Taking Bacco for a swim

I felt like Bacco didn't get enough exercise this weekend, so we took a spin to dog beach near Porto d"Ascoli and he did his imitation of the olympic trials. As you can see, he is into surfing, retrieving and swimming. We are now empty for a week, but the vineyard stuff arrived, so we can get busy with putting up poles and wires and the workers have finally started on the patio in front of Nascondiglio di Bacco.
I am trying to negotiate with our sod folks as they augmented the price quite a bit since our 1st conversation. That never happens in america, does it?
Also, I am getting another bid to give them a little incentive to return to reason.
Here, it is hot in the 90's and no sign of rain for 8 days or so. We can use a bit if you have extra your way. Thanks for reading!
