dog pictures Hi! My name is Nicole Liudahl and I'd like to submit these photos of my puppy, Milo, for the news. He is a morkie, which is a maltese and yorkie mix. The first photo is of Milo after playing fetch outside in the Dallas heat this summer, he was very hot. The second is of Milo's first time in a pool. He was very scared, and was happy that he had his life-jacket on. He didn't want to stay in very long and decided he'd rather go inside. Thanks! From, Nicole Liudahl

Dog days of summer We don't have a pool or a boat. The water hose and White Rock lake are the best we can do. We're getting tired of seeing the rich and famous dogs of summer. Sara (black lab) and Gretchen (sheppard) in the back yard get wet down each after noon, and have come to barking each day until they get to play in the water. Bob
