Meet Moxie, a 10-13-year old American Staffordshire Terrier and the inspiration for the character of Luna in my newest novel The Weredog Whisperer.
Moxie has arthritis and doesn't walk so well anymore, but swimming is right up her bayou, so to speak. She wears a doggy float vest so that she can swim continuously for thirty minutes at a time without the stress and strain of trying to keep herself buoyant in the water.
One of her favorite games is "keep away" with a tennis ball. She'll also "fetch" in the pool and will even tell us when she wants to swim by dropping the tennis ball by the pool steps.
