Going back into the depths of this thread I saw a lifeboat picture which reminded me that we went along to the RNLI Dungeness Open Day waaaay back in 2014, they'd just got a new boat earlier that year and were showing it off.

In hindsight this might not have been the best idea. He is obsessed with water now!!

 

First time I've seen a slipway used to launch a dog!  🤣

 

Sam had his first immersion the other day.

 

I was talking to someone on the towpath and they asked his name. "Sam" said I "SAM" they shouted back, and Sam though they were calling him so just walked straight off my mooring disappearing under the water and reappearing halfway across the cut.

 

Fortunately he returned to base when I called his name and managed to drag himself out.

 

He didn't seem to enjoy the experience and has avoided going close to the edge since.
