Too much Tess talk

Molly needs love too. Break out your air double bass, mandolin, banjo or guitar and sing along...I'll be on the tennis racket fiddle using a golf club as a bow. It's time we got the band back together.

I hope she will say yes this time.

How often do you floss?

I have ways of finding out! Seriously...there is no need to lie. The inspection is always very thorough.

When asked for comments on why she is so annoying, Tess was unavailable. And to vicious as Molly is, she just laid there, showed some teeth and went right back to sleep after this little session was over.

Tess, as clueless as ever, still wonders what she did that was so annoying.

Yes, Tess likes balls

It's been a while since I've broken out the camera for taking some hard core dog action shots. I got a call early this morning that we've all been expecting for about a month and it inspired me to turn to my resident therapists for some guidance. One therapist in particular took some good shots. The other therapist spent most of her day glued to my side...only making cameo appearances in some of the pictures below.

So, here goes...I'm going to forgo doctor patient confidentiality and reveal some things that happened in my therapy session today.

It all started with a lesson in levitation. Then, Tess jumped out of her shadow. Sure, Tess catches some and drops some. I'll forgive her for the drops. She has great style, even in failure. Faced with a brick wall, does Tess back down? Hell no! Balls are sacred and should never touch the ground.

After I got the ball stuck on the roof, I had to go in and get another one. I got some of my favorite shots of Tess after the ball change.

Towards the end of the therapy session the light got just right. What do you think dogs think about at this moment? Ball,ball, ball, ball!

I had one more toss left in me before it was time to go back in to see what I'd captured. I'm so glad there was one toss left in me. Tess didn't catch this one. It bounced in her mouth and ricocheted across the back porch. My only thought...please let the camera catch what I think I just saw. It did.

Slobbery tennis balls explained and therapy session concluded.

It's important to note that while not a part of the action, Molly is still glued to my side while I write this. It's funny how she just "knows." I think Molly would also like for me to add that she can kick Tess' butt in the water.

Looks like somebody needs a vacation

Come on Mols....Is it really that hard to kick Tess' butt?

Reading some Golden stuff tonight...

I came across this post. I don't know Emma. Never met Abby. I'll bet you a dollar though that they will become good buddies.

Anyone care to take me up on the bet? Yea...I didn't think so! My theory is proven once again.
