Sunrise At Millie Bush Bark Park

I got up early and took my girls and Joe to the park in hopes of beating the heat. About 30 minutes after the sun came up it started getting rather muggy. That's one thing me and my girls have in common:We don't like the heat and humidity of southeast Texas.
Joe wasn't interested in the water much. And he seemed to be embarrassed of me and my girls because as soon as we got there he took off after other dogs and never came back on his own.
Wait. I'm getting ahead of myself. As soon as I pulled in the parking lot of the dog park, Joe leaped out of the passenger side window. I was SHOCKED. Lucy and Sable have never done such a thing or even acted like they would when seeing other dogs in cars or out walking. I was stunned to see Joe running towards another dog at the entrance of the park. I didn't even realize he had jumped out. So I was on edge the entire time at the park. He was never around us and I didn't know what he was really capable of doing.

Lucy and Sable enjoyed the water as usual although for a shorter period of time. As soon as Joe came around us while following other dogs, I put his leash on him and we loaded up and came home. They all got some exercise and will hopefully lay low all day. It was nice to be up and enjoy the sunrise. More often than not I am usually already at work or sleeping so I miss out of all the beauty of a sunrise. Hope all of you are having a great weekend.

I don't know how you handle the heat - I would melt! Then again, our winters are something to experience! :)

Aw, your girls are gorgeous! We got a lab puppy last spring and she ended up getting parvo from the place where she was boarded for July 4th. We did everything we could to save her, but she passed. Now I won't get another dog until I'm sure the parvo in my yard is gone, I'm too afraid of going through that again! I have two girl kitty's though so that's our girls here. Thanks for visiting my blog! I will check in here.

Beautiful sunrise photo! I can't believe Joe jumped out of the car, talk about freaky! Good thing you were safely at the park before he decided to become a springboard.
