Bella Jo's got a BFF!!


Yep...Bella Jo has found her Best Friend Forever...lil' Missy from the TI Ranch. Every time they get together, they just tear it up. Her owner, Sam, and I try to get them together for a doggie play day at least once or twice a week.

You know the saying..."a tired dog is a good dog."

This series was captured from their 2 hour romp on Sunday...



They always have to start out with a lil' behind sniffin'.
L-R is Lacy, Missy, 'n Bella Jo.
After the formalities...





...the race is on!






The beautiful Missy is an ADD child no doubt.
It's hard to wear this pup out!





Let's see who's the most athletic...






Hmmmmm...lookin' like it's a toss up!
Could this be the new "air dancin'?"






Then there's cagey...






...'n gettin' down right tough.






"Come on Bella Jo, we need to cool off a lil' bit!






"Hey Missy...I've played up a powerful thurst...
don't ya just love this horse poop water?!?"






"I'm Queen of the Trailer, 'n I've got the
upper paw on ya Missy."







"Ha! Even on the ground, I've got the upper paw!"







"OhOh....Mooooooom!!! I think I killed Missy!!!"








"Aw dang...she's just playin' dead! Missy, yer tricky!!"






"Oh my, I think I'm done Mom...when can me 'n Missy
play again?!? Huh, Mom, huh?!?"






"Hmmmmm...was it worth it?"







"Ya betcha!!! I luv Missy...'n even my mom
when she gives me a bath!"

Jayke said...

There's no happier sight that two dogs running just for the love of it. Thanks for the great pick me up!

Sydney said...

Ahah that is the typical upset wet dog face.

Shirley said...

What a great set of photos! That is the kind of play my Tess loves, she'd fit right in. Love that air dancing shot. Looks like you are getting along real good with your new camera!

It's sort of like the "wet saddle blanket" cure. Boy, oh boy, does that look like a-good-time was being had by both pups. I'm so glad that your Bella has found a friend that can keep up to her!

lisa said...

I bet she slept pretty darn good after that play day. Mom looks awful proud too!

Rhonda said...

Loved this! You got me with the comment about the dogs drinking the ... ahem ... water. LOL!!!

Puppy play is pure glee.

I'm impressed that you captured so many good pictures of the dogs. They're so quick, it's hard to keep up with the action.

dibear said...

Great action shots. Chuck calls the butt sniffin, "Gettin their messages" LOL

Country Whispers said...

What a great play date. You got so many good shots of them out running around. I'm sure they both slept real good that night.

So, what exactly is it about poop water? Dogs love it, the horses drink it, maybe we should bottle it, give it a fancy Fench name and sell it....

prairierunner said...

Great action shots! My dogs duck and run for cover when I get the camera out and point it at 'em!

Janice said...

I love dog posts, your commentary is pretty good too.

I could watch dogs play forever, their body language end the energy they have is awesome.
