lazy Labour Day

It was the last long weekend of the summer and we spent it at home. After a hot spell that lasted a week and culminated yesterday with scorching heat and high winds (yuck, remind me to stay away from deserts), there was a noisy thunderstorm in the middle of the night that brought cooler temps today. The late summer days when the sun is bright and the air has a hint of coolness are my favorites. Today was one of those days.

The dogs and I spent some time in the back yard.

Austin has been busy blowing all of his undercoat this summer. He looks like half the dog he was before.

Robbie still has all of his coat.

Have I mentioned that shelties like to talk? A lot?
Notice the swishy tail - yup, talking is fun.

It was hard to get a picture of Bentley because he was so busy checking everything out and finding good smells. He deigned to look back over his shoulder when I called him.

And then there's Pocus.
I swear that dog could have had a career in modeling. He looks pretty darn good for a 12 year old dog, doesn't he?

You've got some fine looking dogs there with some gorgeous dog fur for spinning, especially the shelties.
