Who said Frenchies can't swim?

Most people think that swimming is a skill that all dogs naturally have, just as barking is (for the record, I never bark). Whoever first coined the term doggy paddle was very misinformed, dogs do NOT swim. Maybe, some dogs are naturally amphibious, born with a set of fins and lungs able to breathe in water . . . I have yet yo see that at the pool. I think most dogs will sink like a sack of bricks when tossed into the swimming pool . . . just like me!

All knowledgable scholars have announced that Frenchies do NOT know how to swim!!! For some reason my family still insists that I learn how to swim!

My first swimming lesson involved me frantically kicking and making splashes 10 feet high. I thought I had done something bad that is why my family is torturing me!

Fast forward 3 months . . . I am able to swim!
I would like to add, I can swim - I do NOT like to swim!!!

Check out my swimming video (above my page at My Video)!
