Excuse the formatting as I am making this blog post on my phone. Big news… Oliver is a swimmer!
Every morning while we’re on vacation in Acadia, we’ve been taking him for an early morning walk to the ocean at either Ship Harbor Trail or the Wonderland Trail. We usually don’t see anyone until we begin our walk back to the parking lot, so with the solitude and quiet, we feel pretty comfortable letting him off the leash. The first couple of mornings he would merely dip his toes into the water, but he has very quickly become right at home in the ocean. Now he bounds right in after his ball, and we’ve learned that he’s an awesome swimmer!
Happy dog… lately I’d been worrying that he might have been getting a little chubby, but when you see him soaking wet, it’s pretty obvious that he’s doing just fine. Oliver… our swimming dog.
