Summer goodness

Gilly hasn’t been in a canoe since he was a pup. We’ve kayaked a fair bit, and he does well sitting between my knees in a cockpit, but I wasn’t sure how he’d handle the openness of a canoe after all this time.

Silly of me.

One two-minute demonstration of what I wanted him to do and the pooch was a pro. He even posed happily for pictures, got in and out of the boat with minimal rocking to cool off when we came to appropriate rocks along the way, and generally took the whole experience as his obvious due.

Another cherished day with Gilgamesh.

He’s a gift.
