I love going to Waterton National Park.  Every year I buy a season pass.  The park isn’t over run with people and it a great place to take Ande for a swim.  The water is very cold and clear and the scenery is great.  There is a secluded place where I can play with the dog.  The only problem is that sometimes when people see me playing with the dog they start hiking over.  Not that I mind but they might get very wet from a long haired dog shaking.


What’s needed in this doggy’s  paradise is unlimited sticks.


What is needed in my paradise is beautiful scenery.

Ande loves swimming.  It is her biggest passion and obsession.  When she was a puppy, I would take her for a drive and if I knew that we would be driving past water – any kind of water – I would have to keep the car windows rolled up.  She would try to jump out of the moving car in order to get to the water.  I’m was glad when I was able to change that behaviour.  Now she just sticks her nose out of the windows and whines and whines and whines…


Lift off and…


crash landing.


We do this over


and over.


Right now she isn’t having any fun at all.  There is a violent thunder and lightening storm going on.  It is shaking my house. She is hyper ventilating and trying to hide.  Some things just aren’t as fun.

Thanks Louise for the photos. What a great day!
