Decided to post a short video of one of my beach adventures! Once again the water was too cold for the humans but that didn’t stop me! And yes, I am well aware that my legs do in fact look like sticks..
So guess which crazy doggy decided to take a dolphin dive into the lake this weekend?
Since the weather was warmer this weekend (hovering above freezing), we decided to take a trip to the lake. When we got to the beach area we decided to give Riley some off-leash time. While Riley loves to jump around in the water and get his feet wet, he doesn’t actually do much swimming.
When we let him off-leash he immediately headed towards the water, got his feet wet and had a little drink. He came back and we played some fetch along the shore.
Boy was I surprised when in the middle of the game he decided to make a mighty leap of dock-dog proportions into the lake!
And of course he was unfazed by the icey cold waters and wanted to continue playing. Since the sun was going down and the temperature was dropping we decided to go home.
So what I want to know is, what is the craziest thing your pup has done? 🙂
I know I don’t normally do lengthy posts but as 2013 is coming to a close I’ve been doing a lot of reflection on my year with Riley. It’s amazing how far he’s come from that scared little puppy to the (more or less) confident dog he is today. Of course, he’s not perfect and still gets into mischief every now and then but I still feel like the luckiest person in the world. In lieu of this I’ve decided to create a reflection post of this past year, both the good and the bad.
And there you have it, my summary of 2013. So far, I’m feeling very optimistic heading into the new year. Best of luck to all of you too in 2014!
Also, please feel free to share any of your reflections as well!
Sorry for the lack of posts! I’ve been super busy lately (much to the dismay of Riley..)
Here’s a photo I meant to post a while back. The one thing I love about Riley is his enthusiasm. He may be a lazy bum at times, but when he does choose to do things he does it with reckless abandon.
Since I’m not a leg lifter, this is the only evidence left behind from my adventures.
