Today I went swimming again! This time mom put me on the lift, lowered me in and I took off like a fish. I’ve been swimming now for almost 10 months and every time I go, I get stronger. Even Jeffrey Flocker my therapist says I’m doing wonderfully! I swam 4 laps in his pool before he even got there to help. All in all, I swam for a total of 25 min. with about 5 min. in rest periods. It’s so much fun, I chase a rabbit on a stick and if it hits the water with a splash, I lunge for it. Love chasing those rabbits!
My sister Gretchen is doing better. She limps once in a while, but the vet doctor says she just strains herself. She’s tall and lean and loves to run circles around me in the yard. Sometimes, she slips on the grass a little because she gets going too fast.
Baby Anka weighs about 45 pounds now and is only 6 months old. She is still in training, but does well on her leash. Mom puts her on a coupler with Gretchen and walks them together. Ha! Ha! I get my own leash and private walks with mom.
So life here in Arizona is pretty much the same except that it’s getting warm here now. I know the walks will be fewer as the sidewalks get too hot and so does the weather. Guess I’ll have to try and run circles around my sisters this summer.
