Welcome to Seasonal Sundays.
Our beach house is very canine friendly. The keepers of the house are my two Bedlington Terriers (Baci on the left and Dolce in the middle) and my brother’s West Highland Terrier, Princess.
Although all of them play Life Guard, Baci is definitely the water dog.
We can’t keep…
…out of the water!
No worries, she’s fine. She does this again, and again, and again.
Some think that the reason that Baci wears the pink polka dot life jacket is for swimming purposes, but that’s not the case. Several years ago, when my youngest daughter was that much younger, Baci’s swimming antics used to terribly upset my daughter. She was afraid that Baci would drown and there is not stopping her. There is no chance of that as Baci is an awesome swimmer and clearly loves it. The life jacket on Baci gave my daughter a tremendous amount of comfort.
So all of these years later why do we keep using the life jacket? Well, Baci is a skinny mini (that’s the nature of the breed, certainly not due to a lack of care) and can actually fit through the railings of the gates around the deck. It’s now standard procedure to not let Baci out on the deck without her life jacket on or she’ll escape! The other two don’t have that issue!
Do you have any crazy antics taking place at your home this summer?
