SWIMMING HELPS MENDING


Hi Ho Everyone!
I am coming out of the river 
taking a morning swim
which is supposed to strengthen and help my leg.
I am 8 1/2 years young now,
so something was bound to de-rail me
since I love to run and hop so much.
I am presently waiting for an order of
DASUQUIN
to arrive on my Doodle doorstep
to help with my bones etc.
It has been ordered on Amazon
with an arrival due date of August 18th
at the earliest.

In the meantime,
I SWIM and SWIM
which is my favourite pass time anyway.

Check out my video below 
and 
you'll see how well I am doing
and
maybe you'll enjoy a peaceful moment
from my world to yours.



See what I mean!

NAMASTE!!!

  3. Swimming and the help of Glucosamine will together work wonders. A beautiful swimming place for everyone, and how cold is the water??

    1. Sophie Sweetie has returned with her inquisitive / assertive self and as soon as the Dasuquin arrives, I know she will be feeling even better. It has been a stressful week and seeing the vet just added to the stress. They kept us waiting for an hour. Gees, you'd think they were doctors....lol!!

  4. I'm sorry to hear the news you three. Is it arthritis? Sophie certainly is looking agile in the video.

    1. It's really difficult to know at this point Craig, so glucosamine has become part of her diet.

      She has a rash on her lady parts too.

      Oh the indignity!!

      Not to mention 'OCD licking' the roof of her mouth!

      What has happened this year anyway?

      We'll get down to the bottom of all this mystery misery!!

      Thanks for asking!

    2. Hmmm - almost sounds like an alergic reaction of some sort. Good luck boys.

    1. The water is very warm and she wants me to go in with her.........only thing is she gets excited and her claws can scratch me!

      So I allow her to swim 'til her hearts content!

  9. Aww Sophie, sounds like you need a health check with Mr. Vet to make sure you're in good health.
    Enjoy your swimming xx

    1. You are spot on correct Eileen ~~ been to the vet and now are dealing with the decisions that the adults arrived at ~~~ oh the nonsense of waiting for adults to figure things out!!

  10. Loved this, Ron, on so many levels! It's fascinating to see how Sophie swims downstream to compensate for the current so she can intercept Mr. Orangie! First morning home for me, so now I'm catching up on all my blogs! Take care!

    1. So glad you enjoyed the video Louise! Making videos takes me forever, so slow with the uploading. Oh well, now I will make shorter ones for awhile at least!

      Sophie manoeuvres the water very well doesn't she!!

  11. What a great looking dog--my dog is getting old, but having been bred in the desert, he doesn't care for large bodies of water

    1. Sophie has the water genes from both sides of her parents ~ Labrador Retriever and Poodle!

      We just returned form the river now and she sleeps contentedly.
