Housatonic River

Saturday morning I awoke to pappa calling my name, telling me it was time to go. No clue where,but I am ready and willing anytime for the word "Go". Mamma was already in the car.

I am sure you doggies already know by now, how much I love rivers and swimming...well, usually we go to the dogpark nearby our house, to swim in the river there, but the rivers is slowly vanishing, because of too little rain, and or global warming, so there is not much to swim in there anymore :o/, which makes me very sad. There is one river still that usually is so big that you can still swim in it even if there are no rain. I have never been there, but I have dreamt about it from the time Mamma told me it existed...well Saturday was the day I was going to get to see it.
It took about 40 minutes for us to get there in our car.

Usually you can not see the rocks in the water, but even
the Housatonic is very low.

in the you see me?
Here I am pretending to fish for salmon. Mamma said that there are Russian salmon that lives in this river. Don't ask me how they got all the way from Russia to here, I guess they have to be very good swimmers.
If you ever want to go to visit this river, you should also know about this place, A little town called

On our way home we stopped here, but I was so sleepy from all the swimming that I did not even want to get out of the car, but mamma thought maybe
all the doggie mamma's would be interested in this little place in Kent:
