Due to my recent surgery,recovery period,and our recent trip,we didn`t get out on the river (Delaware) until today.Dad paddled out in front in the tube,towing me behind in the raft. It was a fun trip,much as all our past ones were until we shot a set of rapids between 2 islands. We`ve run this rapid many times before but as we were zipping thru it today,I fell overboard! Dad quickly grabbed the handle on my life jacket but even so,my head went underwater for a bit!The current was carrying us swiftly along,so all my dad could do was hang onto me until we cleared the rapid then paddle over to shallow water. He hauled me back into the raft and all was well,save for a lost dog bootie. (Booties used to prevent my claws from puncturing the raft). A bit more excitement on this trip than both of us had bargained for!
