Does your dog love the water?!?
Mine has always loved to get wet, but she was afraid to actually swim until recently. Here’s a video of her first real swim: http://youtu.be/gANZ_KjRJQs?hd=1
ETA: ignore my annoying commentary on the video! 🙂
And here’s my pup (2 y.o. papillon mix) when she’s dry. 🙂
Let me see pics of your pups enjoying the water! 🙂

@78h2o: My dog (who will be 7 in Sept) finally went in the pool on Thursday! I really, really really wish I got some pictures and video, but I promise next time! I’m going to check out your video now. =)
ETA: I have a maltese who is 5lbs. I’m such a mama bear. FI put her in the water and I started freaking out as if she was going to sink to the bottom of the pool. Hahaha. She absolutely hates it though and looks like a drowned rat. It’s really funny.

Our dog loves to swim and it tires him out like nothing else. He is definately a retreiver because he will fetch anything you throw in the water for hours!

My dog loves the water, but is scared of waves. Fortunately, there is a dog beach near us with no waves.
Here is my little love pup, Mary!

@HawaiiBamaBride: So cute! I’m jealous that you have a beach like that near you!
@ieatunicorns: Yeah, Hailey was so tired yesterday after swimming!
@Rouquine: Aww, your maltese is cute! Hailey used to freak out when her feet couldn’t touch the bottom. You’ll have to post a video of your pup in the pool.

My pup will be a year old next month and has never had the opportunity to swim. I know she doesn’t like baths probably because of the soap and scrubbing, but she lose the hose and tries to get it in when I water the flowers.
We are going to the cottage next weekend so hopefully she will try it out there (and like it!). I will get some photos/video of it if I remember.

Our dog hates rain, hoses, etc, but show him a lake or pond and he’s all for it! He loves to swim after ducks.. lol

I wish our dog liked water! We were at the lake and he cluelessly walked off the dock into the water. Darling Husband had to jump in and save him because the dog didn’t know what to do!!

My old dog Lucy (who died six months ago) LOVED the water. She would swim all day long if you let her! Even right up until her death – when she had a difficult time moving around on land – she still loved going in the lake. (Or the pool, which she wasn’t really alllowed in, but we couldn’t keep her out!)

Our year-old lab Kane used to be afraid of water when he was a puppy, but now he loves chasing sticks in it!

@urchin: Aww, your pup is so happy about that stick!
@Beebug: OMG, love the one with the fishies!
@Irish Terrier: She’s such a pretty girl. So sorry for your loss.
@Iloveyourlovethemost: Cute! Yeah, I think my pup got over hear fear because she wanted to retrieve her ball so badly!

Jackson doesn’t like to swim much, but he loves to float!

I am so jealous of all these water-loving dogs. I took my dog to Lake Tahoe and when I put him in the water he looked at me like I was trying to murder him.

It’s winter here, so Spencer hasn’t swum yet – but he had his first bath and didn’t seem to mind that. 😉 I’ll have to show you a drowned-golden-rat picture soon!
