Boaz also liked to pull me and my chair when we walk the path around Lake Bella Vista. He especially enjoys me letting him off is leash at the mid-way part where we are by Little Sugar Creek. He loves to walk and swim around in that area. He easily comes back to me so I can attach his leash again.
The leash I’m thinking about getting for him is this one: YOGADOG – Heavy Duty Dog Harness, Soft Padded with Special Extended Integrated Short Leash Design, Reflective Stitching, For Medium and Large Dogs (XXL)
I’m going to do a product review of this soon and let you know how it’s working for Boaz and myself. My order should be here in a few days.
Fun on Lake Avalon
Mel and I having been checking out kayaks to purchase and use in the 7 lakes here in Bella Vista. We have tentatively selected a very stable one for me from a local kayak vendor. But this weekend, we both got to try out several different kayaks when a big kayak company brought many down to Lake Avalon for people to test “drive”. We both got to try 4 each and I loved several of the wider more stable ones. Bo got to start out on the first one I tried, then decided he wanted to swim rather than ride. Luckily, since it was my first time in a kayak, he didn’t tip me over. The kayak was very stable and big enough to hold him and me. Bo then just swam around following me in the water. We both had a great time and had no troubles getting in or out. When we do purchase our own kayaks, which I hope is soon, all of us will wear life vests, icluding Bo. I’ve already purchased his life vest and I’m going to write a review of it. This is the one I’m ordering which will be here in a few days.

I’ll be writing a product review of the vest also once we’ve used it some.
I can’t wait until we have our own kayaks and can take them out whenever we want. Bella Vista has 7 great lakes for us to float. We also have a local “paddle club” that Mel and I can join and do their floats with them. I’m pretty sure we will just be doing mostly lake floating, because, at this point, I’m not capable of walking and help to portage a kayak around. My legs are definitely becoming stronger and I’m walking more steps each day, but my wheelchair is still necessary for most of the time. I’m hoping to be writing about my new kayak soon with pictures and praising all the cool features. We will be looking at more kayaks in outfitters tomorrow and maybe we will actually bite the bullet and purchase one or even two for us to use.
Thanks for looking at my site and coming to this page. I would love for you to leave any questions or comments below.
