Tonight’s post is about another adventure dog that we know. Smokey is a 3 year old black German Spitz who has always loved swimming from a young age. He is one mega cool guy as you can see from his pictures, who loves nothing more than doing a spot of Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP), with his owner Maria.
When Smokey was a puppy Maria encouraged him to swim and then progressively made him swim further,then he graduated into sea swimming which was a bit tougher. Maria has many outdoor hobbies and wanted to include Smokey. So with the aid of his doggy life jacket he began balancing on the large paddle board, keeping in the shallows at first then once he got his balance Maria ventured further and further out.
Smokey has a few favourite spots such as Pars Sands in Cornwall (a link to this can be found in our previous post Here ) as well as Mount Batten near us here in Plymouth.
What a brilliant thing to do, include your best mate in your favourite hobbies? 🙂 Well done Maria and Smokey keep the lovely photos of your adventures coming I think he deserves his own hashtag #adventuresmokey 🙂
They would also like me to mention their favourite charity Last Chance Hotel based in Cornwall who regime dogs that normal dog homes wouldn’t rehome. I’ve just had a look….not a good idea for someone with three dogs already. Please help fund them here: GoFundMe Last Chance Hotel
