More turtle gaming

Baron searching for another turtle I returned to the pond...




That's a mug full of muck.

I love this - everything rotates out from the muzzle.

Does he actually pick up the turtles when he finds them?...

Giga said...

Polowanie nie udało się, ale radość i ochłoda były :-))). Świetna seria zdjęć.Pozdrawiam serdecznie

Shrinky said...

Oh, these shots are utterly adorable, sooooooooooo cute, you have me grinning from ear to ear! I suspect you have captured his character perfectly.

Millie said...

That is one soaking wet dog! Hope the turtle won.

Jenny Schouten Short said...

Whatever keeps you cool!

pattisjarrett said...

Baron is certainly determined!

missing moments said...

I love Baron but I'm rooting for the turtle!

lisa said...

These are great shots, and he sure does look determined!!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

I imagine he loves getting in the water when it's so hot out. :)

Debbie said...

that second shot is amazing. i'm rooting for the turtle also.

sorry baron but you get huge bones!!!

Mom of M&Ms said...

that 4th shot is priceless.. not sure if he is irritated that a camera is on him... or embarrassed that he got caught on the turtle prowl

Furry Bottoms said...

That IS a great action picture of him shaking everything off! :)

Annette said...

I love the pictures of him sticking his head under the water. He's one determined dog!

Sylvia K said...

Chew on your bones, Baron, leave the turtles alone! They're not good for your teeth anyway! Funny boy!! Hope all of you are having a good week!

Sylvia

nmlong said...

Love the shots of Baron. Your new birdhouse is adorable. Saw it in the post yesterday.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Always love your dog photos. That last one made me lol.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Texwisgirl, Dogs just being dogs! Have a great day and I am continuing to hope you'll break that nasty drought and heat wave there.

Ellie said...

These pictures made me smile. Don't know who I feel more sorry for - well the turtle obviously, but poor Baron. At least it keeps him cool.

Snappy Di said...

Go Turtle... Go Turtle.... Go Turtle...

Oh, and I shake/rotate like that every time I get out of water.

Do

Arija said...

Ah, what a life, and she even takes pictures of me!

You certainly captured the action and determination of Baron's 'fishing' expedition. That last shot with the fly-away ears is tops.

Robin said...

T, great shots! The dogs sure must like the pond, in all the heat you're getting!

Mildred said...

Great action shots!!!

Kathy said...

I almost stepped back and turned my head to avoid the water spray!

wayside wanderer said...

That looks like one wet, fun game! Get 'em, Baron!

wayside wanderer said...

That looks like one wet, fun game! Get 'em, Baron!

Mama-Bug said...

Baron looks like he really enjoys this game. Aww gee mom did you have to take a butt shot!!!!

Gary said...

Is he ever having a good time!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Andrew said...

Aren't dogs wonderful...beautiful images of typical behaviour...

Jill said...

I just LOVE this series! He always makes me smile.

Cindy said...

Nothing better than dogs and water! Why is he going after a turtle when he has a enormous bone at home?? I guess turtles are more fun to catch! Great shots!

It's me said...

What a sweetie !!..love Ria...xxx..

beth said...

wow...i bet he can "hunt" for hours !!!

Katie @Pinke Post said...

Fantastic captures! The 2nd and last ones are favs!

mountain mama said...

what happens when he finds one??

Sall's Country Life said...

Gosh Darnit Baron, leave the poor turtles alone!

James said...

Great shots! What a cute dog!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Wow, he's really into it. I wonder if dogs open their eyes under water.

The White Farmhouse said...

Woah! He is really into that turtle hunting huh?! I guess everyone needs to have a mission in life!

Mike said...

Which way did he go? I studied that first pic for a few minutes and never figured out what it was until I moved on. Baron's lucky that turtle didn't flank him. LOL.

Grant said...

I'll bet he smells great after that bath... lol

Michaele said...

He's such a big ole bunch of love!

dr momi said...

Awwhhh...Baron loves your pond!

