The Beach is Back

There was ice on the lake until April 28th this year, so Zaphod had been a full 6 months without a swim. He was one happy, happy boy on Sunday, when we made the first trip to the lake.

Running down the hill to jump in!

We ran into some friends. Ghost is our neighbour (in the red) and his foster brother Shadow (in black).
Remember how last time we saw Shadow he was aggressive, well this time no problems!
Shadow is waiting to go to his new home in Newfoundland. We wish him luck!

Phod and Ghost chatting

Lady was nervous as Shadow wanted Phod's toy and Phod can be a little possessive.
However, she is happy to report that when Shadow took it (and ran home with it and we had to go get it), Phod  only looked for it. 


  1. We bet that the water was still a tad chilly, but we can't blame you for wanting to get in there and swim. What a fun day at the beach with your friends.

  6. Whooa! You dove right in. I wouldn't share my toy either

  7. OH the JOY of the return of Spring... and the UN COVERING of the LAKE. HOW Refreshing and Fangtastic.
    WE are sooooo glad that you met up with your furends and that all went well. AND that you DID get your favorite toy BACK... after it was BORROWED.

  8. Oh my!!! The first swim of the season must be one of the BEST swims ever (not that I would know because I hate the water)! I am so happy that all your ice has finally melted away! To warm days spent swimming and playing with friends!

  9. This was a really great post!! Loved seeing the neighbors!!

  10. Yay!!! So glad you got to go for a swim!!!
    Two of my huskies are scared of the water! Haha!
    So glad there were no issues with Shadow too!
    Have a great day

  13. Well done, Phod and Shadow....sounds like Shadow has learned that life can be good. We wish him luck in his new home, too.

    Phod, you're a champion swimmer. Hope you get to go to the lake LOTS this summer.

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

  14. I bet the water was refreshing Phod!

  15. Phod looked like he had a great time. It's always good to hang out with friends and play water games.

    Aroo to you,

  18. I love how happy everyone looks!

  19. Dear Phod,

    I am very glad to hear that your beach is back! I do not swim, but I do like to wade and I would be very sad if there was no beach. (I can't imagine that! We have the beach all year round here! How awful for you that it goes away!)

    Enjoy your swims!
