Ohhhhhhh Yes! This was the one which attracted my boys like a magnet, which I mentioned in the previous post Self Drive To Desaru. After dropping our luggage, kids slipped into their swimming suit without hesitation and put on the wristbands a requirement from Lotus Desaru Beach Resort, if you want to use the [...] read more »
Kirby has dabbled in rally and agility with pretty good results. He's very smart and picks up quickly. He enjoys agility which he can do pretty fast but he's not fast enough to seriously compete.
Swimming is where he excells. He absolutely loves the water, spending every second he can in the water. He swims, jumps, and dives with full abandonment. Sadly it's not something he can compete in simply because there aren't any avenues open to him where we live. However, once a year, he gets to play and compe... read more »
We are so excited because today is the 2nd Annual Dog Paddle event sponsored by the Oktibbeha County Humane Society.

We made our first trip of the summer to White Lake in Eupora, Mississippi. It's about 40 minutes from our house but worth the trip since they allow dogs to swim in the lake. We usually pack some food and drinks along with the usual beach paraphernalia to spend the day. Kirby loves, loves, loves the water so we have a lot of fun with him.
He has outgrown his life vest and we have a new one on the way. Meanwhile we have been using his long tie off to keep up with him. He's a very fast swimmer so if he sh... read more »
