Fun in the Sun

My heart is full and my mind is being severly tested today at work, as I roll into the last four days before my trip. So I leave you with some pics my sister sent me over the weekend. Here is the gang having fun in the sun....








...Lupo has a tendency to let it all hang out when he sits....we call it his 'lipstick'

Wow, those are some BEAUTIFUL dogs! And BIG! LOVE THEM!

Hi George - yes, that's Tenerife :)

Jamie - Thank you!! The red dog is Bozo, my sis's boyfriend's dog, rescued there. He's a part presa canaria, the local hound. Lupo's brother looks a lot like him, just Lupo-sized (different fathers, same litter apparently). Actually a little-known fact is the 'Islas Canarias' means islands of the dogs (when I first heard of the islands I immediately thought 'birds') because of that particular breed which originated there when the local breed was crossed with bulldogs and mastiffs. Primarily a guard/cattle working dog, it later became used for dogfighting and became almost extinct in the 1960s after dogfighting was banned. I've seen one full-blooded presa and OMG it's like a mini horse! HUGE and so powerful.

Oh how I would love to be on that beach right now and let all my cares wash away - preferably with a certain guy who could do with the same!

Counting down with you now Fi - eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee it's so exciting!

Fiona said...

FB - If you're good with a frisbee, Lupo would love to show you around ;)

Exciting??? We're like pigs in shit right now *L*

Beautiful puppies.

Fusion said...

Ah, the things dogs can get away with, just because they're dogs...but they sure look happy!

Fiona - wonderful pictures of your lovely Lupo I bet you wish you were there on the beach playing with him.

Fiona said...

Anna - Thank you...animals truly do bless our lives and that dog is one of the biggest blessings I've ever had :)

Fusion - I bet a few men wish they could let it hang out like that *L* They have such wonderful lives. It tore me apart leaving him but I know he's happy and healthy there and has a lifestyle I couldn't give him here.

D - I would. I remember being on that very beach, climbing those very rocks with him, on the last visit. And best of all, giving him a warm shower when he got home and seeing him so tired out from having such a wonderful day. Good memories indeed :) By the way any more puppy pics? Are their eyes open yet?
