They Can Swim!
« on: August 11, 2006, 05:34:07 am »
A couple of weeks ago, here in the UK, it was the Ragley Water Trials. As you know, my lot have never been too fond of swimming, even though we are members of a working group! So we didn't bother to entre them in anything.

But there was a part of the lake set aside to cool the dogs off, as it has been unusually hot over here! Guess what? All three of mine decided they loved water, so much so that I nearly got dragged in by Kitten when I was holding him back!!! Are dogs awkward or what ::)

Here are some photos of my lot with either the mad husband (Martin) or our youngest Nikki. Molly "rescued" both of them like she had been doing it all her life, when in fact this was the first time she had ever done it!!

I have also attached some photos of the dogs paw prints that we did in cement in the garden, as I meant to add them to the other thread I did!! ;)
Mum to Molly, Honey and Kitten
RIP my darling Bronte

How Cool! 
My rotties don't like water much either...I hear they're supposed to though.
