Just back from our annual vacation to Hatteras’s namesake Cape Hatteras North Carolina.  She had a blast, and didn’t skip a beat.  She is even starting to hold her breath again and dive with three legs.  Happy Fall everyone!

Oh my gosh what a lucky dawg! She is making the most of life on three and not letting anything stop her. What a pawesome time! It looks like the perfect summery getaway. May the good times continue!

Thanks Jerry, we sure try to make the best of every situation!  Sad to see the summer go, although it is about 90 degrees here today!

Great photos! Great diving form Hattie!! smiley_clap I never thought about dogs hold their breath when diving but it makes sense  – I guess they are like seals. Arf arf.

I hope Hattie gets a long summer to continue to enjoy the sun and water.

What a great photo! She is sooooo pretty, especially in that photo. What a joy!

P.S. I also didn’t know dogs could hold their breath under water. We always learn stuff here 🙂

Thank you everyone for the kind words.  I wish I could take credit for the photos, but that is all my girlfriend.  She also manages her instagram.  And for those who didn’t know that dogs could hold their breath I have attached a pre-amp video of her fetching tennis balls off of the bottom of the pool.

That is CRAZY! Only a Lab! WOW! smiley_clap

We would never catch our Wyatt or Jerry doing such a wild thing in water. That’s so pawesome! Thank you for sharing and enlightening us about dogs holding their breath underwater. You made our day icon_lol
