Sophie's beautiful! My Maggie loves to swim -- we have lots of retention ponds here in Florida and, when Maggie was younger, she would pull and pull towards the ponds, eager to get in. Unfortunately, those same retention ponds are home to alligators! Like Sophie is showing, the first time Maggie went swimming, her "doggie paddle" kicked in right away.
Those are great! She's so adorable. I love the one of her on the tree stump. She looks so tiny. And I think it's great that she'll swim. Jersey loves the beach and will wade in the water (once the chicken gets past those HUGE 2 inch "waves" we have here on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico... :rolleye11: ). But if she can't touch the bottom, she's not a happy camper.
Thanks everyone. She has been a very good dog so far. The tree stump is pretty big. It was 2 maples together. She swims pretty well but I am not so sure that she enjoys it. when we put her down on the ground she goes for the warm deck in the sun and shivers a little. She doesn't come back to look to go swimming again. She doesn't fight it when we out her in it either. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif
