Sunday is for Swimming!

It is FINALLY nice enough to take the boys swimming! We had a BLAST today, and got quite a few spectators while we were playing in the lake!

(you can click on any of the pics to bigify--the first one is especially funny of Gus!)

Mango said...

Gosh! I was all excited about my new pool until I saw that you guys got to go swimming in an actual pond! I am totally jelly.


Noah the Airedale said...

Crikey Waldo, you sure are the athletic type hehe. Good jump there mate!!
You two must have been popular with the spectators!!

My sister just started feeding her danes Eagle Pack... I'd have to drive about 45 miles to get it but I may try it. So far we're doing ok on Wellness but I'm still looking for a more permanent. *Thank you* so much for the info! I almost feel like I won't be satisfied until I end up cooking food but that just seems a bit extreme! Ooooh the saga... :)

PS, loved the pics in this post!!!

You have two beautiful dogs. I am partial to Great Danes. He looks like he is full of life and a wonderful dog. My Lucy is 5 and still has tons of energy.

Stella said...

Gus is so gorgeous, I love the last pic of him, sort of wet looking. But Waldo's leap would certainly be a crowd-pleaser!


Thor said...

Hi Guys, you had a pawsome time playing in the lake! Your pictures are great! That picture of Gus is very cool!


AppleDebbie said...

Oh boy... it looks like you two had a great time playing in the water! All of the pics are terrific but the shot of Waldo jumping into the water is amazing. You rock Waldo!!

Your Pal,

Dennis the Vizsla said...

That's a great flying leap into the lake!

Nibbles Treats said...

Can you believe how hot it was here this past weekend? Our family had to turn on the air conditioning in the house was the internal temp reached 84 degrees! We should have come and played with you guys in the lake. Looks like fun!

Air Waldo!

KC said...

Wow, Waldo's face looks so handsome! He reminds me of my Princeton, except your Waldo is pure merle (mine has white markings). So he eats 10 cups a day?! I thought Princeton ate a lot at 8 cups a day!

Ludo van Doggy said...

BOL! Ruffruff! What a great time they had! Beautiful piccures and I especially like the one of Waldo jumping in!

Brownie said...

Wow! You sure get high up in the air, Waldo! I'm still kinda skerred of water...

The Army of Four said...

Oh, WALDO! I LOVE the picture of you in full jump! That's amazing! You boys are both so handsome!

Maggie and Mitch said...

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, we love that picture of you flying through the Aire before you hit the water, Waldo! Awesome pictures!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

The PR Gang said...

WOW!! Waldo looks like a seasoned dock diver in that pic! Great shot.
Nice to hear your weather is improving. We all love swimming too!

Amber and Nala said...

Pawesome pictures....I didn't know you could fly so high Waldo!!! WOW!


Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh my God - how on earth did you learn to jump like that, Waldo???? Please tell me! I thought all Danes were water-wimps but you look like a top champion dock dog! It's taken my humans 5 yrs to convince me to WADE in did you ever learn to jump in like that? My human always wishes I could do that - like the Labs and other dogs do - and she is always throwing things in the water to try and get me to do it - I usually dip one paw in and then shrink back and then look hopelessly at the floating toy from the shore...

Brandon, Ashley, and baby Stella said...

I don't think Waldo could be any happier than he is in that jumping picture. His face looks like he's got a big smile on his face! At least he's not jumping ON TOP of Gus this time like he did at the Dash n' Splash!

The OP Pack said...

Your pictures are always so good. Love that face on Gus and look at how high Waldo can go!!!

Woos, the OP Pack

Tee said...

Wow Gus and Waldo that's some great shots of your guys swimming. Am admiring the one with Waldo in the air about to hit the water. Amazing shot. Your mommy's a fantastic photographer. What camera does she use? Must be a real fast one ...

My name is Kristen and I have a great dane puppy (almost 7 months old now) named Nitro. I was wondering if you have some free time if you could email me about if Waldo always was that crazy about water or what you did to get him to love it so much (that Jumping picture is great!). My email is

You don't need to post this...I just couldn't find any other way to contact you. :)
