There were only eight dogs and five humans on the Wednesday Walk this week. Karen and her crew were busy with company, and my Charley elected to stay home for some reason. We headed off to Swallowfield. The river is very low after a long dry summer, but not so low that the swimming dogs can't swim and the diving dogs can't dive.
Mary caught this great sequence of Tess diving off the rocks to retrieve the mighty stick:
Ya snooze, ya lose!
The wolfhounds, not water dogs, even ventured into the river for a refreshing wade in the water.
Yum, Yum! Blackberries!
I wish they weren't so prickly!
The humans feasted on the blackberries too, and also on these amazingly sweet little plums, not much bigger than cherries:
And a few other shots of the day:
Hugo and Tess
Does this stick make my butt look big?
