This dog is actually used to camping every day by swimming across the lake.
Thunder’s daily ritual is as much fun as it is cute. This dog is actually used to camping every day, swimming across the lake that separates it. He is always warmly welcomed there.
Labrador Retrievers are excellent swimmers, and Thunder is no exception, according to Dodo. An ability that the latter makes good use of during daily visits to camping regulars, including Amanda Vermeer.
She has worked there for a long time and continues to visit the premises as a client. Therefore, she knows this dog very well and is no longer surprised to see that she swims.
The house of Thunder’s owners is located on the opposite shore of the lake, and the four-legged one makes the transition every day, either in the sun or in the rain.
The 10-year-old Labrador’s family has repeatedly tried to stop him for his safety, but he systematically manages to find a way to avoid their surveillance and dive into a body of water to check on the campers.
Amanda Vermeer is convinced that Thunder’s favorite part of the adventure is swimming. She thinks he also enjoys “walking from camp to camp, saying hello to everyone and seeing how far he can go before being caught up” by his trainers.
He also receives treats, which also should not cause him discontent.
As soon as he arrives at the campsite, the regulars, who almost all have his phone number, call the owner of the Thunder to let him know.
Soon after, he arrives to pick him up in a van. The dog never swims home.
This is something his master would like to teach him, as he recently confided to Amanda Vermeer in a message, where he also explained that he would never forbid him from swimming because that’s what he likes. .
“He is always so proud of himself when he reaches the shore and comes out of the water, as if he says: “Tada! Look, I’ve arrived!” Amanda Vermeer laughs.
