There's a Crocodile in my Pool

My best mate, Smudge came over for a play yesterday. It was such a hot day that we spent alot of time swimming in the pool.

Smudge is a Koolie (an Australian herding breed) and he is a month younger than me.
Smudge lives in the country, and mum reckons he might finally be bigger
than me next time we see him.

I can beat him in swimming races.

And I don't mind sharing my pool toys with him.

Smudge: "Oh crap, Taj is gonna get me!"

But something strange happened to Smudge when he got wet.

He turned into a crocodile!

He didn't actually want any of my toys.

He just didn't want me to have them!

But I'm clever, and I'm quick! He can't keep my toys away from me forever!

And every now and then I made sure I splashed him in the face when I jumped in:)

He's not really as ferocious as he looks, and I can still swim faster than he can!

Mum says I have my first obedience class tonight, and we go back to puppy agility tomorrow, I can't wait!

Woofs and Tailwags,

Turbo Taj

Hey Taj! Smudge looks a little scary in some of those pictures but the rest of the time you two look like you are having fun together. We are glad you have a friend to play with.

Woah, your friend looks fierce in those pictures! Maybe he's jealous that you have a dumbell & he doesn't, kekeke! You're sooo lucky that you have a pool at home...

Love licks,

Yeah, Paris gets that evil look on her face too when I try to steal her toys. hehe

Hi Taj
Your swimming pool looks so cool. We are sweltering over here in QLD except when it's pouring with rain, which has been happening lots since Christmas.
Good on you for getting your toys back from Smudge. This is what my brother, Hobson does to me.
Hope you enjoy your obedience and agility training.
Love from Hammer

Hi Taj-You guys look like you're having lots of fun in the pool!! I've never been in a big pool like that! Your friend smudge looks kinda like me, I guess, except he's not red. What is a Koolie??? I'm a red heeler-are they similar....but he did look mean trying to protect the toys!
