Swimming in February!
We were able to go swimming last weekend at the Comal River. With air temperatures in the high 70's and water temps in the low 70's, a refreshing dip was had by all members of the pack. Laz LOVES to leap into the water after his tennis ball. He is so sweet though because when one of the humans jump in, he watches and makes sure we come up OK. If we take too long under water, he comes looking for us. What a sweetheart. He is really starting to get some distance when he jumps in.
Moses is now comfortable with long retrieves. He has also started a new habit of swimming to the opposite shore to chase whatever is over there. Luckily, it is a wooded area, and he romps around over there until we can convince him to come back. He is starting to open up his paws to go faster in the water (his paws are webbed like a duck for swimming). Laz has already mastered this skill and is an extremely fast swimmer.
Of course, Kevin LOVES swimming, any time of year, and especially loves swimming with his water dogs. Be sure to click on the pictures to see them up close. It is worth it. Laz shaking off is especially funny.
