Splash! (#252)

Put one wildly energetic Lab within the vicinity of any body of water.  What do you get?

You get lots of laughs and amazement while watching Barney (the Labrador Retriever pet of my friend, Sher) endlessly diving into the water just for the joy of it…..and to retrieve a stick!

Nearby fishermen just shake their heads and smile as he lands full body on the water time and time again.

Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful spring weather as much as Barney; doing something for the joy of it!

  1. Those photos are gorgeous, Annie. Each one, the composition- everything. Big splash is a prize winner, just an extraordinary take on the subject, avoiding clichés.
    Retriever, the beautiful rippled tree reflections. And One happy dog, the shadow is a very interesting shape and works so well with the whole composition.

    Ahhh, thank you so much Anne. Barney is a celebrity! You sure did capture him right. Water is one of his most favorite things. Ball playing, playing with the neighbor dog and eating are all at the top of his list. He had a wonderful day yesterday. He was so tired he went to bed @ 8:30 and didn’t get up until 7:00 am. What a happy dog!

    I wish I could do such things with reckless abandon like Barney. Fun stuff.

    Oh Annie, I just want to jump in after Barney, that spectacular splash of his looks so exhilarating. All great shots and as good as being there with you all! 🙂

    I like the splash one and the one of him with the big stick. Nice pictures.
