Best Friends

Maisie and Yoshi or "Mo-Yo"
as nicknamed by Noah (Yoshi's human brother)

This is Maisie and one of her best girlfriends, Yoshi. Yoshi moved in across the street from us a few months ago and the two of them hit if off right from the start. I took this picture the other day after one of their romps.

I tell you, if you ever need cheering up...watch two dogs play in a kiddie pool! The pool (below) belongs to Yoshi...but due to the kindness of Yoshi's mom, Jackie...she is letting us borrow it for a few days. Of course, by the time I started looking for a kiddie pool...the stores were all sold out! Maisie just loves it...she likes to jump over it, paw at the bottom of it and totally hog it. I also think she actually likes drinking the water rather than sitting in it. Silly girl.

I'm almost finished with a dog commission that I started a couple of months ago so I will post it soon. Feels good to be painting again!

OOOH! You've given me a good idea. Schatzi loves the water. Glad you're back. I think I saw some of your work on HGTV.

Maisie looks like she's having so much fun with her best friend! I was thinking about getting a pool for Otis and Riley.
Hugs to you and Maisie too!

How fun that Maisie has a girlfriend. They are adorable together.

I bought Pono a kiddie pool when we first moved to the desert, but he was afraid of it. I have since gotten rid of it. I should have shipped it out to Colorado for Maisie!

You are right, watching 2 dogs at play is the original "reality show". It is the best!
