At the beach earlier I am holding on to Chai's leash and she spots a black lab to our right. I pull her in close and keep an eye on them. A few people in their group then swim off to a boat just off shore. The man on the beach then puts a life jacket on the dog and they head out.
What you can't tell from these pictures is the back of that boat is going a good 5 feet up and down with the waves. As the dog got closer he decided "F that!" and turned around to head back to shore. With some coaxing and good timing the owners got him on board.
I wanted to get Chai further into the lake so I had put my phone down, but I'm really bummed I didn't get a picture of the next part. There was another dog already on the boat that had been hanging out all day. The guy that swam out with the black lab swam back to shore with this little white guy (think Bichon Frise) in the smallest little inflatable boat so he could have a potty break. It was hysterical!
