Lake William Swim


Hi Ho!
I'm standing in the warm lake water
along the edge of Lake William
outside the city.
Do you see all that yellow?
Well, it's pollen 
and 
it's everywhere right now.
I won't let that bother me in the least.
I have some swimming to do
so I can strengthen my leg.


Very peaceful here
as you will see!


This is perfect for me right now!


Passing the neighbour's bright yellow boat and dock
I knife through the water allowing my paws to pull me into the shore,
also, my rudder tail helps direct me.


Oh yes, Mr. Orangie 
helps me out a lot.
Wouldn't be a good swim without Ol' Faithful!


The dog paddle ~~ stroke after stroke!
I know I'm getting better
as each day passes!

~~~

I hope you are enjoying your day 
as much as I am.

~~~

Come in for swim next time!

  1. Hi Sopie and Ron! I'm glad you're enjoying swimming in another amazing and beautiful place!! But somehow, I just think the water might be too cold for me to even wade in, or is it?

    1. The lake water is very warm. I know humans would be swimming if they didn't have to go to work!
      Water temps don't bother us because we are used to coldness. Ron was on a swim team in university so cold water training was all that he was used to. Jim...well!!!!!LOL

    1. Lakes are so welcome after dealing with the ocean and the onslaught of wave action. I need some calmness in my life. The lake really helped with that!

    1. Exactly ~~~ Debra!!

      Yesterday's 33 degree weather with 33 degree humidity pretty much defined the lake swim!!

  6. You are a good swimmer Sophie. Our dogs are some scared to swim, they only put their paws in the water

  7. It looks like a wonderful spot Sophie. Keep up with the good work and you'll be 100% in no time. Boris had a bad eye last week which we think was down to high pollen levels. But he's OK now.

    1. I will keep an eye on Sophie's eyes during this period. I was so surprised at the amount of pollen that was floating in the water and along the edge of the shoreline. I'm so used to oceans and there is no time for accumulation there!

  14. Hi Sophie. Looks like you got some algae in that lake. Hope you didn't get caught up in any water weeds.

    Replies
    1. I believe the algae is an over abundance of pollen! Unless the algae is the same colour. It doesn't bother me though, I just swim right through it!

  17. Aw, Sophie, I'm so sorry to hear about your paw! (I've fallen a little behind with blog reading.) Old injuries can come back to haunt us.. I speak from experience.. but I know you are getting the very best of care and that swim in the lake really looked enjoyable, so I won't feel too sorry for you. Also had a look at a post with your windblown ears. Tell Ron that he just keeps on getting better at his wonderful captures. Could you also tell him I loved his encouraging comment on my blog? Thanks, Sophie! Heal well and quickly!

  18. Hey Ron! I haven't figured out how to access my email on this dell computer, so I'm leaving a message here (PCs! Give me my Mac!). I'm in the hospital ~ have been here since Monday morning. I am okay! I'm hoping they let me spring this joint today ~ but with July the Fourth going on, I may not be able to get discharged. I'm emphasizing saving health care costs in order to break out. I'd love to get detached from this IV!!!! But after more than a decade of investigation, I remain complicated mystery Louise. LOL!!! Have a great day celebrating Jim's birthday, and please give SophieDoodle luvs and hugs for me. Heck give the birthday boy a big hug for me!
