Annual Labor Day Picnic is a Dog’s Delight


CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS

ANNUAL LABOR DAY PICNIC IS A DOG’S DELIGHT

     Today, September 4, 2011, my husband Monte walked the path through the woods to my son-in-law’s Annual day-before-Labor-Day Picnic. 

 

     It was hot and humid as Michael prepared barbecued ribs (using three different barbeque sauces) on the grill. Unfortunately, by the time he grilled the hamburgers and hot dogs, the ribs had been gobbled down by the guests and he didn’t get any. 

 

     Michael and Sandy’s dog, Cocoa (a chocolate Labrador retriever), couldn’t get enough water so granddaughter Jordan tried to quench his thirst:

     By mid-afternoon picnickers were forced into the garage by a deluge of rain that moved in from the west.  

Boots (Cocoa’s doggie friend) demonstrated his dislike of thunder:

  

And needed comforting…

…as  did Cooper, who glared at the camera while being held by his mistress, Michael’s mother. 

Cooper waits out the storm

 The rains ended shortly, and the outside was enjoyed once again, by both the humans and the dogs. It was time for Michael to fire up the grill for a second cooking. Monte and I were tired, and so we headed down the path to our house.
