Summer Vacation

Well Ggoody and I returned from our vacation to Lake LBJ on Friday, July 30. (Yes, that was a long time ago!) We were gone for about six days and had a blast! I still miss the lake and I am sure Ggoody does too being a true water dog an all.

Just to recap, we arrived to our lake house Sunday, July 25, in the afternoon. We mainly lounged and unpacked while Ggoody took it upon herself to smell every last inch of the house to make sure everything was ok.

On Monday my family and I rented a ski boat, but Ggoody had to stay behind for safety reasons (ie: high speed of the boat for tubing, choppy water, etc.)

Tuesday we rented a pontoon boat that Ggoody was allowed to go on. She loved it, except when she fell into the water by accident, but all was well after she got back onto the boat. After that ordeal she fell asleep on the bench inside the boat.

On Wednesday we were supposed to have a ski boat however the boat we had, had issues so instead we took out another pontoon boat. Ggoody tagged along again. She loved the wind in her face! When we got back, I went fishing that evening and caught a small bluegill! Ggoody had no idea what to do with the fish. She just smelled it and looked at it funny, then watched it swim away when I released it. I didn't have my camera with me so no pictures of the fish.

Thursday was another ski boat day so Ggoody spent the day with my grandma and grandpa liked she did on Monday. She even got a rawhide bone because she was being so good!

Then Friday came and we had to leave. Ggoody got one last round of fetch in before we had to head out. Overall it was a great trip. I think Ggoody proved herself worthy of accompaning our family on more trips. Sadly vacation is over and we are back to reality...

Ggoody is all packed and ready for vacation!

One pooped pup!

Ggoody was fascinated by the waves in the lake.

Quick Update

Our lake trip is going well so far. I just wanted to update on what has been happening so far. We arrived Sunday at Lake LBJ and Ggoody settled in quickly. On Monday my family and I rented a ski boat, but Ggoody had to stay home. On Tuesday however, we rented a pontoon boat and Ggoody got to tag along. She loved it! After about an hour we stopped to swim and Ggoody slipped into the water. She loves to swim, but the middle of the lake is hard for a dog to swim without tiring. My mom and I hoisted her up on our tube so she could rest and get back into the boat. After her 5 minute dip in the water, Ggoody was tired. And she slept for the rest of the boat trip. That's all for now, more to follow later.

Long Overdue Summer Update

It has been way to long since I have posted last. The end of school, graduation, work, and summer have consumed much of my time, but nonetheless I have an update on Llarson and his siblings. Llarson is currently still in training. I was really hoping he would have graduated either in June or July because I head off to college in August, but I guess he is progressing at his own rate. Congrats to Llinnane and Llane! His sister Llinnane graduated on June 25 and his sister Llane is set to graduate in July. Llangley, another sister, has been transferred to the Department of Defense Military Working Dog Program (DoD MWD). The rest of the L litter is still in training with the National Explosive Detection Canine Team Program (NEDCTP).

In further news I will be heading to the lake in a few days and Ggoody gets to tag along. I will try and take some pictures of Ggoody's first vacation with us. I hope everyone is having a great summer.

Until next time,

Addie & Ggoody
