Paisley gets very hot, so we had been thinking about getting a pool for her. Zack didn't like his, so he passed his along for Paisley to try. She likes it! She hasn't really immersed herself in the water yet, but she wades around, and when she gets the crazies she runs splashes around in it.
After our off leash walk yesterday (see next post), she climbed into it an lay down, I think hoping it would be cool. Unfortunately I had emptied it so the water didn't get nasty. Poor doggie.
We are going to a place where she should be able to swim today, with some dogs who are water dogs (flat coated retrievers). I'm hoping she'll learn to swim with them in a safe place, so that we'll be more comfortable with her swimming in the river. I'll let you know how that goes.
