we are ramping it up at the lake

We built Jo's waterdog ramp, or a close relative of her ramp, and put it in the lake where our doc used to go. We haven't had the money and wherewithal to get a new dock and I thought it would be more fun for the dogs, even Stella, if there was a better way in and out of the water for them... that Stella might be interested in swimming if she could swim from one place to another... we have to float out with her on an inner tube and she just jumps off and swims to shore. And it quickly became clear last week that Razz loves JUMPING in... so I thank Jo for the idea and the specs and I hope it holds up for the summer... I should have found heavier duty zipties, but we can add them later.
I think we need to add a little table or step lower off the end for Joey to get back on... Stella has yet to try it. Razz IS OBSESSED!!!! HE LOVES JUMPING IN AND RETRIEVING THE WATER TOYS... there was a woman swimming lake laps with an orange floatie so the boats would see her and Razz thought it was one of his toys and swam out to the middle of the lake to get it, nosed it, realized it wasn't one of his toys and swam back... the woman was probably terrified, I would have been... ahem, we need to practice recalls in the water...

Yay! I've been waiting for the ramp story! Maybe tomorrow morning I'll go to Home Depot to see if there is PVC pipe the same diameter as the table legs.

That looks great! I'm glad it is working out so well for you. Razz looks very happy. :-)
