The Dog Days of Summer

My beloved lab Maddie (aka Mads, Boo Boo Kitty, Madder, Madeleine Rose (when in trouble) and other assorted names) tore her ACL. Which...means no running or jumping all summer long while she heals. The only approved activity is swimming or what I like to affectionately call Aquatic Therapy. 

When you capitalize something it just sounds better doesn't it?

Today was our first day of Aquatic Therapy at the local swimming hole. She did well. Well, until she spotted a bird and I had to hold her back. It's going to be a long summer I suspect. Sigh.

Photo notes: It was taken using Hipstamatic with the Ina's 1969 filter.  Mad is the odd looking eel-like creature in the back.
