Over to Frank for details of this week’s challenge:
Your challenge is to use the theme of Play in any way that you see fit!
I’m using Frank’s picture of Darwin here as I think it’s smashing and I love seeing dogs enjoying themselves in the water!
Maggie is no exception, and once you get her in the water, it’s a bit of game to get her out again.
As a pup, she loved to explore and we encouraged it, making sure she was safe all the while she was having fun. In the woods she would climb woodpiles and on the beach at Hamworthy she had her own obstacle course with the groynes going out to sea, happily charging along them and jumping off the end or flying over them like hurdles.
She did a flip over one and I was panicking as I rushed up to it, fully expecting her to have broken her back when she landed on the other side. She was actually swimming around in her own little pool, and I swear she was laughing!
There’s nothing more affectionate than a wet dog!
