A German Shepherd Story - GSD Stinger

GSD Stinger - Please enjoy this wonderful little story sent in by one of our readers about her senior GSD Stinger.

This is Stinger, our 13 year old female German Shepherd who we like to call AquaDog or "the 7th buoy".

She earned these names because every morning when my husband goes out in his boat to slaalom ski on the ski course right in front of our dock, Stinger jumps in and swims after him.

As the boat goes up and down through the course, she is convinced she can catch it, swimming down-course and up-course as the boat whisks by pulling my husband through the course.

A slaalom course has 6 buoys, and we consider her the 7th:) After a few years of this, we bought her a life-jacket to make her travels a little safer and now she is the bright yellow 7th buoy.
