Do you have to be concerned about alligators?

Thank you! Titan has always swam like a fish.. surprises me how graceful he can be lol.

And yes in some locations we have to worry.. This particular one is connected to the harbor and is rather small and shallow.. and it would be too cold for them right now. But yes I do worry on most occasions lol.. After some stories you might say I'm even a little paranoid. Ha!

If the ducks and geese are there, it's probably safe. Handsome young man.

Awesome! Looks like a blast. I'm so jealous it's warm enough for you to take your dogs swimming!

don't let your dog play with the ducks or geese in the water.
they'll drown him with no problem. your dog swims out to the ducks
or geese. they fly above him. then several of them or lots of them
land on his head or back and hold him under.

Did not know that.. good to know.. Thank you. I waited until they had gone far enough away that I knew he wouldn't swim after them and jusssst in case he attempted I had.. A stick. Haha.. full proof plan as when I have a stick nothing else exists but me. But my reasoning was more that I didn't want him to hurt the ducks.. not the other way around. Interesting.

Don't know about ducks but swans and geese are minions of the devil. Doggiedad has a good point. The summer camp I went to as a kid had a flock of Canada geese that would gang up and attack hikers. They have zero fear. O_o