Kerry said...

I couldn't tell from the thumbnail what I was looking at, but DUH, of course it was a dog butt!

Farmchick said...

A dedicated turtle hunter!

Lois Evensen said...

Love those images! Our dogs were chasing frogs from the side of a lake today. It was a riot to watch!

Barb said...

I love that last shot!

Leenie said...

Thanks for the SMILE. Your and your pooch have quite a game going there. Turtle retrieve. Turtle rescue. Turtle retrieve.....

Montanagirl said...

Such a fun series of Baron! I wasn't sure what I was seeing when I glanced at the first photo. Too funny....He's totally immersed (no pun intended) in his search isn't he?

Farm Girl said...

That is so funny!! He puts his head down in the water. I can hardly get my dog to even look at water.

Texan said...

LOL diving for turtles.

Chatty Crone said...

Love the way he shakes his head like that - so fun and free - did he find the turtle?

Robin Robinson said...

Nothing quite beats a dog having a good time. Makes us all wish we were in that moment I think. Nice series.

Ruta said...

Wow...I especially love the second shot...what a beautiful dog!

Ruta said...

Wow...I especially love the second shot...what a beautiful dog!

Elizabeth Grimes said...

I don't know who to root for, the turtle or the dog! Both of them I guess! :)

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

My Gawd! He really gets into his work doesn't he? ;)

Sharon said...

At least he gets cooled off!, Is it still so awfully hot there?

Gone Country said...

Baron is hysterical! In the one photo it looks like he's asking "where did it go, Mom?" And does he know you took a shot of his bum up in the air?!

Rose said...

that last one IS fabulous...and Lorelei would be laughing and laughing at him. She already actually sees the humor in things.

Samantha said...

That cracks me up..funny, funny dog!

Catherine said...

Haha ~ I think pup needs some doggie goggles! Cute!
xo Catherine

Michelle said...

Nice...you even captured Baron's water spray!

Margaret said...

This is funny... but the languid squirrel two posts down steals the show!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Crazy mut... He's just staying cool in that Texas heat.
Hugs,
Betsy

MarieElizabeth said...

That last shot is the best. I love the turtle story days.

Amanda said...

That's too funny! Needed that little bit of laughter tonight too!

Chinatours said...

Wow, I haven't realized it from the first pic.

Karen said...

Priceless shots! I love the second last one, he sure looks disappointed that he didn't find the turtle.

Here I Am/Carrie said...

Now that is staying cool and having fun at the same time.

Tiffany said...

So funny...he would have had a great time with the boys at the cabin, they hunted the same turtle every day and came up empty handed:)

Tiffany

PS: The blue bird is lovely

PPS: The five on the right including June of course.

holdingmoments said...

Great captures of the 'shake'.

That's most welcome in the heat, I should think.

Paula said...

Baron would love my tame turtles but on the other hand after he got through with them they probably wouldn't be tame anymore. lol

Nova said...

Oh...Baron loves turtles? So in a pond with turtles he got turtle soup :-))

Liesl said...

So adorable!

Bob Bushell said...

Very good.

madrassi said...

I too like the last and 2nd one lot! Baron seem having good day in pond. Hope you are doing great dear :)

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh how cute, that is one determined pup. I'm rooting for the turtle too, sorry Baron.

Fjällripan said...

Great shots of the georgeous dog! Love when he is shaking the water off :)

Stewart M said...

Hi - there are times when I get out of the sea I wish I could shake like that too!

I am not surprised your dog looks for the turtles - they look like meat pies!

Cheers STewart M

Susan said...

I love water droplet photos - with Baron in it, makes it even better.
Looks like he didn't get the turtle!

OceanoAzul.Sonhos said...

gowestferalwoman said...

LOVE these photos - you captured the whole process!!!

Dawn said...

The GREAT TURTLE HUNTER!
At least he can stay occupied in all the heat....
Baron is a beauty.

forestwalk/laura k said...

sonia a. mascaro said...
