The Beginning of Summer. My Dogs are Possessed.

Boston Terriers Attack!

I mean obsessed. Or possessed. I’m not sure. Have I ever told you about Howie’s obsession with water? This is the face Howie makes when he hears the hose come on…

Boston Terriers Attack!

He goes absolutely crazy when he sees it.

Boston Terriers Attack!

He wants to chase it.

Boston Terriers Attack!

He wants to eat it.

Boston Terriers Attack!

He wants to attack it.

Boston Terriers Attack!

*CHOMP*

Boston Terriers Attack!

Augh! I’ve been hit!!!

Boston Terriers Attack!

Oh nooooooes!

Boston Terriers Attack!

Gargle… Glug.. Blurp.

Boston Terriers Attack!

Oh no you didn’t! Nobody gets my booty!

Boston Terriers Attack!

Must. Regroup!

Boston Terriers Attack!

Attack!

Boston Terriers Attack!

*SNARF!*

Boston Terriers Attack!

Heh. Heh. Hee!

Boston Terriers Attack!

Shake it off, bud! You’ll get ‘em next time!

Boston Terriers Attack!

Miley doesn’t get the commotion. She only bothers with the hose when she’s thirsty.

Boston Terriers Attack!

Howie does not like to share.

Boston Terriers Attack!

Usually she just beats ‘em off anyway.

Boston Terriers Attack!

Miley carefully approaches, staring down the hose. It’s all about eye contact.

Boston Terriers Attack!

She tests the water…

Boston Terriers Attack!

And goes in for a gulp!

Boston Terriers Attack!

Sluuurp!

Boston Terriers Attack!

Howie hovers closely.

Boston Terriers Attack!

Everybody’s happy when the water’s out.

This is how you know it’s summer. That and it’s 90 degrees outside every day.

P.S. I took these with my trusty Canon 70-200mm f/4L Zoom Lens. Love this lens!

Thanks for looking! :)

I’ve been following you and your fam (following…sounds like stalking…lol) since you first got Miley. I love them!! Howie reminds me of my guy, he LOVES water and doesn’t want to share!

We took Bella to the ocean last week and she was terrified. She doesn’t like water. She actually runs from the hose when I turn it on! I did buy her a lifejacket for the next time we take her to the beach though and I also purchased that tent from Amazon! She’s all set!
Great capture in your photos!

OMIGOSH! I love these photos!!! Your camera rocks, of course, along w/ your rediculously talented photography skills! I have pictures just like this of my two dogs running thru the sprinkler, getting sprayed w/ the hose, and jumping around in “their pool” (which is just one of those small pools you buy at Target). My photos are not even close to the beauty yours portray. Your shots are so clear, so crisp, so faaaaaabulous.

I need a new camera and some photography classes! sigh!

Hugs to you and your happy family!

I love your dogs they are so funny; I have a Jack Russel that attacks the vacuum cleaner just because I touch it. She had many fights with her training cage door also.Got her nose stuck a lot (nickname:knot nose). Don’t know what that was about :)

Have a great day and thanks for all your hard work.

Love it, Miley and Howie are adorable. We have 2 boston’s, Ebony and Baxter, but neither one likes the water that much. Maybe this summer once it warms up, they will get used to it, they are still puppies. What would we do without them. I see that yours give you as much pleasure as ours do. Keep posting pics of them, truly enjoy it.
