I Believe I Can Fly - The Labrador Song

 I believe I can fly

 I believe I can touch the sky

 I think about it every night and day
 Spread my wings and fly away

I believe I can soar

I see me running through that open door

 I believe I can fly

 I believe I can fly
 I believe I can fly

Lyrics by R. Kelly

    wwwwwwwwaaahhhhooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.... hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. Those were beautiful first we were worried when we saw that title. stella rose

  3. I've always wondered, did you ever put Barkley in a water-jump competition? I know he had an orange collar, like one of the dogs in the photos above.

    1. Barkley did a little unofficial "dock dog" action, though he was more "belly flop dog". Once you got him the water, he did NOT want to come out.

  4. Wow - look at those dogs fly!!! Scheel's had a dock diving exhibition here a few weeks ago - Mom says it was so much fun to watch the dogs leap and soar above the water.

    Woos - Ciara and Lightning

  5. OMD, I thoughts that top one was you for a sec gurl!!! Mighty impressive!!!! I saw an Airedale do that once, butts I don't thinks they got as far as the Labs....don't ask me to do it though...I'm allergic to waters..BOL!!

    Yours sincerely,
