Hubby has been sooooo busy with everything I put on his “honey-do” list (including our kitchen renovation this summer) that poor Stirling has been without a boat in the pool for over a year now! Stirling does NOT like to get in the water (he’s fallen in accidentally a couple times) but being a herder, it drives him crazy when his “herd” is where he can’t get to us, so when we swim, he circles the pool…and barks…and circles…and barks!
We found out a few years ago that he enjoyed being in a boat in the pool with us when the kids had a big blowup boat. Which of course popped after not too long. So Andrew made him a plywood/fiberglass boat that lasted a couple of years; but it died last summer.
So, although swimming season is just about over here, Stirling was quite happy to have a boat again!
As soon as we put it in the water, he jumped right in, I didn’t really have time to even get a picture of it!
Happy Stirling now!
