The heat is oppressive and so thankful we are walking distance to the bay.
As you know, Max is a digger. The float that he retrieved was buried in the woods. He found it, hidden treasure left by Rip.
We bought two of them for Rip, we would throw them out and he would look at us thinking, so when are you going out to get them!
Gabe started Max off slowly in the water. Max doesn't like to be rushed. The harder you push him to do something he won't even think of doing it.
When we got to the bay we let him go in. He avoids the boat ramp which is extremely slippery. He slipped once and ended up in the water before he wanted to go in and now avoids it at all cost.
Started with sticks and would throw them in close to the shore and now he doesn't have a problem swimming out to get the float.
