There are few thing in this world as charming and hard to resist as an Australian Labradoodle. When this one comes trotting toward you with his sweet smile, you are in big trouble. It’s all over. He owns you.
Well, he certainly owns me.And that big one back there. He’s no less dangerous in terms of the deadly love force.
There is no good reason for all this cuteness. I saw the cuteness and took a picture of it. Now I’m just sharing. And bragging. These doodles are being both sweet and cute. Oh, and they are being fun. That’s not unusual, in case you haven’t noticed.
We went for a good hike this morning and did some photographic experiments. Well, I did the experiments. These guys got roped in as little as possible. They spent as much of their time sniffing, trotting around and chasing each other as they could. Posing for Mom only when absolutely necessary.
We are safely back inside, and I’m working away on another post on this decidedly fall day. This is exactly the kind of weather for hanging out inside, watching some football, snuggling with some dogs and doing some blogging. We’ll see if I get my project done. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t!
In the meantime, you are local and want to join us in our Doodle Day of Beauty, be sure to let us know!
All packed up and ready for an adventure.
Well, I am going to have to get off my duff and haul out the big camera. I’ve been doing these little out-and-about shots with my phone camera. They just aren’t cutting it in terms of the quality. But in terms of just cuteness, they’ll do in a pinch!
So here are the boys in their backpacks. How cute is that? Really! I got Sam used to his and enjoyed not having to schlep the doodles water on our hike. I decided to get a pack for Luke. He didn’t love his as much, but he’s getting used to it.
However, note to self: don’t make the dogs wear a backpack for a run in 90 degree heat. Duh! It’s been so hot here, and it was cooler today so I thought it was actually cool. I didn’t realize it was 90 degrees until we were all out there panting. What was I thinking? Actually, it’s not reasonable! So I soaked the boys down to take advantage of the breeze and cut our run short.
Still…so cute to see the boys in their gear. I love that!
I love to go hiking or running with the Doods in the morning. There really is nothing better. See that structure in the background? That’s three miles in from our starting point. It’s also where there were a group of admirers… They had to pose for pictures. Again. Poor doods.
So that was three miles in, and if my math is correct, that means three miles out. Six miles-ish. This was intended to wear them out. I was pretty sure I did a good job of that.
Here’s what they decided to do after the hike (and breakfast)…
So…maybe not so worn out?
So I was fiddling around with my tripod, trying to find a good place to do my silly video review. OMG, I still can’t believe I did that. Anyway…I was preoccupied with whatever had my attention when I looked over and saw the doodles in this configuration.
I did not set this photo up at all. The boys and their sister, just hanging out and probably wondering what I was up to with that contraption. How cute is that? Really. It’s cute overload.
Another fun day with the doods. As always, stay tuned. If we ever finish the tile floors, we might get back to the trails! Or the beach. Or we might travel somewhere…you never know!
Sometimes we do tend to go a bit too far…
Here’s a smile to brighten your day. Few things are cuter than when Luke trots up to you with a smile. This is just one example. Enjoy!
