it's not really campin' if there aren't swimmies involved!!

okie recap my totally awesome sauce campin' trip up to this point, me and asa and mama and daddy had already made it through a mega gusty thunderstorm and been on a grrreat hike through the woods and along lake hartwell.  but it's just not campin' for reals unless you get your paws wet, so of course we headed down to the lake for some epic water funsies!!

even my big sis asa, who is not a really big fan of the waters, decided to go in the lake for a dip!  she even went for a mini swimmie!  watch 'n see!

after me 'n asa got super pooped from splashin' around in the lake, we went back to camp and spread out in the sunshineys so we could dry off and work on our tans before supper.

we even had a little inchworm friend come 'n join us!  neato! 

too bad i couldn't bring him home with me.  my mama said N-O.  we'll see you next time, though, mr. inchworm!

You are both fantastic swimmers! I wish we could join you, especially today when it's so hot! Mr. Inchworm was awfully cute, and he probably is happier staying out there in the woods!

What a super amazing time you all had, Booker! And I'm just in awe of you and Asa swimming around in that water and not being worried abouts melting. If I went, I'd just have to wave at you from the bank.

Are you gonna get to go camping again anytime soon?

Wiggles & Wags,

PeeS. My momma had a good giggle abouts you telling the Cap'n about his TPS cover being missing. Heehee!

Kristin G. said...

Great swimming footage Booker! I sure did like to see Asa's waggy tail! All that wagging must have worn her out too! I bet that inch worm will be waiting for your next visit. Thanks for sharing your fun times with us!!

Great exercise and FUN in that water, Booker. We could tell in the first video that Asa really wanted to join you in the water. Next time she will be racing you out for your toy.

We are most impressed with your jumping into the water form, Booker. Have you thought about doing that doggie 'long jump into the water from a standing start on the dock' sport? They give prizes and everything. We are also most impressed with Miss Asa's bravery, wading into that water. Abby would NEVER do that. We're sure your exmple gave her the courage to try it.

Oh, my goodness...what fun videos of you swimming, Booker Man, that almost made me want to jump in there with had so much fun! Your sis got a bit brave too, but me thinks she was concerned for our safety ... what a great time you had and the inchworm is adorable...I would have wanted him too. Glad you loved your trip to the lake.
Sounds like you're off to a wonderful summer,
Lots of love from
