    Default Going to be Interesting

    Soon we are heading up to the cabin.This time will be a first.We are going with my in-laws.The interesting part will be watching my sister in-law.She's a little squeemish about things.They have this new lab,her first,that is about 6 to 8 months old.She has already said that she never wants a bird in its mouth or even to swim in lakes or ponds.Her concern is germs,drowning,etc.She is worried that I will corrupt her lab.(He's a beautiful little guy).It's going to be interesting to see her try to keep her pup out of the water and cringe when he goes in anyway.Of course,all the bumpers and stuff that I'll be tossing for my own dog might just make it a little tough for little Fargo to not want to play too.I heard she bought him a life jacket just in case I might try to corrupt him.I hope to turn him into a addicted swimmer while she's not looking.

    Germs and drowning?? She knows she has a dog right? A Lab??


    Sounds like some instigating fun, the kind I love to pull on my own sister! She doesn't like dogs in the house, so I bring mine over when I go and let them sit everywhere. She doesn't like it because she thinks they're "stamping" the house...LOL

    Have fun and send pics when the pups in the water!

    What torture for the pup. That is like taking a kid to a playground, and not letting the kid play.

    Bob,

    Make sure you have a lifevest for your sister-in-law in case she goes in after Fargo (who I am sure won't be waiting around long enough to put his on) to save him from drowning and germs.

    Have fun!

    Great idea! I hope I get time to try that between swimming and pointing out all the ticks,spiders and deer poop along the way.

    Hopefully, there is a cow / horse pasture that you can walk through. My citified brother in law about lost his lunch the first time his lab gulped down a fresh horse turd.
