    Default Took the boys to the lake....

    They guys have had so much energy as of late that I decided that what we needed was some good old fashioned out door fun. It's getting a little colder here in VA, and yesterday night was perfect sitting at about 70 degrees.

    I took them for a heavy round of fetch (they love tennis balls) and properly tired them out. Then I loaded them on the boat, and we did a quick little cruise.







    Would have been nice to let the guys have a swim, but it was getting dark and chilly, and I didn't feel like dealing with wet doggies.

    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    I would have if my wife was with me. I always worry they will jump in without their lifejackets and I won't be able to do anything about it. Taco (the fat one) sits at about 75lbs, and would sink like a brick. The puppy, Thor, could probably swim for days. They usually just bark at me until i get back on the boat.

    They wouldn't jump in, I can't even get them to jump in when they have their jackets on. They love it when I take them into the shallows though, and will do little laps out to where their feet can't touch and then swim back again, repeat.

    I will have to order another lifejacket for Taco. He's outgrown his and it can be passed down to Thor. I'm not sure if I can find one big enough to wrap around Taco!

    I'm always on the defense though, and definitely took my phone and keys out of my pockets in case one of them tried something crazy.

    We also saw a bald eagle, so that was pretty rocking:

    Beautiful photos I'm so glad they won't jump, because like you said they would sink fast, and I think I would DIE....and then DIE trying to save them. lol

    Thanks! I don't mind at all. They are the Julius K9 you probably hear people talking about. They are so easy to put on and take off. I ordered mine through an American distributor through Amazon.com,but I believe the company is European. I can't see your location, bc Im using a 3rd part app on my phone, but I can pm you the seller when I get home!
