♥ Sun Dogs ♥

The calendar says end of summer, but don't tell that to Karla and Oz !! These happy doberman dogs love to sun themselves on our patio. Yesterday they were so content that I was able to snap a couple of good pictures of them enjoying their basking.

A biting fly was trying to land on her so she was alternating between keeping an eye on it and sniffing the light breeze for any sign of something interesting. Oz is the red doberman. Sometimes I think he is more like a fluffy teddy bear than a big dog, that is until he detects potential trouble. He can create quite the intimidating look when necessary !

I love the warm weather too. Shorts and no coats, sunshine to warm the skin, not a worry in the world as far as snow drifts on the roads. But with the cooler nights and mornings, longer pants and fleece jackets are starting to come out of the closet again. There is something good that happens when it gets cooler though: the mosquitoes, little bugs, biting flys and pesky moths leave us alone again! So this post is dedicated to enjoying the change of seasons here in Colorado, as August turns to September and the cooler temperatures become the norm instead of the unusual.

Awww, they really look so content sitting in the sun. I would feel very secure with them around too.

Wow, I didn't realize summer ended already, but I have to tough it out with the heat till end of October, probably, summers are extra long here.

That picture is just too funny with her tounge out...what was she doing? One word comes to mind:

Nice post and lovely photos...what are your bees doing?

Oh, I had another idea for Karla's picture: Zen dog

because she looks like she is meditating - or giving you the raspberry ;-)
