River Dogs

This weekend we took the younger dogs (Kittie, Abby & Indy) to Roaring Run watershed, for a *long* hike along the river. I hate not taking everyone, but we knew this would be a long day and it's not good for Rudy to be out walking that far. She's fine on hikes an hour & a half or less, but more than that and she starts to get sore. It's a good thing, I didn't check the time while we were out, but realized that we were out for a little over five hours.

Abby loves to swim and she gets better at it every year.

The littel daredevil makes me nervous though, she gets in the water and just goes!!!

She does the same thing they do on the trails if Bill and I get any space between us, she swims back and forth, keeping an eye on both of us.

Indy just loves Abby, she's never far from her big sister.....whether Abby likes it or not.

Time for more swimming!

Indy's a natural in the water, but still isn't too sure about all that wet stuff.

She's happier on the dry land.

I love the pics. Looks like everyone had an awesome time. Is this place in Pennsylvania? It's absolutely beautiful. Sidney and Jasper would have a blast there. Jasper would be like Indy watching from from the safety of dry land Sidney swimming along.

I wonder if Sidney can swim like Abby? He loves getting in the bathtub for his bath.

Yes, this is in Apollo, PA maybe 40 minutes east of Pittsburgh.

We never realized just how well Abby could swim until we went somewhere that Bill and I could go out in the water, otherwise she's pretty content to just swim out a few feet and turn right back.

That's too funny about Sidney, Abby loves baths too, maybe Helen's breeding water loving pugs.
