Here are photos of the pups’ Labor Day Weekend swim. Both were a little nervous at first, but they got the hang of paddling with their back legs and, eventually, their front legs, too. On this first outing, each was supported by a human — no completely solo “swims” yet, but we hope to get there. Ouzo seemed to enjoy swimming more than Sassafras, but that’s not surprising given that Ouzo often tries to jump into the bath tub or shower! Sassafras greatly preferred exploring the pool deck area and jumping in the landscaping more than swimming in the pool…
Thanks again to our hosts, Liz & Bill!

I wish my puppy loved water as much as Ouzo does! We got our Puli puppy about 2 months ago and he just hasn’t gotten used to water yet. Maybe it’s just not his thing.
Hi Sally — Sounds like your pup and Sassafras are both landlubbers! Now that we’re getting into fall, it’s a little too brisk to keep up the outdoor swimming here, but I’m planning some bathtub “swims.” I realize that perhaps Sassa will never love the water, so my only goal is to get him comfortable enough that he doesn’t panic.
