It’s always fun to frolic around off leash. It’s better to do so in the snow!!! 😀
Guess what everyone?! My first birthday is in 3 days!!!! That didn’t stop me from receiving a really cool early birthday present on Memorial Day…a Ruffwear Big Eddy Float Coat! Although the water at Matapeake Beach was mostly too shallow for a life jacket, I was very comfortable playing with it on. That’s good to know because the next time I go somewhere with deep water, I will make sure I’m wearing my sporty red life jacket. I really like the design of the Big Eddy because it fits securely on me yet allows freedom to play around.
Here’s an interesting story. My friend Riley knows how to swim but I haven’t really been tested yet. At one point, she and I chased a ball thrown extremely far out into the Chesapeake Bay. Thank goodness I still had on my life jacket because we were in deep water. I would have freaked out without it!!!!!
However, since I was wearing my life jacket, I calmly swam back to more shallow water before I hippity hopped back onto shore. I felt so safe with my life jacket that I chased another ball waaaay out there in the deep water! Awesome, yeah?! ~ Luke
May 27, 2013, Memorial Day, was the most fun I’ve ever had in my young life…and I’ve had MANY adventures already. I went to the beach for the first time!!!!!!!!
Mommy, Aunt Kwyn, Cousin Amy, Cousin Dave, Lita, Riley’s mommy Kellie, and Riley went too. We went to Matapeake State Park, which has an off leash dog park at the end of the beach. It’s on Kent Island by the Bay Bridge in Maryland, about 1.5 hours from my house.
We had so much fun playing in the Chesapeake Bay as well as running around the beach. At first, Lita, Riley and I had the beach all to ourselves. Later that afternoon, more dogs showed up and we had a blast playing with them.
Soooo many pics were taken, I decided to split them up into separate blogs. Enjoy! I know I did! 😀 ~ Luke
