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)!

Today it is more regularly made with finely ground cement rather than limestone.
On most other residential painting you would need many more drop cloths of
varying sizes and shapes and materials. When matched against finished job by paint brushes and rollers, paint sprayers go a step further.
