Today, my brother and I went snorkelling and took Hunter along. Cassie don't like the water, so she had to stay home:rolleyes:

Well it was a great day...but....Hunter wouldn't allow me to go out very far. Each time I would go out, he would drop his stick and circle me closer and closer until I would have to hold on to him, and as soon as he would feel me grab him, he would start swimming in with me:laughing:

We were all swimming for about 2 hours!!! It was great:crazy:

Awwww...he worries about Mom! I think that's sweet the way he 'saves' you and brings you back in to shore! :lovestruck: What a good boy, Hunter!

He looks like once you're safe on land he has a ball in the water! :dog: I'll bet he sleeps well tonight! :thumbs up :D

He looks like a little fish in the water :cloud9: the water seems very clear , I love it when you can see the bottom.

It is ocean water, here you can always see bottom in the ocean, well until it gets too deep.

It was very Very cold though. With the wet suit on, it was okay, but it took a while to get the water in....little by little for me:o
I didn't have any neoprene boots, and my feet got really really cold.

Yeah, Hazel and Rainbow, he had been sleeping a lot since we got home.

Drinking a lot too, because of the salt water. :rolleyes:

Cassie did :rolleyes: hey ! She's a beagle ! They multitask :laughing:

Does she prefer to stay on land?

Hunter's_owner
August 11th, 2007, 06:40 PM
Yeah she did. She don't have a wet suit either, so she kinda didn't have a choice....The ocean water is way too cold here to swim in it without a wet suit.

My toes actually went numb:eek:

Yeah I like it too. I didn't get to snorkel too much because of Hunter:rolleyes: :D
And I found the water really cold...it took me a while to let it get into the suit to warm up. I have to get some boots, so my feel won't get cold next time.

The water temp is colder than normal for this time of year due to all the ice bergs we had in the bay this year.

We say some fish, had a small crab, and seen lots of jelly fish.
Other than that is was all about Hunter for me.:cloud9:

My brother went on out and got some mussels.

Thanks Wayne. :)
It really is wonderful to live on the beach.

It is something that I never did take for granted. Even as a kid, one of my favourite things to do would be to walk along the beach, with the waves rolling in...such a peaceful feeling:cloud9:

wow what great pics and Hunter sure loves the water!
I wish I had a dog that liked the water but sadly not one of them do :sad:

Guess I'll just have to enjoy your pics instead :)

TMac it is great to know that. Like I said he never showed the instinct before, so when he kept doing that the other day I got sooo happy:D :laughing:

Thanks CrestedCrazy. Yeah Hunter really does love the water. I will try to post more water pics for you if I can for you to enjoy;)

great pics! I'm so jealous! I wish I had a dog who liked water also, so we could do fun stuff like that! but alas... Tucker is not a water dog.

you'll definitely have to post more for those of us who don't have water dogs!
