I LOVE everyone's pictures and stories! Your mutts are beautiful!
We have 3 river dags, all of which are pound puppies. The dog on my profile is Hank, who is the most experienced of them all- and even though he does not like to swim, he loves to make rafting! I don't really like to swim either though...
The other two are a lab-pit-greyhound mix who was on her third trip at the pound due to her extreme activity level and a young pit who was going to be killed at the Denver shelter. Now they swim like fish for hours, and will run beside our mountain bikes bombing downhill sections for miles!
I've got to get a picture of all 3 of them.
We had a rottie who loved to boat as well. Rosie was not the most graceful swimmer...she sank like a stone...
And Dan, my friend Diana Wacker has been talking of a May Deso trip and your name has come up a couple times. Hope you've been caving a bit
