Soaking up the rays

Sam I Am

Recommended Posts

I was looking at some older photo's and came upon this one. Jock and baby Rosie soaking up the warmth. Funny how some dogs love the heat and Jock was one of those to the point where  he would be panting and I would get worried that he would get heat stroke. Rosie isn't a sun worshiper ...a bit goes a long way for her.

Oh, this is so wonderfully familiar, and beautiful.  My babies have always loved the sunshine...even to the point of panting.

And yes, they will sit into the sun well beyond being too warm.  We thought maybe Olie was getting his (arthritic) joints warmed over the last year or so.

I love watching the dogs rearrange themselves in the sun, moving back and forth between 'bake' and shade. Granger stays out in the sun the longest but is also the most likely to play "lion" in the grass. Toasty on top, cool on the bottom, I guess.

Oh what a beautiful photo, they both look so content.  Maisie is another sun worshiper, she'll sit outside on the deck for hours in the winter, in the summer not so much but she will lie there until she begins to pant, then she'll move to the shade.
