    A canoe trip for Kes

    I've mentioned before that Kes is not our dog, just family who we watch every so often, http://www.dogwalkbloggs.com/showthr...s-of-pictures).

    He is getting on now and is not steady on his feet. A long walk is a lap or two of the garden but a trip in the landrover and the canoe is still a pleasure. First in the Landy, always a sign of an impending adventure, especially when you've been dresses on your lifejacket.



    The plan was for just a short paddle at Castle Semple loch. The weather was warm with a bit of wind but nothing too strong. With minimal hassle unloading we were soon on the water.



    Sam and Kes got comfy to take in the sights and sounds of the loch.





    Sam is usually a bit more animated in the canoe but tonight was very chilled.





    Of course there is only so much a dog can do in the canoe. It is all about the mental stimulation and seeing what is going on, watching the world go bye. All the same things that appeal to me





    Not that I get to relax as much as the dogs. If I rest to long I get the "Oy, do some paddling"' look.



    As always, all to soon, it was time to head back to the car. Another enjoyable trip out on the water just chilling with the dogs.

    Way to go Kes, there's life in the old dog yet .....& you do look dapper in your designer lifejacket
    Properly trained, a man can become a dog's best friend.

    Every time I've taken Kes out in the canoe his owner thinks it will be his last trip. I'm still not sure that is true. It's an ideal outing for an old dog.

    how old is kes now?
    the two do look very comfortable there. of course they can't run around that much in the canoe but a day's paddling still seems to make them tired, somehow. i guess it must be because they need to keep watching the world go by instead of sleep all day.

    Kes is 17 now I think. He has had a good innings but is getting very weak now. Still up for a paddle though.
