I have a Blue Heeler mix. She is 10 yrs old and is one of those true 'rowing' dogs. You know the type, always in the coaching launch, has been to more regattas than most of the team, thinks the Boathouse is home.
She's very smart, loves to swim and can usually get one of the rowers to throw something for her so she can go get it. Her favorite is the plastic water bottles the kids bring...don't set on the dock, it might not be there when you come back.
If she can't get anyone to play she will drop a bottle off the edge of the dock, watch it as it drifts down river. She will then jump in and retrieve it. She can entertain herself for quite a while...if only I could teach her to make coffee, hmmmm.
