Do you love your dog? I love mine too!

This is my dog Buck. If his eyes look a bit freaky it’s because I tried to fix them in photo shop and did a terrible job. They were all weirded out before I worked on them. Not much better now!

I want to share something with you I found very informative and perhaps, life-saving. I KNOW IT WILL SOUND TOO STRANGE, but one of my best girlfriends has worked at a vet clinic for over 10 years, and this is what she told me:

“Guess what the number cause of a dog’s death is? Drowning. So many people think that just because dogs swim good that they can just keep on going. It’s just not true.”

“Loving pet owners go out on the lakes and think their dog is good to go without a life vest. I see more drowning deaths that those hit by cars and other accidents all together. Particularly on a lake where boats go fast. By the time you get back to where the dog fell off or was swimming – he may not be there! ”

I can see how this could happen. I was kayaking a few days ago and I was close in to the shore line.
There was a group of people laughing and a bunch of boys sitting out of a long huge pipe. There was also
a little dog swimming around in circles.

The woman was calling the dog, but it looked confused to me. It just kept going around. Finally I yelled and said I think the dog is in trouble. Everybody was freaked by then, so I told one of the boys to grab the dog and then kayaked over and put him in my boat.

Poor little thing was scared to death. It was exhausted (12 years old), and just got tired and scared. I know that dog could have drown!

So please, they aren’t expensive, invest in the life of your dog by investing a little bit of cash – much less in the way of cost than a burial or cremation!
