My Dad and I
This past weekend was spent at the cottage. If you have been following my blog, you will certainly recognize that Koda isn't too far away from Neil (here's the proof). Neil recently picked up this kayak which is a wider design for fishing. It didn't take Koda long to find just the right spot so that she isn't left behind. Neil and I spent part of the afternoon kayaking together on Bobs Lake. Several people did a second look since I'm sure they are not used to seeing a dog in a kayak. In the second pic, Neil was busy installing the new starter for the boat and Koda heard the motor start and jumped in real quick just in case there was a ride involved but also not to be left behind. She certainly is "Daddy's girl". Koda has been with us for almost a year now. We stumbled across her shortly after our other golden "Ben" passed away at the end of last summer. We have come to realize that Koda has huge "separation" issues especially around Neil. Our cottage neighbours have come to recognize the commotion Koda makes if Neil heads out in the boat without her. She also has been known to swim after him! Our newest neighbours, Mike and Margo from Burlington, Ontario can get Koda to turn around and come back by blowing a whistle (Mike was in the Canadian Navy). Thank goodness for great neighbours!!
