Summer has come & gone & the crisp fall days are apon us. Summer was so great this year. We started it with the best vacation ever. The rest was just filled with days of hanging out at home, cookouts and swimming.
It was a very hot summer here so many nights after work we would take the short ride up the road to Comet Pond.
Pretty isn't it? Tanner has always loved the water but was always to nervous to go deep enough to learn to swim.
That changed this year though. After a lot of gentle coaxing bringing him a little deeper each try...he finally decided he did know how to swim and that he loved it. There was nothing this dog loved more this summer than fetching sticks we threw into the lake for him.
I always knew he was a true water dog...we just needed to convince him.
Love this picture of him enjoying the view...
When we weren't swimming Tanner was a great gardening companion. He loves hanging out on the rocks in the front rock garden. And I love having him to keep me company while I work pulling weeds etc.
