Phoebe's Big Adventure

Last weekend, while I was caught up in a frenzy of spring cleaning, my husband took Phoebe to the lake for a big adventure. They hiked through the woods, paddled around in the canoe, waded in the water and caught some fish. Phoebe got to sniff each fish her daddy caught and watched with great interest as he released them back into the water. Phoebe is great in the canoe. She doesn't fidget too much. She likes to sit and look around, taking in the scenery. She just loves being outdoors.

Phoebe will be 13 in April, but she has as much energy as a dog half her age. After several hours of hiking and boating, she came home all perky as if to ask, "What's next?" She keeps us on our toes, this one!

  2. She is adorable, and you are so blessed to have her love and devotion still, at her 'good age' !! My lab is just turning 11, but he has slowed down quite a bit, and it makes me sad sometimes. Enjoy every minute you can with Phoebe !

    1. Thanks for your sweet comment! The photos of Phoebe were taken by my husband with his Nikon D40 camera. All other photos on my site were taken by me with my Nikon CoolPix 5900.

  5. Phoebe is adorable. Glad she is in such good shape. My 14 year old dog can't see or hear very well. Makes me sad.
    What a beautiful lake!

  7. Aww....she is so adorable. She reminds me of my big girl Laci. I'm glad she had a great day and that she is so healthy. Whatever you are doing, you are doing right.

  10. That face!!! Ohmy, that last photo almost brought me to tears. What a love. And, what a big, fun doggy day that was for Phoebe!! We do the same thing- let Ella sniff everything. I think it's respectful as they are always so inquisitive and it makes them feel like they are a part of everything that is going on. Hugs to Phoebe!!
