Lake Life Returns - by Phod

Dear pals,

I kept making sad eyes at the Lady about not being able to go swimming so she texted my vet and asked when I could go swimming again.  For once I am thankful they are friends. He said "Couple of weeks for swimming as long as not itchy." Lady said "Phod says thanks for letting him swim." My vet said "Just trying to keep him happy." 

I did have to wait a few more days after this exchange to get to go (because of the weather and something about not wanting a wet dog in the house before friends came over), but it was worth the wait. Lady and Man quickly noted I could not swim as deep, I seemed to be taking in a lot of water. They aren't sure if it was because I was just toooooooooooooooo excited or if it is because I am a senior. Anyway, they kept me in shallower water and there wasn't much of a problem. I was just happy to get to go!

One happy boy!

It was hot enough that even Lee, who is not a water dog, joined in a bit!

She even got brave enough to go on the dock. Lady wonders if she is going senile because historically she has hated the dock. Mind you, this is the first time she could be off leash on the dock.

It was a great time and totally worth needing ear cleaning later!


  1. what a wonderful day... we are with Proessor Lee... no water is the best water ;O)

    HOOOORRRAAHHHHHHHHH>........sploosh...... sigh... life is good.... hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. You look so happy to be in your lake, Phod, and a great way to cool off!

  4. You sure look like you were having fun, Phod. That's a great way to cool down on a hot day.

  5. We can't believe you didn't melt in the water. We are deathly afraid of water. Like wicked witch afraid. You are so very brave.

  6. Hmmm. Gail tells me she is going to see if I like swimming in the river soon. I have a suspicion that I won't, despite all that you say Phod.

  7. What a happy Phod!!!

  8. Phod, you look so happy being in the water again!

  9. Woo hoo! What a great way to cool off on a hot summer day. So glad you're able to go back in the water!

  10. What a fun day at the lake! It was well worth the ear cleaning, I'm sure.

    Love and licks,

  11. Hi handsome friend, hurray for WATER! Yay! I am happy for you (despite the cleaning after!).
