I’ve featured Pepsi the dog before. Whenever we head down Arklow way to visit the grand kids (and their parents) we seem to go for a walk. Sometimes it’s just Pepsi and me going off and other times it’s grandparents, parents and kids… plus Pepsi, of course! Pepsi has the knack of catching my attention when we’re down there. If I try to ignore her she mopes and keeps pawing at the glass sliding door, until we let her in and go off.

Pepsi chasing the ball!

So… there’s a very good reason for taking Pepsi for a walk. Well, I think she actually rules the outings as the throw stick and ball go along. She’ll carry the ball… until she wants you to throw it for her. When we get down to the water her whole demeanour changes. She can’t get enough of jumping in to retrieve the ball… and then dropping it at my feet for the net go!

The big splash! Pepsi's after that ball!

Of course… I love trying to get the moments! Not always easy because I operate the camera with the left hand and the throw stick with the right… FUN!!

    Lovely photos of Pepsi in the river. We had 2 schnauzers, one loved water yet the other would walk around puddles rather than get his paws wet. Dogs are such characters and companions.

    I love the name ‘Pepsi’ 🙂
    I must say, though operating the camera with one hand, you have captured the moments really well 😀


  4. If one of your other commenters already said this, I apologise – after all, I wouldn’t know would I?! But my first thought was how unfortunate it would be if you changed hands one day and momentarily forgot!

    Sy is pragtig. Ek hou van die effek van die waterdruppels wat spat op die fotos.

    Gelukkig is dit nou somer by julle, anders sou arme Pepsi lekker koud gekry het in die water!
