This peaceful kayak ride only turned into an adventure when I paddled to the middle of the lake and the schnauzer decided to jump in the water.
She did not have a life jacket and she did not have any real swimming skills. I jumped in after her, then swan to the closest shore with her on my shoulder and the kayak in tow…quite the adventure!

life jacket and no real swimming skills,… an adventure, Indeed!
This isn’t fun until afterwards…
Yes…Once I knew the dog and I would be ok….it became funny!
You really should put a life jacket on that little guy.
Yes Pam…I learned a lesson!!
Sorry, Tree. I didn’t mean to nag. Although that is in my nature.
Pam, I did not take it as nagging!!
And I really did learn a lesson. I really didn’t think she would jump (1st mistake!) and I assumed she could swim….still not totally sure about the second one but I have no intention of finding out….life jacket from now on!!
Those darn little dogs! Always causing some sort of ruckus. We have two yorkie mixes and I can see our Daisy doing this! Glad you are all safe and sound!
Glad it all worked out! Silly dog!
Me too! And yes she is!

Sounds like an unexpected adventure! I hope the pup said thank you at the end of it all. 🙂
LOL…..she hugged me very tight…of course that could have been out of fear of falling back in the water!!
Either way it sounds like she showed her appreciation. 🙂
I think she did!!
Note to self – dog plus harness or life jacket makes life easier for you!! Voice of experience speaking here…
A lesson I have now learned!!! Nice to know I am not the only irresponsible dog parent out there!
