Summer bath under a blue sky

My dog Jolle loves to bath. He always looks for places where he can swim. I not so happy about that. Like on this shot. We went for a walk on a warm day. He took a bath in a boggy pond .He had to take a shower after the hike. And shower - he doesn't like that at all!
.
Jølle er en skikkelig badehund! Han bader i det han måtte komme over når vi er ute på tur. I alt fra en liten dam til sjø hopper han ut i med glede. Ikke alt er like populært sett fra min side. Slik som på dette bildet her. Her sitter han godt plassert i et myrhull, men han hadde fått lov av meg. Vi var på fjellet og det var så varmt at han fikk kjøle seg ned litt. Men han måtte i dusjen da han kom hjem og dusjen, den liker han ikke!

PS! I got many questions about what breed Jolle is...Well he is a result of a lovestory between a Border Collie (mother) and a mix Rottweiler/Doberman (father). We use to call him a "Border Rottman"!!

Her får himmel berre vere himmel, Jølle tar kaka! Nydeleg hund!

Jim sa...

Hi Petunia,

Your dog is beautiful and he looks so relaxed.

Is he by any chance a Gorder Setter breed? Looks an awful lot like one I had many years ago as a gun dog.

Ikke "kjælen" (pysete) den gutten der nei :-)))

Jeg vokste jo opp med en Golden Retriver, som hadde akkurat de samme symptomer..., og helt hvit i pelsen..., du kan tenke deg... i myrhull o.l.
Allikevel kan jeg aldri glemme den dagen har var utenfor grishuset!! på tur til min mormor..., jøss for en stank det da ble av pelsen du

Flott helg til deg min venn.

I am now taking a diminishing dose of steroids for my Rheumatoid Arthritis pain and it works. I believe the chemotherapy drug is spelled "Methotrexate" that is used to treat a lot of things from cancer to arthritis will be used next. I just relish in being pain free.

So I am not participating in Sky Watch Friday just because I might not be able to make it around to all.


I enjoyed seeing your blog post for Sky Watch Friday and I thought your photography was excellent.

I don't know if you like to read or not but if you do this place is amazing.

I just got my first shipment of used books from Strand's bookstore in New York City, yesterday. They have 18 miles of used books. Think about that. Anyway, they got here and I am totally happy with those I chose to read. I had to start out by just choosing a category, like photography, and go from there. I don't know how in the world they can keep track of so many books.

Look up Strand bookstore or copy and paste the URL here: http://www.strandbooks.com/app/www/p/home/

Kjempefint bilde av Jølle,og det underher også, og det av Todd.. Dette er virkelig nydelige dyr og flink fotograf ser det ut til også.. Har Nkon speirefleks og det er kjempefint å bruke, knipeser i vei...

Anki sa...

Stilig! Moro med en hund som liker vann, da :-) Vårres er det IKKE mulig å få hverken til vanns,sjøs eller i dusjen.
Ønsker deg en fin helg, og håper ferien nytes.

Klem!

PS! Nikon er knallbra, hva slags kamera er det? Bruker det selv, og er storfornøyd :-)

Luiz Ramos sa...

Beautiful Jolle. Nice shot.

Old Wom Tigley sa...

Your picture and your Dog are very beautiful.. what breed is he?

Thank you for helping to make Sky Watch so popular and special. I hope you enjoy your Sky Watch as much as I do.

Craver Vii sa...

That's so funny! Why wouldn't they like a shower?! Nice, clean water plus a massage... Nope. They would rather have mud and unidentifiable floating things. Yukk!!

Berit sa...

Kjempeflott! Artig når hundene liker å bade, vår Laika liker å vasse, og bade når tvillingene bader, tror helst hun vil berge de!

Bildene under var virkelig flotte også, så greitt å få låne et kamera da.... mye å sette seg inn i.

Pat - An Arkansas Stamper sa...

Ah, Petunia, see how very happy he is sitting in the bog! A shower is a small price to pay for such an interlude.

Nice Sky Watch!

John sa...

Meget flott bilde. Det var ikke så vanskelig å tippe at det var litt Rottweiler i Jølle.

Monika sa...

Hehe - ja enkelte hunder trur dei er fisker - og DU har vel ein av dei - eg har ein maken

Birk Elsker vann - og hadde han bestemt - ja så er det vann heile tiden :-)

God helg til deg og jølle i bergen - vi skal innom ein snartur i morgen
Se på bil - ogdet blir veldig langt å kjøre

You have a beautiful and sweet dog! It's a great picture!

GAWO sa...

Litt av en røver. Han ser ut til å kose seg, og samtidig ber han nesten om at du skal komme uti til han.

Dragonstar sa...

He looks so happy! How cruel you are to wash him with clean water!

Oh, and the sky is nice, too!

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest sa...

Hi Petunia, Actually I was kind of nervous about the landing in the balloon but it was very gentle. Thank you for visiting my SkyWatch. I am just starting to participate and love it. Love your sweet dog in the water photo. He's looks ever so happy with himself. I have a golden retriever that hates the water. Go figure! You have a wonderful blog. ~ Lynn

Super pic. I like the various cat shots we see, but really - dogs are the greatest. When we were on the island, our two seemed permanently wet.

This is a nice shot! Hope the dog enjoyed the sunny day!

Pietro sa...

Very nice picture for Sky Watch! And your dog is so beautiful!

babooshka sa...

