But since dogs are allowed in the Lake, Mum and I decided to take Sunny and Gus there Friday night. It's been at least 5 years since Sunny has been swimming because Lukey became so ill. And Gus had never been swimming before! I couldn't wait to see his reaction!
They LOVED it!!! Sunny is an old pro of course. And Gus took to it like a duck to water ... or a retriever to water, hehe. Gus's only problem was when Suny swam right over him and dunked him, head and all, into the water. Poor little booger. Gus had a hard time with the concept that the ground would keep dropping away until he had to start swimming or drown ... but he finally started to grasp it.
This will definitely be something we will repeat. They had a blast, it was great exercise, and it tired Gus out totally! LOL!
