The lifejacket has arrived!

My lifejacket arrived yesterday and I've been wearing it around the house a little. This is a picture of when Mommy first put it on me. I wasn't too sure about it at first but it's really not that bad. Daddy likes it because it has handles and he can lift me up.
I'm really starting to like my kayak. Mommy and Daddy say "kayak" and I jump right in because they give me lots of treats when I'm in there! Last night I found an ice cube on the ground (I LOVE ice cubes thanks to Grammy Pam) and I jumped right into my kayak so I could eat it in there.
Daddy says that our first adventure out will probably be at Sunshine Cove where we will paddle a very short distance to a little island where I can run around and explore. I'm almost ready for lots of great adventures in my little kayak!

The start of my kayaking adventure!

Mommy and Daddy have been trying to think of a way to take me kayaking and camping with them this summer. They searched all around town to find the perfect boat just for me. They had a hard time because the kayaks were too big and they worried that my paws would puncture an inflatable boat. Mommy even searched the internet for mini-kayaks, doggy boats and children's kayaks. 
One day they were driving home and saw a kayak sitting outside of the new sporting-goods consignment store. Mommy and Daddy went to look at the kayak and found that there was a second one for 50% off. It was light, short and PERFECT for me! 

 Mommy and Daddy bought it and brought it home for me. They brought it up to the living room so I could get used to it. They put my blankie in there and fed me dinner in it. I wasn't too sure about it at first but every time I'd go in there they'd give me treats. It took me awhile to get used to it but now I really like it. Mommy and Daddy say that we're going to start out slowly and put it in the water just for a little bit. I don't really like the ocean but Mommy and Daddy are so excited to go camping with me that I think it'll be ok.
I'm pretty excited to join Mommy and Daddy on their summer adventures and will definitely be blogging about them for you!
