I decided on a whim to take all three dogs to the provincial park near my house this afternoon. It was really nice out and I was tired of just sitting in the yard, so off we went for a few hours. Ripley discovered that he actually can swim, although he still isn't very good at it. But at least he didn't sink this time. And he also discovered the joys of leaping off the creek bank into the water. Dance did it once (for the first time ever, and only once) and after she did it he was pretty sure that was definitely the best way to fetch the toy from then on, haha. Keira, as usual, just hung with me and watched the other two play. She cooled off in the water a couple times but she's too prissy for such fun and games. Anyhow, it was a really great afternoon. It was the first time I took all three by myself there (because I have to take the train to get there) and they were all perfect. A lot more coming!
