Summer Play Time and Doggy Life Jackets

Willow loves to swim. Jewel not so much, but she will chase the ball. We've always been a bit nervous that the bigger dogs, or waves, at Magnusun Park might inadvertantly dunk one of them. Or fatigue might come into play. It just so happened that one day when we were taking them swimming, there was dog fair going on near the entrance to the dog park. We ended up buying the girls life jackets. I don't know if Willow really liked it or could tell the difference in floating ease, but the jacket held her butt high enough that you could see her tail wagging. Here she is happy as a clam.

She loves to swim but will only swim out to daddy or mommy.

Uh-oh, Willow doesn't like to be approached by big dogs on land, let alone water...

Little Willow

Willow is doing fine these days but the last couple weeks she has had ailments. First off was the development of a limp. We took her to the vet but he could not decisively say what was wrong. Anything from a sprain to necrosis. He did prescribe Bosellia. When wrapped in cream cheese, Willow ate it and wanted more. Otherwise she wouldn't. The Bosellia seemed to work. In actuallity we noticed that she moved better and faster than before. Perhaps she has some fundamental issue, that the herbal medicine is able to take care of. In any case, the limp is gone.

After that we found a syst, or something oozing on her paw. It didn't hurt her, and seems to have cleared up as well. No idea what that was. Anyway, she seems to be back to normal...This means she's as bossy as ever!
