Well, I have an announcement. Yesterday was a big, big day for me. It started off as a regular day. Breakfast was uneventful, then I had my morning walk and poop...everything seemed to be in order.

I arrived at My Doggie Daycare Place (aka Jackland) at approximately 8:30 a.m. My father dropped me off. Everything seemed exactly as I left it.

But little did I know something would happen approximately 3.5 hours later that would be SO EPIC it would change my life forever.

Something that in a bazillion years I'd never considered. EVER.

That's right, people. I went in the pool.

Now, I'm not going to lie. I didn't exactly jump in of my own free will. My auntie Jamie was working that day and she vowed to get me in the pool this summer. I had not heard this, obviously, as I would have NEVER let her get within a 20 yards of me ever again.....but she caught me unawares.

She dunked me in and pretty soon I was flying! Well, sort of. I was swimming. SWIMMING, PEOPLE. SWIMMING. ME!!!!!

Apparently, I am an excellent swimmer. I just sort of went with the flow and all the girls who work there were, like, totally impressed with my doggie paddle prowess. Also impressed were the girls of our species, who I *think* thought I was a stud muffin for going in and being all brave and stuff. And they liked my style. My freestyle.

My only concern, and I did talk to mom about this, is that next time I would like some trunks. Maybe board shorts would be good for me. Because, see, when I got out of the water, I was all wet and my fur separated all over and dripped and the girls, they could see EVERYTHING. Which was very embarrassing for me. I ran under a deck chair.

But aside from THAT whole thing....


How ya like me now????

Oh, well now that I'm an OLD PRO, I'd love to teach you how!

Let's see....first, you jump in. Though I recommend being pushed....

Then, you flap your arms and legs like crazy like yer drownin'.

Then you make your eyes big like saucers.

Then before you know it, your doggie instincts kick in and you've gone from doing the Crazy Rat Scramble to The Doggie Paddle.

Easy, huh?

What a red letter day for you. I'm so proud of you. Sometimes we just never know how amazing we can be. It sometimes takes a shove from a loved one. I bet the ladies loved the show. wish I would have been watching.
