|Rocky LOVED the water!!! If it was the beach, it was heaven Even a pond, he would be straight in there splashing around and terrifying any poor creatures living in there
His eyes lit up whenever he saw water (the dirtier the better)... In the rain he would walk for miles, drinking out of puddles as we went
But put him in a bath and oh Dog... That was a whole different story lol... He was a very big dog so trying to keep him in it was a nightmare! I would end in soaked to the bone, in the bath with him as he tried to climb over my shoulder to get out the tub... And afterwards, he wouldn't speak to me for the rest of the night lol.
I only ever bathed Rocky when he got super muddy... Or decided to chase a fox and roll in whatever it left behind :o/
Dexter is a whole different story... He HATES water... Any kind if water, except rain.
The family who owned him previous to me, told me he fell in a pond when he was younger and hasn't gone near anything like it, since. I have a pond in my garden but he wouldn't even round the corner where the pond is. I've been working with him and now he's brave enough to drink out of it, but that's it!
If we go to the beach, Dexter doesn't even look at the water... It's like it's not there :o/ But when I bath him, he's a superstar Doesn't whine, doesn't move and doesn't shake all over me to distract me before jumping over me to escape, like Rocky... Dexter just enjoys the attention lol...
Rocky and Dexter were complete opposites
Now I have Skipper!
Doesn't much care for a bath but doesn't struggle to much... Takes major zoomed afterwards though lol...
He too fell in the pond when he was really small, but didn't bat an eyelid... Just swam round it a couple of times before getting out on his own
He hasn't been to the beach yet but when he sees muddy water whilst on a walk, he loves it
Rain is another story... He hates it. He will sit at the back door and watch Dexter run around the garden without taking a step outside (living in Scotland, I really have to break this habit, otherwise he'll be a house dog lol)... If I do finally get him to go outside, he will lick the concrete for about five seconds, run on to the grass, pee and then run straight back inside lol...
Gosh, that was a long one lol...
