I have one of those tank tops with a built in bra that I wear when I take Caleb out to play in his pool. I also put it on when I'm messing with our pool, wash the truck, etc. I needed to vacuum the pool earlier, so came in and put the tank on. When I came out of the bathroom, Caleb went insane, running onto the porch making the noises he does when he sees me getting his pool out. So, now, not only does hearing the hose turn on and/or see me move his pool wind him up, so does my lavendar tank top!
LOL and some stupid people say they can't think, huh?! Good boy Caleb.

I have a pair of cargo pants that I typically (but neither exclusively nor always) wear to the dog park. Whenever I put them on, Toby will not leave my side.
It's amazing how quickly they pick up on patterns in our behaviours.
Smart, smart labs we've got!

Haha.. that's funny. If I grab my keys and am not dressed in my work uniform, Abbey thinks she's going somewhere..
Caleb you are so smart.
Bess was just a pup when we got her and she started sailing with us on our Snipe when she was about 7 months old. She soon loved going to the lake for swimming and informal dock diving as well as the sailing. And she l♥ved sailing on our later C-scows even more; they have only a single large mainsail (no jib forward of the mast) and Bess would sit there like an animate hood ornament, changing to the high side with each tack of the boat.
Over several years, SU Char and I discovered that we had to spell any mention of L-A-K-E and/or S-A-I-L-I-N-G or we'd have an overly excited, dancing whirling dervish Black Lab on our hands.
