This Dogue can Swim
« on: August 15, 2005, 01:27:24 pm »
 ::)HAwk did his best Baywatch Hawaii impression at the beach yesterday. He runs like a little maniac down the sand then veers off suddenly to swim out into the deep. He just enjoys swimming around, out for a relaxing dip. Just wanted to share these pics and prove that even though he's 100 lbs (@8 Months!) he swims like a little champion!!!

Those are awesome pics! My two love water too, we were at the dog park the other day and there is a little ravine there. Well the 2 took off into the woods dispite our calls, and then 2 minutes later 2 very wet dogs come crashing out of the woods.  ;D It was too funny to be mad at.

Your Rottie CAN swim! We had to teach ours to swim but it can be done. Kane, who passed away 2 years ago, sunk at first. But, then we physically got in the pool with him and moved his feet for him. He got it!!! You can do it!

He swam once in a river with a fast current and my husband had to get him.After that he just wades. I have been trying to get a dog life jacket for him. I will have to take him to the lake myself and if something happened I would not be able to lift him.
We had a rotti once that we had to teach to swim too. It took a few times but she got it. She got my leg with her nails too. I had these weird bruises for like two weeks.
I would love to see more pics of your dogs!!!

You have a beautiful dogue!!  I hope my Louie and Bella grow up to look just as nice.  Here is a picture of me and Louie (6 months).  They both love to swim as well, and I have many pics of them swimming!
