I hope everyone had a happy 4th of July weekend!
Riley, Dexter and I headed to Riley's dad's farm yesterday for a cook-out, fishing and fireworks! I love going to his dad's because he lives miles away from anything so it's very peaceful. All you hear are the birds chirping and bugs buzzing.
Here is the pond where we fished. (sorry for the poor photos, I forgot my camera so I had to use my phone.)

Dexter had the best time there. He even swam across a part of the lake! One minute he was by Riley's side and the next he jumped in and swam to where I was. We were watching him waiting to jump in and save him but he was a natural, of course.
The ground is covered in red dirt so that makes for one dirty puppy.

I forgot to mention last week that there was a movie being filmed here in downtown Enid, OK! woot woot! The movie is called The Killer Inside Me based on the novel by Jim Thompson. It's about a west Texas deputy sheriff that is slowly unmasked as a psychotic killer. It's directed by Michael Winterbottom and stars Casey Affleck, Kate Hudson, Simon Baker, Jessica Alba & Ned Beatty.
Casey Affleck was in town for a couple days driving around our downtown in an old sheriff's car. I never went to see the action myself but you can visit HERE (scroll down the page until you see it!) to see some pictures and footage.
Also, Brigid from Grey Eye Designs got to be an extra in the movie in Tulsa!! You can visit her BLOG to read her experience!


  1. Aw, he looks so tiny and helpless with wet fur. Our dogs love to go to the lake for a swim.

  2. What a fun 4th!! I'm like you; I enjoy a nice little trip out into the country every once in a while. I think it's so funny that Dexter decided to go for a dip! He looks like a fuzzy little tomato in the last photo. :-)
