Tanner would spend his days there, waterlogged and wrinkled, if I let him. I probably should have named him Fetch.
One reader asked if Xena swims. Here is a photo of her and Tanner sharing a float. While Xena's swimming is much like the old lady who doesn't want to be splashed, she does enjoy the occasional dip. Particularly if Tanner isn't around splashing like a little child.
Last year's favorite toy, "Yellow", died a long, slow death by loss of its furry skin. No matter, for Tanner is happy to fetch most anything that floats and can be retrieved to the pool deck for another toss.
