Fun with the Dog

All I want to do today is eat and laze around. And eat some more.

I introduced my dog to his first swimming pool today. He loves to get in the creek or a pond, but he was not at ALL sure about the pool. You could tell he knew it was like a pond and he wanted to get in, but he clearly couldn’t tell how to go about it. He does this with new creeks, too–once he’s been in and been reassured that there is indeed a bottom, he’s good to go. Sometimes, I have to take his front feet and physically put them in, but he was nowhere near comfortable enough for me to do that today, so I never could convince him to get in.

Another time, when the kids and everybody are around and we’re all having fun and throwing toys….
