How I, Otto, Spent Our Blogging Break

(or Fabulous Fun Foto Friday)

First of all, am I not the 
of a FUN GUY?!?!

Dudes just wanna have fun.  All the time.

Hey Fiona and ABBY!!  Hop on Air Fiona and come out to The Coast!! 
 You can show me how it's done. 
 I can show you The Pacific!!

Don't I look like Dexter in this picture??  Mom LOVES this one!!

I'm doing some major swimmies in our local ponds. I really love the water!  I'm practically a labradude.  I retrieve about 60% of the time...BOL!!  I love waiting to see if SHE'll just get frustrated and go after the ball herself.  It just cracks me up!!

sorry for the wiggly photo...

I've also been doing a lot of
stick retrieval/rescue like
Brother Goose!  They can DROWN
if you just leave them out there...


While it's been very hot and dry here, you can see that I've trained HER to get out, cool off and have fun with ME.    

Next time, I'll show you some pictures of me having super funballs with my furiends, cuz I do that, too!


Please keep your paws crossed for my brother Bart who I'm very respectful of.  I know he doesn't feel well and I don't bug him.  I'm a pretty nice guy...


Now get out there and have some fun!!!

Otto! How many big sticks have you rescued? I had no idea they could drown.

We are thinking of Brother Bart and hoping for the very best for him.

Well Otto, you certainly do make water and retrieving look like great fun. Just so long as people don't try to make me do the same.

You know what Otto? I think you and Frankie would get on really well. You sound like his kind of guy :) Our best wishes to Bart, give him a big hug for us!

Matilda the Boxer said...

What a fun time! So you swim like Dexter and rescue sticks like Goose. What can you do like me? Sleep? KISS??

Ojo said...

Hi Hi hi! Ojo here! Otto, you are very handsome! That first picture is pawesome. Sounds like you had a great blogging-break! If you need help rescuing sticks, well, don't ask me. I just like to chase them into the water, but Cobi comes along after and carries them to safe spots waaaay up on shore. So you'd better ask her. Keep having fun!

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

You ARE a seriously Fun Guy (our Mom is snickering and making nerd jokes... *sigh*)! We are SO going to wind up the rubber band on AirFiona so we can come visit and have wild frisbee times! And poss*ibly go swimming, too, as we are half retriever, and like the water, at least half the time! Heehee!

*kissey face*

The Daily Pip said...

Hope Bart is feeling better!

Your pal, Pip

Looks like some really good times buddy! Thanks for your public service making the world safer for sticks, I know they would have been lost without you.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I came to give you all more love-- I was thinking of you,, and wanted to tell you so.
