Thanks for the recommendation for the Ruffwear Float Coat . I will order one.

Also , I can use it instead of the harness when we go to the beach. 

Here and Now

This is a video of Sadie last summer, with four legs, running with me mountain biking.

She can do every thing but this, since it would be too much for her now.

She's such a lucky dawg to have Tahoe in her back yard! What a beautiful day to head out.

And that trail, wow! Yeah, that kind of thing would be too much for her now but if you had a rugged dog stroller you could take her on some excellent, wider paths for a nice day on wheels. 😉

I was breathless  and exhausted  on that trail run jist watching  her!!  That was inn insane how fast she was going!!   OMD!!   I felt like I was on one of those "virtual video trips.  Quite a Zen experience too!  Thanks for sharing.

Yeah, it would be I teresti g to see if she would take to a stroller.  A lot of dogs still go on hikes, or runs.  They hop out and hike or run for awh, and then willingly  hop in the stroller for a bit of chauffeured bliss😎

Now, about that swim!!  WOW'  She's quite flawless and very well balanced with her swimming skills.   Her focus on retrieving her prize was so much fun to watch.    With this kind of activity and joy, I don't think she misses trail running at all.  And swimming  is a great way to be really active, while helping her joints and...Sasie gets to be Sadie!!

Sadie thanks for showing everyone how to live life   to the fullest as a tripawd!😎

Hugs

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

She seems to like it. It does keep her head up higher above the water.  I will post a video of her swimming with it.

That's terrific! I'm glad you can see the difference in how much it helps a Tripawd swim. We would love to see video!

WOW!  That Sadie is quite an Olympian Champion in the water!  Just beautiful  to watch her so happy and strong!!  I know Jerry will use this as a go-to video of how well a tripawd can swim and how helpful the floatcoat is😎

Thanks for the video.  It just makes my heart smile to see Sadie get to be Sadie👏

Oh my DOG! Look who swam farther and faster and longer than her four-legged pals? YEAH SADIE!!!

She is such an excellent swimmer. Her athletic capabilities just keep making us smile over here, she's so darn fit. I'm glad the Float Coat will help her stay that way. Sadie's going to have an excellent summer! 

Thanks for sharing.
