Fred's in love...

The other day, I blogged about Fred's swimming adventure. While we were there, every once and a while Pup would actually stop swimming for a bit and try to relax. When she did this, Fred figured it was a good time to try to get "acquainted" a little better. Granted Pup is a girl and Fred, well, he's a boy, but that's about it. Both dogs have been responsibly, "altered". However, Fred spent most of his spare time, trying to get Pup to notice him. Poor guy, he really gave her his best "moves" too.
Alas, she just wasn't interested. I guess size doesn't matter, not in Fred's world anyway.

"Hey baby, wanna get lucky?"

Fred Swims!

I am sorry it's been so long since my last blog. The weather here finally started acting like summer, so I've pretty much been doing things outside as much as possible.

Anyway, today, my daughter and I went to the river with her room-mates dog Pup, and of course Fred.
She's only 4 but she really didn't want anything to do with Fred. Great dog though.

It was a terrific day to be at the river. Not too much wind, just enough to keep it pleasant. It was a perfect day to take Fred for a swim.

Fred's not real fond of the water and I don't think he ever will be. He will never go in the water by himself, I don't think. He might go in if I was all the way in, but, like Fred, I'm not a big fan of the water either. Who knows. I think it was good good for him to see another dog fetching and swimming though.
If you look close, you can see water drops flying off Pup's tail. (above), you probably have to click on the photo to see it better.

Here is a little video I put together of Fred swimming.

He so funny. He actually climbed up into that chair, I am sitting in a chair next to him. He would've preferred to sit with me, of course, but that wasn't gonna happen. So he sat in that chair and acted pretty pathetic.
I like the way Pup's tail is flagging by in this picture. Not sure if Fred appreciates it though.

It doesn't get much better than this for me!

Not long after, we set the chairs up on dry land. The wake from the boats and jet skis was getting pretty obnoxious and my chair kept shifting. So we moved onto dry land and I set Fred up on a towel.
Much better!

There are some very nice homes on the other side of the river from where we were.

They were too far away for my camera, but I think you get the idea.

The weather is predicted to be like this for quite some time. All I can say is it's about time time summer showed up! I am looking forward to a few more trips to the river while it lasts. (Sorry Fred, you're coming with)