Just stopped by again to say thanks you for the information about old Norwegian words. Snaefell is loosely translated here as snow fell. Again thank you. He's still such a cute dog

Anonymous sa...

Beautiful "Border Rottman"! It must be very frustrating trying to shower Jolle after his walks! Maybe install a permanent dog bath beside the house? Although, they are lots of work keeping clean too! Sure his love makes up for it ;) Love the photo!

pts sa...

so beautiful!

Judi-gmj sa...

I love it!!! Suprised Fishing Guy didn't ask about what kind of fish are in the pond. :)
Beautiful sky. Lucky dog. Petunia will be part of the squirrel's name! One of my favorite flowers.

Elisabeth Augusta sa...

Han ser riktig røveraktig ut, Jølle-karen. Den turen i badekaret kommer nok som en strek i regninga.
Å, det er noen skjønne dyr du har!

Kahshe Cottager sa...

He looks quite happy up to his armpits in water! And your sky makes him look so handsome too!

Tone sa...

så er det på'an igjen, på'an igjen...
Au, ja. Sjukdom og karantene. Eg blei så forb***a for at ikkje Bakke vart spart i treningskampen mot Molde.Det virka jo som om fyren kunne trenge å spare skrotten ei tid med tanke på at han skal prestere ein del no framover.
Desse skadane bekymrar meg.
Håpar Sigurdson er frisk snart.
Er det Mohus som er kompis av sønnen din?
Han er ny for meg, men det er jo sterkt å komme inn på A-laget som målvakt berre 17 år gammal. Det luktar det talent av.
Lykke til med han!
Hels sønnen din og lykk han til!

Eg får ikkj sett kampen. Får berre sjå sønd. og mand. kampane på TV her hos meg.
Men eg skal SJÅ på radio.

Måtte det berre bli ein god haust!!

Baba sa...

I love this dog, and its reflections in the water.

Tone sa...

Åh, håpar han får ein fin opplevelse då!
Suspensjon og skadar har jo sine positive sider for enkelte då :) Han brukar nok sjansen han får godt.
Spelar han i cup - kampen til veka òg?

Dette skal bli ein spennande haust!
Negler ja!! Det spørst om vi ikkje bit like til albogane.

Jølle da? Likar han fotball?
Eg hadde ein katt som var så fascinert av ballett :)

chrome3d sa...

That´s one happy dog! This photo makes me happy.

Babs (Beetle) sa...

That is a lovely photo, sitting so still in the water.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Great photo of dog in a bog. Seattle and Bergen are sister cities, and I loved it there when I visited two years ago in early June. Happy summer.

TSannie sa...

What a wonderful picture! And a wonderful looking dog!

Our lab liked to swim our pond - it's a beautiful pond with a muddy bottom. We finally had the pond made off limits with an electric fence. Didn't hurt our dog, but finally kept her out of it.

Wonderful SWF, Petunia!

Müge Tekil sa...

Whatever it is his breed, Jolle is a very handsome young dog! :-)

Mental P Mama sa...

That. Is. Fantastic!

Christy sa...

Very cute photo of your dog and lovely blue sky behind him.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the comment. To answer your question yes this area has some really nice hiking most of this area is protected as national and state park area.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. Your photo is one that just makes people smile, and the dog looks happy too.

Helt herlig - Border Rottman, jeg måtte bare le altså. Supert og friskt bilde. Og Jeg er like sprø som deg når det gjelder musikk, for meg er det JORN som er greia om dagen... har fått hangup på Worldcanger.... helt gal vettu...nå ble det musikk og dyr her da...og ikke en lyd om at skyene dine faktisk var flotte... Tusen takk for kommentaren inne hos meg:)

Dave Coulter sa...

Aww....he looks like a good dog!

Kacey sa...

LOL, the dog looks like he's having a great time!

Mustang Mike sa...

How sweet! I know there is a breed of dog that looks like that but just can't remember what it is.
On the flying in a power parachute, there is just no fear. It is so quiet - I never once had a quiver of fear. The picture on the right of my post shows me with the helmet on. It was taken while we were flying. Mustang Mike

B. Roan sa...

I love dogs. This one looks really happy to be paddling about in the water.

Willard sa...

A wonderful photograph of a beautiful pet, and a good use of the sky as a composition element!

Just perfect! Beautiful skies and a dog enjoying the day and the water! I wish we had their capacity for enjoyment and enthusiasm! Have a great weekend and a pat to Jolle from me!

quilly sa...

I had a lab once that liked to sunk himself into whatever water came his way. However, he also liked to shower and if the bathroom door wasn't clothed adequately he would gleefully join whoever beneath the spray. I forgot to mention that to my sister-in-law when she and my brother came to stay and she had unexpected company in her shower.

AnnetteK sa...

Ett flott bilde!!
Og det til tross for at jeg er livredd og ikke liker hunder ;)

Har forresten gitt deg en pris i bloggen min ;)

God helg

He is so cute - a real scene stealer!

Hi Petunia, I can just imagine the border collie/ doberman mix - must be quite a livewire of a dog, but slightly tempered by the rottweiler :)

Jeg hadde en labrador for mange år siden som svømte under vann og dykket. Han var helt vanngal. Måtte ha han i bånd når vi gikk forbi vann vinterstid ellers så hoppet han ut i.
