Dexter almost swam! 

Yesterday was yet another beautiful Autumnal day, so at lunchtime (when we can escape from the shop for an hour), we headed down to the River Ure in Ripon hoping for a nice paddle.

We often come down to Pebble Beach for some time out. It’s so peaceful, you can literally sit on the pebble ‘beach’ and pretend you are anywhere!

I love how the boys just adore their time here too. They love to walk around having a good old sniff, followed by a paddle, another sniff, a shake, another paddle etc etc!

The Pet Shop Ripon. Archie and Dexter, The River Ure Wow! Dexter is almost swimming – exciting times!

And we’re in! I couldn’t believe how happy Dexter was to paddle around in the deeper water – he was almost swimming! Almost…..but not quite!

Archie on the other hand got wet up to his knees! I’ll have to work on him!!
