Last swim of the season

Swimming

I love how she always chooses the biggest sticks to fetch!

Shake off

That water was cold!

These pictures were taken about a week and a half ago. Unfortunately, I think that was the last swim of the season. Sarala was very nice and gave Layla a new life jacket she’d ordered for Tess which was too small. It fits Layla perfectly! Hopefully next spring she can go for a few swims wearing it and learn how to engage her hind end more. Right now she still does a lot of splashing and flailing with her front legs, although it doesn’t slow her down any. I finally ended this swim session because she was shivering uncontrollably. I have no doubt she would have kept going until she froze to death. It’s so strange that she’s like this, because usually she’s a drama queen about cold and wet. But introduce sticks, and she can ignore barely-above-freezing water. Ah, the joys of a high drive dog.
