The Summer of Lincoln continues!

And what a summer it has been. It’s pretty much just like we all expected it woud be. Right now we’re on vacation for almost two weeks, and I get to swim whenever I want to. Which is pretty much all the time. I’m allowed to chase the ball again. I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed this, but once the ball embargo was lifted, I called game on like donkey kong, and we’ve been run, run, running ever since. Plus, we have happy hour almost every night where all the people and dogs hang out together and talk about their day at the lake.

The other really big news is that it’s my five month life saving anniversary on the 11th. Five months without a leg really have flown by. I hardly remember how it was at first, which sort of reminds me of this saying my Mom told me, “After the shadows, I await the light.” Well, thankfully I didn’t have to wait too long, because the sun came out almost immediately. Not surprising when you spend so much time AT THE LAKE!!

I don’t have to go back to the vet for another month or so, but to be honest, I don’t really even think about that. Since I feel so great, pretty much all I think about is what I’m going to do for fun…should I go to the winery, should I go for a swim, should I get somebody to throw me the ball, should I go explore in the vacant lot next door? The possibilities really are endless.

My Mom says I remind her of this saying she read once….

Death was afraid of him because he had the heart of a lion. ~ Saudi Arabian Proverb.

I sure hope she’s right!

Lincoln is a huge golden who has had one brain surgery, two ACL surgeries, and one rear leg amputation. Yikes.

  1. Lincoln the Great,

    So good to hear from you – but your posts always make me cry 😉

    I am thrilled to hear that you are having a great summer and have forgotten all about the V** word.

  2. Hey Lincoln and gang, I absolutely love your avatar and header. So handsome! What a great summer it sounds like you are having. The lake and views are so so beautiful. And by the looks of the video you have no trouble exploring them.
    Happy 5 month Ampuversary Lincoln. Keep up the great work.

  3. Oh thank goodness an update! I’ve been thinking about you and hoping your silence meant you were simply too busy swimming and running and and chasing balls and sunbathing to blog. Didn’t imagine you were scoping out wineries though 🙂

    Happy (and relieved I must admit) that you’re doing so very well! Gorgeous pictures, as usual; lovely little video moment. Thank you!

    Enjoy every single moment of your vacation.

  5. Happy 5 Month Ampuversary Lincoln! It’s so great to hear that you’re doing so well. Your video and pictures are awesome….always looking like that superhero that you are! Tell your mom that she always posts the best quotes…I bet you do have the heart of a lion.

    Here’s to more vacations and summer fun!

    P.S. I would opt to go to the winery but that’s just me!

  6. Lincoln, you are one lucky dog. It sounds like the Summer of Lincoln has been a great success – and don’t forget, you still have over a month to go until you can start the “Fall of Lincoln!!!” Wait a minute — that doesn’t sound so good. Make that the “Autumn of Lincoln.” Yeah, that sounds much better. Hoppy 5 month ampuversary – a few days late. I’m gonna go eat some go my 4 month ampuversary cake to help you celebrate.

  7. Lincoln, Hoppy 5 month Ampuversary!

    What an amazing summer you are having, swimmin, chasing the ball, hanging out at night with your pawrents.

    I heard the chauffeur talk about a movie called, The Endless Summer.

    Lincoln, I wish for you an endless summer.

    Shelby, the P.P.
