Welcome to the annual dogs in spring post. The flowers are finally blooming, so it is time for one of my favorite posts. I do love pictures of dogs with flowers.
This year, I took the pictures a week early. The flowers were out for 10 days already and waiting until May didn't seem smart.
The dogs have missed two grooming appointments already, so they are a bit thick in the fur department in-spite of brushing.
In the last two years, it has been a battle with them to set still, especially Molly would just wander away. But this year, 10 minutes and we had 30 pictures to pick from. They ran to the flowers and only had to be called back once. When released, they rocketed to the door, happy to be done with me.
Not a lot of flower sniffing this year vs previous years and I didn't get sniffing pictures, it just wasn't happening.

2018 Dogs in Spring Pictures
Before we get to more dog pictures, we had a guest appearance at the pond in our backyard. Say Hi to Mr. Bald Eagle. This is the first eagle we have seen on our pond.
Eagles are becoming more common in our areas. But our pond, which was teaming with fish, suffered deep freeze a few years ago killing all the fish. While a few small fish are slowly coming back, it will take years to recover. Hopefully, Mr. Eagle is a good sign.

Jake - The Original Dog in Spring - 2012
This is Jake who died of cancer in 2013. He is very loved and missed. He loved going into the flowers and setting. But usually ran away if a picture was coming.
