Dog Days of Summer- LILLY, ENGLISH BULLDOG This is Lilly, our families beloved English Bulldog. Mostly all bulldogs can NOT swim and Lilly is one of them. They sink like a rock because of the enormous head which makes them top heavy. We wanted to cool Lilly off in the Texas heat so here is a picture of her with a life jacket on. She looks uncomfortable, but actually loved it.

Dog Days of Summer Baily from North Dallas hates the water or being wet. She has plenty of A/C, and a king size bed, but manages to work on her tan each day for 5 minutes a side before scratching her back in the grass and heading back inside.

pictures - 1 for dog days of summer and 1 for rainbow from my front yard at 730pm Thursday evening The picture of the dog is Luna, my daughter's corgie/lab mix, who discovered the creek a few days ago. For a solid hour, she ran and swam and dove non-stop. I even have a small video of her if you could use it. Happiest dog on Earth that day. The second picture was from my front yard in Lancaster on Thursday evening around 730 pm. Please note, it did not rain all day, yet we had a beautiful rainbow. Awesome!

Dog Days of Summer These are pics of Trixie, an almost 2 year old Morkie She is at lake Lavon at least once a week with me and my girlfriend, Marlena.The life jacket is a necessity because she will be in the water at some point from either falling in or jumping in. She loves the water, but for some reason she hates the safety bouys that mark no wake and do not enter zones. She barks at them constantly anytime we are near one of these. Frank Hudson
