Doggie (Stand-Up) Paddling!

meena-paddle-boarding

Paddling boarding is so fun, but paddling boarding with your pup is even better. Since I run and hike with my dog Meena, why not take her paddle boarding? My dog is fat. When she walks her bum waddles a bit, and her stomach bounces back and forth. Almost weighing as much as me, I was skeptical I could get her to SUP. Equipped with her life jacket, Meena plopped on the board with her tail eagerly wagging, and a big grin on her face. It didn’t take much coaxing at all. She really kept her balance, which is more than I can say about my first time.
So here it is, a snap shot of Meena and I cruising the Newport Backbay on Independence Day.
( This picture was taken just before she jumped off the board and threw me into the water…. It was good while it lasted!)
