Dog Days of Summer

Is there anything sweeter than watching a dog play in the water? Especially when the setting is this beautiful?

Sam, checking it out.

Curecanti National Recreation Area is a place I can go back to over and over again. (And have.) Don’t miss it if you’re visiting Colorado.

Sam, going in. Note the adorable no-tail and butt dimples.

This is why I’m such an evangelist for the National Parks – these beautiful places are everywhere in the U.S. and deserve to be protected, so they can be enjoyed by beings of all kinds.

Sam, shaking off the water. (I’d kill for those muscular thighs. Maybe less fur, though.)

    My all-time favorite National Park is Great Smoky Mountains NP. Every season there is a delight.

      Gypsy – Love the Great Smoky Mountains. I was there for the first time last year, but would happily go back every season if I had the time.

    Hi Deonne – I am receiving two of these each time – probably my fault. I was afraid to unsubscribe lest I be unsubscribed completely. I left a different comment on the other iteration.

    Is it possible for you to delete just one?

    Thank you.

      Judie – I checked and show you as only being subscribed once, under your earthlink address. Did this just start, or has it always been that way? Let me know and I can do some research.

    I miss having a dog around all the time! 🙁 Sam is just so precious.

    Virtual hugs,

      Judie – Thanks for the kind words about Sam. Dogs really are the best companions, no offense to cat people, ha.

    We ( my husband and I ) also LOVE our National Parks. Sam looks like he enjoys every place he goes!

      Shelley – We’re so lucky to live in a country that has so many beautiful places, aren’t we? Yes, Sam is a happy co-pilot.
