On another note we took Whiskey swimming today...well kinda. We planned on taking her to the park, but there was another dog there that she is not friendly with, so we decided to go to the other people park. It is spring break so there were a lot of people and kids there. So we decided to go to the little wooded area where there is a fishing/duck pond. I took her off the leash and let her wander a little, then she spotted the birds. We leashed her back up and walked to the waters edge, before I knew it she was half way in the
yucky water and rolling around in the mud. I guess it was unofficial bath day. After letting her roll some more we loaded up in the car, went to Toys R Us and got her a kiddie plastic pool (the last one left). We got home and loaded up the pool with all sorts of toys to entice her, including a rubber ducky. She would jump in grab a toy and jump out. So...we took her inside the porch to the real pool, with doggy life vest on and boyfriend in the not so warm water we took her in. I was a nervous mother of course but daddy had it under control. He took her out just a few feet from the edge and SHE CAN SWIM! Yes I am one proud mama!! She had a hard time climbing out of the pool with the vest so we gave it a shot without it, and she can still swim and float and not sink. I'm sorry I had my doubts I thought she would sink. She wasn't too fond of the water in he first place, but she is getting better and daddy had fun with her. So here are pictures of her first swimming lesson. We have a lake house and I can NOT wait until we go up there with her.
