Do not feed the alligators? I don't think we needed to be told that. But I did watch my puppies back for any eyes peeping out of the water. One person had said they'd seen an alligator, but that was the only person.
Xena met a couple of friends. She actually acknowledged them - and then watched them in the water. We could not get her to go in, even along the shore. Then the owner of one of these dogs walked into the water. Of course, Xena followed him. We were like parents watching their kid take their first steps!
|They appear to be discussing getting in the water.|
|A toe is in!|
|She likes it!|
She finally took the complete plunge. She could not get enough. She was actually digging holes in the sand under the water!
|She learned how to cool off quickly.|
|Friends of all sizes.|
|She is blessing her new friend with lake water.|
We definitely approve of the Gulf Shores dog park. We'll be here again and again! A lot of shade areas for the people. A small agility course. And, of course, the lake. BUT they did not have any source of water - so bring your own.
