This photo captures what I miss most about living in Arizona. Our swimming pool was the greatest way to exercise our guy Rusty! 1-2 hrs a day of swimming did wonders for his house manners which is sometimes difficult for young Labrador Retrievers (he was approx. 1.5 yrs old when I took this photo).
When we started our search for adopting a dog, we knew that we had to get a dog that loved to swim. The moment we got him home and into the backyard, he made went directly into the swimming pool! From that moment on, we couldn’t let him outside without a leash if we didn’t want him in the unfenced pool.
These were great times!
