Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: First time kayaking   Fri Jul 25, 2014 1:31 am

This past month Ripley has decided that going in vehicles for rides is pretty cool after all & on Monday morning, as she watched my OH put his kayak in the back of the truck, she decided she wanted to come along.  So, we switched his mahogany for the tandem & I tagged along in case she decided she didn't like the upcoming adventure.  It was her first time coming to the river (Rideau) as well.  The most water she'd seen before this was our little fish pond, her little splash pool & my mother's big inground pool...

Well she loved it!  We just let her follow us down to the river & let her sniff around & decide herself if she wanted in the kayak.

Here are a few pics.  Smile









There was so much for her to see, she enjoyed drinking & touching the water, grabbing grass, flowers, turtles, fish & of course all the loons, ducks & geese.  At one point the prey drive kicked in & well, she didn't realize that puppies cannot run on water like ducks can!  My husband & I were able to catch her before she went overboard (only the front end did) & it scared the little pup a wee bit.  And what does she do when she gets startled?  Well she needs a cuddle from her Dadday of course!  Wink


Looking back at the ducks








Of course being her first time & being a pup, this is exciting & a novelty, so in time she'll learn to not go all over the kayak to get better views.  But all in all, she did great for her first outing! She was pretty tuckered out for a few hours which made the cat a very happy camper! Wink

Lynne,
Wow, what a great time you all had. She is so pretty, can't believe how light her coat is, compared to your avatar. Funny how their looks change as they grow. I miss our kayak, never had it with our girl, but it would have been so much fun. If Ripley is anything like our Miya, she will always wander around, even in the small confines of a kayak, because they are so nosy, have to see everything. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks,
Yeah I love how the coat changes too. I was forewarned about this & thought, yeah right it can't change that much! Well holy cow, it does & she's only 4 months old! Lol!

Her mask went away & then when it came back it looked like a classic pin striping on cars, you'd swear someone was colouring a perfect black line around her eyes, bit by bit daily. She then looked like someone had given her a pair of gag binoculars leaving a ring around the eyes. Now the grey is filling back in & the coat hair has a beige tone to it with grey at the tip of the hair shaft.
