FitDog Friday~Open Water With See Beautiful~Glory Girl

FINALLY! The weather has broke, the freezing cold and snow has disappeared and the pond opened up! The SS gang was happy to see the open water when we took our walk to the pond last weekend. They all jumped in and started swimming around like they never saw water before. Glory would jump in swim to other side, get out and jump in again. She was having so much fun. They didn’t need anything to entertain them or to get them to swim but I did throw a stick a time or two to give them some retrieves. Swimming is a really great exercise to keep dogs fit. It is especially great on dogs with arthritis or recovering from a surgery as they don’t have the constant pounding on hard ground as they do when they walk/run or jump on land.

Here are the pictures from our day at the pond.

My eyes, my eyes she splashed water in my eyes.

My American Girl~Glory Girl
I am truly blessed to See Beautiful not only This Moment but every moment of the day when I look at My American Girl, Glory Girl. She brings so much beauty to my life. She is full of life and doesn’t have a care in the world. She knows how to wiggle her butt to make me smile when I am sad. She knows how to make me laugh when I am down. She is the sweetest girl that gets sweeter each day. I am blessed to have a good friend that loves to do photography and knows how to do more advance edits to photos then I could ever imagine. In the next blog posts if you see some really stunning photos chances are Nichole from Alred Photography edited them. Her work as been featured in a Marine Magazine down in Alabama. Thank you Nichole for adding beauty to my photos.

    My Human has been suffering from a migraine this week and struggled to make a business appointment midweek, so I’m really behind in reading. It’s difficult nursin’ a human.
