Patpool2

Pat tore a toenail completely off his rear passenger foot about a week ago.  I've thrown him into the pool to swim laps and keep fit.   He seems to love it; he gets to jump in after a ball (never allowed otherwise) and follow me along the side for 5 – 7 laps at a time, for about a half an hour or so.  Some of my other dogs half-heartedly follow for a few laps, but really Pat is stronger and they, frankly, don't give a shit. They are dogs in chronic repose.  I throw a ball for them all the time.

Now when Pat goes outside, he runs straight to the pool gate.  He's obsessed.

This can really only backfire if the pronovice field at Lacamas has a pond.
