It’s been a while….

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.

  1. Swimming is awesome! That is cool you can swim in February, we have snow since we are in Colorado. I am sad for you that your sidewalks get to hot to keep up on your walks, but maybe that means more swimming!! Keep up the good work and catching those rabbits!!!
