I think they like to pose for photos.
As soon as I open the door, Gunnar and Mischa come to greet me. When I start to do anything on the island, they are both there with me.
We got in our play time today and also some grooming. Gunnar enjoyed the grooming the most.
It is a pleasure and a joy to be with and care for Gunnar and Mischa.

What a handsome guy on top of my paperwork!

A capture with intensity.

Mischa jumped on her tunnel to catch DaBird.
It was play time and we had a lot of fun.
We played with DaBird, the figure 8, a box and Mischa was chasing Greenies.

"It's mine now and I'm not letting it go!"

After play time, Gunnar and Mischa had a spot of catnip.

Gunnar after a little grooming.
After eating and some play, we settled in for some grooming.
Gunnar liked getting his fur combed.
Mischa allowed me to comb her for awhile and then wanted to play with the comb.

Gunnar playing with DaBird.
We got a lot of play time with DaBird today.
After all the fun, we had some hands-on lovin’ and then Greenies for a treat.
All is well with Gunnar, Mischa and your home.

Gunnar and Mischa gave me a warm greeting when I arrived. They remembered me and we spent several minutes saying hello again.
I had extra time available today so we played for a long time, mostly with the figure 8 and DaBird. We got in some grooming and they relaxed after play time. Gunnar even took a cat nap for a few minutes.

Luke lying in the shade beside the deck,
Luke is so into playing that he would probably keep going until he dropped.
I try to get him to relax and take a break every few minutes, especially when it’s very hot.
in the yard,
Here are a few photos during break times.
Luke is such a well-behaved gentleman. We have had lots of fun together during our play time and walks.
again in the yard,
and on the deck.
When Luke carries the frisbee this way, I imagine the big red comic lips.
My buddy Luke.

After lots of playing, a quick doze in the grass is nice...
We had some rain today. It had a welcomed cooling effect.
The rain and running for a frisbee made the yard a bit muddy. Thanks for leaving towels out for us.
When we took our evening walk, the weather was very pleasant. We took a longer route and I think Luke was tired and probably slept well.
...until some noise attracts our attention.

Okay, you know it’s been hot when you think it is getting cool and it’s still in the high 80′s!
We are getting our fair share of play time in and Luke has been showing off his athleticism.
Mid-day today, after we were out playing, we both came in and had a nap. I took the couch and Luke took the floor beside it. It was just what we both needed!
"See, I told you I could balance it on my nose!"

Luke has a regal look, doesn't he?
We had another hot day. It really limits how long we can play outside. Luke is always up for more though!
We walked after dark and extended the distance. A tired dog is a happy dog.
Everything is good around the house.
