Emma's first kayaking experience!

Look! Mom got a new kayak and she took me out with her to see how I would like it.

I have my very own PFD (personal floatation device), too! Mom hooked a leash to my PFD and attached it to herself so I couldn't get lost if I jumped overboard.

I was really interested in everything! I sat in Mom's lap, but moved from side to side to see everything there was to see. I wanted to catch the birds that were out on the water. We saw ducks, gulls, and cormorants on the water and an osprey, kingfisher, and shorebirds.

Mom told me to sit still and I did, but when I saw the package of Doritos on the water, I just about made it overboard. I got dribbled on from the water dripping off the paddles, but otherwise I stayed dry. What a fun way to spend an evening!

Looks like Emma had a blast! Great fun for a cute little doxie.

Emma did, indeed, have a blast. We're going to try to take her out again this weekend for a short paddle.
