rockin' the new navy camos

Senior Chief Zeke of is modeling the new Navy Work Uniform, a stylish 'digital' blue camo. He is sorry he hasn't posted in a while but has been very busy avoiding the heat. Zeke tries to get his play time in early in the morning and then relax in the cool during the hottest parts of the day. He was also very disturbed by this nasty business with Gov. Sanford, Zeke met him earlier this year (See posts here and here), and Zeke liked the governor a lot--total bummer.

The bugs are also out in full force now that it is so wonderfully humid in SC. Zeke got into some fire ants or something like that and ended up with a bunch of bumps from infected bites on his head. Dr. Chad gave him some antibiotics, but we guess its just going to be a casualty of playing in the woods so much.

Fathers Day and Dog Days

For Father's Day Zeke's dad wanted to go to the baseball game, because it was also the third dog day game of the season for the Charleston Riverdogs. It was pretty hot, so we didn't stay for the whole game, but Zeke got to see about 6 innings of shutout baseball. Its a dog day Fathers Day at the Joe!
Dad helps Zeke and Sadie cool off.

Between innings game of musical sit.

Buddy's Barber Shop

Need a haircut but don't want your lab to be lonely? Buddy's Barber Shop is Zeke's solution! Whenever dad needs a trim he goes to see the dog loving stylists at Buddy's. Dad gets a good haircut and Zeke gets loving while sitting in the waiting area. Zeke was a very good boy today, he came inside and laid right down without an fuss. The sound of the clippers might have made him a little nervous.
Thanks for being so hospitable ladies!

Montreux Bar and Grill

Zeke ate out this week at Montreux Bar and Grill in Summerville. They keep moving the outside seating around so it has been hard to figure out when we can go there (evidently you cannot serve alcohol on the sidewalk in front of of the restaurant, but its okay if the tables are setup on the side of the building). Anyway, it finaly worked out, and Zeke got to help dad and mom with their delicious dinners. He got his own pie plate with cold water. Definitely a cool place to eat and hang out. Zeke out front.
Dad shares some of his killer nachos.

Zeke relaxes while mom enjoys an adult beverage.

USAF Heritage Aire Celtic Ensemble

This evening Zeke went to the Air Force Heritage Aire Celtic Ensemble concert where dad was running sound. The group is based out of Langley AFB but tour all over the world. When they arrived during setup, they were very excited to see Zeke and everyone came over to pet him. It was a great concert and Zeke had a lovely well behaved time.

sunday hiking

Over the Friday-Saturday-Sunday range, Zeke went swimming all three days and had a blast. He jumped into the water from the ledge today two times; which is a major step towards him overcoming his apprehension of jumping off of docks into the water. Trying to utilize his initial get out of the car energy along with redirecting the fear by immediately throwing a fun bumper after he climbs out back out. We ran into some folks out walking and swimming their two labs as well.

We also went for a hike this morning, inadvertently scared some quail and got caught in some rain.

Zeke goes Greek!

Zeke chillin' by the table.

This evening after a long day at work; Zeke decided to try out the Continental Corner. A lovely Greek restaurant that has been in Summerville for way longer than Zeke. We had seen other folks sitting outside with their dogs before, but this was Zeke's first try. The waitstaff was very friendly and brought Z a container of ice water to drink. He even got some puppy love from a lady who told us about her two boxers at home who love to eat Greek food. Zeke shared some of the grilled chicken from mom's pasta salad and thought it was delicious!
