This was so AMAZING!

I really have to share this with everyone,because it is really amazing photography of a never, ever seen before naturally occuring event, that happened last week when mum and dad took me and Tia done to dragonfly river for a long walk.

It got quite hot on our walk, and Tia (who dosn't like to do much, she's a couch potato cat-dog - that is, except for the fact that she can bark, she is more like a cat than a dog), anyhoo, she was hot and got a bit fed up by the end and tried to sit down in the middle of the path because she didn't want to move anymore.

Me on the other hand, I had plenty of energy coz I knew we were heading down to the river so I could cool off and have a swim. But the absolutely amazing, never-ever- seen-before by anyone in the whole wide world thing was that Tia (yes my Shar-Pei, cat-dog water hating sister) actually went in the water and flopped down in it!

I didn't really pay much attention (too busy chasing dragonflies and swimming) but mum and dad were very shocked and mum was so glad that she had taken the little camera with her to record the never-ever-seen-before event!

Here is the evidence that Tia willingly, of her own violition got wet!
Of course, I was too busy doing this to pay Tia much attention!

Tia being rude and ignoring mum and dad for draggin her out for a walk in the coutryside.

Tia "How could you do anything that would *make* me go in water?"

And of course, a blog post wouldn't complete without some photos of me!

Woofs and buttsniffs!

Oh wow, I didn't know Tia hates water until now. I guess, she finally got fed up of the heat & just thought, "What the heck! It's either getting dried up into a jerky or not!" So, she decided to go into the water & lie down to cool off herself. Good Tia! Hopefully now, she will begin to like water. Great pics!

BOL! Maybe it was that lunar eclipse the other night and the 'tides' have changed! Sure looks like loads of fun to me - I'd be in there in a minute.

Woofs, Johann

Johann I think you might be right, thats the only sensible explanation for Tia's behviour! She assures me that it is not likely to happen again, and she certainly did not appreciate mum putting her in the pool afterwards (the other best thing about the river is that you come home smelling like a swamp dog, so mum makes me take a swim in the pool before I am allowed in the house. Tia didn't like that swim!

I would love to have a great big dog party down at the river, although I might not play too much, I get to busy chasing dragonflies!

Your sister, Tia, sounds like just my type. Likes to meditate and sit in the water (none of that swimming stuff, way too much effort).

Dear fellow blogger,

My name is Bryony and I am an artist, based in Manchster, England. I graduated from a BA in Fine Art almost a year ago now, and am currently making a go of things as a (part-time!) artist, having just rented a studio here in Manchester.

My work is heavily influenced by man’s relationship with animals.
Recently I have become fascinated by the number of blogs online dedicated to pet dogs.

I have an idea in mind for a show, which would happen in early May this year, and I would like you to be a part of it!

What I plan to do with this art work is to demonstrate the depth and rich complexity of our love of animals, man’s best friend in particular. The work would involve the use of a piece of text from your blog (with your permission, of course).
I think this will be a lovely project – it will be fun, and will unite dog-lovers around the globe!

If you would be willing to take part, or for more information, please contact me through the email address above. Feel free to have a look at my previous art work on my blog.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, it is much appreciated and I hope to hear from you soon.

Best Wishes,

Now I know what I should have done after I supervised Dad in the garden - Mom put some pics on the web site - just to show who is boss when it comes to digging around.
