Dogs have been a huge part of my entire 64ish years on this earth. I adore them. I love watching them play, interact with other dogs, people or other animals. They make me laugh and they make me cry, but most importantly, they enrich my life in so many ways.
I love training our dogs for agility, but I also love taking them places they love to go. Their most favorite extra curricular activity is a toss up between swimming and ball chasing so we try to combine both as often as we can. The more fun we have with our girls, the more they love playing with us. We must spell S-W-I-M-M-I-N-G or B-A-L-L or ALL hell breaks loose! Their excitement is intoxicating.
No matter where we travel, we always try to find a place where our girls can have fun!
Rather than write a long blog about why these things we do are so good for their body, mind and soul, I will let the photos and videos speak for themselves.
Josephine loved to go dock diving so we took as often as we could.
The beach is a great place to keep the dogs fit. Crushie loves to be chased by the Poodles. They learn to run fast and turn sharply.
Swimming is good for fitness, fun and fraternization.
The most favoritest thing on the planet!
