    And since there was discussion of life vests in Sara's thread, Snipe is wearing her Hurtta life vest, which we love. It's strong enough and supportive enough that on Saturday I was carrying her around by the handle for a little while (much easier than expecting leash manners when zomgdogsarejumpinginWATER!!!11!!1! was running through a certain puppy's head ;) ).

    Personally, I think that 7' leap of hers means she'll be great in EV, too. Can anyone say "Iron Dog"?!?! Unfortunately she's juuust over the height requirement to compete in LapDog. :p 'Cause seriously, how cute would a LapDog Iron Dog be?!

    Yoko, here's a pic of her vest up close:

    Go snipe go!! There is a border/Boston lapdog who does iron dog around this area that I totally swoon over, it's such an adorable goober!

    Snipe is way too cute, the perfect mix of Aeri & Kes.

    Ack Snipe is adorable. <3 Good for her (and you)!! I might look into those life jackets for Tipper....she can swim but it's really frantic. I'm thinking a life jacket might improve that.
