Molly does not want to swim, she gets scared and the closest hydro therapy place is about 45 miles away, we may need to look into that, just dread the drive. We only have the ocean here for swimming, it is cold year round, even though our daytime air temps are nice. Most people wear wetsuits to go in the ocean. We do have a river, but technically dogs are not allowed on the state owned trails to access it. Not worth the stress of hiding from state park rangers.
