23/52/14 Ralph the brave!

23/52/14 Ralph the brave!
When Ralph was first rescued he would never get his feet wet if he didn't have to. He would go out of his way to avoid puddles and leap over streams.
After a year we decided to see if we could entice Ralph into wading into the ocean. We took Ralph and his girlfriend Aspen to a beach at low tide and waded out into the shallows. Aspen was very happy to follow us out. After much coaxing Ralph ventured out. The water was only a few inches deep as it was a long low beach. We had the dogs running back and forth and Ralph finally started to enjoy himself.
Ralph now readily will venture into the water on his own, but he won't go very deep.
He can swim, but chooses not to. He has come a long way our brave boy!
