The Zoolatry Human's granddaughter is a certified scuba diver so it was natural for her to give me some lessons.  Though being a Labrador, my swimming and diving skills are already at a high level as you might imagine!  And I love the water!  Though I might not be able to get way down deep for my fave tennis balls today since I forgot my flippers!  Go over to visit with MURPHY and STANLEY to see more scuba divers and snorkelers, maybe they'll do better than me.

Dougie Dogster, the cool surfer dude, here on my custom made board.  Awesome, mmm.  Showing off some of my own special moves.  I call this one the curl!  Wonder if the other surfers today over at OREO'S COOKIE JAR are showing off their special moves.  Go check it out!

Of course, Zoey is here for all the Spring Break fun.  But as you can see, she chooses some of the calmer (more ladylike) activities.  So I've joined her on one of the paddle boats in the lake at Pullen Park.  The park is one of our friend Madi's favorite places because there are so many things to do here, and if you visit with MADI and MOM, Down Home in NC, I'm sure you'll be able to see lots of the park's activities.

Well, sometimes the best intentions go astray.  Our friend CHRISTMAS, at PAW PROVINCE is having a treasure hunt down on the beach.  I did promise my sweet friend LADY SHASTA that I'd share the fun with her ~ and yet, after all these fun-in-the-sun activities, I am sorely in need of a bit of a nap and as you can see, the "lady" is not at all pleased.  Sigh ... 

Soon the sun will set in our trawpical paradise and we are ending this wonderful day with a Beach Blanket Bingo party and dance, sponsored by our friends Mabel, Hazel and Bailey of IDAHO PUG RANCH.

Admittedly, I am not much of a dancer (and a bit shy around the ladies) ... plus no way would I be seen in a grass skirt!  So I told the Zoolatry Human I preferred to watch the dance from a distance, though I did agree to wear a lei!  It smells good! 

But soon I shall take advantage of some wonderful food and beverages and go thank all our amazing hostesses and hosts for this glorious day!  And I shall top by DORY'S BACKYARD to say hello, they are here on their spring break ~ and I hope Angel Dory and her brofurs Arty, Jakey and Bilbo have enjoyed this day too!



Did you want something, Dougie?
But that look in your eye tells me you want something.
Well, you seem to have something on your mind.
It sure looks like you do.

It's just another Sunday Selfie.
Yes it is!  And find more of them today over at



FLOWER FRIDAY ~ Remembering Dory

I've heard humans say you should always "stop and smell the flowers".  
From now on, when I do, I shall remember my dear and sweet friend Angel Dory.  
And I shall also think of her lovely family, and her very special brothers Arty, Jakey and Bilbo.  

To visit Angel Dory ~ Arty, Jakey and Bilbo,

Oh Oh.  Oh No.

Not for toes, this not good!
