Springtime Fun

This past weekend was beautiful - sunny and warm and ideal for being outside.  We had lots of fun being in the backyard, and the dogs enjoyed it too.  Ethan had been pestering me to use his new water balloons, so I finally relented.  I sat at the hose and filled and tied, filled and tied.  It was hard to stay ahead of Ethan as he would throw the balloons just about as fast as I could fill them, but we both had a good time.

Pistol is always excited for anything involving water, especially if the hose is out.  He's also an avid ball chaser, so Ethan had some fun throwing the balloons for Pistol.  Poor Pistol would excitedly chase after the balloon, then spin in confused circles where it had landed, looking for what he had been chasing.  It felt a little cruel, but the tail kept wagging and he kept asking for more.  I think Pistol is happy to chase regardless of the outcome.  A couple times he got ahead of Ethan and actually managed to "catch" the balloon.  Not better results than chasing it - there's still nothing to bring back, except a mouthful of water!

  1. For those of you who worry, Pistol only managed to catch the balloons a couple of times, and I checked - he spit out the tiny bit of plastic.
