 Poor ole' Joe's hips have been causing him a lot of pain lately. He just wasn't wanting to go for his evening walk this evening. Every night for the past little bit he has had to have pain pills to cope with his hips. I decided if Joe didn't get to swim ever again he would have his chance tonight. I took him to Mallard Lake at Tanglewood Park and turned him loose. He acted like a puppy! When I got him home he went straight to his bed. In no time at all he was asleep and snoring away. 
Joe is on the floating dock and dry. It didn't take him long to dive in the water.
