Dash has been so bored this summer that he’s started taking selfies on my iPhone.
A quick dip in the Patapsco River cooled both man and dog.
Charlie took him down to the river for a quick wade to cool off and pass the time.
Dash doesn’t really seem to mind getting a bath although he doesn’t get many.
Then he enjoyed (endured) a nice bath in the kitchen sink.
Both dogs, Rory and Dash, are remembering the coolness of winter when this photo was taken.
We’ve been wanting to create something to challenge our longhaired dachshunds who are now about 2.5 years old.
The PVC pipe was cut with a hacksaw — no special tool necessary.
We decided to build them an agility course.
The pieces of PVC were easy to put together with Ts and end caps.
The first obstacle we tackled were the weave poles. After looking up some inspirations here and here Charlie, Sug, and I headed to Lowe’s to get some PVC pipe and fittings.
Screws were added to the joints to make the uprights stay vertical.
I crunched the numbers and Sug and Charlie cut the tubing and put the event together.

We guided our doggies through it a few times on their leashes then let them go through off-leash with the lure of a treat.
At least Dash is getting better at selfies.
Hoping they’ll not only get the hang of it but also enjoy the challenge.
