The Life of a Boxer Named Gromit
Our 365 day project for 2010 has come to a close. I didn't sign up to do another 365 day project, instead I chose a 52 week project. I can work on some ideas that I have had and really be creative. Let the fun begin! At the start of this project, Gromit is 2 years and 2 months old.

An early morning romp with Grom's buddies down at the harbor. It was cold out. The dogs ran and ran and ran, then they found a dead seal and rolled in it. Then they stunk, stunk, stunk! It was bath time when we got home. A really nice long nap, and then it was time for pouncing. Here is Gromit's "look" just before he pounces. Notice, wont look directly at you, ears are back and up, overall goofy look in his face...

What a crazy day. The weather was beautiful. Sunny, warm...too warm for Gromit. I spent most of my afternoon at Dream Machines, talking, photographing, overall having a great time. Gromit stayed home with dad... It was really too toasty out from Grom. This is what he looked like about 30 minutes after I got home.

What a beautiful morning. I decided that I would take Grom to the harbor this morning. It was 7:45 when we got there and me played (me throwing the floating wooba) for a bit. What great light! Then we walked down to the cove, and theat is where we met Haley the white boxer and her friend Max. They all played for a while, then Haley and Max had to leave. We walked down a bit further and met up with two other young dogs, and played chase there for a while. Then, along came team Greyhound. 4 of them. Awesome. Grom would try to keep up! Anyway, here is today's photo taken while playing with the wooba...

After spending what seemed like an eternity trying to get my internet to function properly, I just shut everything down and we all went to sleep. This morning everything seems to be functioning fine. Anyway, Gromit and I went for a field romp yesterday afternoon. He likes to find theses patches of grass, and then either just sits down and stares out or lays down so you can't see him. What a goofy boy.

An absolutely beautiful day here on the coast. Blue skies, light breeze, just a bit warm outside for Gromit to play much, so I set up some lights, and played inside. Then we went out to lay in the sun. Then we came in and did a few more photos, then back outside to lay in the sun, then back in, then back out...

Today it is quite humid outside. Makes for a bit of a warm day, which I like, but Gromit prefers the mid 60's . We went out for a morning romp. Gromit ran straight for his watering hole. He just loves his pond. He loves pulling sticks off the bottom, fetching things as long as they don't go into the deep part. He still won't swim, but he loves the water!

Today was a busy day, we went for a nice long walk with a couple of our buddies, from Miramar up to the harbor and back. Then home for breakfast. Grommie was exhausted and laying out in the sun was the second item on his list after breakfast. Funny, I tried to take a few pictures of him napping, but then he was all in my face with his toys, to I grabbed my secret weapon...bubbles. I laughed so hard!

The weather was just bizarre today. Pouring rain, hail, sunshine, windy, calm...the only thing we didn't get here is snow! Thank goodness! In between the madness, Tim, Grom and I made it out for a morning romp. It seems as though I have a lot of pictures of Gromit running, sleeping and sitting. Funny thing is, Gromit really seems to like to sit. Sit and watch things around him. Today we made it to the top of the hill and plop, down he sat, funky curl to his lip and all. Reminded me of the King on Shrek looking over his kingdom...hehehehe!

Day 99 already, it seems as though we just started this project. Wow... Today was a really nice warm day. Almost too warm for Gromit, but all I have to do is turn the hose on with the shower selected and he just loves to drink off the hose. It is really funny to watch, not so easy to photograph while holding the hose....

Today it was sunny, windy and cold. The important part was that is was sunny! I love that! Gromit and I had a busy day. We went walking and hiking with a bunch of our buddies, and then came home and hung out. When it was time for our late afternoon romp, it was just the two of us, so I grabbed the camera and out we went. I took quite a few photos, the colors were awesome, and Grom looked so good! When we got home, well, after plucking 17 or so ticks off of him - yuk...

I am finally getting a chance to post this...Super busy yesterday! Don't know why that happens, but it does. Grommie spent his morning hanging out with some friends while I took a little sweetie out for a few hours. We had soooo much fun! But back to mom she went, time for a nap, and Grom had to come home and we had some work to do before the car show...run, run, run. Here is Grom hanging out at the car show.
