Ended up having the day off, so packed up the pups for a quick day trip to get their swimmies on! Astronaut, of course, does not like the wet stuff to touch him, so he supervised from shore… Rosie, of course, still swims like a 3-legged fish and likes stealing the floaty from Zig.
Tired now, mom! Nap time!!
Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

You always take the best pics of your adventures! How pawesome to see the whole pack having fun at that gorgeous place! Everyone looks great.
I’m guessing that’s Shaver Lake? If I’m right, I grew up going there every summer 🙃. Lots of fond memories.
