Pond Play

Instead of going to the Fort on Friday, we went to the Pond on Thursday.  We like the Fort but there has been some construction going on where we play and the mosquitoes have been terrible.

This is our friend Annie.  She is a beauty!  She has been very sick with Heart Worm (despite the fact she takes the monthly treatment). But she is feeling better now and FINALLY got to come out for a walk.  We were so happy to see her again!
Of course Bert was there.  Everyone knows Bert!
This is our new friend Cooper.  We just met him for the first time but he seems to be a really nice guy.

We never remember these guys names but they start with a "T".  We just call them "The Twins".
This is the pond.  A trail goes around the pond.

We walked along the trail and at the end is a spot officially known as "Bert's Swimming Hole".

Stanley and Dad

Me and Stanley got to the swimming hole.  Mom and Dad had our swim ropes on so we didn't get into trouble with the river's current.  Dad threw out sticks and we swam out to retrieve them.


We love this game.  Our peeps are very careful so our swim ropes don't get tangled.

Rats!  Stanley got a head start on me!

We got into the part where it was over our heads and we had to actually swim.  We also stick our heads underwater.  We are not scared at all but after awhile I got very cold!

Then it was time to get back on the trail and go to the truck.


It was a beautiful evening!

I was so glad you guys were there. And you both sure have me beat with the swimming thing, your very good. I like the name "The Twins". It suits Ty and Tucker (I can't tell them a part). Fun times. Can't wait until the trip.
Blessings,
Goose

Incredible photos Murphy. I think you are one quick pup to learn to swim so fast. I love this area and so glad you were able to go with your friends. Hunter went to school today and the teacher said he is doing so much better;; he even walked with a new lady(though he kept watching me the whole time)and he played with her German Shepherd and enjoyed it.
Have a great weekend.
