It has been more than a month since Doodle and I were in the pool. It just got too cold for us by the end of September.

We didn’t meet our Doodle-safe-in-the-water goal, but we did make good progress and should be able to get off to a good start when the swimming season starts up again in late spring.

The Little Swimmer Vest, although cumbersome, did help Doodle get stronger quickly. I’ll be interested to see how quickly he’ll be able to shed the foam pads next summer.
