Hi everybodyheart

I thought I post this video which shows how big dogs can exercise and have fun at the same timeclown

Of course, the poor ladies helping her were exhausted by the time the 4 laps were done.

So, if anybody is worrying about how well their giant furries are going to do (especially if they can’t swim, like my girl) here’s the proof of the pudding.

The first and second sessions were not as glamorous, Eurydice panicked quite a bit and would hit the water hard with her front leg trying to figure out what to do rather than swimming as she now does (proud mom sigh)

Sending you all a big hug, cuddles to your sweeties and exhausted woof woofs from miss cowheart

Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

This is so great! I love how she has a life buoy around her neck. She looks so determined – perhaps she’s trying to get it over with quickly.

Thanks for the video and laugh for the day.

Kitty cat snuggles for you and the family.

Oh my DOG I love it! Especially how it takes THREE people to swim with her! She is truly amazing, thank you so much for sharing her session with us!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
