Today we took Daffy to Hosmer Lake in the Cascades for her first ride on a stand up paddle board. This was a big ask for our little girl from Kansas. We don't know if she has ever been near a body of water bigger than a bathtub. She fell in a couple of times but her tail kept wagging through it all.
|Treats are always a good way to start a new adventure.|
|The first float. So far so good.|
|The life vest with a handle came in handy.|
|Beautiful setting with Mt. Bachelor in the background.|
|After Daffy took a dunk.|
|This is a perfect board riding position. Didn't last long.|
|Wait! Come back!|
Part of the 'falling in' is that Daffy likes us to stay together. If she was on Dana's board she wanted to go to Jim's board... jumping in the water.... and visa versa... Reminds us of a certain kitty and wanting in and out from the deck.
|A day out on the water makes you dog tired!|
All in all she did great for her first time in the water.
