Columbus golden retriever

This morning I came across this photograph I took last summer of 6-year-old Drummer. It was so hot that evening that every single portrait of this handsome golden retriever featured his tongue hanging out - he couldn't stop panting! We kept it pretty quick and luckily he was very cooperative that we were in and out of the park quickly. Drummer got a big burst of refreshing air conditioning in the car on the way home!

We met at the Park of Roses, part of Whetstone Park in Columbus. It's too bad more of the roses were not in bloom in late summer. The fountain with the sun setting still made for a lovely scene.

Drummer's family takes him dock diving, which is how I became acquainted with them. I hope to see him in action someday! Jumping into a lake or pool would have felt great on this hot evening.
