Keeping Cool Pictures–Part 2

Here are the last of the pictures we received for the “Keeping It Cool” Organic Hound Co. contest!  If you missed yesterday’s post for the first half of the pictures, click here.  Be sure to click on everybody’s name to go visit their blogs.

Here we go!!

Roscoe looks like he could be a litter mate of Riley’s, doesn’t he?  He is also 2 years old!  Hmm…long lost brother perhaps?  🙂  Anyway, Roscoe is an Australian Cattle Dog lucky enough to get to swim in a pool (Riley’s totally jealous, by the way)!

Khyra (AKA “Miss Floofy Tail”) is a Husky gal who told us she likes to visualize herself in the snow when it’s a really hot day.  Smart thinking, huh?

Benny and Lily are two French Bulldogs living in sunny California.  They look like they’re all ready for their “puparazzi” photo shoot on the beach and chilling at the pool!

My mom insisted on submitting Chloe’s picture in the contest!  Here’s Chloe enjoying playing in the hose (notice we still had grass in the backyard at this point…this was in our pre-Riley days!).

Gibson is a Siberian Husky–who has 4 Sibe siblings!  (We don’t know how his mom handles all the dog hair, but she does!).  Here he is cooling off under the sprinkler.

Clem is another Labradude that entered the contest.  He doesn’t have a blog, but it sure looks like he could share some fun adventures if he did have one!  We love his smile!

We just love Maggie Mae the Boxer (maybe because Riley’s cousins are two Boxers–don’t worry, I’m not judging the contest, so my favoritism has no effect on the winners…hehe!).  🙂  She likes to stay cool by hanging out in the shade under a tree and she has her very own personal water fountain!

And last, but most definitely not least, is Miss Sugar, the Golden Retriever!  She went on a canine architectural boat tour in Chicago and this picture is of her cooling off after that boat ride with some ice water to drink.  She always has a Golden Smile on her face!
We had lots of fun seeing everybody’s pictures of how they like to stay cool (and Riley has gotten a few ideas from everyone)!  We’ll announce the winners tomorrow and post more information about getting your prize!
P.S.– You’ll never believe what woke me up at 2:30 in the morning…52 lb. Riley was under my bed!  She hasn’t been able to fit since she was a puppy…I guess she just squeezed her way under there.  Of course, her getting back out from under there shook the entire bed like an earthquake!  I don’t know what possessed her to climb under there.  Silly.

Attention on Me

Pretty Girl!!
Sorry we’ve been MIA lately around Blogville.  I’m kind of blogged out for right now, so I might take a break and just post here and there.  I’ll try to keep up with your blogs but can’t promise anything.  Riley’s Aunt Baddy (my sister) just had some minor surgery yesterday, so I’ve been taking care of her.  She is doing well, so no worries.  In other exciting/slightly scary news…I’m getting braces on my teeth on Monday!  Yes, I’m 25, but it’s never too late to improve your smile!!  🙂

Wanna See More of Riley’s Pictures?

Of course you do!!  🙂

The photographer posted a link to her blog on her Facebook page this afternoon.  She had some nice things to say about Riley!  Here’s the link to the blog post on Amy Jenkins Photography Blog.  Check it out!

The photographer, Amy, was great!  She didn’t even freak out when Riley came towards her when she had her camera to her face (she called Riley’s name and she had a treat, so I can’t really blame Riley for going over to her) or when Riley went exploring in her studio for a minute or two.
