Just for fun, I thought I’d share with you our afternoon at the river with the dogs. Bogart has always loved the water. At our old house, he would swim in the retention ponds and get filthy in the murky water.
Here, we just don’t have that opportunity. We have a creek somewhere, but the land is sloped and heavily forested with so many ravines, we haven’t explored our property the way we might. Cocoa has never been to the lake or the river, so we were interested to see how she’d take to it.
Our sweet puppy is enthusiastic about life and that includes water. Baby Girl was disappointed that we’d forgotten to bring a ball, but Bogart adapted to a stick with no problem. I’m pleased to note that the only sibling rivalry we experienced on Father’s Day was of the canine variety. Bogart would swim out and grab the stick and Cocoa would try to steal it from him. When the stick was waterlogged and sank, Bogart would put his whole head underwater and dive till he retrieved it.
There was a lot of barking, splashing, and shaking going on; and I for one had a great time laughing at their antics.
By the time the day was over, we had some very tired dogs.
Today is the last day of school, and I’m looking forward to the relaxed schedule, sunshine, and family time summer brings.
Hope you’re out enjoying some summer fun.
