Hurley Dreams Big

This post was not planned but I wanted to share this with you.

Our plantation dog, Hurley has always had a love affair with swimming.

We have an in ground pool here in Chesapeake and when it is open; it is near impossible keeping Hurley out.

 Tonight, he discovered the Olympics. We caught him watching the swimming events.

Now I just hope we can keep him out of the Rappahannock River when we go to the plantation!

    How adorable is that!

    • Haha Believe it or not, Hurley loves to watch television. We catch him at it all the time. I think it is because we left the television on for him when he was young when we were at work so he would have some human sounds around.

    Hurley, you are my kind of friend. If I was there, we would both have fun playing Marco Polo in the pool together. I love watching television as well. Mom has a tv set up in my room and I love to watch my shows. XOXOX Bacon

    • Bacon,
      I am not sure if Marco Polo is my kind of game. I pretty much jump in and swim to the end and play on the stairs with my toy. But we could watch tv together any time! I love the baked bean commericals with Duke!

  14. Go for it, Hurley! That’s hilarious. My boyfriend and I disagree about animals’ interest in TV. He thinks they don’t care. But! I had a cat who used to watch hockey, and try to bat at the puck. And I had another cat who would sit on the arm of the couch and not move a muscle when “The Adventures of Milo and Otis” came on.

    • Oh I know he does. He lays around until something comes on that catches his interest. Then he sits up and watches. I can’t say he has a favorite, but if there is another dog on the tv he likes to bark at them.
