Convention in the Woods



Kennedy Park in Lenox, Massachusetts, was the site of Saturday's canine conference.  Seminar topics included tolerating one's human in the time between meals and advanced techniques for feigning deafness when called.



Diving and swimming provided recreational breaks.



Dessert was twig.

Sounds like a fun day. Those topics could apply to some people I have come across over the years.

This looks like a canine convention. Were you there photographing only or as a member of the group with a dog of your own??

Jack said...

@Kate, I came across them while hiking. I am dogless.

Love to see these beautiful dos in a place where they can have fun. On the other side our town is literally overwhelmed by a massive canine presence...

Tolerating one's human can be such a bear!

Don't forget the optional extra credit class, "Cuteness: Kicking it up a notch - beyond the cocked head."

This is dirty pool, Jack. I want another golden retriever but I've been told it is to our advantage not to obtain such an animal. And these shots just make me want one more. They are fantastic dogs.

Everyone looks like they are having fun. We've never been pet people, although several have passed through the house do to the wishes of others.

Randy said...

Looks like there might have been some heavy tail wagging out there.

Jack, I love your sense of humour.

Haha. I'm pretty sure Sequoia wrote the book on 'eating completely inappropriate things,' 'selective hearing' and 'making strange muppet noises when owners are trying to sleep.' She can't wait for your visit:)
