    My Izzy isn't normally a swimmer, she'll go knee deep and chicken out.

    Imagine my surprise yesterday when we tried encouraging her to go in the water, expecting nothing, and this is what we get!

    Our dane won't even put his toes in - the other two (staffie and westie) are proper water babies, and we have to drag them out!

    Wow that's great! Mine's not a water-dog either, although she's sometimes willing to get in up to her tummy if another dog is in the water. It was quite funny today when she was wading in a muddy puddle after another dog and fell in a dip and got much wetter than she bargained for! :D

    My first two were reluctant to get in properly so I'm afraid they had a gentle push in from this block as babies :yikes: The youngsters just followed suit and all three are total water babies.
