Chris and I were spending time in the backyard with the dogs, and I decided to pull out my Panasonic Lumix FZ-200 and take some pictures. The star of the show turned out to be—as it almost always is—our goofy boxer, Apollo. Click on the photos for the hi-res versions.
Apollo has this little hard plastic ball that was once a baby toy. He goes full-goose loony whenever he plays with it. Giving it to him is a good way to get him to play himself to exhaustion.
Titus, my big, old, lazy, dumb galloot.
Titus is also a bit…slobbery.
Apollo has a very long tongue. The more he plays with his ball, the longer it gets.
Apollo is not only obsessive about his ball, he’s obsessive about playing with water. So, once he gets himself overheated by playing with the ball, we can cool him down by letting him play with the hose. The rest of the pictures show Apollo’s um, complicated relationship with the hose.
Our lives would be a lot emptier without these guys.
