Riptide at 12 Years

Breed: Chesapeake Bay RetrieverWeight: 97 pounds
Gender: Male
Story: Riptide has been an amazing “athlete” his whole life – he has hiked and run and swam miles upon miles over the course of his life! He has been on every summer vacation our family goes on for the last 11 years….and we travel from Northern Indiana to the Atlantic Ocean (mid-Atlantic area) each year, where he absolutely LOVES the beach, swimming, digging in the sand! His birthday is in April and every year for his birthday he gets a trip to Lake Michigan so he can swim and play in the sand! Since he is a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, he will “swim” in a puddle of water if you let him! Two years ago, Riptide tore his ACL. He had TPLO procedure and so it slowed him down re: the running and hiking, but he can still swim w/ the best of them. At the age of 13, we are pretty pleased that he is still with us and healthy. He has arthritis, but other than that he is in good health! Riptide’s obsession with exercise and running/playing has transformed into an obsession with food and treats in his old age! He has been eating FRR for over 10 years and loves his food, and we give him Jubilee Wafers as snacks, which he also loves!
