Yesterday, Antonio and I spent a few hours at Patterson Park - me reading, and him - watching squirrels, dogs, people, etc. We did this quite a bit last summer, and I enjoy it because it allows me reading time while Antonio gets stimulated by the surroundings. I probably read about 100 pages in my current book - more than I've read since being on the plane to and from Reno last month.

Later on in the evening, we headed to Jess and Russ' for a pool party and bonfire. Being the mean momma that I am, I sorta put Antonio in the pool (gently) to remind him that he can swim. He swam over to Russ who put him on a floaty where he was a lot happier. Poor little weiner dog, his whole body except for his head totally sinks. He looks like a little submarine.

Keith didn't bring swim trunks, so here's a pic of him by the fire in a towel. It's an image that had us all laughing because it's so, so, so... redneck. I didn't end up getting into the pool, after all. I sat and drank with my feet in the water, but after the sun went down I had little desire to be wet and cold.

We also notice the significant difference between winter bonfires and summer bonfires. Summer bonfires are HOT. I suppose that's why swimming will have to be a part of the event going forward... just to keep it bearable.

Putting a doxie in a pool! Yikes! I bet poor Antonio was unhappy.
