Debating forgiveness

Greetings Friends/Fellow Dog-Bloggers....... Once again, I find myself in the position of having to apologize for my Mom being a slacker. Good Grief! It has been over a month... doesn't she think people will wonder if I am still a blogger?!? I mean I know she is busy and doesn't have much time to do anything, but c'mon.... I have to stay up to date with my fellow bloggers.

So anyway, it got VERY HOT here at the Michigan homestead for this time of year .... high 80's and humid ... not a good combination for a large, extremely furry guy like me. To compensate, I sought refuge on the magic opening in the floor................

I can't explain this magic little wooden covered paradise in the floor, but it blows out COLD air! Pure heaven on a very hot day. As I basked in the coolness, I wondered if I could ever forgive my Mom for being such a slacker.... I contemplated for quite awhile....

And then suddenly.... what do I see outside..... my most favorite thing in the whole world ...... ALL IS FORGIVEN MOM, I'm going swimming......

This is my pool..... I haven't seen it in years.... OK, it has only been months, but whatever.... it has been waaaaaaaay too long.

I swim a little and then a good roll in the grass....

And then just some serious relaxing in my pool....

Go ahead Mom, slack away... I'll be out in my pool.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday weekend and that your American Flag is flying!


  1. Hey Dugan;
    Glad to hear from you, but we know Mom's can get very busy. Your pool looks great.
    Tell your Mom you will give her a cookie every time she makes a blog post that should do the trick.

  2. Woof! Woof! No Worries Dugan. It must be a Golden Thing ... I do exactly the same thing with that wooden cover on the floor. This weekend my doggie pool was out in the back yard too. Since it was HOT here too, my mom made some Frosty Paws (she'll post the recipe on Tuesday). Good to hear from you. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  3. Those have to be two of the bestest inventions!

  4. We were wondering if you were coming back! Yay! Our magic holes in the floor were broken last week--can ya believe it? The pooches were ok, but I (mom) barely survived the ordeal. And NO ONE got me a pool, either! Hrmphhh!

  5. It looks like you are having a very relaxing summer! I think Sam would like to have one of those magic floor opening - he has his own personal fan for the very hot days!


  6. Dugan -

    Welcome back. We understand. If only we had thumbs are blogs would be updated DAILY. That pool looks pretty cool. I may have to try one this summer!
