We took the dog to the river to swim because the ice had finally melted. The water level was low because the temperatures were still so cold and snow melt had happened. Cold water is fine with the dog. There were lots of geese, a few ducks and, sadly, a dead pelican with a broken neck, right below a huge tree with large branches, so we came to the conclusion that was how it broke its’ neck. There was also a huuuuuuge beaver. Chessie wanted to swim next to him. We convinced her the beaver was NOT interested.
