We were no more than 2 feet from shore, when he fell in. 5 minutes - he couldn't even last 5 minutes before he was sopping wet! My favorite part of the day came when the onlookers from the shore clapped when Sean was able to haul the dog back into the kayak without tipping over! His "accident" (I'm not entirely sure he didn't try to jump out) sure put a damper on the evening as he continually tried to stand up so he could shake himself off in the kayak. I haven't read the owner's manual yet, but I'm sure wiggling around, shaking back & forth and circling around & around before you sit down is not recommended in a long, skinny and somewhat unstable kayak! And to make matters worse, my new kayak was not in proper working order!

Thanks so much for your encouraging comment on my blog

I love your work. I just had to comment on your dog though... too cute, he does look a little embarassed though.

You're welcome Kimberly. I am excited to follow your blog to see what other creations you have.

My husband is convinced that the dog does not make faces, but I think this is proof!
