Doggie Dip Day '08
Doggie Dip Day 2008 finally rolled around this past weekend, and it marks the greatest day of the year for Lazarus, as well as the beginning to the end of the summer. Doggie Dip Day is when the spring fed pool at Landa Park is opened to dogs and their owners for swimming and fun. There were several chocolate labs and many labs of various colors. There were dogs of all types though and all seemed to have a good time.
Laz was, of course, the best swimmer (totally unbiased opinion) and didn't get out of the water the entire time (12-4) except for the occasional treat and to tinkle. Laz even learned to use the ladder to get out of the pool so as to not waste any energy getting out and preserving energy for swimming.
Moses did quite a bit of swimming, and especially liked fetching the pink and purple frisbee. Both Laz and Mos jumped off the "dock" in the middle of the pool and, although Moses was scared to do it, he was proud of himself after. Mostly, Moses enjoyed meeting pretty ladies and getting pets.
Jack and Ellen also came. Jack was tentative at first of the water, but he did do a little swimming and enjoyed running around with all the dogs as well.
