Nico Ready for Some Football! (a photo)

Lately, he’s been struggling on the walks because it’s been so hot. So, we need to take some water with us so he can take a drink every so often. Anything to get him his beloved treats!

I did a reverse Google image search and couldn’t identify what type it was. Looks like it may either be a geranium or a hydrangea. I’m no gardener, so I don’t know, but let me know in the comments if you do! Happy springtime!
