Testing Our Life Vests

As you know, me and Stanley received new canine life vests this past week and mine turned me into a statue.  So today we went to "test" them.  We went all the way to a big ocean called Pineview Reservoir.  It is 87 miles deep or maybe more.  We went to a private beach area and there was no one else there but 2 girls who were teaching their horses to swim.  (Too bad they were done when we got there cuz mom wanted a picture of that!)  Anyway, we went to the water and then our pawrents got us dressed in our life vests.  

Dad threw sticks into the water for us to fetch.



And everybody knows - I love to fetch!   


I am happy to report I NEVER turned into a statue!!!   

We had a blast and my vest NEVER bothered me at all!   
 
We swam for a really long time too.  It was so much fun!  We love our vests!

    Did your peeps put your Names and Em. Phone # and stuffs on your vests?? OUR mom did that fur OURS... in Perm. Marker. She is kinda a HEAD CASE about stuffs like that. You would think that we were gonna be WASHED AWAY down Stream and get lost or somethingy. Sheesh.
