We have been really busy with kid and dog activities leaving little time for posting but thought i would share our morning adventure. Though we take Mace swimming, hiking and boating we usually leave him home when we go kayaking. Today a big group of the kids friends wanted to hit the river kayaking and tubing. When booking a group tour the people suggested we get a canoe and take the dog. When we got there they had a life vest ready for him (it is part of the package but we had our own). He was pretty excited by all the activity and a bit confused when Girl went off in a tube and Boy and Husband in a kayak. I loaded him in and pushed off. Initially he insisted on standing and did a pretty good job with balance. I thought all was good.....until....
He spied her before I did. He was over the side before I could react. He really launched himself- enough to tip the canoe. He was on her pretty fast- and despite her protests he tried to climb aboard. Over she went. While girl and I righted ourselves Mace paddled around from tube to kayak of our friends, huge grin on his face. He manged to soak the only 2 people who did NOT want to be in the river- he didn't even bug the others.
