Mojo Rising, Louise’s boyfriend the champion dock diver boy/lab next door, got a dock diving dog pool. Lulu and Sofie have never been in a pool (except the one time when Sofie was a puppy and jumped in the family pool to save Mommy from herself). They’re allowed in this pool because it is for dogs. Lulu was having no part of it, but Sofie, after a little coaching, jumped in. She freaked when she realized, unlike the river, she could not touch the bottom (it is 4 feet all around) and had to swim. Wish I could have photographed the look on her face when she first dog paddled to me with ‘Mom, how do I get out of this thing?” but I was too busy worrying about her. Once she refound the steps, which are big lab-leg height (she had to pull herself up with all her little Sheltie weight), she was fine. She jumped in again a little later for a second try.
Louise? Well, I guess she is more land hound than water lab. BOL.
This is a blog hop. I hopped it from Snoopy’s DogBlog. Check them out for more mischief.
