Donkey!

Nemo’s costume in case we go trick-or-treating.

Ooops

Getting off the boat the other night, Nemo jumped down onto the pier as usual, until for some strange reason he didn’t walk a straight line off the finger pier and his back leg went off the side of the dock. This had the unfortunate effect of him dropping backward, dog butt first into the water. He was embarrassed by the time we fished him out to say the least and pouted for quite awhile after we got home. My poor, silly dog.

Tail wagging good time

Nemo is half Black Lab and half Great Dane. His head looks very Lab-like, but those claw feet and most of his behavior patterns are all Dane. In dog shows, Labrador Retrievers are to demonstrate their rudder-like tails wagging at all times, because that is a Lab trait. Nemo’s tail rarely wags unless he wants something, but on our weekend out at Caladesi Island recently, he splished and splashed around in a quiet cove for nearly three hours. He had a grand time as evidenced by the latent perpetually-wagging-tail Lab genes that showed up. #LuvMyBigGoobieDog

Caladesi Island visit

Nemo spent most of a three day weekend with us out at the State Park where he got to go boating, docking, hiking, and lots of swimming.

Storefront window: shore birds

My theme for the window was shore birds. Dunedin, Florida has State Park beaches kept in their naturalized state and are just gorgeous. Here on Second Time Treasures‘ storefront are some of the critters we did for this season.
