Summertime, and the living is easy...

My first picnic this summer (Tervasaari park).
Female human took me swimming to the dog beach.
It took me a while to appreciate the gesture.
(A real lady never rushes to water.)

We met two of my friends, spanish greyhounds Chai
(posing next to my trendy bald thighs)...
...and Chanel, who really enjoys the weather now.
(She has quite recently moved to Finland.)
It's hard work to mingle with other skinny hounds.
Thankfully the male human remembered my blanket.
Fortunately, I didn't have to walk home.
Greymobile is all set up for the summer!

Ooh, what a lovely day!

Still, please be careful when showing these pictures around.
The second from the top might cause an explosion in a retriever's brain. ("Water! Water! Water! And she's just lying there! This makes no sense! Aargh!")

Täti R., there were other dogs on the beach. And a training dummy. And exhausted owners...

Connect the dog with the message:

1. "Water! Water! Dummy! Throw the dummy NOW!" (repeated N times or till the owner passes out)

2. "Me! Me! Can I fetch as well? Can I? Can I? Can I?"

3. "A beach! Yip! I'll chase you first, and then you, and then that sparrow, and then my tail - yip! yip! yip!"

4. "No, me! Me! Huh? Huh? Can I fetch? As soon as I've chased the sparrow? And your tail? Can I? Can I? Pleeeeeeze!!"

5. "This is a lousy hotel. Loud pool games. Wet guests covered with sand. No pool bar. No staff. No grill. No towels. No massages. Next year, we'll go to the Ritz."

A. Labrador puppy
B. Unidentified miniature breed
C. Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever
D. Greyhound
E. An adult Labrador

(Somehow I've got a feeling this is an easy one... ;)
