Wordless Wednesday: Dogs Day At The Lake

Yesterday we took the dogs on a little adventure to beautiful Saguaro Lake, just a few miles North of Phoenix, Arizona.  The lake is named after the Saguaro cactus, which you can see in the background of the first photo.  Saguaro cacti are native to the Sonoran desert and don't grow anywhere else.


Isis, Phoebe and my husband at Saguaro Lake.  You can see a Saguaro cactus in the background.

Isis surveys the area from her perch on a rock.

Checking out the place some more.
Isis looks longingly at the water. Uh-Oh, we know that look


And there she goes, into the water!  Of course the first thing she does is sneak a drink of that water.
Phoebe had no desire to get near the water.  She was content to sniff some desert wildflowers instead.

    1. They sure are! When Isis was a puppy she ran by a cactus and got a bunch of needles stuck in her leg. After that we removed them from our yard and she stayed far away from any cactus plants. Thanks for stopping by today Emma!
