Monty Someday

I call this photo waterlogged.

This boy loves water more than a sea turtle. Honestly, you can't keep him out. We've learned if we are near water, we better have him on a leash. If not, he will b-line to the water and you won't be able to stop him.

It's funny to think when we first adopted him he was scared to even put his paws near water. It took Mr. B throwing him off a dock at the dog park reservoir to get him exposed to swimming. I can't say that experience actually helped, it may have shocked him more than anything. But he eventually gave it a try and when he did, he never looked back.

On our recent trip to Utah, we stopped at Rifle Gap State Park to set up camp. Fortunately, the campground over looked this beautiful lake - home to a few fishermen, boat captains and for one day, our dog.  Monty would have waded in the water all day if we let him. 

Not only did he come out soaking wet, but he collected over 30 cockleburs in his fur that needed to be cut out with our kitchen scissors. His paws now look like they received a hack-job from an inexperienced groomer.

Oh wait, I am inexperienced.
