Annie Laurie, going on 15, started swimming in August to help with her heart disease and weakening back legs. Now she swims a quarter mile once a week — and it’s as if she’s turned back the clock!

Sheltie swimming

So glad to hear how well she is doing, Chris! :))

Sparky tells me to speed it up to get ashore for his morning walk!

Wow, ruff way to spend the last days of summer, Stephen! :)

Sparky is spending his winter checking out the beach in Baja California.

He is careful to not go in water over his knees. But all things considered I think he would prefer snow to sand.

Time to take him to the snowy mountains then, Nan and Steve! ;)

It was 103 degrees in Ojai, California this past week.

Connor’s mom thought it was a great time for a bath.

I think Connor would disagree.

They never think it is a good time, Jackie. ;)

The simple joys in life… attacking the water hose, chasing birds, and barking at airplanes.

How else would a Sheltie spend their summer? ;)

Lindy is a silly Sheltie, Rob & Dawn!
