the river in December

Our once weekly foray to the river. It's getting low and that means, a little swampy and green. I really should give Indi a bath after getting in it but I am lazy. I use a spray on shampoo (argh, how do I get rid of these link thingies?) and brush her coat really well instead.
I gave Rye a haircut on Thursday. I love how shaving his coat down a bit really makes his spots show.
Here he is on duck watch, his favorite passtime. He usually doesn't get out any deeper than this in the water so he doesn't get smelly.



Indi has started to point!




Indi loves to stick her whole head in the water and take big mouthfuls and then turn around and RUN straight at me. She gets wild!


The scratch between her eyes happened while playing with another dog. I really hope the hair grows back in!
























And finally, here is Rye being his beautiful setter self.

I love Rye's spots! What a fun place for them to play. I have the same habit of not bathing mine. I won't mention the things they've been in since their last bath. Merry Christmas!
