There is a place in town I heard you can let dogs swim that is fenced off on land and safe. It was a beautiful day (and I was off) so I took a chance and tried to find it.
Well, it was a terrible experience and I have no one to blame but myself. The water was not fenced, and leads to a river. Rocky took off after a duck and swam after it (even after it flew off and landed farther away) and showed no sign of coming back. He was out of sight for 5 minutes and I nearly died, had a complete melt down. Thank god he came back, finally giving up on the duck and was leashed up real quick. Yes - we will be going back to square one for recall and I will not repeat a similiar scenario.
Ryley was a complete star, he is a great boy, he went off after Rocky but came right back to me when I called him.
Anyhoo, here are some photos:

This is the beginning, Rocky in front going for the duck - the duck who he followed down the river
The boys swimming - Ryley's mouth is open and he is drinking LOL

And now Rock is leashed and Ryls is having fun
Aww, love this photo!
The path was overrun with Candian Geese, and look at the babies!
Great pictures. they look like they had a great time. I'm glad Rocky came back. I bet your heart was beating a mile a minnute.
Sorry it didn't work out exactly as planned, but they obviously had a great time.
Great pics of the browns! Swat Rocky on the nose for me, and tell him not to frighten you again!
