I've been pretty bummed lately because my oldest dog, Hobbes, is starting to show his age. As I mentioned in a previous post, because of arthritis, Hobbes can no longer go with us on our daily walks. His world now consists of the house and the grassy patch at the top of the street, which is only a few hundred feet from our house. And as much as I would love to take him on our regular walks, he just can't do it anymore without limping.
I was a little worried we would have a problem getting Hobbes into the pool because Fit Dogs makes all the dogs use a ramp to get into and out of the pool, but we brought Calvin along for help, and just like we thought, he had no problems doing what he was supposed to. Hobbes quickly realized that was the only way in and followed Calvin's lead.

And finally, I think I can safely say this place was a success for the most important reason of all; Hobbes, who seemed to like it. How could he not? It combines two of his favorite things in the world, swimming and fetching the ball and it gives me comfort in the fact that I can do something proactive to help him with his arthritis and get him a little exercise at the same time.
Thanks Fit Dogs, we will definitely be back!
