs and wags YAM-aunty xxx

  2. Wild clapping and a standing ovation! We can't even get big boy to put one paw all on top step of the pool

  3. Phod can you hear me clapping? Well done and Oh how refreshing that water must be
    Hugs Cecilia

  4. Wow! You're sure a brave doggie! I don't know if I would do that.

  5. I have to report that Gail is glowing green with envy at the sight of Man swimming in that gorgeous lake.
    Oh yes, and well done Phod. Clever trick.
    Toodle pip!

  6. It's a wonderful trick, Phod, and the best thing about it is that you stay cool in these doG-awful temps!

  7. Well done, Phod! That looks like a way to keep nice and cool on these toasty hot days.

  8. Wow Phod, this is pawsome, what a brave boy you are!

  9. That looks like fun and it certainly is a great way to keep cool in the summer heat.

  10. That is the best trick ever, Phod! Enjoy that cool water as much as you can!!!!

  11. We think it is a great trick, Phod. And that splash of water bubbles is amazing. We also saw a great action shot of you on Instagram!!!

  12. Looks like a good way to cool off!

  13. I think that trick is INCREDIBLE! Great job, P. I am afraid of water, so it is the MOST amazing for me to watch.

    Love and licks,
