My Dock Dog

On Sunday, we ventured back to the beach for the first time since Phod cut his paw. Both dogs were sooooooooooo excited!

Our lake access is a small beach we share access to with 2 other homes. This year one of our neighbours installed a dock.  The first time we went to the beach and Hailey saw the dock, she barked, and barked and barked at it.  Now she is brave and will go on it.

Phod wasn't scared and on the weekend discovered he could jump off it! I so wish the car wasn't so traumatic for him (he gets soooooooooo sick) because this would be his sport.

FYI: Re the ball debacle - his current favourite ball is a chuck it ball. It is just a different one. He is now reluctantly playing fetch with the new ones, but I think he intentionally misplaced the new orange one in hopes of getting his precious back.


  1. You could be in the next Olympics! Look at you go!!

  2. oh dock jumping is so much fun - well done phod

  3. Way to go, Phod!!! Look at you jump right into that water! You could definitely be a dock diving doggie!

  4. Wow what a splash! Good jump! I'm glad the screen is between me an d the water hahaha

  5. What a fun time! Me and Stanley will get to swim on our play date today if it doesn't storm and ruin it for us.

    Your Pals,

  8. Lovely to see all that fun.
    I have a question although it might seem really nuts. Where does he sit in the car ?
    Try, yes, I know it will seem nuts..... TRY and put brown paper under him where he sits. Worth a try, worked for Freya :-) xxx She hasn't thrown up since :-) Except for the time she ate the snail. X

  9. Woohooo! Love the video!!!!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  10. You are so lucky to have a lake to play in.

  11. We didn't like the bridges on the walkway at first, so we know a dock would be scary. Glad to hear Phod is back in the game!

    XXXOOO Bella Roxy & Dui

  12. Great jump in the water! We would probably just sink Ha ha

  13. I'm glad everyone is having fun again!

  14. Wow Phod that's amazing! We have a dock at our family lakehouse, but I never was able to get Shiner to jump off of it.

  15. How very awesome!! We love the way Hailey is cheering you on!!!

  16. Can Phod see out of the car window??? I've found that keeps some dogs from getting sick! The dock looks wonderful!
