Clifford in the swimming pool pics
« on: July 16, 2008, 08:21:42 am »
Our neighbors have a pool they are happy to let me use whenever I want. They have said they don't want Clifford in. I suppose they are worried about his hair or drool or something, I don't know. Anyway they are away for the week so I just had to sneak him in once to see how he like it. He is always so eager to get to their yard I thought he would jump right in. No, he wanted to investigate the yard first and I was already in the pool calling to him, pretending to drown, etc. He's been swimming in the lake and the river, but never with anyone in with him. I wanted to see his great rescue instinct.
He did finally get in and went swimming around and didn't want to get out. However he had absolutely NO INTEREST in what ever I did to act like I needed help, etc. Oh well, good thing I'm a strong swimmer and will probably never need to be rescued.

I love the Clifford pics! I understand about sneaking him in too cuz we do that with Bear in our complex when we can.  ;D Luckily our friends with pools let him in even though their dogs won't go in.  ;)

The picture in my avatar is Clifford's happy face. I took it when he was at the park running toward me. When he runs, his ears fly, his lips flap and his eyes roll around, and he looks totally uncoordinated, it is hilarious to watch.

Isn't it amazing how they swim so effortlessly???  You pics are awesome, glad that you snuck him in the water.

Cute pics!!
I am sure they are worried about his hair ruining their filter. Be sure to clean the filter basket thing out or they will for sure know you let him in their pool.

What cute pictures!!!  Clifford knew you were joking!!  He would definately be right there if he sensed any danger.  That's how fumble was with me when i took him swimming.  no interest in me, just wanted to walk around in the ocean.  I would LOVE to see fumble gung ho swimming though.  I've only ever seen him go as far as he can touch.  I'm going to have to find someone with a pool to let me test that out!
