Last week my car started making a ton of noise. Luckily, my dad is a mechanic so Klaus and I took a ride out to my parents house to hopefully clear up the problem. While my dad worked on my car I took outfit photos, and Klaus...well, he had the time of his life. Last summer he discovered that puddles are basically the best thing ever. One weekend while I was away, and my parents were puppysitting my mom sent me a photo of him laying in a puddle, just relaxing. Needless to say as soon as I let Klaus outside he darted for a puddle. Him, and Crum spent the evening splashing around, and fighting over sticks. I'm not a fan of the dog park at all so I treasure the time he gets to run wild in my parents yard even if does mean he'll need a bath when we get home.

Nearly all the photos I got of them playing were out of focus but I still think they're incredibly cute. The one of Crum jumping over Klaus is hilarious to me. Klaus' face is so goofy. I'm hoping this summer he'll be a little bit more open to trying other bodies of water. Dogs playing in water kill me, it's just too cute and they always look so happy.

PS. Speaking of happy dogs, if you don't follow me on instagram or twitter you may have missed this gem. Klaus, in my coat, looking like the happiest dude ever.

    1. Nah, I'm thinking Klaus is fully grown. I never really realize how small he is until he's by Crum.

    1. I know, they love each other so much. Seeing them play together is awesome but I love after they've worn each other out and they lay down together. SO DARN CUTE.

      One is a flea collar.

  13. Those action shots are amazing! It's so funny which dogs take to water and which don't - we had a chocolate lab growing up who hated getting in the water, and point blank refused to take her feet off the bottom and swim.

  14. I love your outfit and the green hair, suits you well!

    And I love seeing photo's of Klaus and Crum! I no longer have a dog, but my parents always did and the last two dogs they had when I lived with them were harlequin Great Dane's too: Mika and Dina. And even though they were the biggest dogs my parents ever had (amongst a German Shepherd, Dogo Argentino, Komondor, Bouvier and others), they were the sweetest. I couldn't have wished for better friends to grow up with :)
