Late Summer Sky

So yesterday evening, after it started to cool off, we headed down to the creek to meet up with Mabel Lou and our other creek buddies.

Look at what we saw!!!

 The publicist took these with her iPhone!!

 Can you tell it's a double rainbow?


It was like we got a gift.

On our way back to the car, it started to lightning.  
So I'm playing it safe!

Hope you have a great week!

Bella likes to hide during thunderstorms but NEVER where baths might happen!

We had a loud clap of thunder and Summer stood up, fur standing up, and gave a seriously scary bark. Like "not in my house"! My hero!

Unknown said...

Gorgeous sky! Thanks for sharing!!

I am very familiar with the "dog in the shower" look.... Spike HATES water and baths until a storm comes along, then he hides either in the tub upstairs or the shower downstairs. Just depends on where I am. Sad!! Ah well, our stormy thunder season is nearly over so there shouldn't be much more hiding for the boy.

Have a great week!

WE are having a storm right now and Scrappy has on his Thunder Shirt for the first time. Seems to be working.

Love the rainbows they are beautiful. Especially the third one down.


Pippen said...

Awesome rainbows! We're with you on the lightening but not sure about getting in the shower... what if you got a bath???

What a magical sky! Looks like a rainless rainbow. We're having a rainbowless rain for 5 days.

We're so very sorry to read about your friend, Lily's, bone cancer. Mama lost 2 female Danes to bone cancer and it really sucks. We will certainly keep our paws crossed for her.

What a beautiful capture! That is just breathtaking!

Hope the lightning didn't last very long and you were able to come out of the shower Bart!

Amber DaWeenie said...

Stella said...

Aw, Amber thats a very sweet thing to say about the rainbows. I agree with you that they are from our pals that are getting thins ready for us and saying HI!.

Kisses to the Rotties, too,


Wyatt said...

That's a great place to hide, unless somebody decides that you need to be washed...BOL. You should try the closet or under a desk :)


houndstooth said...

What beautiful pictures! I'm glad you shared them with us!

Bart, we've missed your interesting dog installments!


greygirl25 said...

Those skies are beautiful.

Bart, I'd head for the shower too.

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Hey Bart, are you still in the shower??? It was a gorgeous rainbow!!!

Bouncing Bertie said...

Hmmm. This thing about our publicists showing dog-free photos on our blogs. Do we approve? (I had to make space for a sunset today too).
Toodle pip!

Molly the Airedale said...

Hope the lightening has stopped so you can come out of the shower now, Bart! Someone else might need to use it:)

That was a gift! A stunning rainbow x 2! Wow! Thanks for sharing :D

Bart, your storm bunker looks very similar to mine ;)

Waggin at ya,

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Just gorgeous! It was a gift.

Bart, do you really think hiding out in a shower is safe? Someone might turn on the water.

XXXOOO daisy, Kendra & Bella

Mack said...

Better safe than sorry Bart!!

(PS: Did Ruby ask about me??)

Your pal,

The Daily Pip said...

How beautiful! I agree, a definite gift!

Your pal, Pip

Oh Bart... I bet you smell sweet from the shower you took... LOL

KB said...

Wow, Bart, those are gorgeous photos of the rainbow over the mountain. I feel like I was there. It was a gift... My best dog friend outside our family died this weekend so I'm taking it as a sign that he made it to the bridge. I miss him already. He visited us several times a week for 8 years so he was like part of our family.

Tanya Breese said...

The Thuglets said...

Beautiful rainbow. Was there a pot of gold at the end of it?

Great place to hide in a storm!

Have a great week.

OMD! I even see the pot of gold in some of those pikshures. They do be pawsome! But rilly, a hidey spot in a baf place? Um, not a good ideer.

Dexter said...

My Grandpa Angus used to hide in the shower during the thunder as well. Kind of odd if you ask me.

But those rainbows! Wow! Don't see those around these parts.

Be careful Bart, someone might get the idea you want to be cleaned up!

My Mind's Eye said...

Bart rainbows are indeed a gift and we thank you for sharing with us....tell you publist she is the best!
Hugs Madi
PS I don't dare step foot in the shower for fear it will rain on my head.

I have never had a dog that was afraid of thunder and lightening!! Never yet, that is. Funny I wonder why??
When I first had Bambi we had a tornado, and that tornado lifted the house up with us in it and set it down again. We were not hurt and she never got afraid of storms!!! She was so special!!!

Wow - those are great pics! We're with you Bart, we think the shower is a good place to hide during the lightning!

Marjie said...

Bart, your publicist did a great job capturing what you saw. I'm so glad you attributed them to Thor. And you have a great place to hide from the evil booming. It will never find you there.

Alfie said...

so beautiful! onetime i noticed the sky was pink. i thought that Pink Panther guy from the TV was coming to attack us. but i have never seen lightning (yet). i hear its scary!

the shower seems like the perfect place to hide. i would try that, but im afraid if i did, my people would think im hinting them to give me a bath! no siree!

Ryker said...

That is a truly spectacular rainbow, very nice photos.
We rarely get thunder and lighting here. I have only heard it once.

Teddy Westlife said...

Bart, I like to sit in the shower too. Not when it's on, though.
