      Summer - Cookie's Adventures

      Another summer is coming to an end, and I wanted to share some pictures from our adventures. We have visited some beautiful places, swam in rivers and lakes, hiked a bit, and enjoyed the sunshine.

      We have been a few times to a village close to our city (my grand-dad used to have a cottage there and as a kid I spent my summers over there). It's a serene place for a walk, with fields and a forest and of course, a river.






      Our lake in the city. It's too crowded during the summer months though, and dogs are not really welcome, so we don't go there often and when we do, it's early in the morning.






      The Danube, of course! Also a small beach on an island on Danube, called the "Great War Island". During the summer months, the military puts a bridge to the island.




      At the end of June, we spent a day in another city which has two lakes nearby. So Cookie swam in two lakes that day and had a stroll in the forest-park nearby.








      (TBC)

      In July, we visited a few more interesting and beautiful places. Some of you may have already seen the pictures from the small river named Gradac.






      Then another lake. It's beautiful because of its tirquoise-colored water. I swam there with Cookie too. We first visited the place last year, and I loved it so much I had to revisit.






      And last as far as road-trips go, we visited a village near the Bosnian border, and Cookie swam in the Drina river (the river is literally the border between the two countries).






      And also in the region, there is a lovely little waterfall you can get to after a short, 30-minute hike, so we couldn't pass on the opportunity.

      But of course, most of our days were spent in our favourite fountain








      I am not a big fan of summer (I like fall best) but it gives us the opportunity for so many fun activities, especially with a dog that loves the water. In less than two weeks we will be leaving for Greece and we will spend four weeks there, in hopes to extend the swimming season for a bit (early autumn is still warm in Greece).

      For the end, enjoy a video of Cookie in the famous fountain!

      You know how much I love seeing pictures of Cookie enjoying his wonderful life...and I get a vicarious thrill imagining how much fun you have being with him. Beautiful pictures (glad you included the one of what I called his "puppy pose", looking at rocks in the Gradac)...those of us who have been around a while really appreciate seeing Cookie being able to have that wonderful life.

      Thank you so much. I am really thankful after all he has been through that he is still mobile and pretty active for his age.. I try to do my best to keep him active and healthy for as long as possible, he is such a wonderful boy.

      Despite some unhappy experience in his life, his rendevous with that car, Cookie is one of the luckiest, happiest dogs. No wonder your photos are so good, how could they not be with Cookie for a subject?

      Oh Cookie, such a handsome fellow. There are several of these that I love. The waterfall one especially. However it is always nice to see you enjoying your favorite fountain.

      Wow, those photos are beautiful. Those moments you have captured are priceless. Looking at the pictures I feel like I'm there with you. I can feel the water splash from Cookie as he shakes the water from his coat. Amazing. The first image is delightful. I love the ears. All of them are. Have fun on your next journey and please give Cookie a big hug for me.
