How truly remarkable Haley is! Treasure every moment and do not take any of them for granted. I wish there was somewhere I could take my old girl swimming that did not require a climb to get in or out of the water.
Thanks for the wonderful comments. I think the biggest thing has been swimming her as often as possible. I've probably averaged about 5x per week for the last couple years. I have a couple spots within a 10 minute drive and I can limit the trip to 1 hour which is great.. Both areas have great access points and multiple lakes/ponds. Also, I "try" to keep her weight in check. She's a tad heavy right now at 74 lbs. I have a 18 mo who is a tad below weight so I'm always feeding him. She always gets something. The swimming is as much mental as physical that is for sure.
