Actually she is wearing her winter coat we are still snowed under...we only went to the marina today for picture taking, I have a thing about lighthouses ....but ....she does have a life jacket and loves to go out on the boat in the summer....pic of her and her sisters on the beach last summer....She is way adorable!!! I love the little life vest. My boyfriend & I are really into canoeing/kayaking, so I think we'll definitely be getting my Ote a life vest so she can join us on our trips! That is if we can find one small enough! LOL. How does your Chi like being on the water?
