Last Sunday we took Digby to his 3rd Dogtoberfest at Islander Park in Riverside. It is sponsored by Golden Retriever Club of Greater Los Angeles- Rescue. It's a Golden Retriever play date of grand proportions...the dogs swim, frolic and generally have a wonderful time. We brought Tia with us and our friends Ernie, Sue and Ed Ernst.

My lovable lunk-head Digby is a swimming fool....he jumps in the water on arrival and that's where he stays. He gets out for short trips to the grass (he's a good boy, he doesn't pee in the pool). This year we got him a handy dandy red doggie flotation device so he wouldn't get tuckered out too soon.

Digby loves to swim!

Swimming with friends

Doggie rest area.

Taking a short break before jumping back in.

I caught me a funny looking duck!

Hey Buddy, can you toss me one of those tennis balls?

Tia's glad she's not in the pool, that's no place for Chihuahua's

Time to go home...we finally got him out of the pool.

Dogtoberfest is a fundraiser for the Golden Retriever Rescue organization and the attendees are all rescue dogs. To learn more about adopting a homeless Golden Retriever visit their website HERE.

I'll be back tomorrow with my Thought for the Day!
